New Yarn Today, Live Music Tomorrow

Today was a big day for new yarns at LYS! We got boxes and boxes of Brown Sheep Company's Lamb's Pride in the worsted weight. It came as 4 ounce (190 yards), reeled skeins. You can really see the shine from the mohair and the colors are beautiful.
The Opal sock yarn in the Harry Potter colorways came, too, along with an incomprehensible German poster. We all sort of can't stand that there isn't a Hermione colorway, I mean, WHAT? Nevertheless, they're all pretty groovy and should knit up pretty nice.
You'd think I'd take my camera to the shop every once in a while...but not this time! Pics soon, and the yarn will be on the shelves tomorrow (and, hey, if it's not, you can buy it out of the boxes!).
Tomorrow night is 3rd Friday in Lancaster. Lots of shops and galleries stay open late and host live music. So, we're jumping on the bandwagon, and hosting The Wringers tomorrow, November 21 between 7 and 9 p.m.
The Wringers are an old time music duo, I happen to be married to 1/2 of the band. That would be Bob. Mike Witmer is the other 1/2 of the Wringers, (he happens to be MaryKay's husband) and also the painter responsible for the beautiful paintings hanging in the shop.
Stop in with your knitting & get an earful of oldtime!
Happy Knitting!

What an awesome day, Wen! When I get home from the shop, I put the pictures in this group: feel free to use any of them for your blogs at any time.

You should just be able to right click on the picture, scroll down and click "Properties" then copy the image location. Then paste that into your picture tool on your blog.
