So, here is the official shot of The Uptown Sweater, designed by Shawn Glidden. It appears on the Home page of our new website, Launch date: May 18, 2009!

Everything has not yet arrived for the new shop, but there is enough to open, so we are going ahead and will be beefing up categories as we go. Patterns, for instance, will be uploaded this week. We are going to have quite a few wonderful sock patterns from Barb Brown. Barb has the wonderful ability to make use of a yarn's intrinsic qualities as she creates unique patterns. For instance, color variations of handdyed yarns used against black or white solids in patterns which are really not difficult to knit; they only look that way. I am very happy with all of Barb's work, and always eager to see her next design.

Shawn Glidden, too, is the same sort of designer and when I hear what she is thinking up next, it is such a pleasure. She, too, is a careful designer (like Barb) and her sense of style is young and well-considered at the same time giving us designs which are classic in line and creative in pattern.

I have to say that I am enjoying meeting the designers and dyers and getting to know more about them as time goes on. Babies, hobbies, talents in other-than-fiber areas, etc. This is another perk of working on the Internet and creating new working relationships across the globe!
