The News You’ve All Been Waiting For–plus a fabulous trunk show, the new class schedule, and holiday hours

Yes, it is that time again–time for our annual The More You Spend, the More You Save SALE! Here’s the scoop:

The sale is on yarn, kits, books, buttons and patterns. Needles and notions not included. Savings percentage determined by pre-tax merchandise subtotal. Holds and special orders excluded. Save your receipts, because the sale runs through 22 December, and you can accumulate purchases to qualify for a higher discount. The higher discount will not be applied retroactively, however.

The new class schedule is ready! Check it out–all your regular classes are back, and we have some super specialty classes to offer. The ever-popular Sock Class is back with a couple new options to try, the Oops! class will help you remedy the more common mistakes we all make with less grief, and Around the Block lets you fearlessly tackle a small spiral-knit afghan, with refinements that make the back as pretty as the front. Kauni yarn (which Anne used for hers), with the slow color changes it features, is particularly well-suited to this project (though by no means the only way to go), which brings us to our next topic.

A Kauni trunk show! We just received a 10-garment trunk show of items made from Kauni yarn which is truly stunning. The garments range from scarves and shawls to a toddler sweater, an adult swing sweater, a dramatic long vest, and a spectacular blanket. Techniques used are generally simple, as the color-changes in the yarn are so dramatic they do all the visual work for you. The trunk show will be here through 12/22, and really is a must-see. We’ll be taking special orders for the yarn throughout the show as well as afterward. If you might be considering taking the Around the Block class or knitting a similar item on your own, this is a great opportunity to see what various colors of this yarn look like knitted up, and a perfect time to order it so that it is here in time for the class.

HOLIDAY HOURS: Through 12/22 we’ll be open our regular hours (Mon 12-8, Tues & Wed. 10-6:30, Thurs and Fri 10-5:30, and Sat 10-4). We will be CLOSED 12/23 through 12/25. We’ll open with limited hours for 12/26 through 12/29: 12/26 noon till 4 pm, 12/27 noon till 8:30, 12/28 & 29 noon till 4 pm. We’ll be closed 12/30 through 1/1/13, and then it will be back to regular hours beginning 1/2/13.

A couple of social knitting and crocheting notes: Knit, Nibble and Sip for December will take place 12/22, and we’ll make this a late-night one for anyone who wants to stay till 10 pm and finish up some last-minute projects, or just take a breather from the holiday rush. Please join us! Also, to lessen the sting of the abbreviated hours we’ll have UFO night on 12/27–bring out those UnFinished Objects!

I’ve been very long-winded and packed a lot of info into one communication, so if you have any questions by all means call us for clarification at 734 451-0580.
