Flounce BoaFlounce just came in and is back filling the shelves.  But... I suggest you come in soon for the best selection. Remember- just ask and we will teach you how to work with this fun yarn.  Only takes a couple of minutes.  Bring size 7, 8 or 9 needles.
 Who's that cutie?
Kylie & HatThis adorable little lady's name is Kylie and she is sporting her new hat knit by Grammie Eileen. 
Eileen used some of the new fall colors of Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK.  The new booklet containing this pattern has several others very, very nice designs for toddlers. 
 So what's on sale this weekend???
The pool is filled with Encore Boucle- great for prayer shawls and baby blankets.  We are adding Baby Rimini to the pool as well this weekend- bargain priced at just $2.00 a ball.  So 2 of the Encore Boucle at $4.00 each or 4 of the Baby Rimini at $2.00 each will make a baby blanket.  Great price!

New Project Idea!

Silky Wool ShawlWe have a new shawl knit for this great yarn- uses only 3 hanks.  Get the pattern free with the purchase of the yarn for this lovely triangular shawl.

Countdown to Christmas
Stop in to see our Advent style calendar for our countdown. Each week a new pattern will be presented free for a new gift idea.
Countdown to Christmas! 
BookmarksThis week's project is  for Crocheters as well as Knitters.  A lacey  bookmark is a great gift for anyone who reads.  These bookmarks are small and work up fast.  The knitted version is written for Algarve- a beautiful mercerized Egyptian cotton.  The Crochet version, written by one of our customers: Marie Miller; is worked up in #10 crochet cotton.   A heavier yarn will make it larger.  Either could be done in sock yarn as well.
Stop by the shop to get your free pattern containing both designs.  
Algarve is an absolutely beautiful cotton yarn by Austermann.  One ball will make up enough bookmarks for the entire family.  It is also a great choice for soap socks.
Highlights of upcoming classes and projects

Fancy Fish with JoAnne
 fancy Fish
This foot long fish is knit in many colors of Encore.  So to make a fun class out of this: I will fill the table with partial balls of Encore and hand each student a bag to fill with enough colors to make the fish.  8 colors are used.  You can bring some odd balls if you have them to throw into the pot.  It will be appreciated.  Cost of this class will be $10.00 and will include the pattern and Encore to knit this guy up.  I will even include the eyes if I can get them.  Just add needles & stuffing.  He is a fast & easy knit so anyone can do this one.
