I love yarn!

I love yarn, I love great yarn. I love yarn that I can have on sale. This week a couple things have arrived at a great price. One of which is from Kertzer, one of my favorite companies, Perth is merino wool and acrylic that if you are careful will wash in the machine.
21 colours arrived, its an Aran weight (18 sts and 26 rows to 4") any aran pattern will work. Sales rep extraordinaire delivered it yesterday.
Although I am really proud of the selection of yarn I have here at the store. I do have my favourites, this will be one of them.
My list of favourites:
Mission Falls 1824 wool
Noro Silk Garden anything
Ultra Alpca light
Mirasol Project anything, great cause amazing yarn.
Regia the colourways
Briggs and Little..because its Canadian and dependable
and despite being 100% acrylic, I have to admit I do like Marble, washable and fun.
That's my list this week.
What do 3 yarn store owners do when they meet for shop!
I met with 'On the Lamb and Log Cabin Yarns and Music' for lunch last week, we shared ideas and had a great time!

I loved your store when I was in last Saturday. It was hard to only buy a few balls for making socks. I meant to have a look at the "turbo" needles you sell, but forgot. What makes them different from regular circulars? I use circular needles to make my socks two at a time.

addi turbos are wonderful, they are very smooth and the circulars have very tidy joins and the cables are very flexible. Only problem with turbos are that you can't stop at just one set. Worth the price if you knit all the time.
