YARN SALE! SuperClearance Starts FRIDAY!
It's that time of year when we need to make room for the new fall yarns. Help us, will you? We'll have a special sale on clearance yarns this Labor Day weekend!
Sale starts Friday, August 30 and runs through Monday, September 2
Discounts of anywhere from 15% to 30% on already discounted clearance yarns
AND - we're spending the whole week putting yarns on clearance, just for y'all!
Featured Pattern & Yarn
We (like many of y'all) get frustrated when a patterns aren't size inclusive. It's like they only want small women to wear them. This pattern is NOT like that. It's designed to fit women from a 28" to a 67" bust! We love the simple, clean-lines of the Ripple Crop Top by Jessie Maed Designs. Not into crop tops? Just buy another ball of yarn and make it bigger. $8.50 (or less) in-store or on Ravelry.
KatieBea (a very good friend of Our Wendy) is shown at right modeling her very first handknit sweater!
This pattern is perfect for a summer-friendly yarn like Bamboo Pop, so you can wear it on even the super-hot days like today.
2019 Crawl Passport PREORDERS starting now!
We expect to have the passports soon. Preorder yours now! $15 (+tax). Early birds get a bag (we usually run out of bags by late September, preorder a passport to make sure you get your bag too!).

The Tip Jar
Color theory 101: Every color has three measurable aspects, Hue, Value, and Chroma. Hue refers to what color it actually is (true blue, yellowy-green, pinkish red, etc), Value is its darkness or lightness (navy blue is a dark true blue, baby blue is light true blue). Chroma is its intensity (royal blue is very intense with high chroma, powder blue is soft with low chroma)
