We want to thank all our friends who stopped by to wish us Happy Birthday this Saturday. It was a very special day and not just because of the delicious cupcakes and wonderful espresso drinks. The weather was perfect with just a hint of fall in the air as we started the morning, and the garden is always a welcome spot to relax and socialize. It was a lot of fun to share our favorite fibers and wonderful books with local knitters that came to celebrate our eight years of being the most beautiful and welcoming place to knit in Fort Collins.
On Sunday, September 23 from 11am – 4pm we will be at the annual KnitWear Event at Lincoln Center in Fort Collins. This event is always a lot of fun, and we’re very excited to be participating again this year! It’s a great chance for yarn lovers of all types to come together and see what’s new, get some help and do a little shopping. One of our featured yarns this year will be Boulder-based Sunshine Yarns. The more we see this yarn and the more we knit with it, the more we love it! Be sure to stop by our booth and take a look at Sunshine Yarns, along with everything else we’ll have that day. We’re also offering a special coupon for people who visit us – don’t miss it!

Our next knit-a-long is a good one! We’re making the Fightin' Words fingerless gloves by Wattsolak Designs. This knit-a-long begins Tuesday, October 2 from 6:00 - 8:00pm, and we’ll be meeting two additional Tuesdays (October 9 and 23 – same time, same place) to help each other along. We’re offering 20% off the materials you purchase for this knit-a-long, and we highly recommend using the Sunshine Yarns mentioned above. Stop by the shop to see the colors we have available and to sign up!
