Dear City Knitting Friends,
Our book and sample sale continues through Saturday, October 17. We still have many great book titles and oodles of patterns and booklets as well as 10 samples eager for a new home.
Since some of you missed the e-mail news last week, we will continue with Colourscape as our Cast On Special this week. Colourscape is a beautiful striping chunky yarn great for many projects. We have several samples on display to get your creative juices flowing. Remember any Colourscape yarn and pattern bought this week is 10% off.
Its time to clear out our sale area! This week anything on the sale racks is 50% off. We have sock yarn, baby kid mohair, yak/bamboo blends, tweeds, linens and some really cool kits waiting to be picked up at great prices.
New yarn from Yarn Hollow is on the shelves. First we have Squish (4oz/434y, 61/2sts/inch, $20.00), a Merino superwash, bamboo and nylon blend in amazing multicolored hanks. You will want to add this one to your sock yarn stash.
Then there is Photograph (8oz/500y, 5sts/inch, $34.00). This yarn is 100% wool Blue Face Leicester and oh so soft. With all the beautiful colorways to choose from and the incredible yardage on each skein it will be easy to find a project for this yarn.
And finally, we have Buzzi (4oz/70y, 21/2/inch, $17.00) a chunky yarn with with lots of zip. A great choice for the Bette Hat, a free shop pattern.
Back on the bookshelves is the popular Natural Knits for Babies and Moms ($21.95).
For all of our friends in the Chicago area and those of you who may be in Chicago on Saturday, October 17 please come visit us at YarnCon from 10am-4pm. YarnCon at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse is a one day fiber event. We will be there with our Cuts of Lamb gear as well as patterns and books. As YarnCon’s website says, this is a place to promote, sell and celebrate yarny arts. If you’re in Chicago on the 17th, stop in and say hi. Just FYI, the shop will also be open as usual from 10-4 this day.
Thanks for all who made the LNYP last Friday so much fun. The yarn, the people, and the food were all great. And, no mystery plates were left behind, a first!
We are still awaiting news from Sara. She doesn’t know if its a boy or girl. We’ll let you know. -City Knitting207f
