Teva Durham's luscious yarns have arrived as well as her outstanding book of patterns. She has large projects - ankle length duster, anyone - or small projects - tiny shrugs. The colors are very fashion forward and will coordinate well with many of the hot fall colors: browns, a blue green, rich eggplant, grey, cream, and raspberry.

Another great arrival is the Superior from Filatura di Crossa. Superior got a superior review from Knitter's Review. It is a brushed cashmere with silk. Superior substitutes for Kid Silk Haze. It has great yardage, too: 329 yds per ball. One ball will make a lovely lace scarf. Four can make a sweater. It is under $30 per ball. For cashmere and that yardage, it is a good deal.

Last but not least, Sublime. We have two yarns in the Sublime line of yarns. A DK made of cashmere, silk and merino and lovely mohair. The colors are rich and subtle. Come quickly it has been flying off the shelves.
