New Linen and Knit.Wear

A few new things for you!

We are trying out Marks & Kattens Linen in some great rich colors.  It's only $9.25 for 50g of pure linen.  Let us know what you think.  If you like it, we'll see about getting more.

We also have the second issue of knit.wear.  The first issue was AMAZING.  It also sold out in just a few weeks, and we had a hard time getting our hands on any more copies.  Eunny Jang makes an interesting point in her editor's note about finding the intersection of pieces that you'd like to knit and pieces you'd actually like to wear.  I agree that the designs in knit.wear more often than not fit nicely into both categories.  In addition, the magazine is beautiful, and the articles are interesting.  I'll show you more details and have yarn suggestions for you soon.  In the mean time, come grab your copy while we have them.

Also, we are on summer hours now.  We'll be open from 11-6 during the week (M-F), with Wednesday night Open Knit going until 9PM.  Saturday is still 10-5 and Sunday is still 11-4.  Also, please join us on Monday nights for Knit Night at Cruzroom, just a few blocks away!
