Happy New Year Yarnivores!

The new year always inspires us with hope for all manner of things, including dreams of new projects, learning new tricks, and enjoying our craft. What do you hope for in the new year? We wish you joy in all things yarn and satisfaction in learning new skills.
Note that we'll be off celebrating the New Year - we'll close at 3 on New Year's Eve and will be closed on New Year's Day. Normal hours resume on January 2nd.

Yarn and Pattern Ideas
Lots of new yarns on the way, like Wonderland Yarns' new gradient cakes, Blossoms! 80% superwash merino/20% nylon, 425 yards of fingering weight (#1) in each cake. We've also got a fresh shipment of James Brett Northern Lights and Cascade Yarn Whirligig. Tons o' gradient fun!

Need pattern inspiration? Knitters can check out Gradient Style, a new book from Interweave. Crocheters can find ideas like Sophie's Dream (blanket by Dedri Uys), Grinda Shawl (by Tatsiana Kupryianchyk), or the Saturday Sweater (by Tamara Kelly)! 

The Tip Jar

Got a rough spot on your wood or bamboo needle or hook? Smooth that sucker out with an emery board, then give it a rub down with a bit of wax paper or a candle to finish. Waxing your wood or bamboo needles/hooks is a good idea for regular maintenance, too.
