July 15, 2023

Good morning lovely knitters!  Guess what?  Some of you already know, but winter begins today!  HAHAHAHAHA!  I know you guys love this proclamation.  :)  Yup, precisely at 2pm, winter begins!  So, as you're getting back from vacation, and thinking "I need a vacation to recover from vacation", and the more thunderstorms are rolling in, maybe its time to think about a NEW project!  And if you are really on the ball - a holiday gift to get on the needles!

To that end, we refreshed our Big Fat Stratus listing this week, as it is an all time favorite among knitters and crocheters and the muggles who are lucky enough to get handmade gifts!  You can find the knit kits here - 

And the crochet kits here - 

We also have a little bit of fun!  My daughter (who you usually know as our lovely pattern model) has taken over the social media (make sure you follow us on Instagram and Facebook) and is also making some gorgeous jewelry that is available in store and to introduce it, we're having a little giveaway!  If you purchase anything before midnight today (July 15, 2023) you'll be entered to win this Good Intentions necklace! 

This cute one is filled with Amethyst, Lavender and Moss and a little scroll with a nice intention for life balance.  Isn't that great?  We could ALL use a little more of that!  And if you don't win, you can pop in and purchase one (or email me if you aren't local - her etsy shop isn't filled up with ALL of the goodies yet).

I'll also have the free book alarm set today - so pop in and see if you get lucky!

We still have kits for Incomplete (though the sample color is almost sold out - there's only enough for the smallest sizes left), but hurry before they are gone!

I've also been doing some dye/cleaning.  Which means there are a few skeins of our older bases that I found kicking around!  I dyed them up to throw onto the weird stuff shelf - in some NEW colors that will be featured soon!  So, if you have pined for River or Papyrus, come check out the weird stuff shelf!

I hope to see you all today!
