Happy Valentine's Day!  I know I'm a little early, but I didn't want you to miss our cool sale going on the week of Valentine's Day.  Check out our Current Promotions page for more information.

RUFFLE SCARF YARNS!!!  Yes, we have them!  We have more requests each day for "that ruffle scarf stuff" than for anything else in the shop.   The scarves are a hot fashion accessory, and we can't keep the yarn in stock.  The fact that they can easily be made in an evening, and you have a winning project for a gift, or the perfect addition to that outfit you want to wear tomorrow, makes them even more popular!  We have gotten shipments from two of our suppliers just this week, so we are well stocked at the moment.  Of course, being in Wildcat Country, the blue and white versions are some of the most popular, but we have dozens of color combinations ranging from bright and crazy to subtle and classy.  We can teach you to knit one in about 5 minutes -- so if you haven't tried it yet, come on in and see what all of the fuss is about!

Check out the classes still on the calendar from our fall/winter newsletter.  We have the cutest little knitting baby hat coming up on February 21 -- cables, bobbles and colorwork techniques will be taught.  It's another winning design from 60 Quick Baby Knits.  A two-color Brioche scarf is starting on February 19 -- this is a really interesting knitting technique that results in a great reversible scarf.  A lovely intarsia lace scarf from the great Noro Accessories book starts on March 14 -- knitted in Silk Garden, it's truly a beautiful scarf.  For crocheters, the Braque Granny Square Cardigan is a good choice -- the design is a classy adaptation by Berroco of the traditional granny square, and the class begins on March 13.  If you have taken one of the knitted afghan classes in the past, don't forget that we are now offering an afghan workshop class once a month to help you complete any blocks from any of the three afghans we taught -- the next two sessions are on February 18 and March 18.  Our new class schedule for spring/summer 2013 will be out toward the end of February. 

If you want to be among the first to know when the new newsletter is available, sign up on this site, on this very page, and we will send you an email when the new letter is posted on the site.  You can then print off your very own copy!  We know that change and transition is difficult, but we are hoping to shift at least a portion of our newsletter customers to the web site copy.  We are happy though to continue to mail out a paper copy to those of you who prefer to receive your newsletter in that format. 

Our Warm Up America! group has been working very hard in 2012 and their output numbers are really impressive!  Check out our Community page to see what they've been up to and to find out how you can help out if you are interested.
