23 May 2013

This weekend is Memorial Day weekend and the weather is suppose to be balmy (about 70 degrees). Whoohoo! Just the right temperature to make the porch a wonderful place to sit and knit.

Why don't you avoid traffic and come to the shop for a wonderful day on the porch.

I still have Prism and Mountain Colors yarns that I had at Maryland Sheep and Wool. If you didn't get a chance to see the yarns there, stop by the shop and take a look.

Hope to see you on Saturday or Sunday.

Don't forget, I will be closed on Monday.

More new yarns have arrived!

I've been waiting for these yarns for almost three months.

The first is from Manos.  Alegria is a hand-dyed vari-colored yarn in the tradition of Manos. This is a superwash merino and polyamid (read nylon) fingering (sock) weight yarn. They have some wild colors that are just right for a summer project. One skein does a pair of socks (445 yds).

The second is Zen Yarn Garden. This is what some of you have been asking for.  Serenity 20 is a superwash merino, cashmere and nylon blend fingering weight yarn. These hand-dyed colors are really rich. I have been told (by Lyn) that this yarn would be great for the Color Affection Shawl on Ravelry. I think it would be great for the Rockefeller Shawl. Opinions, you know what they are worth......

Just ask and we'll show you where they are.

Don't forget that we still have Prism in as a trunk show for a little bit longer.

See you soon.

8 May 2013

It's "Sit and Knit" this coming Saturday! Rain or shine the porch will be ready. Remember, it can be raining (it's suppose to be 76) and we can still sit on the porch. No motorcycles if it is raining! Ah, the soft sound of rain.

There will be goodies, as always. Because it is suppose to be warm, we'll have iced tea available.

If you missed Maryland Sheep and Wool, I will still have my consignments here so no need to panic that you've missed something.

So come on down and have a great time with fellow knitters and crocheters.

See you Saturday May 11.
