Discontinued yarns

About 60% of the yarns I use in my store are discontinued.
The ever so popular loose weave cotton shrugs above, have Sadly I've just found out, become a discontinued yarn,
So my stash has therefore this morning increased ten fold, whilst I searched the internet for remaining stock. and quickly diminished funds in my bank account.
The only good thing about using discontinued yarns is it helps to keep my styles fresh, cause obviously as one yarn disappears i have to replace this with another suitably gorgeous replacement. But it' still gives you the feeling of having your favourite cake taken off the shelves at your local bakery. ie: Panic.

So if you've had your eye on any of the cotton loose weave shrugs, now is the time to pick one up, as stock is quite limited, and won't be replenished in these shades again.

Ok, I'm hoping I've completed my obsession with knitting halternecks

Ok, I promise for the moment this is the last knitted Halter Neck, I will however, be making some re-constructed musical t.shirts, one in red, and one in white, but that won't be for a couple of weeks, so for now. halter neck making is complete....... ;-)

linen halterneck

I thought i'd knit up another of my linen halter necks, I've made a couple of these in darker tones about 2 years ago, This one, is a delicate mix of pinks, peach, slivery blue, gold, and tan.
It looks much better on a human rather than my stiff model here, so If i' have time later I'll take a couple of piccies,
