Another way change can be wonderful is that it is an opportunity to find new and fabulous yarns! By request and now in stock, we have added Berroco “Comfort Worsted” to our collection of the Comfort line. We have long carried Comfort Chunky & DK, so now the gauge range is complete. If you’ve never tried these amazing 100% acrylic yarns, they are the best value in town and are perfect for blankets, baby garments, and anything you need to be totally washable.
Our next new arrival is Berroco “Ultra Alpaca Tonals.” This is the same fiber and yardage as the Ultra Alpaca, but with the added surprise of tonal (monochromatic) color change. Not stripes, not variegated….just a gentle “pooling” of the colors. Come see our brand new Crocheted Slouchy Beanie using this yarn and you’ll see for yourself.
By popular demand, we also now stock the complete range of sizes in the Addi Lace needles!!! These are not quite as slippery as the Addi Turbo, but are most well known for the very pointy tips and softer cord. If you’ve never tried them, you’re in for a treat.
And now we come to returning favorites! On order and on the way as we speak: Noro “Kureyon” and “Silk Garden.” Yes, also by popular demand, LOTS more Malabrigo!
Friday “Sit ’n Knit & Crochet” Begins
Beginning on Friday, June 3rd, we invite you to join us at So Much Yarn every Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon for our new Free Sit ‘n Knit & Crochet. This is not a class—it is simply a time to relax with old friends and make new ones as you progress on your current knit or crochet project. It’s a great way to wind down after a busy week and get ready for the weekend.
LYS stands for “Local Yarn Shop” and this little “shop hop” gets better every year! The 2013 event will be held on May 16th-19th. That’s right, it’s four days long to give you plenty of time to reach all those wonderful destinations. This is a chance for yarn enthusiasts to check out shops that are perhaps a bit out of the way, as well as your local favorites. Each shop will be featuring a one or two skein project pattern that weekend. The pattern is free to tour participants and the associated yarn is 10% off. There is no fee to participate….you simply pick up a passport from participating shops and let the adventures begin. You will receive a stamp on your passport at each shop you visit. There are 25 shops to visit and the prize structure has been tweaked a little this year. If you visit 8 of the shops you will be entered into a drawing for one of five $100 gift certificate prizes. If you visit 16 of them you will be entered to win one of two $250 gift certificate prizes-that's in addition to the $100 prize drawing. If you visit every shop during the weekend, your passport will be entered to enter the grand prize of a $500 gift certificate-that's in addition to the $100 and $250 prize drawings. The gift certificate will be to the shop of your choice, and you may choose up to 3 shops for the $250 and $500. In addition, each shop will have a drawing each day for a prize with a retail value of $50! There is nothing to lose! Get all the details on the official website: lystour.com.
