Knitting is Not Just for Winter Anymore
As is typical in Iowa, we jumped from winter right into hot summer days. What happened to spring? Well, it may not be spring outside, but it certainly is inside the yarn shop. We have wonderful summer yarns to knit into spring sweaters, socks, a lightweight shawl for cool evenings and much more. Our latest edition is a sock yarn from Knit One Crochet Too called Pediwick. It's a fabulous yarn for some summer, lacy socks or a light shawl. It's made of 66% bamboo, 34% nylon -- no wool! We have 10 beautiful, solid colors perfect for summer. Come on in, pick up a skein or two and get that summer project going. While you're here, check out the new Nautika yarn, also from Knit One Crochet Too, made from 85% microfiber acrylic and 15% nylon. Another great yarn for a summer project. We also just received the latest editions of Love of Knitting and Knit 'n Style magazines. You can find some great summer projects in these magazines and try the new yarn! We hope to see you soon!
