The Blue Sparkly Button is BACK!
'Cuz we all need more sparkle in our lives!
We finally figured out how to bling up our card reader again and we're so happy! We have literally had customers asking almost daily what happened to the Blue Sparkly Button. Now it's a Blue Sparkly Dot on the "yes" button, and we've added some sparkle to the red X on the "no" button, too!

Happy Sparkle Days!

Featured Pattern & Yarn
Soft and Luscious Eco Alpaca stars in this charming scarf! It's ribbing with a twist - every few rows, you do a double-wrapped purl, then on the next row, work this extra-long stitch as a sort of small cable. Easy and elegant! Best yet - the Jasmine Scarf is a FREE Ravelry download!

So Much Cool New Stuff
We have so many wonderful new things in stock! The ones we're most excited about are the cushy slippers for by Snoozies. Not only do they have wonderful footies, but they also have a KIT to make a matching blanket - so cool!

We're also totally in LOVE with the magical little Fairy Scarf Kits. They come in a sweet box with several mini-skeins of yarn and a slew of ribbon flowers. Make a flowered fairy scarf for a child you love, and read them the Story of the Fairy Scarf, in which the knitter puts their dreams into the scarf and the child who receives it has a childhood filled with "beautiful dreams and playful thoughts."  SWEET!


Days until Christmas: 29
Days until Hanukkah: 6

Wow! Hanukkah's less than a week away!


The Tip Jar
If you're playing Yarn Chicken and trying to see if you have enough yarn left for one more row, try weighing your remaining yarn using your kitchen scale. If the 100 gram ball has 220 yards and you have 10 grams left, that's about 22 yards! (Yes, we use grams with yards. The math is easier that way, no matter what your jr. high math teacher said.)
