Good News/Bad News

Ok, let's get the bad news over with quickly. Since summer is normally a slow time at a certain local yarn shop and given all the craziness with gas prices, well, recent sales have been slow. That makes it really hard for me to order a wide variety of new exciting products.

So the good news is a more "narrow" variety of exciting products have arrived this week.

~ Indie Dyer Hand dyed sock yarn; 80% superwash merino wool, 20% nylon. 450 yds $25/skein
~ Misti Alpaca Chunky - several new hand painted colors and favorite oldies\
~ Misti Alpaca Lace - eggplant (gorgeous)
~ NORO - Daria cord - several fun colors
~ Jojoland - Melody yarn for the Swirl, Travelling Leaves and Beartracks shawls
~ Just One More Row patterns - multidirectional knitting designs
~ Brittany - 14in Single Point needles
~ Moving Mud - hand blown closures (circles & sticks)
~ Crippenworks needle cases ("straights" holds up to 40 pairs, DP holds up to 14 pair and "circulars" holds up to 20 circular needles)

Coming Monday:
~ Berroco - fall books and yarn

We hope to see you soon, Laura (and staff)

Fall B&B Knitting Weekend

We recently announced the dates for the fall B&B Weekend (Nov 14-16th) and we already have half the rooms spoken for. It's a wonderful time away. Be social or not, knit or read, or walk (or just catch up on sleep?) The food is just perfect. Like Goldilocks would say, not too little, not too much, just....right! And delicious.

I guarantee you will make new friends. We have a couple new faces joining us and several repeat weekenders. (In fact, Myrna gave up a week long Mah Jong cruise just to be with us. This will be her 4th knitting weekend!)

So if you are thinking about joining us, please let me know soon so we can guarantee you a room and a most enjoyable weekend away from all the pressures of your daily routine.

Our home away from home is the Chesterfield Inn in Chesterfield, NH. It is just about 1 hour 10 minutes from the shop right up I91 to Brattleboro and turn right. The inn is just over the VT/NH border.
