Catching Up

Wow! This winter has been a bear, hasn't it?! February 2010 was the second snowiest on record; topped only by Feb. 1900.

It's finally March, and this month seems to have come in like a Lamb, with temps reaching 40 degrees and the SUN shining! The Winter Olympics have ended, and if you participated in Ravelympics over on Ravelry, hopefully you completed your events.

If you haven't stopped by the shop, lately, Tuesday night Insanknitty sessions have been jam-packed to just about standing room only. Don't let that keep you away, though. There's always room for one more. Or two. Or three. :-) Dale Ann and Bobbie just celebrated their THIRD ANNIVERSARY at Yarn Cravin' also! Hooray for all of us! There is a new rule, though:

We just need you all to be aware of the writing on the wall!

Also, remember that classes continue to be in full swing at Yarn Cravin' on just about every day of the week, and at all different time slots. The Winter schedule is winding down, so watch for a spring schedule soon.

Would you like to see the very newest in organizational tools from Namaste? Of course you do! They just arrived at the shop today...

This little box is an accordion file for your circular needles! Inside you'll find over a dozen (I didn't stop to count them, but I'm thinking closer to 24) pockets, plus tabs for labels. The colors match all of your gorgeous knitting bags. There are countless ways to use this handly little box - maybe get one for longer lengths of circulars, and one for shorter lengths? It would make a great gift for a friend who knits exclusively on circulars. Having seen the price today (it's less than $25!!) I know they will fly out the door.

Many knitters are counting down the days until the Spring Retreat in mid-April. If you signed up, but haven't paid yet, get your $$$ in ASAP. All spots are filled, so if for some reason you cannot attend, be sure to let Dale Ann, Bobbie or Annette know right away. Others are anxious to attend.

There have been some new faces dropping into the shop recently. If you see someone you don't know or don't recognize, please say hi and introduce yourself. We want to keep it fun, friendly and informal!
