It's Still Summer

The calendar may say "back-to-school" but in all reality, it is still summer. There's plenty of time to knit that light-weight sweater or airy shawl you have been dreaming of, if you so desire.

If your mind is already turning toward cooler temps and fall/winter projects, never fear! Some great big boxes of Brown Sheep recently arrived at Yarn Cravin', just full of wool, and gorgeous new colors in addition to your old favorites.

The bus trip to the Michigan Fiber Fest was a "go" and this past Saturday morning, the backyard at Yarn Cravin' became a parking lot for all those lucky enough to get on board that bus!

Someone will have to update us on the trip, and let us know all about their purchases.

A few new things have come into the shop over the last few days...

Lantern Moon Bucket bags. I know some of you have been waiting for these!

New Lantern Moon tape measures. These are such cute little critters!

On September 12, Yarn Cravin' will go back to regular hours and be open again on Mondays. To celebrate, we will be having a TRUNK SHOW from 2:00PM to 8:00PM highlighting Abstract Fibers. Below are just some of the colorways that will carried in the shop, and will be available for purchase on Sept. 12. If there's something that is not available, it can be ordered. Yarns are available from lace weight on up through worsted, and there's more than one kind of sock yarn, including a cashmere blend! Yummmmm.

Abstract Fibers - coming soon to YC


Be sure to put September 12 on your calendar!

Also, Yarn Cravin's website has had a facelift! Be sure to check it out at Yarn Cravin'. The class schedule, newsletter and other info is posted there. Thanks, Mel Cherney, for your hard work on the new website!

One last bit of news. A little birdie told me that shop owner Bobbie just recently celebrated a milestone birthday. If you haven't already wished her a happy birthday, please do! We love you, Bobbie!
