Just in time for your Spring and Summer knit and crochet projects we are closing out our inventory of Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton. We need to made room for know yarns that are arriving so we have decided to offer this wonderful yarn to you at a fantastic price of $4.00. It was $6.50 per ball and this is the best price for this yarn any place on the internet. I checked. 100% cotton, machine washable, worsted weight, 96 yards per ball, 4.5 stitches on US# 8 needle. Purchase quickly to get your choice of colors while we have availablility. we only have a few colors left. the yarn is wonderful to work with and you can see it knit up in my circular knitting prject. It knits up light which is nice because many of the cotton yarns fell heavy when you knit with them and the yarn is very, very soft. http://patchworkfrog.com/debbieblissvarn.html#DBPureCotton

How often have you been ready for that next knit or crochet project but just couldn’t figure out exactly what you wanted to make.
Please check out our new and updated “kits” section. We discovered many exciting designers at TNNA this year and we have put together a wonderful collection of kits for you. Some of them are one skein, quick projects easy to carry along and some are a bit more time consuming but all are simple enough even for the advanced beginner with easy to read and follow instructions. We only picked companies offering what in our opinion are the nicest yarns with the best drape so that your garment will be truly special. http://patchworkfrog.com/knitandcrochet%20kits.html
I really cant wait to get started. At TNNA I visited the maggi Knits booth where they had lots of Maggi's shawls and wraps knit up and available to try on. Once you have put one oof these on you won't want to take it off. I picked out one called the London scarf which is one of her new designs to be my own project and will be posting pictures as soon as I get the yarn on my needles. Unfortunately i am forcing myself to finish up a gift first. I am knitting the Prima Ballerina sweater, a Sassy Skein Pattern, http://patchworkfrog.com/sassyskein.html,this time in just one color with no stripes. I will post a picture when I finish the sweater. I am using a bright pink dk weight yarn, Sirdar Snuggly. This will be a gift for a one year old. Hopefuly the knitting will go quickly so that I can move to something just for me.
