Is it Fall now?

I don't know about you, but Fall is my favorite season. Time to get out the handknits and wear the funky socks I've made in the past year and time to knit in earnest for the holidays! I found the bottomless basket of sock yarns at my house this past week and there's no way they can all be socks! If you're on Ravelry, check out some of Stephen West's luscious small kerchief-type shawls, and Evelyn Clark's, too. These two designers have come up with some fabulous ways to use up 100gm of sock-weight yarn. I've already made three, with more to come!

Speaking of Ravelry, if you're not too sure about how to use all of its features, I'm bringing my laptop to our Stitch-in this coming Friday night (9/18 from 6-8pm). I'll set it up and give you all some tips on how to use this fabulous resource. See you there!

Oh, one more thing: we've marked all the yarns we had on 25% discount down to 40% off and added a few more to tempt you! See you around the sale tables!

Labor Day

Okay, it's September already. September! Either I'm getting really old or time is flying by (no comments from the peanut gallery!). Anyway, this is just a note to remind you all that the shop will be closed on Monday, Sep 7 for the Labor Day holiday. Enjoy a day off with your family - but before that, come check out the new Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool and Hempathy yarns. These have been a couple of my all-time favorites for a few years now. Both are DK weight, perfect for those in-between-seasons sweaters and wraps. Hempathy also makes great lacy washcloths for your gift-giving pleasure.

And, our fall sale is still in effect through Sunday and there's lots of good stuff left at great prices. See you this weekend!
