If you have been by the store lately, you will notice that the city now has blocked off the front entrance to our store completely.  You can still park on 78th and walk through the alley into the store, or come through the alley turn into our parking lot and park there.  We again apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for continuing to make your way into the store!

Believe it or not summer is almost over - well, summer as far as school is concerned anyway.  I cant believe that my youngest is starting her senior year at high school in just a week.  It is strange to think of summer being over when it is still in the 100 degree temperature range.  I remember going to school in my new WINTER   outfit - but I digress!

As a final incentive before your schedule starts to fill up driving kids from place to place; come in and take adavantage of our DEBBIE BLISS SALE!  That's right!  CJ decided to put the following Debbie Bliss  yarns 
on special starting Tuesday July 21 - Saturday July 25. 

Choose from the following:

Debbie Bliss Pure Silk - 35% off

Debbie Bliss Cashmerino - DK, Aran and Chunky - 40% off

Debbie Bliss Rialto - 4ply, DK and Aran - 50% off

New Arrivals

We are beginning to get in some of the orders that CJ placed in the last month or so.  For Lantern Moon enthusiasts we have just received  40" long circular needles in both ebony and rosewood in every size.   The longest length we have carried to date has been 32 inch - so for those wider projects this length will be perfect.  As always the needles are lovely, the cable stays straight and the needles turn on the cable so no twisting!

Last winter we began carrying Susuan Todd Bags.  They proved to be very popular and we sold out rather quickly.  Well, they're back!  They are called "The Recycled Bag" - made out of recycled knitted sweaters and are beautifully made.  You can be green and have a great bag at the same time!  Each bag is made from a number of different sweaters in either plain or fancy designs, fully lined with pockets for all your supplies - several sizes available.   Check them out before they disappear.

We have also received Namaste bags and needle cases.  Check out the various styles and colors.

Finally CJ managed to get a special deal on a yarn from Jojoland called Baritone.  For only $3.00 a ball you get a 100% wool, worsted weight yarn.  This would be great to make into a great sweater for colder climates or use as a felting yarn.  Many great colors available - but once it's gone it's gone - so get it while you can.

4th of July Sale Extended

It's just after 2:00 p.m. on July 4th and man are we tired!  This is good news for you!  We are too tired to even think about packing up the yarn - so CJ has decided to just leave the yarn on sale for another week.  That's right!  If you missed the sale or wish you had purchased more - come on in.  
The only downside of this is is that our usual service of winding yarn may be curtailed somewhat during this time.  We will try our best to wind yarn for you but we may have to ask you to come back to the store to give us a bit of extra time to get it done.
