Trunk Shows and Sock Clubs and New Things... Oh My!

If you were fortunate enough to be at Yarn Cravin' on November 12, then you know just how gorgeous the items from the HPKY Trunk Show were in person. There are photos below of a few items. If you missed it (we know there are some nasty cold and tummy bugs going around), never fear! Bobbie and Dale made sure to keep some of the items on hand to sell in the shop.

A couple nights ago was the last meeting of Yarn Cravin's Sock Club for 2011. Here is the last installment of yarn:

Here are some projects from the August yarn, dyed by BadAmy! She is a genius with self-striping yarns.

Now, on the new goodies at Yarn Cravin'... Do you like bags? I know I like bags. Bags are our friends!

New to Yarn Cravin' are these totes in all shapes, sizes and colors by Hadaki. There's even a catalog for you to look through so that you can order exactly what you want! Of course, the shop will carry several colors and styles if instant gratification is more your style.

New bags!

The insides are full of pockets, and the bags zip closed.

Do you love Noro yarns? There's a brand new Noro book available, full of accessories like mitts, cowls, scarves, and hats. This fiber enthusiast can't wait to knit the entrelac mittens!


Now, a couple of notes about the upcoming holidays:

*Yarn Cravin' IS open the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving.

*The Saturday after Thanksgiving is Small Business Saturday - a day to support small, independent businesses. Support Main Street, not Wall Street!

*As in years past, you can still fill out a "Wish List" card at the shop to help loved ones with gift ideas for you! Just stop by, fill out a Wish List with items you would like to receive, and send your friends, family and loved ones to Yarn Cravin' to shop for you.

Also, if you know Mary Derck, who sometimes helps out at Yarn Cravin', send her good thoughts and wishes this weekend. She is getting married this Saturday, Nov. 19!
Congratulations, Mary and Lee!
