Prism's Saki and Merino Mia

I have been working feverishly today to load Prism's Saki and Merino Mia. Saki is completely loaded with pictures. It is 440 yards of 75%Merino and 25% Nylon. You can go to my website, and click on "Yarn Shop" and then "Shop Online". They are both listed under Sock Yarns. I will try to get the rest of Merino Mia uploaded tomorrow. It is a daunting task! I'll also be loading the Lace Wool...which is very popular and amazingly beautiful! Be sure to check the website weekly for our newest additions!

I've been on there all afternoon and loving every minute of it. now that I've come into the 21st (or later) century...I'm hooked. Wow...a Blog and Facebook all in the same week. Imagine that!
