Saturday, October 16, 2021

Good morning to all of you lovely yarners!  I have SO much to tell you today - I hope my list is correct, so that I don't miss anything!

First!!  Our winners for Name that Yarn and our Grand Prize Basket for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl!  Rachael I - you won Name that Yarn!  And Michelle P - you won our prize basket!!  Congratulations to you both!!!  Thanks so much for visiting to all of you!!

AND, if you collected 7 -10 or more stamps on your passport, the drawing for the wallets o' giftcards will be on October 30!  So, you could still win our big, big prize!!

We released a NEW pattern and kit this week - for all the little birdies flying south (though not the ones that insist on flying into our chimney - no shawls for those naughty little birds).  

Livingston is a fun and unusual shawl and such a fun knit - and perfect for all those little birdies flying south!  Livingston is made with luscious Noro Akari as the main body, with stunning and silky Noro Silk Garden for the birdies and the kit includes one of each skein and a pattern download code.

We also received NEW Juniper Moon Farm BFL!  This gorgeous yarn is just the perfect thing for your fall sweater knits!!  Gorgeous palette and amazing stitch definition!

Along with the BFL came NEW colors of Herriot Fine, Moonshine, Kureyon and Silky Kid!  I haven't gotten to update all the listings yet, so you'll have to come in and get an eyeful!!

And now, I have to tell you something that on this 75 degree October day, you're not going to like or believe.  Ready?  Brace yourself. 


I know.  I KNOW!  Though it is impossible to believe, my calendar tells me that it is true and that means we're doing our weekly count down of quick gifts for you to churn through to keep all your loved ones warm and happy this coming season!  (Some will be new kits - some are refreshes of great kits from the past.)  So today - there are FOUR new colors of our popular Zen Hat Kit

The new Retro Kureyon colors are just so gorgeous that I couldn't resist!  This hat flies off the needles and makes for a snuggly gift for loads of your peeps!

Ok - I *think* maybe that's it?  Who knows - I'm pretty sure I missed something important, but that's how it is going to have to be!

Have a wonderful week, everyone!
