    No, actually, I have already ordered most or our spring yarns.  Sounds crazy, but it's true.  Thomas and David, who bring us the beautiful yarns from Noro, Elsebeth Lavold, and Louisa Harding were both here last month,  and Berroco Bob just now left the shop.  It helps me to see these reps early because not only can I re-order stuff that's already sold out (like 15 colors of Vintage) but I can see yarns together that might not typically share space on the table--it really gets the creative juices flowing.

    Mixing yarns is true synergy - the result is so much greater than the sum of its parts.  For instance, take Chris Bylsma's Twenty-Four Seven Jacket. Worked in a single strand of heavy worsted yarn it would be nice, but when you look at the wonderful combinations that you get when you mix a solid worsted with a fingering weight (or a dk with a dk) you get so much more.  Not only is it more interesting and more beautiful, it's infinitely more fun to to pick out the yarns.  For instance, Berroco Origami and Rowan Pure Wool dk.  What a gorgeous effect they have together!  

     Not only does the Origami give an extra boost to the color, it adds a really wonderful texture.  So, although the Origami is actually a spring yarn, I'm having it come now so we can play with it.  Look how beautiful it is with the Cuzco.
