Did you notice the beautiful summer weather yesterday? I actually got to spend the day on the beach knitting with a friend. My first such trip of this crazy season.
Luckily, even though the weather hasn't been what we would like, the knitting has kept us very busy this summer. If you've been by the shop recently or following the blog, you know that we've been getting many new yarns, patterns, and accessories. Now that fall is around the corner, even more fabulous fibers and books are arriving. We have exciting plans for it all, but first we could use your help.
With all the new yarns arriving, we need to make some room on the shelves. Of course, that means a sale! Announcing the Summer SALE this Saturday, August 1st. Both online and in the shop, select yarns will be up to 20% off. What might you find on sale? Here's a small sample of the yarns that will be 20% off on Saturday:
Plus a number of others that you will find scattered throughout the shop.
While you are planning your strategy for Saturday and what you might do with all that wonderful yarn, consider joining us for our next knit along. During August we will be hosting the Getting Ready for Fall KAL and knitting The Concetta Cardigan. This wonderful pattern was designed by a talented local artist - Elizabeth Smith of The Brown Stitch. The cardigan itself is a stylish piece that looks great on everyone. As a top down pattern, it is a quick and relatively easy knit - perfect for ensuring that the sweater will be done in time to complement your fall wardrobe. Visit the blog for details on joining us.
Another option for all that wonderful yarn? Crochet! Surely you have noticed all the great patterns appearing for crochet. Well, if you are like me - who can only do the very basics in crochet - you can only look wistfully at those new designs. Luckily we have an amazing new instructor who will be offering an Introduction to Crochet class on Wednesday August 19 at 6:30pm. Visit the Classes page of our website or call the shop, 207-319-7634, for details.
Today is supposed to be another beautiful sunny day. I hope you are able to enjoy it and that we will see you on Saturday!
