Sample Sale!

Get a jump on your holiday buying something that's already knit! We know it's fun to knit for loved ones around the holidays, but there are always those other people - teachers, hostesses, petsitters, yourself - who deserve a nice knitted gift, but you just don't have the time to knock one out for them.

Well, we have the answer! Look!

We've gone through our samples and pulled out dozens of scarves, hats, and sweaters (for babies, kids and adults) that we're selling. These are gorgeous samples, but we don't carry the yarn anymore or the pattern's out of print, so we can't display them anymore. Our loss is your gain!

There's something here for everyone - sparkly scarves, adorable baby sweaters, warm adult sweaters, dashing hats. Stop by the store and take a look at what's on sale. While supplies last!!

Block of the Month Madness!

Our first Block of the Month First Friday was a smashing success! We had over thirty intrepid knitters show up and start their afghans with the thrilling Block #1, the Popcorn Stitch! I meant to take a picture of everyone concentrating on their knitting, but I couldn't squeeze in upstairs. So I yelled up from downstairs that I was popping champagne, and suddenly there was a flock of knitters swarming about.

There was imbibing:

There was chatting:

There was chatting and choosing yarn for the next block:

And there was some serious shopping:

I swear to you that these folks all knit for a long time that night. But they embraced the break too!

So there you have it: knitting plus drinking plus chatting plus shopping = a great time.

You can start the Block of the Month Afghan at any time by stopping by the store and picking up your first block's yarn and pattern. Our next First Friday, the exciting Block #2, is November 6 from 5-8pm.
