This Weekend at
The Knitter's Edge
As we come to the end of summer, we say good bye to the warm sunny days, while we look forward to the crisp cool air of Autumn. 
The new fall yarns are on the shelf and look extremely inviting.  Stop by soon to see all that is new- new yarns, new designs, new bags, and best of all... new toys.  Add to that all of the new classes and you have a recipe for a great time.
 So what's on sale this weekend???
 SOCOS- 33% off!
Socos hank
Socos has been added to the line of sale yarns that are spread out on the center floor of the Knitters Edge. 
 Socos hat
This bulky weight wool makes a wonderful hat (free pattern available) and warm squooshy gloves.  Amanda knitted herself a pair last winter and pretty much wore them out.  Colors galore- stop by and add just one skein to your stash for a hat or mitts.  Sale priced at 33% off!  It won't last long.
Multiplicity is on sale now at 33% off!
 Multiplicity Scarf


Multiplicity is a very interesting yarn which changes thickness as well as color at intervals.  This allowed us to make this  undulating scarf in 2 sizes-  one and two ball versions.  Get the pattern free at the shop with the purchase of either one ball or two of Multiplicity.  Yarn is on sale this week for 1/3 off!

Encore Boucle (in select colors only)Encore Boucle is also on sale this week- filling the pool to overflowing!  This long time staple makes the most wonderfully soft prayer shawls.  Baby Blankets also knit up quickly with 2 balls or more.  Use the Baby Rimini corner to corner pattern on a size 13 needle.  Get the pattern free at the shop.

Since we still need to make room for new yarns, we have moved several closeouts to buckets- center store floor.  Very special low prices are available on these yarns, such as:
Jelli BeenzJelli Beenz: at $3.00 each.  With 1-2 balls of this kid friendly yarn you can knit a pair of socks, 2 balls makes a hat.  The yarn, which is a member of the Encore Family of fine yarns is worsted weight and works up with any Encore pattern (of which there are many). 
So come in and pick up a few balls of Jelli Beenz and get some free patterns for some kids' projects.
And remember- if your are a regular class member- you get
an additional 10% off of everything.
As always- all sales on closeouts are final.
