Seven Weeks and Counting!

Whoa, we aren't quite sure where the time has gone - everywhere you look, it seems like Christmas is imminent.  And then we looked at the calendar...and it is!  Seven weeks and counting as a matter of fact! Just in time: new in the shop is Olympia from Lana Grossa.  It'll make colorful projects quickly for everyone who's made your knit-worthy list!  This super bulky yarn is a machine washable blend of wool and acrylic, in a single ply. The marled colors are fantastic and perfect for quick knits  - 1 skein is enough for a hat, 2 for a cowl!  We've only shown 6 of the 11 colorways available...stop in the shop to see them all!

There are also two pattern leaflets from Lana Grossa featuring fifteen projects each that highlight the yarn perfectly -- and for four bucks each, you get a lot of bang for your buck! 


A Note from Christina, Organizer of Threads of Kindness:

Hello everyone...I'd like to invite you to join a group that is very near to my heart as I know it is for many of you.  We are working to provide hospice patients in middle Tennessee with a blanket or shawl for a little comfort at a time when they may most need it and preemie blankets and hats to many of the Nashville's Neo-Natal units.  If you think this giving opportunity may be right for you, please reach out to us.  We are fortunate to have generous yarn donations from Haus of Yarn helping us along our way and would love to share our stash with you.
