If you opened our Friday email, you'll know that we launched this year's clearance sale with an online "early entry" option on Sunday.
I always feel ruthless when I choose which yarns are on their way out--these are old friends, after all! But then I remember that we're just doing a bit of seasonal weeding, and pretty new things will pop up in their place very soon!
Meanwhile, grab some great deals! Yarns are marked from 25% - 75% off, and shopping early ensures your best selection!
We're offering two classes with Michele Bernstein, author of Brioche, Knit, Love. We recommend enrolling early--class space is limited, and you'll have a small amount of homework prior to each class.
Petite Brioche, 10:00a - 12:00p more details here. $40
Fixing Knitting Mistakes, 1:30 - 3:30 more details here. $40
No social stitching this Saturday, July 22nd.
8:00a - 8:00p We'll be open extended hours in conjunction with the Ellensburg Night Market. The Night Market takes place from 5:00p - 9:00p on Pine Street.
8:00a - 8:00p We'll be open extended hours in conjunction with Hoedown in the Downtown.
Terra is a beautiful new sock yarn from Symfonie Yarns, a project of KnitPro--who we know as Knitter's Pride in the US.
The KnitPro factory is located in Jaipur, India, and the company is a family-owned enterprise that employs more than 1700 workers. On the subject of adding hand-dyed yarns to the range of needles, hooks, and tools they produce, they noted:
Symfonie is the dreamchild of the lifelong knitters and crocheters on our team, who took it upon themselves to research the marketplace and learn about the many facets of hand-dyeing, then convinced the whole company to support their endeavor.
You'll find that the colors are incredibly rich and vibrant, and they were conceived with the intent of translating the visual inspiration of their Indian heritage--the flora, fauna, textiles, gems, and architecture. It is gorgeous, and the blend of 75% superwash Merino with 25% nylon makes it a great option for socks, shawls, sweaters, and more.
You mean you're going to do a deep dive on crafting project data, and then you're going to **crochet a bar graph to illustrate it**??
Anyway, the article is here--and I don't *think* it's behind a paywall...
What a chaotic week it was: a compromised credit card, a 13 hour day due to the Ellensburg Night Market, oral surgery for one member of the household, a 100 mile race for the other one, and setting up for the clearance sale did not all add up to much time for working on projects. I did work a bit on the Basic Beanie from Tin Can Knits (which was a good reminder that I need to get an order in for the yarn I'm using--especially now that I have more room to put it!).
