This Week at
The Knitter's Edge

We want to sincerely thank all of you for making our Black Friday Sale so successful.  We hope everyone was satisfied with their purchases.


But it isn't over!  We have lots more great deals for you this holiday season.

The Mitten Tree is Up!


Mittens for this week:  Snowmen Mittens!  
Our tree is filling up- but far from full yet!  We need more Mittens!
We will be taking Mittens for the Kids- and for the contest up until December 18.  Thats when we will award prizes (and we got some good prizes this time).  After that we will continue to accept mittens for the kids through January.  There are over 400 students in this elementary school and we want to keep as many hands warm as we can.  I was told that the vast majority of the students are walkers so keeping these mittens are really needed.

See What's New!

There we were last Wednesday, just starting to relax, after getting the shop all ready for the big Friday sale when along comes the UPS man with boxes of new yarns!!  So we got them out and on the shelves ready for all of you to see.  All of these new yarns have one thing in common- SPEED!
Squiggle ballThis is a fun kid's yarn from those masters at Sirdar.  2 multi colored strands are twisted together to create an incredible display of color. 
Squiggle hat
2 balls and about 2 hours of knitting time makes a fast kids hat, such as is shown here.  We have a boy's version too! 
Stop by the shop to see it.

Riviera:   Riviera
A big, semi felted knitted tubular yarn. 
1 Ball makes a scarf, hat or Cowl.  Dare Cowl
We have a pattern for you for a one hank cowl- complete with 2 large buttons.  It took all of about 2 hours to knit- very fast and very sharp!




Dare:  Dare 
A big skein of one of the most interesting yarns I have ever seen.  Furry on one side, chainette on the other.  Knits up fast on very big needles.  You have to see this one for yourself.

WOW!  Look whats new in the Pool!



MegaLast year we featured Encore Mega for the many, many hats we all knit for the Homeless.  During that time, many knitters developed a love for this super quick to knit yarn.  It works up at 2 sts to the inch on size 15 needles- now that is fast!  We have several patterns available- including a few new ones.   Stop  by and pick up a few balls and a few patterns.  The pool is overflowing! 
mega Mitts
Another new pattern for Encore Mega will be available next week as the Countdown to Christmas feature pattern.  But while you wait- try the new pattern for these fingerless gloves.  They only take 1 ball of Encore Mega, and 2 really cool buttons.
