“So comfy….I could just fall a……slee…..zzzzzzzzz”
Available July 1st to July 31st as the Island Yarn’s Pattern of the month. This great hat and wrist warmer set is fun to knit and features a quick, easy technique that gives you two textures with all ribbing! The pattern is sized for one-size (adult) and is very stretchy. My girl is modeling it, but its a bit big on her, so I’m guessing it’s about a 12 year+ pattern. The set is made from the heavenly Sublime Cashmerino Silk, which is a luxurious blend of merino, cashmere, and silk and is available in many, many colors (too many to count this time). The pattern is free through the month of June when you purchase the suggested yarn, which is 4 balls Sublime Cashmerino Silk.
Though we’re glad to have our regular model back in the knitting, she seems to have something up her sleeve….
“Oh no! Mom caught me trying to swipe the Pattern of the Month! Run away!”
We’ll be open, regular hours this weekend, July 4th and 5th.
Christmas in July starts on Saturday, July 5h and runs through Saturday, July 12th. Time to gear up and wrap our heads around Christmas knitting. Here are all the details:
*Our Charity auction for Doctors without Borders and Kiva begins next week….check the website. I’m still a little unsure of what day it will be all set, but it will be next week. If you’re a blogger, I’d really appreciate any mention you can give the auction. I’m hoping that this will be such a success that it will be a “First Annual”. So please, bid from the heart for these amazing organizations.
*40% off all Berroco, Reynolds, Plassard, Mondial, and Farmhouse Yarns
*15% off when you buy 8+ balls of any yarn (of that yarn…excludes those mentioned above that are at 40% off). With everyone thinking about the ghastly cost of gas, many people have come in wanting to make throws and sweaters in hopes of keeping their thermostats lower and saving a little money this winter. If you’ve got this idea too….this is the perfect discount for you!
*Free classes on Monday (5-6pm) and Thursday (12-1pm). Monday’s class, with Karen, will be a super cute mini-raglan sweater…great for a Christmas ornament. We will provide the yarn and pattern, just bring Size 2 needles. Thursday’s class will be a drop-in class with our teacher Lisa prepared to help you with any knitting woes or questions.
*Join SCARF SURGE! before July 12th and save $10. See below to find out all about SCARF SURGE!
*The first 20 customers who spend $40 will receive a free Eurobag as a gift. Always looking for ways to subvert the plastic bag!
*With every ball of yarn you buy, you get a ticket for a Knitbag raffle. These are new, summery knitting bags in the store, complete with a coin purse full of knitting goodies (Stitch markers, needle toppers, darning needles, row counter, scissors, tape measure, and a yarn sleeve)
