Yarn Crawl Carpool Sign Ups are Open!
Go to THIS LINK and fill out the form to share your contact info with other people interested in carpooling. Note: You cannot use this form if you're not willing to make your information visible to other potential carpoolers. We will have a Carpoolers' Meet Up Party a couple of weeks before the Crawl so that you can meet the people you'll be driving with in person!

Featured Pattern & Yarn
Berroco Medina has color changes that flow like ocean waves. This cotton/rayon/acrylic yarn feels smooth and cool on the skin - perfect for a quick end-of-summer knit. It's also machine washable!

Try it with the Gelato Tunic by Amy Christoffers. The side panels create a slimming effect. This tunic would look great with leggings or jeans or dressed up with a pencil skirt. And it's all Garter Stitch, so it's super easy!

New Stuff and Restocks
Lots of notions this week!
-New CUBICS interchangeable tips are now available for use with all Knitters Pride cables.
-KA bamboo needles are restocked, as are Bob-eez Bobbins
-We got the adorable Ann Tudor stitch markers in!
-New from Uneek Yarns - an "identical twin" sock yarn set with two balls wound so that the colors will change at the same exact time! We're in love with it!
-AND MORE! The Yarn Fairy brings us new boxes almost daily!


Days until Christmas: 112
Days until Hanukkah: 89


The Tip Jar
You can easily customize the tip of your wooden or bamboo needles. Just file them to shape with a nail file! Start with a coarse emery board to reshape, then smooth with a fine-grit file, and use a buffer for a final smoothing. Finish with a bit of beeswax or paste wax and you're good to go! (You can use the same method to fix a rough spot.)
