So we've had a really big week here at Alpaca With A Twist! On Wednesday, a huge order of Socrates came in and we worked like crazy people trying to get all of the orders out the same day. Luckily for us, our favorite UPS guy ever, Chris, was running late and we were able to process and pack all but three but the time he got there. So you should be getting your backordered Socrates any second now!
But the really exciting news...somewhere hidden in those 26 boxes of sock yarn were 2 new colors, 0409 (Oil Slick) and 0292 (Coco Bean). I got to name these yarns and I'm so excited with how well they go with some of our other colors like 0100 (Natural) 0208 (Khaki) and 0403 (Charcoal). I'd really love to make a men's sweater out of all of these colors in a fun but very manly stitch pattern. (I just need a man I like well enough to knit a sweater for!)
If that's not totally awesome enough, we have also finish a couple more shawls for a series of patterns we are doing that use one jumbo hank of Baby Twist! Stay tuned for some pictures!
