Saturday, April 9, 2022

Good morning lovely knitters!  I hope you are all waking up to a fantastic day filled with colors and yarny goodness!  Even though it is spring, and the shop slows down a bit, there are still SO many awesome things going on that you don't want to miss!!  

The deadline to sign-up for SOS AND our Shawl Lovers Box for April is NOW - (actually 4/10, but we are pretty darn close now), so if you don't want to miss out on our next beautiful mystery project or shawl, make sure you sign-up TODAY!

This week, we received NEW Ella Rae Impressionist!  Gorgeous cotton/linen blend - perfect for your summery projects!

The other new yarn from Ella Rae this year is Watercolors - which is 100% mercerized cotton.  These two are GREAT!  Watercolors is perfect for that shiny, slick look that mercerized cotton gives you, and Impressionist is a slightly drapey, gorgeous matte finish.  You should see them in person!!  (Though, be forewarned, my brain keeps mixing the names up...both land me in a similar part of the museum and than I'm just befuddled, and say the wrong one about 50% of the time!  Haha!)

We also got the NEW colors of delightful and delicious Cumulus Dappled in!!

NEW Mad Balls in this week - and this batch is meant to mirror the batch that was the original Mad Ball Shawl!  So pretty, right?

LYS Day is coming up at the end of the month and though I'm still brainstorming other fun, I thought it might be a fun day to really get a bunch of blankets in for our charity blanket K+CAL for Boston Medical Center.  SO - if you bring in a finished blanket on 4/30 (LYS Day), I'm going to hand you a fresh, beautiful Knit Noro Blankets Book!!  

In MORE good news!  Our Flying Geese class is going great!  And since they want to extend, you have the chance to join again!  For now, it is going to be a "rolling entry" class and you can sign-up here.  If you couldn't make the earlier dates, you're in luck!!

And don't forget to grab your Watery Ripples kit while it is still our featured pattern!  

As with all of our featured monthly patterns, you'll get a bonus 25% off any pattern code in addition to the free code for the Watery Ripples when you get the kit here:
If you want to score this pattern alone for 25% off, you can use code APRILPOM and get it here:
And last, but not least (I told you there was a bunch), Moebius Cast-on class is tomorrow and there is ONE space left!  This won't be offered again until the fall, so don't miss it!
Ok - all the blahblahblah done!  I hope to see your happy yarn-lovin' faces soon!
