Click here  for the details.

We're still trying to squeeze in one or two more quick holiday gift workshops so keep watching for another newsletter.
Miscellaneous Other Stuff
Felted animal kits are back in stock - we have birds, and bears and bunnies and frogs and lots of cute needle felting kits that make great holiday gifts as kits, or can be made in just a few hours to use for ornaments or gift package trim! We are already sold back out of sheep, but if anyone is interested in sheep kits and can let us know by Dec 6, we should probably be able to get more in before Christmas.

We are going to be putting Knitting 101, Crochet 101 and 102 and Hand Spinning 101 on the schedule for January. Let us know if there are any other classes you're seriously interested in.

Gift sets of Interchangeable needles from Hiya Hiya, Chiaogoo and Knitter's Pride are in-stock. The new Knitter's Pride Nova Cubics are due in a few weeks.

We've gotten lots of fantastic new yarns in like Euro Yarns Paqa Pura and Sami, wonderful silks and silk blends from several companies, and restocks of some of our standards, like Universal Deluxe Worsted Superwash, Berroco Vintage, Berroco Blackstone Tweed, and Cascade 128SW Paints. Oh, and did I mention that we've finally gotten retstock of Malabrigo Rasta and Malabrigo Sock.

We've got unbelievably delicious color-coordinated yarns from Shibui (you can mix and match these to make your own blends - we've got Shibui Blend reference material to help you put the different fibers together - my favorites are Silk Cloud and Cima, but I love the Baby Alpaca as well),

For quick cowls, scarves and hats, check out Filatura di Crosca Marte; for supersoft baby gifts, we've got James Brett Flutterby and Cascade Pluscious.

 And another new yarn, well, new to us, and newly re-imported to the US after a several year absence, Naturwolle. This yarn is a handspun bulky with an interesting story. Instead of the fiber being spun and then dyed, with this yarn, the fiber  is dyed in different colors, then the fiber is mixed into large batches by colorway, and then that entire batch of that colorway is turned over to one single hand-spinner who then spins the entire batch. Different colorways are spun by different spinners so they will have slightly different characteristics. We've got about half of our colors in stock, with about 9 more currently being spun for us in Germany and due in about 2 weeks.

Don't forget to let your gift-giving family and friends know that we do have Gift Certificates available.
