Ok - it is 4pm and dark. That is just not right. When you combine the dark grey clouds with the sun setting earlier, it makes for a very dreary day. Just the kind of day that makes you want to stay home with your favorite knitting project!
For those who have not yet signed up for our email newsletter... big news went out today...
On Saturday, November 26, 2005 from 10am to 4pm, all of our in stock Classic Elite yarns will be 10% off!! That includes:
• Miracle – a gorgeous 50% alpaca, 50% tencel blend.
• Bam Boo – this amazing yarn is 100% bamboo and is hypoallergenic and retains antibacterial properties from the plant. (It makes great dishcloths for holiday presents).
• Lush – you won’t believe how incredibly soft this 50% angora, 50% wool yarn is! People have been snatching it up to make scarves.
• Princess – one of Classic Elite’s new luxury yarns with merino wool, cashmere, and angora.
Becka and I are excited to announce that we are introducing a new yarn line from Friends’ Folly Farm in Monmouth Maine. They showed us their hand-dyed fibers this past Saturday and they were amazing! You would not believe the colors, but beyond that, the fiber itself – 50% mohair/ 50% wool (yes, they also spin the yarn) – is incredibly soft. We already have their hat and sock kits in the shop, as well as their patterns for top-down roll neck pullovers. The yarns should be arriving in another week.
That's all the news for now. I hear snow may be on the way so it is definitely time to knit.
