Back to almost normal - New Credit Card Terminal; New Yarns; New Colors......

Read all about it here!

A Quick Update on What's Going on in the shop...
 We are mostly back to normal operations again. The powers that be have sent us a new credit card terminal, so we are back to accepting plastic.
They did mess up and not send us the pin pad that goes with it and it won't use our old one, so we're waiting for that - any day now, we hope, but we can only run credits, not debits, until it arrives.
We have gotten some great new yarns in, including a whole pile of Madeline Tosh in new colors, some great new yarns from Berroco and other fun stuff.
Have you tried Flutterby from British yarn company James C Brett? Well, we have it back in White and Cream, along with the patterns that use it, but we've also gotten Universal Yarns version of Flutterby, which they call Bella Chenille. 
Why get 2 similar yarns? 
For the delicious delicious colors!
Click here to see the great solid colors Bella Chenille comes in and here  for the multis, and if you scroll down the page, you'll see the free patterns available. We have a shop model of the baby hoodie for you to check out. The yarn is slightly heavier and is knitted on a slightly larger needle than Flutterby but it makes the same deliciously soft fabric and the colors are all bright and fun for spring, if it ever decides to show up this year.
And we have new colors of BambooBloom - we now have it in a limited number of solids - Black, White (well, sort of a pinkish white), Grey and Gold, in addition to four of the multis. I don't know when or if we'll be able to get more, so grab it while we've got it.
Inventory Reduction Sale is Over, but Classic Elite sale is still on.
Since we still have the Classic Elite yarns special trunk show featuring garments knitted from Cricket and Solstice., we are continuing our sale on these 2 yarns, and the Allegoro and our Silky Alpaca Lace.
And we have 2 other yarns still on sale - they are the Cascade 220 Quattro (not regular Cascade, but only the Quattro on the CEY sale gondola) and Muench Verikeri. Verikeri is a fun yarn with some glitter to it. Muench has sent us 2 shop models for you to check out and free patterns to go with them.
Miscellaneous Sale Notes

We have orange stickered a lot of the yarn that was included in the Inventory Reduction sale. These yarns are now on permanent markdown. Once they're gone, they're gone for good.

We are now sorting through and pulling out older patterns. There are three tubs of patterns on a red cart near the checkout counter. These are patterns we will be discontinuing. You'll want to come by and check out the bins - if there are patterns you've held off buying in the past, you'll want to grab them before they're gone.....
