Bags, Yarns, and Holiday Hours

More cute bags arrived on Friday from Dig This Chick.  The bags are really high-quality, and the little appliques are so sweet.  We have five different color combos.  These are handmade by a Montana artist, and she does great work!
We also welcomed a few yarns from Berroco this week.  (Ooo, take a look at their new site!)  This is Boboli QuickWe have a nice little mitten pattern available at the shop for this yarn.
And this is Quasar.
Berroco has a really nice free cowl pattern using this yarn, Seyfert.  Just one ball makes a really generous cowl.  Perfect mindless holiday knitting.

We have lots of new stuff, too, including fresh batches of Magnum, Gradient, Spud & Chloe, Blue Sky Alpacas, and a brand new yarn from Malabrigo called Rastita.  I'll have more ideas and inspiration for you all later this week.

As for the next week, we will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.  We will close up at 3PM on Christmas Eve and at 5PM on New Year's Eve.  Open Knit Nights on Wednesday night are on hold until January 9.  Otherwise, we'll be open regular hours.  Maybe you need to send someone in for a last minute gift?  Maybe you'll have a gift certificate to redeem this week?  Come and see us!
