It's that time of year again!
Football is going out with a bang and it's time to clean out some winter inventory. For those of you who haven't started a post-holiday project for yourself, now is the time. This Saturday and Sunday only, February 1st and 2nd, all yarn and accessories will be 20% off. As usual, the sale applies to items in stock only, no special orders.

Yarn of the Month!

Blue Heron Rayon Chenille has the fabulous Blue Heron colors and super yardage in a delicious texture. One skein makes a super luxurious scarf or infinity cowl. Stop by and see them. They will be 15% off this month.
Happy new year!
With the holidays behind me, it feels like it's time to work on something for me. I was so inspired this fall that I made serious headway on three sweaters for myself that were abandoned when it became do or die time for gift knitting. Since the new year began I have focused and nearly finished two of them. I can't wait to get them on!
Today I should finish the first, which is a kind of funky but, hopefully, flattering pull over by Stephen West. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/swingback/people I've made mine using Malabrigo Rios as the base and Dyelot Yarns Stimulus Package for the contract colors. The colors are all shades of red and I've got perfect outfit planned (jeans and boots, surprise surprise). I'm determined to wear it tomorrow.
Like me, most of you are probably thinking about if not well into your holiday knitting. For the most part I knit for the shop (shop = me) but I look forward to this time of year when I can think about the people I love and bestow my beloved craft on them. With each stitch I imagine them wearing the object or opening the package. I hope they will love the colors I've chosen and that they will love knowing that they've been the focus of many hours of my attention. I hope they will know how special they are to me when they receive what I believe to be something much more special than a gift I would purchase. Just like a purchased gift, though, there is much reward in the giving because you give the gift of your heart, your time, and your thoughts. Since my gift receivers may be reading this I will keep my project plans secret but stop by if you need some ideas.
Yarn of the Month!
15 % off Cascade 220 Wool
I'm sitting here with the door open enjoying that fall breeze that is so refreshing after the summer's humidity. I've been trying to get my hands on all that new yarn I talked about in my last note and get some fun classes together to get everyone excited about picking up their hooks and needles again.
I've made booties out of the Plymouth Merino Select. The beautiful twist shows off my stitches so nicely and I'm sure mama will love that it's such a soft superwash. I've started a hat out of the luxurious Highland Duo, which is the solid color version of the Eco Duo which many of you made Sasha's Shawl out of.
The 50/50 alpaca/merino blend is so soft and the solid colors are subtly beautiful. As I have wound it several times, I have coveted the Marisol Ushya. It's soft and lofty, super bulky but lightweight. I have in mind a quickly project, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/greyfriars-oversized-pullover, to satisfy my craving for this yarn and fall-like cables. Where else can you find instant gratification and cables too?
So, the Blue Heron man was back. Oh my, I just had to get more of his delicious Rayon Metallic in some deep, rich colors for fall. He had something new for me this time that I could not resist, a hand dyed rayon chenille. It feels silky and warm and its sheen shows off the colors so glamorously. He provided a free pattern for a one skein, felted scarf or cowl done in an easy but fun stitch. Come and touch it!
Celeste is making Simply, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/simply, out of the Yarn of the Month, Noro Cyochin. This is another quick project perfect for fall and super flattering over a tee shirt and jeans. I'll be sure to 'borrow' it for a bit after she cast's off.
As always, the 30% off wall has some new additions. I need the space to make room for new things so this win/win wall works for everyone!
With the exception of an inch of baby blanket yet to finish, I sent off all the baby items. Everything came out so nice and I'm excited to have a beautiful girl, Keira, to keep knitting/crocheting for. I can't wait to meet her!
Sharon and I came up with a few new classes so check out the list and let me know what works for you. There is still room in some of the classes starting this weekend so give me a call if you can join.
See you soon!
