September N'ewes and Notes
This month we have welcomed some new yarns into the shop. Some are new to market which means that we are among the first shops to have them available. Included in this collection are King Cole Smarty, Drifter and Drifter for Baby. Don't let the word Baby fool you, this yarn can be used for any DK project.
Last newsletter I alluded to a new dyer that we are trying to get into the shop and unfortunately that is going to take a little longer than we anticipated as they are having difficulties with their mill so we are working with two other dyers to bring in their yarn. What this means is that we will continue to have new and exciting yarns coming in for you to play and create with. As well we will continue to carry the yarns you have come to know and love.
Starting Thursday, September 24th we are going to be having a Stephen West Knit-A-Long. For those who don't know, Stephen West is a very talented designer who creates some of the most interesting shawls available. His work is available for sale on Ravelry and the pattern that we have chosen to work on together is Exploration Station. This pattern requires four colours of fingering weight yarn. If you are interested in joining us for this group Knit-A-Long then come in and purchase your yarn and mark your calendar for four Thursday evenings from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. starting September 24th and concluding October 15th. Pattern can be purchased on Ravelry. If you do not have a Ravelry account (free to join) then come in and see me any Monday, Wednesday or Thursday and I will help you.
And for the crochet enthusiasts, we are looking for an equally interesting pattern for a Crochet-A-Long so watch your email inbox for updates on that event.
