Our holiday social, new yarns and fashions!

Keely and Jeannie are back from Dallas and have tons of great products to share today. Let’s dive right in!

Today we got in new yarn from Baah La Jolla – the November colorway of the month. It’s gorgeous and it goes quite well with the September and October colorways. Purchase all three and you’ll have a beautiful project!

Also new this week, we have Cabello from OnLine. This bulky weight wool/alpaca blend has a gorgeous black halo, adding depth to every color. We think this one would be great for hats and cozy scarves and cowls.

This week we got in a new sample! Berroco sent us the Marit Shawl by Amy Christoffers knit in Berroco Topaz. This pattern is available, along with several others, in a beautiful pattern book!

Even though we just got back from the Dallas show, we’ve already got new stock in. BeStage shipped their tops super quickly. Most of these are geared towards spring, but given our variable weather, we think they’d make nice layering pieces even now!

Now that Halloween is over, we’re starting to turn our attention to the holidays. We’re planning our annual Holiday Social for November 26. Join us for festive beverages (high tea or hot chocolate), delectable treats, and lots of fun. Included in your ticket price are materials to make a Victorian themed ornament. We’ve got either knit or crochet patterns available. You can RSVP now to reserve your spot in person or virtually – we will sell out though so don’t wait too long!

Speaking of Halloween, thank you to all of you who helped us make our hat campaign a huge success! We were assisted in giving out the hats by Brandy Parks of Sooner Success, and Our Diamond Miss Pageant Queens Avery Wooden and Sophie Evans. And of course you’ll want to know who knit the most hats right? Our top hat makers were:

#1      Sheila VanBuren

#2      Carrie Yohey & Jeanie Athey

#3      Guthrie Public Library hat loom group

Finally, don’t miss our fabulous classes! This week we have:

  • Discover the multiple variations of Double Decreases and how to choose the right one for any make this Thursday, November 4.
  • Learn how to add shape and movement to your knitted pieces with our class on Short Rows on this coming Saturday, November 6.
