Saturday, March 16, 2023

Good morning lovely knitters!  It is nice to have some springier weather, isn't it?  And we have some FUN spingier yarn for you too!

We got one of our NEW Noro yarns for spring this week - 

Gorgeous, tweedy Kompeito!  Thinking of a summer top?  This one would be perfect!

We also brought in lots of Duo this week (though a lot of it is gone, so don't wait too long)!

And released this gorgeous Zuo hat which uses Duo and Juniper Moon Farm Moonshine!

Make sure you are catching up on the the podcast - this coming week, we are doing a giveaway for a Lykke Needle Set!!!  All you have to do is answer a silly question to enter!

Next Saturday is the Knit-For-Food Knitathon!  This is such a fun even to do good on top of good on top of good!  Here are the ways you can participate - 

1 - Click the link above and donate to our team!  (easy peasy, if you don't have time for the others).  If you send us your receipt, we'll be happy to send you any our patterns of your choice for FREE!  

2 - Come in on Saturday and knit (or drop off) a baby sweater for the Beth Israel NICU!  We already happily give you 100 points in your stash cash as a thank you for the sweater, but on Saturday, there will be more prizes!

3 - Combine 1 and 2 - and post on your own social media!  You can pledge to knit a sweater and have your friends sponsor you to do it!  Make sure you leave the link above so that you are joining our team!

We'll be open extended hours from 11am to 7pm on Saturday so that there is lots of time for fun, knitting, good karma, prizes, and snacks!  If it nice out, we may even sit outside a bit - so bring a chair if the weather looks nice!

I hope to see you today!
