Retreat Reminder and New! New! New!

Today is the last day of summer and that means the Yarn Cravin' Fall Retreat is right around the corner. As of today, 32 people have signed up for the fabulous fun that awaits October 15-16. There are still EIGHT spots left, and we want to make sure you don't miss out on any of the fun and fellowship of this amazing event. Stop in the shop to pay your deposit and reserve your spot. If you've never attended one of our knitting retreats, get a friend and sign up! Your life will never be the same. I have it on good authority that there's a Mystery Knit Along (KAL) in the works!

September 12 was the Trunk Show for Abstract Fibers and it was great fun! Yarn Cravin' was full of wonderful people and beautiful yarns and fibers.



If you weren't able to make it to the trunk show, never fear. Abstract Fibers will be staying at Yarn Cravin', and if there's something you want that is out of stock, we can easily order it for you!

Author Event/Book Signing! There are flyers in the shop announcing this event as well. October 1, at 1:30, at St. Luke's Hospital, Mary Lou Carney, the author of The Truly Terribly Horrible Sweater That Grandma Made Me will be speak and be available to sign books purchased there. We have this book in the shop if you'd like to see it, or purchase it for a loved one. This book is co-authored with Debbie Macomber. Tickets are $10


Boxes and boxes of new yarns for fall and winter are arriving almost daily and some of those yarns are leaving the shop almost as fast as we can price them and get them on the shelves! Here's a peek at some of the new goodies!

Debbie Bliss Paloma

Mountain Meadow Wool. This is organic, fiber friends. The dyes are even all natural!

Noro Hitsuji

Malabrigo Rasta (Bulky) This is flying out of the shop!

Malabrigo Rios

Boboli, by Berocco

Link, a super bulky yarn, knit on size 50 needles! We have the needles on order.

What caught your eye? Better get into Yarn Cravin', fast!

Lastly, co-owner Bobbie recently had major foot surgery and will be out of commission for a little while since she has to be non-weight bearing on that leg. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery. We miss her at Yarn Cravin', and she misses being there! Hang in there, Bobbie!

Packed House and Reminder!

Insanknitty knit nights are becoming more crowded inside Yarn Cravin', especially since temperatures outside have dropped considerably in the past week or so!


It seems nobody wanted to stay out on the porch last week! It was thoughtful of those who already had babies to sit in the sock room, wasn't it? ;-)


Dale Ann showed off a hat from Nordic Knits, the Book of The Month. It's very Ohio State-ish. Feel free to choose other colors! heehee



Monday, September 12 is our first Monday being back open after returning to "regular" hours. Come and celebrate with us at our Abstract Fiber Trunk Show! A rep from Abstract Fiber will be on hand to introduce these gorgeous yarns and fibers for spinning. Items will be available for purchase in the shop, and any colors sold out will be able to be ordered. Click on the link for a preview of what's available. There are going to be some really gorgeous socks walking around Northwest Ohio this winter! It won't end at socks, though. Yarns from lace weight up through worsted are available, at all different price points. It's always exciting to get something new at Yarn Cravin'! The fun starts at 2:00PM, and the shop will stay open until 8:00PM that day for the show.
