At the outset, I will be listing DPNs for socks (US 0 and US 1), 32" circulars in US 8 (5mm) and will check to see what other sizes are in stock when I order more... please send your requests in so I know what is popular.

I have US 8 in stock now: they didn't have any of the other sizes I ordered & I didn't know about that, so was not able to order different sizes instead of the ones I did order. Oops!

Photos tomorrow: I would have taken them today but I had to re-install my camera's driver.

I can also get Greenhowe pattern books... they will be $6.50 or $9.50...

I have the Twilleys Cotton Freedom book and it costs $9.50...

I hope to have these all coded on the website over the next couple of days. Email me if you want any of the stuff listed above!

Computer was down all week

Well, the computer was down all week and after trying different things, GARY finally got it working... first I bought a used 10 gig hard drive on Tuesday, and that only got it running marginally... Gary did a bunch of stuff including re-installing windows and this afternoon picked up a new modem and now at least we can get online... so if anyone tried emailing any of us about anything you wanted to order, try again! I don't THINK we lost any email in the process, but if you wrote & have not heard back from us, PLEASE write again!

I don't know how much work we'll be able to do on the websites for the next few days, I'm sure Gary is still going to want to struggle with the system (maybe he should wait until Mercury is totally out of retrograde??) but if there is something on either Weaving Rainbow or Tornadowood that you want & you can't order it, click on one of the email links... I know the Kertzer scarf kit link is not working properly, so if you want one of those, please let me know!

If anyone has been wondering "what ever happened to that rug hooking pattern?" well... I had wanted to do a painting or color drawing of the design to go along with the pattern but I found out that I need a LITTTTTTTTTTLE bit more practice in either colored pencil or/and painting... the color drawing I did looked more like something a 2nd or 3rd grader could have done... so unless I hook the pattern or come out with a good color version, I'm going to wait before making my rug hooking pattern available for sale.. if you'd like Cat Looking Out Window on Monk's cloth in the 15" by 20" size, email me & I'll fix one up for you...

I can get bamboo needles, and will have more information about them soon. Let me know what size you're interested in and whether you want straights, double pointed (5 pcs, 6" or 8") or circulars (40 cm, (16") 60 cm (24") and 80cm (32"))...

The DPNs are available starting at 2mm (US 0) through 6.5mm (10-1/2),
The single points are available in 2.25mm (1 US) all the way through 20mm (35 US!!)

The circulars are available starting at 3mm to 12mm (17 US)

Prices vary depending on size... I will be getting the sizes needed in the circulars and straights to go with the kits plus 1 or 2 sizes up and down for those who are loose or tight knitters, plus some DPNs for sock knitting...

Typos included!!

Eventually I will have all of these products on the website, but it will take time!
