The best part of this job... opening the parcels that arrive thick and fast this time of year, ready for the main winter knitting season. Yesterday the first instalment of our recent Designer Yarns order arrived. Inside the box were some new colours of Debbie Bliss Rialto DK, some new shades of lovely, mohairy Angel, some Angel prints (the multi version) and the fab, new scarf yarn, Bolero.

The photos aren't great, but here goes:

My favourite Angel shade is the rich gold, which is squashed down at the bottom of the pile, but they're all pretty. We've held the price at £8.25, despite a recent rise in the rrp.

On the right are the six shades of Bolero that we bought, along with the sample scarf I've started knitting up. It's kind of like Rico Loopy, but with a gipsyish edge to it. One 100g ball of Bolero makes a scarf and it costs just £5.95.

Later in the week the Adriafil should arrive and then more Designer Yarns and then...I love this time of year!
