Good morning lovely knitters!  WAHOOOOOO!!!  It is time to throw those windows wide open and feel some amazingly FRESH air that hasn't been felt in WEEKS!  Isn't it glorious??!?  I almost had forgotten what it felt like to wake up feeling refreshed?!  So, I don't know if it is the same for you - but fresh cool air just makes me feel like doing a million different projects!  Good thing I've got some yarn in the shop to match these fun refreshed feelings!

We actually started to get NEW fall yarn this week - NEW Ella Rae Alpaca Mohair Degrade!  This yarn is so luscious and though you could totally use it on its own, I have several awesome plans to use it as a carry-a-long to create some amazing watercolory items!  

We've also start to put up our fall class listings (just started - the majority are still coming)!  But if you want to get a jump and check them out - here they are!

I've heard that a few of you are ALREADY done with your Grist Shawls for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl (9/29 - 10/2) and I can't wait to see them!  I told you - it is a QUICK knit for sure!

And you can get the crochet version here - 


And I've been having loads of fun putting together Starburst Kits - though it is a struggle to not cast on a new one every time that I put a pit together!  Get one now, while Starburst is our featured pattern!

Wednesday is the deadline for blankets for Boston Medical Center - if you have them ready or almost ready but haven't made it in yet, make a plan to come in today or Wednesday!!  You guys have really been AMAZING with this project!  I'll let you know that final number of blankets next weekend!

It is a perfect day for a trip to the shop, so I'll hope to see you!!
