Saturday, November 18, 2023

Good morning lovely knitters!  It might not be the loveliest morning we've ever seen, but the holidays are coming in fast, so we've got a lot of fun stuff to talk about!  I'm desperately hoping that since Thanksgiving is so early that December will feel a little less frantic! 

Speaking of Thanksgiving - our hours for next week are - 

Wednesday - 12-4

Thursday - Closed

Friday - 12-5

Saturday 12 - 5

We're open today, regular hours 12-5, so if you think your next week is going to be hectic, make sure you drop in today to sooth your Thanksgiving stress!  We'll be having a bit of Black Friday/Small Business Saturday fun, but I'll tell you all that in Wednesday's email!

Here's your weekly Advent update!  There is one, single Rainbow Box left.  Jewel and Neutral are sold out.  There are still a handful of Christmas and Surprise Me boxes.  These would make GREAT gifts for a knitterly host of Thanksgiving, but clearly, you want to grab it now.  Friday 11/24 is the last day that we will be shipping these because we want you to get them in time for Advent fun! 

We had our one and only batch of Christmas Mad Balls come in this week!  If you want to have a Christmasy shawl or scarf this season, this is the perfect way!

In our podcast this week, we took a short break from color fun to talk about all the fun uses for those little Advent boxes once they are empty!  (We love to recycle afterall!)  Make sure you vote on the Shawl Showdown before Monday - this one is going to be a close one!

We got a restock of Making Tracks this week after a LONG wait!  Grab your Junction 14 set before we sell out again!

We added a crochet version to our featured pattern - the Howl for Noro!  Super quick and loved by all!  This month, when you buy 3 Howl for Noro kits, you get one FREE! (add all 4 to your cart, the fourth will discount automatically)

Don't forget to mark your calendar for our little yarny party on December 3rd!  We'd love to see you!  We have a few GREAT crafters for a mini-holiday market!  Pop over that day for a cookie nibble, a yarn fondle, some unique gift shopping and just silly fun!

Stocking kits are going fast and stockings are getting knit fast!  I love to see it!  Grab yours soon!

Phew - I think that might be it - this season is so full of yarny news, I'm never sure that I get it all!  I hope to see your lovely faces to cheer this dreary day!
