The Weeks Are Flying By
Hi again, boy oh boy, these weeks are just flying by. May already, second week no less.
I am following up on some questions asked after last week’s newsletter. The Yarn hop is going to be on the 22nd and 23rd July. So, mark your calendars and save the date.
Free Pattern Offerings
Lots of yarn to choose from at Yarnitudes that would be great choices that would knit up beautifully.
I am so happy that so many of you wanted to make it for yourself, someone you love, and even said it would look good on me.
Yarn Tasting Anyone?
Now, what’s next? Well everyone had such a great time at the Cascade Yarn tasting earlier in the year, it was this year, wasn’t it? So we have decided to do it again with another supplier. This time Maxine will be here on Saturday 27th of May with samples from Trendsetter yarns.
We will do the same kind of thing, just a bit more organized. There will be tickets, $5 per person, which will be good towards a purchase that day. You will also be able to make orders on the day if you would like to and there will also be a trunk show. Yeah, more fun for everyone.
Beautiful Yarn-So Many New Choices
The yarns we have chosen this time are really different. As MaryAnn was getting the samples put together I heard a lot of oohs and ahhs. Very intriguing to see what can come from these amazing yarns. So, like before we there will be a limited number of tickets, first come first served. Oh, and if you attend you will be entitled to 10% off any orders placed. You could in fact have a say in what yarns we get to stock in the store.
Summer Knitting Ideas
the colors, the textures, light and airy, fun and fashionable. We have so many cottons, bamboo’s, silks, flax etc., etc. Whether you are knitting while you travel, knitting when you arrive or planning for things to wear once you get there, we have you covered.
Like a quick and simple top great for knitting whilst you travel–http://www.ravelry.com/designers/kathy-sasser
How about a top for taking in the ray’s? Perhaps you might want to start this before you leave, or a nice cover up for on your way to the pool?
How About a Swimsuit Coverup
The Beauty of Temperate Weather
We are so very, very lucky to live in a place where the temperatures are not extreme. A lot of the things we can wear here can be worn all year round, OK perhaps not the hat. Just by adjusting the type of yarn used, or layering it with other items of clothing these or many items like them can go from beach to the board room, office to evening cocktails. Going on a cruise?
A little black dress can be transformed by the addition of a little sparkle in a cardigan. Black or white pants with a bright colorful top. With the addition of a light and airy shawl or summer scarf even the simplest of outfits can be made to look very sophisticated or very hip. Come on in and see all the different types of yarn we have for this time of the year, I am certain you will be impressed.
We Have Lots of Great Gift Solutions
Running out of time? Only 6 days to go. We have lots of last minute gifts in the store, and if all else fails you, how about a gift certificate?
