close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Sunday, September 1, 2013


Are you all feeling that little change in the air?  I know it's still getting nice and warm most days, but fall is just waiting to explode, and we are getting ready ay Close Knit. Fall yarn orders are arriving almost daily, the knitting books and magazines are looking good, and we are returning to our extended hours this week.
I was particularly excited to see Debbie Bliss Blue Faced Leicester DK arrive last week.  Look at the cute little sheep silhouette on the label!  We have been carrying the Aran weight of this yarn in an amazing range of colors since last fall, and it is such a classically beautiful wooly wool.  The DK is equally timeless, but in a slightly lighter weight and a more heathered color palette.
Take a look at the pretty yarn close up.  This would be amazing for some subtle colorwork, don't you think?  I haven't decided what I need to make with this yet.  Any suggestions?
This shipment also included more Baby Cashmerino than you can imagine.  I spent a good two hours getting it on the shelves last week.  If you have a baby project in the works, you should be able to find everything you need.

The Fall 2013 Interweave Knits is pretty durn nice, and the Interweave Holiday Gifts 2013 has several real gems in it, too.  More on those this week.

Since the knitting season is gearing back up again, we are returning to our regular hours this week, although we will be closed on Monday, September 2nd for Labor Day.  Starting Tuesday, September 3rd, we would love to see you 10-6 Monday through Friday, 10-5 on Saturday, and 11-4 on Sunday.  Open Knit Night will continue on Wednesday nights from 6-9 PM.  Fall is's time to knit!
