Lou Lou

We are raffling off Autographed books as well as other knitting necessities in September; all you have to do is bring in old fashioned yarn balls in shades of pink and lime green. If you are not sure of color come in to get approval of the yarn beforehand. We would love to help you if you have any questions. So pull out your odds and ...ends and start winding ladies and gentlemen. A good way to get a bigger ball without using a ton of yarn is to use a Styrofoam ball as the center and wind the yarn around.

For every yarn ball wound and turned in you will get a raffle ticket to be entered into our drawing. We are limiting the amount of yarn balls to three a person, but they need to be three different colors in order to get three tickets. So if you have two of the same color pink and a lime green you only get two tickets, the pink ones count as one.

This fun event is not limited to local Knitique Addicts but Knitique Addicts around the world. All you have to do is take a picture of your yarn balls and send them to our email address to get approval and then send the balls through snail mail. We will be accepting Yarn balls through till August 31, 2011.

We are going to use these yarn balls to dress up our new sheep, Lou Lou. We can’t wait to show her off to everyone once we get her all dressed up. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at the Hippest Yarn Boutique at 916.714.7719

If you are interested in signing up for this sweater space is limited and filling up fast. This is a great sweater for any level knitter and will build upon any skills you may already have.

The construction is also great for a newbie, there are no seams which means no sewing!

Let Freedom Ring

In honor of the men and women who are stationed all around the world. We thank you for keeping our country safe, for keeping other countries safe, and for allowing us to enjoy the freedoms that the United States affords us. Special thanks go out to the families of the service men and women. I truly appreciate your sacrifice.

America the Red, White and Blue

I didn't know what I was doing, but I listened to my heart
I wanted to do my part

I've read in the history books about the brave men who fought

The women who suffered and the children who lost
Of those who gave all they had, and then a little more
With courage in their eyes, and hope in their hearts
They wanted to do their parts

I want to be a part of the red, white, and blue

The part that stands for freedom for me and for you
With courage in my eyes, and love in my heart
I want to be a part.

by Elizabeth V. Miller

We will be closed on July 4th. We will be open regular hours Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday.
