No Tricks, Only Treats!
September 17, 2023
Yes, we know Halloween is next month, but we have lots of goodies to fill your project bags! Check out our New section or the list below.
Start planning your Crawl, y'all!
This is the 17th year of the Best Little Yarn Crawl In Texas (aka the Hill Country Yarn Crawl). Over the years, we grew from just a few stores to the 13 shops currently participating across several counties in Texas. We continue to evolve the crawl this year, and will have a Treasure Hunt for all you Crawlers! Download and print your treasure map (card) and get it stamped at each store that you visit. Visit at least two stores in each of the four map color zones for Bronze or visit all of the shops for gold. Once you finish, turn in your map to the last store you visit. (There's a printer friendly version or you can splurge on printing the full color style.)
Keep on Scoring!
For those of you who still want to join the knit a long for Skacel's 2023 Scoreboard:
September marks the return of Skacel's Scoreboard knit-together, based on the unique and interactive cowl pattern of the same name. Created by the incomparable Michelle "Knit Purl" Hunter for skacel, Scoreboard yields a hand-knit wearable record of your favorite professional or college football team's season, with each row representing both points scored and points allowed.
Designed using HiKoo® Simplicity, the Scoreboard cowl is worked in a team’s two main colorways, with many knitters opting to add a third color to create visual breaks between games. Simplicity is a DK weight (#3) Superwash Merino blend with a soft twist. This family-friendly fiber is sturdy and machine-washable, without compromising its bounce and softness. Available in a huge variety of solids (Yarnivore has 20 colors in stock!), multis, and metallics, this yarn is an excellent choice for afghans, kidswear, and more! Simplicity has 117 yards in a 50g hank, making it perfect for colorwork, like a striped cowl. 😍
Participating knitters using the featured yarn will qualify for exciting in-season giveaways and prize opportunities! Register on Skacel's website and then follow Skacel's social media and weekly email blasts for opportunities to win!
The Scoreboard Cowl is written for two sizes and uses approximately 3 (6) skeins each of HiKoo® Simplicity in your two team colors, with final amounts based on version knit Short or (Long) and total points scored/allowed during the season. An optional skein of a third color can be used for a visual break between games. For more information about the Scoreboard knit-a-long, go to Skacel's Simplicity Scoreboard page.
