Sick of Winter?

Even when it's snowing like crazy, like it was yesterday evening, Yarn Cravin' had some die-hard knitters show up to spend time together. These long, cold nights are good for finishing off projects!

How about some FO's (finished objects) for you all to see?

Here's Barb in her beautiful snowflake hat!

One of our newer knitters shows off a baby hat and mitts.

Julie showed off these lovely lace socks. Aren't they gorgeous?

Nicely done, everyone. And now for some big news...


If you haven't heard already, another Yarn Cravin' Knitting Retreat is being planned. This one will be held overnight, Saturday, April 25 and into the day Sunday, April 26. Lots of surprises are being planned, so be sure to contact the shop and make your reservation. Ask anyone who has attended a previous retreat and they will tell you, it's an event you don't want to miss. Be sure to get signed up soon!

Is This Thing On?

Happy New Year, Knitters!
Long time no see!

We're having a whale of a winter, aren't we?

Even Commodore Perry is pointing the way to get the heck out!

Rest assured, though, at Yarn Cravin', everything is toasty warm, and the Insanknitty has continued pretty much without interruption.

Even on snowy Saturday afternoons, you will find some die-hard knitters gathered together to laugh and knit.

Becky and DaleAnn chatting and knitting.

So what's new? More than I could tell you about here, that's for sure. One highlight, though: come in and get the yarn and pattern for this yummmmmmy Noro sweater. It's NOT the normal, scratchy stuff. This is brand new yarn! The vertical ribs in the pattern are amazingly slimming. Really! Come and see it for yourself.

If socks are your thing, why not consider joining the Sock of The Month Club? It runs every other month, and it's not too late to sign up for the group that will start in February. See the Yarn Cravin' site for class details or call the shop. That delicious yarn is the January/February yarn and it was dyed just for us.

Like always, Tuesday night is Insanknitty Night; open knit night. Come for the social time, friendship and laughter. There's always help or commiseration for your works in progress (WIP's).

If nothing else, PLEASE come in before Sarah devours all the new yarns that are coming in!
