• Coffee, Cookies and Counting

Well our 2008 inventory count is pretty much done. Anina is the official “Inventory Queen” having logged over 12 hours in Point Grey on Wednesday and countless additional hours in Edgemont. She’s about to head off to cruise around the Caribbean so she’ll soon get some well-deserved R & R.

None of us were looking anywhere close to glamorous on inventory day so photos were hard to come by, however, I managed to snap a few shots. Here are Becky and Valerie, diligently counting away:

Cathy was hard at work as well:

Kathleen also slogged it out the whole day and well into the evening but she refused to have her photo taken. And here’s the Inventory Queen, clipboard in hand:

We drank too much coffee, ate too many cookies (at least I did) and counted way too much yarn. But the good thing is that with inventory now behind us we can unpack tons of boxes of exciting new products.

We recently opened some big cartons of Louet. We have the Gems sportweight that’s 100% merino wool:

This is a fantastic yarn with excellent stitch definition. It’s spun with a tight twist to minimize pilling while maintaining a high elasticity. It knits to a gauge of 5 – 6 stitches per inch on 3.25m – 3.75m needles. And best of all, it’s machine washable and dryable.

We also have the Louet Euroflax sportweight that’s 100% linen. This is one of the best quality linen yarns available. The yarn is double-boiled and steam processed to ensure maximum softness. It knits to a gauge of 6 stitches per inch on 2.75m – 3.5m needles. It’s also machine washable and dryable.

We have an extensive colour assortment of both Euroflax and Gems. We think these Louet yarns will be a popular addition to our collection. Drop by and have a look!
