Mom and I leave next week for TNNA and then Bam!! we get back and the next Friday the MYC starts (June 5th – 14th. The bags are in so make sure you get one if you want your 20% off regular priced yarn. Our prize this year is 5 skeins of Duck Duck Wool DK Limited dyed in a colorway of your choice. Enter to win by getting your card stamped by 8 of the participating shops and leave you card with us.
Some of you may have heard that Casapinka, designer of the Loop shawl, is coming for the first weekend of the crawl. We met Casapinka at Rhinebeck last year wearing her Loop, and the obsession began. She is bringing some of her favorite shawls and garments for a mini trunk show as well as teaching a class. The class will be taught both Saturday and Sunday morning, so if one day doesn’t work for you, maybe the other will. She will be teaching both steeking and 2 color – color work. She will be here to assist with picking colors for any of your projects too. Details are here.
Mom and I just decided that we will be offering Melanie Berg’s Drachenfel pattern as a free pattern for those purchasing 3 skeins of fingering weight for the shawl. It has been such a hit, and damn if she isn’t starting another one! We will probably be offering another free pattern, we just haven’t decided on which one yet.
We are expecting a couple of shipments over the next couple of weeks too. Dragonfly Djini Sock should land today, then of course we will have more DDW 80/20, Northbound Knitting Fingering Merino, Sweet GA Cash Lux Fine, and of course plenty of Magpie Fibers. Oh and this year we can buy some things off the floor at TNNA, so we may have some other goodies too.
Oh, and I heard that while Mom and I are gone to Columbus, Dami is planning a yarn bombing party at the shop. Let us know if you are interested in helping. We will give you some yarn and loose directions. 🙂
