24 November 2013

Here's wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving.

We will be open on Wednesday the 27, closed Thanksgiving day (no early open Black Friday here!) and open again during regular store hours Friday through Sunday.

Another beautiful yarn arrived on Friday (sorry I'm late with the news). Blue Ridge Yarns "Silk Shimmer Lace".

I'm slightly tongue-tied trying to  describe this yarn. The color ......, the feel ....... I really can't even begin to describe the yarn it is just ........ wonderful! The skein is 1000 yards, more than enough for a shawl of moderate size.

This colorway is called Persian Princess. Unfortunately, the picture doesn't do it any justice but it is the best that can be done. This truly is yarn that has to be seen and touched.

Don't forget the Sit and Knit the Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving!

More yarn has arrived!

Kid Silk Haze Eclipse with a shimmering metallic thread is on the shelves. This is a luscious and soft yarn that can be knit anywhere from 18 - 25 sts/inch.

Rowan has produced a Mini Collection to compliment the yarn with some elegant designs.

Fiesta BabyBoom fingering weight yarn is here in Spirit of the Southwest colors. These are just the incredible colors and just right for brightening up your winter blahs.
Keeping with fingering weight yarns, Blue Ridge Yarns Footlight is on the shelf. This is a local yarn and I think they really have fun with color. Here's a sample:

This colorway is called Apple Rose and the colors are even better in person.

Don't forget the Sit and Knit Thanksgiving Weekend. Come to the shop, sit, relax and let the tension disappear. Share stories and knitting while sampling Stacy Charles yarns.

Looking forward to seeing you.

4 November 2013

Halloween is behind us and Thanksgiving is just ahead. The weather is turning cold and now is the time to start knitting socks, scarves, cowls and hats. These are simple projects completed quickly and can be salted away for that special gift.

Starting on Saturday, November 30th we will be having a Stacy Charles yarn tasting. There will be yarns for you to sit and knit with - test if you wish. What a great way to try out a new fall yarn. We'll try to include a few surprise yarns

At the same time on November 30 and December 1, we will be having a sit and knit. Just what you will need - a calm environment to relax in and knit. Just what you need after a holiday.

Remember, you can always ask to test knit a yarn that we have in the shop. All you have to do is ask!

I hope to see you Thanksgiving weekend.
