Phew! Usually I’m sitting down to write this after a morning of dyeing, but alas, the holidays are upon us, and it was time to scrub up the house for visitors. Sigh…if only cleaning were evenly remotely as fun as knitting. But here we are, finally, with another packed week in review!
Monday – from 12 clockwise, a “wren-o-vated” skirt, Petrouchka socks in Wildfoote, shawl in…? Alicat handspun, hat in reclaimed cashmere…due for its debut soon, Lucky Cowl, Hitofude in Antilles Pagoda, a freshly Cast-on Underground Magic in Birch Pagoda, all on a bed of a gorgeous crochet shawl in Goldenrod Pagoda.
Thursday (new phone….more colorful pic, eh??) – from 12 clockwise, sleeves of the fabulous orange sweater, Lucky Cowl, Hitofude in Midnight Thicket Pagoda, gosh I can’t remember what was getting cast-on on those dpn’s, but it looks great, Poncho in Sedona, newly CO Underground Magic in Gatsby Pagoda, a Combo/Funky Venetian Blind that got CO because I was cold, (blue center) Aryia sweater in Reclaimed Cashmere, all on a bed of a Hitofude in Antilles Pagoda.
FINISHED – get a load of this parade of finishers!
Karen finished a Venetian Blind. No idea what yarn, but she used almost 3 times what the pattern calls for to make it awesome!
Deedee finished off her delicious Lucky Cowl! See that smile….she’s wearing cashmere! ;) Wonderful job!
Wren also finished off her (first) Lucky Cowl….it was almost as if she dressed to finish and wear?! Doesn’t she look great?!
Don’t Blink Kits just became available! Don’t miss them….they are a great, easy, quick-to-knit gift!
There are still some Lucky Cowl Kits, but the numbers are starting to dwindle. I’m trying to make more for December, but I never know what happens to time in December, so no promises! Better scoop if you’ve been pondering! :)
Tonight (Sunday) is the last night to get the Underground Magic pattern for free. Download it now! Tomorrow it will be only $4, but why miss out on free?
BLACK FRIDAY/SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY FUN!
Yes, we will be closed on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. Enjoy your family and friends and Happy Thanksgiving!
On Friday and Saturday, we will be open regular hours (12-5), but have some little rewards to thank you for shopping small and local this holiday season!
Cider and cookies! Come have a snack, knit a row, take a breather from the houseful!
Delight your hands – get a free handmade lotion bar with purchase of a Lucky Cowl Kit. It gets dry this time of year, let’s keep our hands happy with cocoa butter and cashmere! (It’s also a great stocking stuffer if it isn’t up your alley.)
Free Books – I may have scored some really nice books. And it seems, I just may want to give you one of those when you spend $40 or more (one per person…while supplies last).
Get a jump on the gifting! – Buy a $50 or more giftcard and get a $5 reward (you can add it to the giftcard, or take a credit for yourself!) and get a free holiday card to tuck it inside.
CHARITY AUCTION -
Our charity auction went great last week! Thank you to everyone who bid and especially to Gail who won and already made her generous contribution to Doctor’s without Borders! We’re going to have another one….but it’s wet and needs buttons, so I think it will go up Tuesday. Stay tuned – I’ll edit this post to include a link once it is ready.
I got so befuddled with all the Underground Magic fun last week, I forgot to post a poll! Oooops! In our previous poll, the monogamous knitters stayed very, very quiet, with the large majority of you saying you had loads of stuff on the needles. Knitters after my own heart. ;)
I’m staying under here until the enemy of my people is gone (the vacuum is trying to not be hurt).
