More New Yarns!
 We don't know about you, but this grey weather really has us in a knitting and crochet mood! Thank goodness there are more new yarns to use for Fall Projects!
Amitola Brushed from Louisa Harding
This is a DK weight mohair that's self striping! Each ball has 328 yards and the colors are oh so fun. Its made up of 60% Goat Mohair, 25% Cotton and 15 % Wool. We have a pattern leaflet and sample in the store for a quick and east wrap that only uses 1 ball of yarn but if that doesn't trip your trigger, check out these other ideas for this yarn:
 
Re:Treat from West Yorkshire Spinners

This is the newest yarn from WYS! It's a chunky weight of 100% British Wool, Blue Faced Kerry Hill to be exact. It's a roving quality with the slightest twist making it perfect for felting and knitting! Each ball has 153 yards and there are more colors coming soon! In the meantime, get inspired by these patterns:
Winterburn Aran from Baa Ram Ewe

If you love Dovestone Aran Naturals you'll be head over heals for Winterburn Aran! The fiber content is slightly different at 50% Blue Faced Leicester and 50% Masham, a breed with smaller ringlets of fleece that have plenty of bounce. The colors are rich and traditional and each skein has 185 yards. You'll want to whip up one of these projects immediately:
Isabella from Sublime
These cute balls are 50% Cotton and 50% Wool making them perfect for baby and kids projects! It's a DK weight and the colors are soft and subtle. You could have one of these projects ready for the next baby in your life in no time:
 
We hope to see you soon.

Since next Wednesday(September 12) marks our official 1 year Anniversary of Stitch and Sip we're going to celebrate with a Yarn Swap
How does it work? During Stitch and Sip (6:30-8:30pm) bring in any yarns from your stash that you haven’t been able to find a use for, and trade them in for something new!
Here are some ground rules:
  • Only bring yarn you are absolutely ready to part with.
  • Because everyone will be bringing yarn with varying price points, it’s best not to come with a specific monetary value in mind that you’re looking to recoup
  • Both Annie and Co and non-Annie and Co yarns are welcome
  • Yarn must still have a label accompanying it (indicating fiber content, yardage, etc.)
  • You must bring something to contribute in order to participate - no coming in just to graze the pile for free
 Yarns that aren't chosen at the end of the swap will be donated.
We hope you've enjoyed this year of Stitch and Sip as much as we have and join us for this fun event!
Holiday Weekend Hours
We will be closed Saturday, September 1 through Monday, September 3 for Labor Day Weekend. We will re-open for regular store hours on Tuesday at 11am. Be sure to stop by the store to get all your projects for the weekend and we hope you have a happy and safe time!
