Crazy for Ewe this week

2016-06-12 09.56.17


Whew! It was a fun and exciting time at TNNA. We came, we saw, and we conquered! Truly, it's an overwhelming time, but we had a plan, and we got SO much great new stuff for you! Brand new yarn from Stacy Charles, Malabrigo, Berroco, Lang, Manos, and more. We opened accounts with chic Shibui, Dancing Leaf, Ewe Ewe Yarns, and even Freia Yarns (bypass the two-year waiting list for new accounts).

Our summer mystery knitalong is ready to launch! Mary has chosen a great wrap worked in Pima Kuri, a silky soft, cotton in juicy colors to brighten your summer wardrobe. Pima Kuri is a worsted weight yarn, so the project goes really fast - you'll be wearing it before This one is an easy pattern, so even relatively new knitters can join in the fun.

It takes three skeins, and we've selected a few favorite combinations to inspire you, but picking the colors is the best part, so come in the shop and see them in person.

Kick off is Saturday, June 18, just before the Summer Solstice!

Come by the shop to choose your colors! Can't make it to the shop? We'll be posting coordinated kits this week, so you can be part of it wherever you are!
