Good sleepy, rainy, morning lovely knitters!  I know you may be slow to get going this morning, but at least so far, the rain doesn't seem as torrential as promised, so it might be time to wake up for all this awesome news!!  :)

First!!!  The prize winners for the GBYC BIG GRAND PRIZE were drawn and emailed this morning!  So many congratulations to Susan E who won the yarn wallet with a $40 giftcard to every shop on the crawl and Erika F who won the yarn wallet with a $15 giftcard to every shop of the crawl!  Wahooooo!  They are the most fun emails to send and I can't wait to see your happy faces when you pick up!  Thank you so much, again, to everyone who visited during the crawl!  You guys are just the BEST!!!

Next - with only 8 weeks until Christmas, we released the perfect quick gift kit for everyone who is worthy of a knitter gift (and quick enough that even a couple of the less knit-worthy)!  The Howl for Noro is cozy, colorful, super easy, and super useful. 

Every time I make a Howl, I have to make at least 2 because my girl jumps in a claims it right off the needles and she looks so darn gorgeous in them, I really can't argue much!  With 8 weeks to go - you can make loads of these - and we have a special intro offer going until 11/4 - save 20% when you buy 4 or more kits!!  (The discount is automatic - no code needed.)

We've also got the new yarns from last week online at last - check out super light and squishy soft Alpaca Moda!


And gorgeous, rich, heathered Silkhair Haze Melange!


AND I got a big box of Noro Haunui this week!  BUT, be forewarned - this is ALL I'm going to have for months - it is already backordered, so if you want to grab this lovely Romney wool blend - grab it QUICK!

This gorgeous sweater in the newest Noro Magazine is made with Haunui

It takes: MC: #3 Dark Brown: 3 (4, 4, 5, 5, 5) skeins
CC: #1 Light Beige: 1 skein

And I think that's it!  Happy Halloween everyone!!
