Saturday, August 7, 2021

Good morning lovely knitters!  It never fails, August arrives and all of the sudden, there's loads of news!  I'm not even going to blather about the weather today because I'm afraid I'll forget something!

First!  Lots of new new yarn came in from Katia!  There's gorgeous and afforable Kaleido, perfect for friends that need easier care gifts - 

Big huge balls of Varanasi - which is great if you love Noro-ish knits but want a washable yarn to do them with - 

And my FAVORITE - Cotton Merino Tweed!!  Cotton Merino has been long a time favorite, and now there's a TWEED version - it is AMAZING!

And since we need to make some space for these and all of the other fall yarn that will start to fall like rain over August, there's even MORE in the Sale Bin and lots of deeper discounts AND if you buy 10 or more balls from the sale bin, another $10 will be taken off your total automatically!

There's also a gorgeous new drop ship kit for this super cool Origami Shawl!

As well as the arrival of the Fall issue of the Noro Magazine!!  (I didn't get a chance to get that online with everything else, so you'll just have to come see it!)

There are only a couple of days left to sign up for Save Our Sanity for August!  If you're starting to feel the hints of fall making you think about holiday gifts, this is perfect for you!  Our August kit is perfect even for beginners!  (I promised to do a fairly quick one for the many people who have told me that they are bit behind!)  Find out how much fun it is to get these mystery kits by signing up today!

And if you haven't grabbed a kit for Wayside Waves yet, be sure to do it soon!  When you finish it in time for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl (Sept 30- Oct 3), you can wear it and get awesome little prizes while you crawl just for looking fabulous in your new shawl!

Classes start up again in just 2 weeks, so if you haven't signed up yet, check your calendar now!

Yikes - so much stuff!  I really hope that I remembered it all, but who knows!  See you soon!  <3
