Where's Waldo?

I hadn't realized it had been so long since I'd posted. In my head I've created lots of posts this past few weeks in my head.

It's been a crazy couple of weeks with sending my oldest son off to the Air Force Academy, and my husband having surgery all in the same day. I want to thank everyone for the emotional support, the phone calls, the cards and all the text messages. Without you all this would have been much more difficult.

So much new yarn has come in. Last Thursday we had 500 lbs of yarn from just Classic Elite. We've checked it all in, priced it all and it's in a lovely display sure to be wrecked as you fall in love with this falls newest offerings. Later this week I'll post what's new and some of the beautiful books we have fallen in love with.

See you all on Friday night where we will be hosting our famous monthly event Knit and Nosh.

Kick off your Fall Knitting with a day of inspiration.

Booksigning & Trunk Show

We are so excited to announce that we will be hosting a Book Signing and Trunk Show with nationally known designer, Faina Goberstein. You've all seen one of her pieces in the shop, Two-way Beanie. She's also had her work published in Interweave Knits, Ravelry, Knitting in the Sun and is a designer for such well-known companies as Cascade, and Claudia Handpainted. Even more exciting is she's co-authored the book Casual, Elegant Knits. We don't have all the details worked out, since she has an event Saturday night, but we are hoping to have her teach a class earlier in the day on Saturday, September 12th.

One of the benefits of attending the event is you get to see the patterns, touch & see the garments that were created from the pattern as well as try on any garments you choose. We will have a limited amount of space for the event so drop us a line to let us know you are interested in attending. We will be sending out more details later this week on all the details of what Faina and Knitique will be offering.
