Spring Sidewalk Sale
With spring in mind, I want to clean out the shop to make room for new yarns. Starting this Saturday, through next Friday, April 24, stop by to check out the Spring Sidewalk Sale. I'm making a long list of beautiful yarns to move out to the sidewalk and mark down to 20% - 30% OFF. Come in to see some surprise sales inside as well.
Yarn of the Month!

This super soft chunky merino makes the only hat my better half will wear. It took years to find the perfect combination of yarn and pattern. Since then several of you have treated your men to this very warm winter hat. It makes a quick and portable project for spring and summer knitting. Ask me for the pattern, free with purchase of the yarn. Stop by to see several samples.
Also check out these popular samples of this gorgeous yarn next time you're here!
Happy St. Patty's Day! Here's a slightly modified limerick by Celia Warren.
Needing socks, should a gal feel a twit
If she sits down to circular knit?
Balls of wool - just unfurl one,
Cast on - knit one, purl one -
Five needles - turn heels - and that's it!
That's it! Spring and Summer are the perfect time for knitting socks. If you're looking for a class, look for a toe up sock class that will be on the schedule ASAP.
In shop news, there's so much I'm liable to forget it all! I'm thrilled that Filati magazine is now available and has arrived with many of the Lana Grossa yarns that are used. The summer yarns are beautiful! Sasha is using Cashsilk Metallic to make a gorgeous summer cardigan.
Happy New Year!
January has flown right by and it's SUPER BALL SALE time again. As I do every year, I have waivered on whether or not to have our annual sale. Since I'm a sucker for tradition, I can't bear not having it all so I'm going to change it a little bit this year. Rather than doing 20% off most of the store, I'm going to have 25% off many yarns and a sale on some accessories! I hope you'll find something to get on your hook or needles!
I hope the sale will help make room for the summer yarns that will be on the shelves at the end of February. I'm so excited that
