Eye Candy

Have you ever looked at the Flat Feet sock flats and wondered how they knit up? Here's one example of a pair, knitted in ribbing, from one of the Patriotic color schemes. DaleAnn did this pair, and you see there's plenty left over. There's no ball of yarn to tangle or chase around, so this is a good option for travel. Check them out!
Here are the entries for July for the Summer Knitting Contest. This month's category is "shawl or shrug." Be sure to stop in and drop your vote into the teapot. There's a crochet entry this month!
Look at this happy Princess! This is a reminder to all of you that Yarn Cravin' is family friendly. Just because it's summer, and kids are out of school, don't stay away! Your kids are welcome Yarn Cravin' while you shop! Besides, Addi Purl loves the company of people her age.

It's easier for them to get on the floor to play with her!

New patterns have just arrived and DaleAnn and Bobbie told me the other day how many days it is until Christmas. (eeeeeek!) It's never too early to get started on your holiday gifts. (Mittens? Snow Buddies? Dog sweaters?)

Hot Off The Press!

Get them while you can, friends. The super-deluxe, "I Love Yarn Cravin'" shirts are here! These shirts are sized up to 3x and come in several colors. They are unisex sized and will fit us all. (No puny girly cut t-shirts, knitters, but we can probably arrange for some of those if there's a need/desire.) Even better, they are made right here in Toledo, so we are supporting another local small business.

The July/August Sock Club Yarn has arrived and it's a deliciously soft cotton yarn in sky blue. You have to see it and touch it to believe how soft it really is. It's waiting for you!

Cherry Tree Hill semi-solid sock yarns have arrived, and no two colors are the same. These are going fast, knitters. It's been a long time since I have seen such deeply saturated colors that are so gorgeous. Buying two would make beautiful stranded colorwork... I'm thinking the gorgeous Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang.

Spinners! There's some gorgeous new roving in the shop also. If you're itching to spin and want something new without having to go online to order it, Yarn Cravin' is your place to find it.

I hope you've been using this little cool break in the weather to knit, knit, knit.

Remember, while Bobbie is on vacation, there's a SALE at Yarn Cravin'. It lasts until she returns on July 7th.
