June 1, 2024

Good morning lovely knitters!  What a beautiful day!  It seems like a perfect day to come see some colors and fondle some yarn!

I'm sorry that I'm a little late sending this today.  Gladys was supposed to help out. but she's been partying since Thursday afternoon and was no help at all!

Since it is June, we have a NEW featured pattern!  We just updated our original Dragon Scales Shawl kit with SEVEN new colorsets of Louisa Harding Amitola!  This shawl is such a fun and gorgeous knit and the finer weight of Amitola makes it perfect for this time of year!  During the month of June, you'll get 200 bonus stash cash points when you order our Dragon Scales Shawl Kit!!

We also had NEW Mad Balls this week!  Such a pretty batch - the Mad Chicken is definitely going to have to happen this week!

Speaking of chickens, this is your last chance to join our Emotional Support Chicken KAL!  It is a pretty quick project, so if you hesitated, don't worry - just pop in today to grab your yarn!  We are going to have a little fun knitting in public next Saturday, June 8th (World Wide Knit in Public Day) from 4-6 outside the shop.  BYOC and BYOC (Chicken and Chair)!  Many people walk by the shop, that this will be super fun way to knit in public and show off the adorable insanity of Emotional Support Chickens!  (Light rain or shine - if there's a big rain storm, we'll have to cancel, so keep your fingers crossed!)

And don't forget to check out recent podcast!  There's a chance to win a handmade, one-of-a-kind woven scarf, but make sure you leave your comment before June 5!

I think that's it for today!  I've got some REALLY exciting NEW patterns/kits and tutorials in the works, so stay tuned for more!  

I hope to see you on this beautiful day!
