As most of you know the new movie has come out. I've heard lots of rave reviews about it. So we decided to have a girls night out and go out on the town. Our first movie was Sex and the City which was great but not altogether appropriate. As my son would say "Awkward". Anywho, we are going to the movies, this Saturday, July 26th after the shop closes. Most of the music is from Abba. Sharon W. loved it so much she rushed right out to buy the soundtrack.

So give us a call at Knitique 916.714.7719 and let us know if you'll be going us. We can't wait to see you there.

It is Hot, Hot, Hot!

We are in the middle of the summer and we probably have a good 6-8 weeks of nice warm weather. I got a sneak preview of the Fall Vogue and Fall Interweave Knits. I think once again they have done a fabulous job once again.

To me Fall is the time that I'm drooling over all the wools, new yarns and new patterns. I love that we get previews so I can start the process of picking out what's going to be next on my plate.

So make sure to click on the links and see what's next up to bat at your local Knitting Boutique, Knitique.

Friday Night on the Town

Hi everyone, since Jennings has closed we are still on the look out for a new Friday night meeting place. This month we thought we'd try Kintaro's which is an incredibly delicious Sushi restaurant that happens to be in the same shopping center as Jennings. One of my favorites and Reardon's is a roll called Zig Zag. I will be out of town, darn it, though looking at the incredible Pacific Ocean is almost worth missing a fun event, but I know plenty of girls are still planning to attend. Call the shop today and speak to Paula, 916 714 7719. We want to make sure to get a head count. Have a great time.

More delectable Dream in Color

Trip delivered a HUGE box of Dream in Color today. We've ordered almost 2 dozen colors all in sweater quantities. The purchasing was fast and furious but we've still got more left, and another order should be hear sometime next week, fingers crossed.

What's everybody making with it.... a September Knitalong I was almost done with it and realized I'd put the buttonholes on the wrong side and I'd forgotten to slip a stitch which bugged me. So out it came. Trish finished her's and I'll post a picture soon.

And the Rockets Red Glare

Can you believe that tomorrow is already July 4th? I think this year is just flying by. I've enjoyed the beautiful weather we've had this year. I was telling D that it seems like we are living in Southern California this year, we've had such mild weather. This Friday is Independence Day - it's also the first Friday of the month. We will be closed Friday so that we can all enjoy the picnics and fireworks and reopen at 10:30am on Saturday. Knit and Nosh is going to be postponed to the next Friday - July 11th. We have a treat for you! We will be having a Meet and Greet as well as a Trunk Show with Designer Terri Morris from Liann Originals. Terri will be here at Knitique for Knit and Nosh and will have examples of all her garments and projects as well as patterns to sell and will even autograph them. Be sure to check out her Sailing Adventures on her Blog.

Here's just one picture of her Gorgeous, incredibly Well Written Patterns.

So come join the fun, be sure to come early for a good seat, and if you'd like we'd love if you'd bring a little something, something to share. See you soon!
