27 July 2012

Don't forget this is the last weekend to get great savings buying sale items. The Anniversary Sale ends Sunday July 29.

We just got in some great shawl pins. There are new styles for the shawl or stole that your knitting. These even work well on scarves and make great gifts!

New yarn has arrived for childrens' wear. This yarn is DK weight and will either stripe or make a stripe and fair isle like pattern across the knitted surface. There are great patterns for babies and toddlers.

Also,  we have the solution to the baby blanket problem.  How about one ball of yarn (892 yds!) for a blanket. This is a blend of mostly acrylic with a bit of wool. Machine washable and dryable and knits on a US 8.

There is a great new pattern for a knitted slipper. You'd never guess, when knitted, that it is a slipper. Stop by and take a look. These will make great simple-to-knit gifts. This makes a great vacation project. One ball of yarn for all but the biggest size.

12 July 2012

Just a note that folks seemed to have had a great time at the sit and knit. It was waaaaay too hot outside so we filled the chairs in the shop with knitters. There were plenty of good things to eat and ice tea to help keep cool.

Thank you to all who came. I had a great time talking with you and seeing your projects.

Don't forget that my anniversary sale will go through the end of the month. Each week the sale items change so your next visit might yield a treasure in savings.

4 July 2012

DON'T FORGET! This Saturday and Sunday are Sit and Knit days at the shop.  I will have plenty of iced tea and cookies for munching. There will  be fans on the  porch so unless it is blisteringly hot, the porch will be nice.

Today is the start of my Anniversary Sale. Each week there are several items marked down. And, each week these items change. Stop by and see what will tempt you.

I can say that Friday's storm was an interesting experience. The shop lost power for two days and I still have no power at home as of this morning. We suffered no damage at the house or at the shop. In fact the storm didn't seem to be that bad at the house. The phone/data lines at the house have been down since Friday too, but this morning on the way to the shop there were several crews trying to remove the 24" diameter tree that took down the phone line.

A generator at home keeps  the vital systems going except for AC. It hasn't been that bad. The house has only gotten up to 85 degrees. Survivable with fans and lots of cool things to drink with plenty of ice.

See you this weekend!
