A bit disappointed.

And I bet you will be, too. I'm afraid there are no pictures of the City of Roses sock sample, nor of last night's Girasole KAL. Mostly because we had to cancel when the A/C gave out. But, to make up for this deficit, we do have super-dooper Top Secret (can you keep a secret?) screen shots of our new website...

Let's start with the new Yarn page navigation:

Knit Purl yarn page

Where knitters can browse yarns by weight, fiber content, and brand. Need something vegan? Now you can find the perfect animal-free yarn with just a click of the mouse. Or maybe you are a sock fanatic and want to see all the fingering weight (or Superwash Merino!) yarns we carry - this fabulous page will do all the work for you.

Then, when you narrow down your selection, the "pop-up" information feature will tell you all about the yarns in that category, without having to click on them!

Knit Purl Bamboo

Scrolling over each yarn line brings up a short description of the yarn that includes it's brand and price. Then, once you've found the perfect yarn, the really cool thumbnail color cards come into play...

Knit Purl BS Bamboo

Just click on a thumbnail and watch the larger image appear above. It's a little like magic (especially to us). But that's not everything (not even close!) we have in store for you with this new website.

There are going to be some amazing surprises in the new site, but we don't want to ruin it. So, please be patient, as the new site will be up soon for your viewing (and surfing) pleasure. Maybe we'll even have a contest. See how many of the new options people can find... Hmm, doesn't that sound promising?
