Fall Color at Yarn Cravin'

Your trees may be looking like this... Fall 2012

And your yard might be starting to look like this... DSC_0707

 While that's all pretty to look at, inside Yarn Cravin', it's looking like this:


The Fall and Winter yarns have arrived, and there is so much new that it can hardly all fit here at once, but here goes.

Sock Knitters!  New sock yarns are in!  If you loved knitting with the DK weight Indulgence last year, it is back in all new colors.
New to YC are sock yarns from Blue Ridge Yarns. There are combos with a coordinating yarn for heel and toe, and bundles of four mini skeins to make your own stripes or colorwork.


Lots of new baby yarns have come in also. JellyBeanz is now in BIG, full size skeins. Many of you have found that it makes great, worsted weight socks. DSC_0702

A new yarn is MayPole, a synthetic boucle, that is super soft. DSC_0701

Some old favorites now have new colors, like Boboli and Angel... DSC_0705 DSC_0698

Liberty Wool has new books out, new colors, and a new lighter weight, if one doesn't want to use worsted.

Looking for something fun and fluffy? Try Caribou! New and different novelty yarns just keep coming. This one makes a great cowl, and will also make great trim on mittens or other garments. It is flying out of the shop.
Ella Rae introduced a chunky version of their gorgeous, color-saturated yarns, just in time for cold weather.Think quick knits! DSC_0687

Some lovely childrens' books arrived, complete with patterns at the end of the story for making the toys and blankies featured within. What a great gift for an expectant parent, or a knitting friend.

Have projects requiring superwash yarn? Perfection might fit the bill! So many colors... DSC_0681

New colors of Encore have come in also... This one is very OSU-ish.


So, forget the leaves for now. They aren't going anywhere. These new yarns might be gone if you don't hurry to Yarn Cravin'!

Reminders:  The shop is now open again on Mondays.  Saturdays the shop is open until FIVE PM.  There may still be room in some classes.  Check the class descriptions on the Yarn Cravin' website  and call the shop.
