NEW is still arriving!
Do you believe it! 2 more new yarns found their way to the shop recently.
These are yarns with a sparkle - Sterling Silk and Silver has real silver in it!! I am not kidding - it really does! It is a very soft wool/silk blend in a fingering/sock weight. Use it to make a lovely shawl, scarf or even treat your toes to special luxury. More colours just arrived - rose/pink and mauve.
Fountain Hill Wrap knit by Ann
The other yarn is called Fountain Hill - not sure why - no fountains and no hills! but this yarn is a mohair blend with a bit a glitter. It is light weight and would make a very lovely shawl or scarf. Ann is a fast knitter and is letting us "borrow" her lovely wrap for awhile. Thanks so much! Be sure to come in and check it out before she decides she just has to wear it!
Cashmere Queen Fingerless (tweeting) gloves by Fay and Linda
Time to brag on behave of another one of our customers and also Linda. Fingerless gloves are extremely popular because they are a small project and a super opportunity to use a luxury yarn such as CashmereQueen. Thegreen gloves were knit by Fay and the brown pair knit by Linda. This yarn comes in 6 classic colours which with go with "everything"! Fay liked the yarn and pattern (Cabin Fever) so much that she is now knitting her third pair.
These gloves would make a great gift for anyone - especially your "texting" friends.
Here are a few excellent reasons to knit/crochet -
#1 - Christmas is less than 2 months away
#2 - Cool weather and knitting/crocheting go together
#3 - Passes the time in a useful and fun way
#4 - Helps relieve stress
#5 - Fun to do
#6 - Instant entertainment
#7 - No calories are involved
#8 - Just because you love to knit/crochet - the best reason of all!
I love to knit & have my dream job - owning a yarn shop & being around wonderful fibers all day. I have owned the shop for over 19 years & been part of the business for 15 years before that. I love sharing my knitting knowledge with my super customers & also teaching new knitters all about this creative "addiction" called knitting.
