The ups and downs

Last week I told you about the lovely surprise trunk show from Berroco. The yarn didn't arrive for First Friday, so I was a little disappointed, but then we got two big boxes yesterday, so I was happy again. At least I was until we opened the boxes and found that most of the colors of Millefiori and Millefiori Big were backordered, so, bummed again. Then today, William, our awesome UPS driver, wheeled in two more giant boxes with all the colors of all the yarns, so hooray - happy again! It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride, but I'm thrilled to have beautiful Berroco samples as well as plenty of all the yarns in stock and on the shelves.

So, shall we try this whole trunk show thing again, then? Announcing the Berroco Millefiori and Millefiori Big trunk show now through September 10th. Come this Saturday - see the garments in person and get your pick of the best colors. While you're here, take a look at the Sidewalk sale - you can scoop up some real steals.

Also, in yesterday's newsletter, I forgot to include the Mindful Knitting program we're offering at the end of this month. If you're looking for a way to relax, focus, and be more present in the moment, join us September 27th 6:30-8:00.

I look forward to seeing you this weekend, if not before! You are always welcome here.

This month we're featuring this bold scarf in Berroco's Millefiori Big. We have it in the shop right now in two gorgeous colors. It's an easy granny-square pattern brought up to date with a chunky fiber and on-trend fringe. Come see the samples, and get started on yours today!

In other crochet news, Antonella, the Crochet Queen and everyone's favorite Italian, is on a mission to create more beautiful crochet patterns an sample garments. So far she's done several lovely tops, at least three cowls, two sets of fingerless mitts, and more. Look for that pattern line this fall!
