Saturday, September 9, 2023

Good morning lovely knitters!  I sure am glad to see those temperatures dropping again.  How about you?  Now if we could just sweep some of this humidity out of here!  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 because you really only have a week to decide on this one - our always fun and popular 10 Rows/100 days challenge is starting NEXT Saturday!  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?

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!

And we just drew that winner for FREE PATTERN FRIDAY!  Deb N won a FREE Dragon Scales Sweater pattern!  Congratulations!  If you don't want to miss out on fun stuff like this, make sure you follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram.

And just to finish up the stuff where there are no pictures (don't be sad, pretty is coming), our third podcast is coming up on Monday!  This time we're talking about gauge and showing off a BRAND NEW gorgeous yarn that we are making at Island Yarn - which will go live right when the podcast airs!

We've got MORE NEW Kraken dried and overflowing!  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!

There are also only THREE colorsets left for our September Featured Pattern - A Few Stairs Short of Heaven.  They are awesome (not the losers - just the ones I managed to hoard a little more!) so grab one before they are gone!

Classes are coming on fast and furious!  Learn to Crochet is full for this session, but if you want to get your crochet on, check out our Granny Square or Amigurumi classes.  Sweater club is also coming soon - so make sure you sign up now!
