Well hello there,
How are you doing? Are you keeping up with the weather? We have cold mornings, hot days, and cooler nights. It’s a good job we have layers. Did you know there are other parts of the country that have two wardrobes, or maybe more? Mine is year round, is yours? I tried it once, putting away my cold weather clothes or my warm weather clothes but I soon found I had to get them out again.
It is the same in the store. In parts of the country they have their spring/summer and autumn/winter selections out. At Yarnitudes we have it all out all the time. Apart from here in Sonoma County so many people travel all over and you never know what you might want. Of course we do have more selection of each at different times and we always try to keep up with the new things.
We have just stocked up on some really great cottons and cotton mixes. They are really pretty, soft and some are unusual. There are lots of wonderful colors too. They have to be seen to be believed and just you wait until you see how they all work together.
To emphasize what I have just said, we have just got a large order in from Malabrigo, this time it is all wool. Last time, not sure if you remember we had some of their wonderful silk too. Talk about an all season fabric nothing works as well as silk to keep you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cool, not sure how it does that.
Also just arrived MadelineTosh in Prairie, DK, Vintage, and Pashimina, can we ask for more?
Well it’s almost hop time, are you ready? We almost are, we definitely will be by Friday night, he he!
I have picked up the project bags, they are so CUTE and I will be stuffing away very soon. I think you will be extremely happy with them. Here is our list of activities for the weekend here at Yarnitudes.
Expect a quick note from us on Friday evening to let you know about the special deals we have in store for you during the Hop!

All of the demos are free on a first come first served basis and as always space is limited.
All of these demos will be hands on and materials will be provided. Of course as always space is limited to 6 participants for each session so plan ahead.
Don’t forget that on Monday we have the Ravelry Classes
Tamara will be back to give two classes on Ravelry.
11-12.30 Ravelry Basics (SPACE AVAILABLE)
1-2.30 Advanced Ravelry (FULL)
These classes are free. We already have people signed up for both so if you want to join in please call ASAP as space is limited and we only have a few spaces left. The Advanced Ravelry Class is FULL. If there is enough interest we can schedule this again the next time she is in town. There is still space available in the Basics class.
If you are attending either of these sessions please remember your iPad, tablet or laptop and make sure you have your Ravelry account set up ahead of time. If you need help with this we will be happy to help you before Friday.
Well have we got you excited? I hope so. We have been working very hard to make this an exceptional Hop and a spectacular July.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
Until next time, take care and Happy Yarning!!
