Free Help session on Wednesday afternoons
Starting next week- Steph will lead a session from 4:00 - 6:00 to provide for free (yes free!) help with projects.  With as busy as we have been- some days we just don't have enough time to give each and every one of you enough time to fix those small problems.  We hope that this Wednesday afternoon session will help.

Some New Stuff!
 New Nuna colors
We have received several new colors in  Nuna by Mirasol.  This is a DK weight Merino Wool/Silk blend that has a beautiful sheen and lovely drape.  Many of our customers have used it very sucessfully for very pretty scarves and shawls- not to mention Odessa hats (with beads) and cowls!  (You can never forget the cowls).  The 5 new colors expand the palette in a lovely direction.
 Crofter Snuggly colors
The Knitter's Edge has also just received a brand new yarn that we are very excited about.  Snuggly DK baby yarn is now available in a new range of colorways called Crofter DK- just like the Crofter  self striping yarn that so many are using for the  EZ Surprise Baby Jacket.  Now you can have the Crofter striping look with Snuggly's softness.
