18 July 2013

New baby yarn arrived today. It's called Pinwheel. This is an acrylic yarn that has a long color change and is marled at the same time. Just great for that shower gift sweater or blanket.

If you don't have a blanket pattern, Cascade Yarns just published a new 60 Quick Baby Blankets book that has some great ideas.

It's nice and cool in the shop and we're hoping for cooler (well, less hot) weather this weekend. It's just a great time to sit inside sipping your favorite cool drink and knit.

See ya' soon.

18 July 2013

More new yarns will be arriving soon. I've been picking out the best of the best.

A new yarn to arrive this week is Lang Mille Color. This is a fingering weight that will be great for lace or socks. Here is a link to Lang's page with the colors available.

It is hard to see in the pictures but there is a fine metallic thread that runs with the yarn and gives it that extra special touch. Not too much, just enough.

Don't forget! My Anniversary Sale continues through the month of July. So stop by and get some great deals in yarn.

And, if you're having a bad hair day, just remember, it could always be worse!

Sit and Knit

5 July 2013

Here's hoping you all had a great 4th of July.

Don't forget, Saturday and Sunday will be a Sit and Knit at the shop. It's too hot for a Porch Party. This will be just sitting in the shop and knitting with friends, sharing pattern ideas and knitting stories.

Sit and Knit helps with decompressing from the holiday and prepares you for the upcoming week. Just a pleasant calm day at the shop.

Hunt Country Yarns Anniversary Sale is now in session and will continue throughout the month. Each week there will be new items on sale. It changes from week to week so to get the best deals visit often.

One good bit of news is that Hunt Country Yarns is in Fauquier County and did not have a sales tax increase to 6%. The sales tax here is only 5.3%. Shopping here you can save on your sales tax if you live in Loudoun, Fairfax or Prince William Counties. Every little bit helps.
