2 Openings in Gloves and Mittens Class!
We had an emergency cancellation in the upcoming Gloves and Mittens class Diane will be teaching next week so we have 2 slots available again.

The class will meet on Monday / Wednesday / Friday Mittens(October 22/24/26) from 530 to 730pm. Novice knitters will knit mittens, more experienced knitters can knit either mittens or gloves.

The registration fee is $65.00. Click Here for the class flier. You can call the shop to pre-register if you can't make it in over the weekend to pay for your registration. The homework assignment that needs to be completed before the Monday session is described in the flier.
Hiring a Holiday Season Sales Associate
We NEED another part-time person to work in the shop for the holiday season, and possibly beyond.
If you're in the shop on a regular basis, you may have noticed some staffing changes. Andrea has left us because 24 hours a day was simply not enough to accomplish everything she was trying to do. Sarah had already joined us to pick up the weekend swing shift hours that we needed someone for, but has stepped up to take over Andrea's hours instead.

So, now we need someone who can work on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, typically from 12noon or so until 4pm or so, at least for the rest of the year. If you're interested in staying on after the Christmas holiday season, the hours will change, but it is possible.

We need a strong knitter, although crocheting, spinning and/or weaving skills are a plus. As many of you know, we spend a lot of time helping people with projects and understanding patterns and putting together yarn and pattern combinations, so these need to be things you are comfortable with. We can teach you the rest. Computer literacy is a must but that's pretty much a requirement everywhere these days.

If you're interested, send me an email, and then stop by the shop and introduce yourself to the staff and talk to them about the position. They get consulted on all hiring decisions these days.
Tango BiColor Mesh 25% Off!
We still have a pile of colors of this quick to knit or crochet mesh yarn, so we marked it down to clear it out. It's a skinnier mesh and a shorter length, so it's great for our younger fashionistas, or if you want to wear several scarves together. We are unable to get more of this specific yarn, so if you've been thinking about it, grab it before it's gone.
New Yarns & Patterns in the Shop!
The current Classic Elite trunk shows - Liberty Wool Kids for Liberty Wool Kids sizes 2 through 12, and Ebony and Ivory knitted in the lovely alpaca and bamboo Vail are on display through the end of the upcoming week. If you haven't stopped in to check them out, you defintely should, especially if you want to knit gifts for kids older than toddler but not yet wearing grown-up styles and sizes. Liberty Wool Kids is a great collection of knitted garments for girls and boys and our Liberty Wool restock is due at the end of the week and Vail is already in stock, along with both books.

Plymouth Holiday Lights (Encore with Glitter) is back in stock, as is Universal Classic Shades and a new yarn from SMC called Passion Chunky - it's a bit like the Classic Shades but slightly heavier and comes in wonderful colors and practically knits itself. And a fun yarn from Berroco called Circus.
Incoming Special Orders!
The last of the Cascade special orders from the Yarn Tasting are on their way and will be in by the end of next week (it takes a full week and then some for the boxes to make it down here from Tukwila, WA). We're also got lots of colors of 128Superwash coming in the same shipment, and Venezia Sport in the next shipment.
And we still have someone's black jacket left on Saturday evening, I think, hanging up in back. If it's yours, please call and let us know when You'll come by and pick it up.
I'm hoping for the MadelineTosh yarn restock and special orders in the next week to ten days, but they haven't called so they may be running behind. If you're waiting on a special order, we'll let you know as soon as we hear more.
