BRRR! IT'S SCARF SEASON!

BRRR! Baby, it's cold outside! And that's GREAT! That means we get to knit and wear wonderful scarves, cowls, hats, mittens, and shawls to keep us and our loved ones warm. Today, the lovely MARY JO SMITH stopped in to show us her completed FEZA ALP PREMIERE SCARF. What a beauty!  The colors and textures are so vibrant and fun they brighten up any winter's day. Thanks for sharing, Mary Jo:) Coming very soon to Woolwinders: a huge order of CASCADE YARNS including more BABY ALPACA CHUNKY and CHUNKY PAINTS, MAGNUM PAINTS, CHERUB ARAN, 220 SUPERWASH and 220 PAINTS! Great for those scarves, cowls, hats, mittens, and shawls but let's not forget perfect for sweaters and afghans as well!
