Good morning lovely knitters!  It looks like the hurricane is missing us here so far.  I hope it is missing all of you too!  We've got a LOT of upcoming events this week now that yarny season is here!  Some are super time sensitive - so check them out!

First - our always fun and popular 10 Rows/100 days challenge is starting TODAY!  This is such a fun event and super helpful for those of you who bless your families and friends with amazing hand-made gifts at the holidays!  Check it out!  You don't have to do anything to enter, but say you're in and grab a entry sheet!  Might as well try, right?  You can actually sign up until Wednesday, 9/20, but you'll start behind a few days if you wait, so do it today!

We had a GORGEOUS new batch of Autumn leaves Mad Balls come into the shop!  This one is going fast (I think you are all as desperate for fall as I am!) so make sure you nab the one you want before it is gone!

Also, just another reminder that the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl is September 28 - October 1st!  We're going to have so many fun treats and giveaways!  Make sure you pop over that weekend!  If you don't want to miss out on fun stuff like this, make sure you follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram.

Our fourth podcast is coming up on Monday!  This time we're talking about cast-ons and bind offs and showing off a BRAND NEW yarn - which will go live right when the podcast airs!

Last week, I spent a day reorganizing our Island Yarn wall and it is SO pretty!  Come and see all of our hand-dyed, Mad Balls, Reclaimed Cashmere and Duo!  New colors are restock of some of the favorites, so pop in and give it a feel - you won't be sorry!  In the restock - I also dyed a bunch more Blood Orange which is perfect for all those cute little pumpkin themed projects that you are flirting with!  And more Magenta because it keeps disappearing in your yarn filled bags!

Classes are coming on fast and furious!  Time is ticking on Sweater Club and our Learn to Knit class, so make sure you sign up now!
