If you are new to our weekly newsletters, here is some information about us. We have added all our past newsletters to our blog so if you want to you can read more about my irrational fear of roaches or how I lost my keys and found them in an unusual place.
I started to dislike writing this newsletter. I love sharing with you, but I keep missing things. There are too many events, too many products, too many cool ideas that I wanted to share.
Every time I started to write the newsletter, I would draw a blank. I would write it down, misplace where I wrote it, feel like I was missing something, and then get distracted.
So I did what anyone would do – I ignored the newsletter for a week. Surprisingly it was still there, and I still had no answers.
Then I had an excellent idea. I could break it up into different emails. I assigned our brilliant employee Hope to put together a weekly email of upcoming classes to send out on Mondays. She is on top of it!
Going forward, this email will be about our store and what we’re doing. We want to send you inspiration, and show you what’s new in the shop. If we have a sale, I’ll post it here. Probably at the bottom, so I make you have to read the whole thing. 😉
Basically, what I’m telling you is open this one if you want to read something funny and see new stuff, open the Monday one if you want to be reminded of the classes that you wrote down on that sticky note that you have no idea where you put it.
What We’re Working On
I’m dedicating this week’s section to Lily’s finished project.
She learned Tunisian Crochet and finished this dishtowel made out of Wool and the Gang Cotton. She loved it so much she’s making a matching set with the blue border yarn.
NOTE: While writing this post she finished her other one! Congratulations Lily!
Samples Sell Yarn
We have yarn from Abstract Fiber that wasn’t selling very well. The colors are vibrant and rich and clearly, needed a sample. Beth, one of our awesome sample knitters, whipped up this elegant Adventurer Scarf by Ambah O’Brien for us. Wow, just wow!
New Bases Wha??
We have tried out a few new bases recently that we love. We have our wool and hemp sport base, and our recycled wool and Tencel fingering base. Now meet our new worsted base that is only in our store and not on our website yet. It’s merino wool and alpaca with a stunning high-twist!
We call this series our Soda. You have Sprite, Coke, Orange Soda, and Graveyard. (when you mix them all.) You have to see this in person!
Did you see our IGTV Q & A? Yeah… It’s as bad as you think and also hilarious. We have another episode coming up this week. (I hope Lily lets me pick out the picture again. I have a feeling she won’t)
