I am pleased to introduce a new yarn to the store, Illimani Yarns Royal Alpaca 1. A decadent 100% Royal Alpaca worsted weight yarn with 200m per skein. No words can describe how soft and luscious this yarn feels. Stop by soon to find out for yourself!
Please join me for our very first:
World Wide Knit in Public Day
Saturday, June 9, 2012
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Bring your lawn chair and knitting and join me on the front porch or lawn. Stay for a couple of hours or stay for the day. Light refreshments will be available.
Mother’s Day is May 13 and is fast approaching, are you ready? Why not treat her (or be treated to) a Jordana Paige L.J. Kaelms Knitting Bag or Crafter’s Tool Butler. Another popular gift idea are our yarn bowls, or, if you are really not sure, a gift certificate lets mom buy just the right gift.
Why not come out to Carleton Place on Saturday, May 12 (just in time for Mother’s Day) for the Market Square grand opening, home of the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market, which also celebrates its grand opening of the season. The Market Square is just a short walk from the store, located at Beckwith Street and Lake Avenue.
In other news, we’re expanding! Robin is hard at work at transforming the room at the end of the hall into a classroom (or larger sit ‘n knit, the Saturday group is big) and more retail space. We hope to have it ready for June 1.
