May Happenings

By now you've observed Memorial Day and are hopefully enjoying the beautiful weather that has visited our area. We certainly hope that you have made time to sit and knit on the porch at Yarn Cravin' as well! As always, there is much new happening at the shop.

New yarns and patterns continue to flow into the store. DSC_0237 (2)
This is Firefly, a lovely linen and viscose blend. It's nicer to knit with than plain linen, and drapes beautifully! Look at all the different colors... DSC_0234 (2)

Yes, there are patterns to go along with this yarn, if you don't have something specific already in mind.

A new sock yarn has come in also. Mille Colori by Lang is beautiful and comes in a myriad of shades. 50% wool and 50% acrylic, socks from this yarn will wear like iron.

For those of you who cannot live without bags, we have new ones! These are made from recycled billboards and help women in poverty become independent. DSC_0231 (2)

These smaller bags are made from recycled materials as well. They are perfect for your notions and DPN's! DSC_0232 (2)

Also new to Yarn Cravin' recently is Cascade 220 Sport weight. Now there's another option for baby knits and color-work projects. Come in to see the many beautiful colors of this yarn!

RETREAT NEWS!!!! The Annual Knitting Retreat will be held at Lial Renewal Center in Whitehouse, Ohio, September 14, 15, 16. The cost is $140. As of right now, the Retreat is full - it filled up amazingly fast. There is a waiting list, however, if you want to try to attend. Please call the shop and ask to be on the waiting list. We are excited that the Insanknitty Retreat continues to be a popular event.

SUMMER HOURS: Remember that after Memorial Day, Yarn Cravin' will be closed on Mondays. This is just for the summer.

As always, if there's something you need that Yarn Cravin' does not have, do not hesitate to ask.  We will do everything we can to order it in for you.  Happy Summer!
