Sale and N"ewe" yarn

It is hard to believe that it is now 2013. 
As "ewe" look back over the past year
 I hope it was a good year for "ewe" and that your knitting/crocheting made the year even better!

Now is the time to think of all the fibre related "things" you accomplished in 2012 
and plan for 2013!
Here is a list of  "things" you may have done or hopefully plan to do in the future!!

Quasar is a 100% Peruvian wool by Berroco.
 It knits up in a self pattern design.
 Linda knit this attractive quick knit cowl using only one ball of Quasar
If you wanted your cowl to wrap - you would need only 2 balls. 
This is a free pattern on the Berroco website.

Don't forget about
 our Shadow Box KAL - another date ha s been added as the first one filled up very quickly
Now starting Tues. January 15 from 1 - 2:30

Keep warm as you play with your yarn!
