Yes, Annie might be known for her painting and beautiful stitching, but she also has quite the knack for knitting! Her latest piece is this absolutely amazing fair-isle hat!

Back to the yarn...
Yarn Over New York
We decided to keep some of the beautiful yarns and sock blanks from Yarn Over New York for our store! These yarns are unique because they're all dyed in an apartment in Harlem! So show your love for a local dyer and knitting by starting a pair of socks or a shawl with this great yarn!
Juniper Moon
We have 3 new yarns from Juniper Moon! On the far left, Stargazer. This yarn is a sport weight consisting of Llama and silk making it super smooth and soft. The middle yarn is Findley DK. Per it's name, it's a DK weight yarn that's 50% silk and 50% merino wool. We made the duotone cowl and it's absolutely lovely! Last but not least, on the far right, Stratus. This is a light and airy chunky yarn made up of wool, nylon, baby alpaca, and yak! It's chunky knitting without the heaviness. Perfect for a cowl!
Pashmina from Madelintosh
While this isn't a new yarn to the store we did get some new colors in. Pashmina is a sport weight yarn with lots of yardage and great drape. It's made up of silk, wool, and cashmere so it's soft and luxurious.
Ella Rae and Noro
Ella Rae has made a beautiful new chunky yarn (on the left)! Cozy Alpaca Chunky has a great sheen to it and 120 yards per skein! From Noro we have the new Tennen yarn! It's an Aran weight made up of wool, silk and alpaca. While this isn't like most Noro yarns that self stripe, this yarn is really soft  and has 275 yards!
Pure Bliss Collection by Debbie Bliss
Debbie Bliss has a new line that's simply to die for! It's the Pure Bliss Collection and we're thrilled to have it at Annie and Co! These yarns are luxurious and we can't wait to knit with them. On the right, Lhasa. This is a chunky chainette made of cashmere and yak. It's one of the softest yarns we've ever felt! On the left, Falkland Aran. This is an aran weight yarn named after the location the sheep roam freely in. It has a tight twist giving it great stitch definition and a traditional feel. It's a true classic.
We can't wait to help you start a project with any of these fabulous yarns! It's not to late to get started on a comfy sweater or quick cowl!
We hope to see you soon!
Here at Annies!
First we'd love to thank all the wonderful customers that came to see us for the NYC Yarn Crawl! This was our most successful year to date and we couldn't have done it without all of you! We hope you had as much fun as we did and can't wait to see the projects you start with your new yarns!

 New Yarns from Trendsetter!
What better way to spend your labor day weekend then by getting a jump on your fall knitting?! And we have just the yarns to get you started!
Royal Cashmere by Laines du Nord
If we could make you feel this through your screen we would! The only thing that makes cashmere even better is when it's a chainette. The soft, lightness of this yarn makes every ball feel like a cloud! You'll want this around you all year round in a pattern like the Cozy Ascot Scarf or A Reversible Headband!
Visone by Laines du Nord
This yarn has a really unique texture that's going to take your knitting to a fun level! It's 66% Merino Wool and 34% nylon and has a great fuzziness to it!
A sweater in this yarn will make you want to hug yourself all day long! Something like the Light Sweater for you or Baby Blossom Sweater for a wee one! The fluffiness of this yarn is perfect for hiding little stitch mistakes too!
Super Color by Lana Grossa
This yarn gradients on it's own so sit back with an easy pattern and let it do the work! It's a aran weight chainette with a blend of wool and alpaca making it super soft and airy. A simple Gradient Scarf or this Gradient Poncho would be perfect to get your ready for chillier weather!
Tendenza by Lana Grossa
Boucle is back baby! If you're not familiar with what a boucle yarn is here's the skinny. Boucle is a yarn made of small loops of threads, giving it a loopy textured fabric when it's knit. It's super fun to knit with and, once again, is great at hiding boo-boo's. It's versatile in that it can be used on  large needle for a light cover up like the Boucle Cocoon or on smaller needles for a tighter fabric for simple fingerless gloves or the ribbing on a hat!
These yarns are in the store, ready for labor day weekend as your newest project! Be sure to call or stop by get them before the holiday!

Annie's Weekly Exclusive!!

This week our entire stock of Kenzie are 10% off!!  

This yarn is what we would call a "light" worsted. It's a great in-between for projects asking for a DK or Worsted weight yarn, making it very versatile. As always, you'll want to check your gauge first!

 

We found a little inspiration in the latest Vogue Knitting Magazine with the cutest Fair Isle Cowl!

This yarn is perfect and the color opportunities are endless!

We also found these fabulous ravelry patterns that we think would be great in Kenzie!

 

Stop by the store today to get some of this great yarn!

MaggiKnits Weekend 
We are sad to say that the MaggiKnits weekend has been cancelled due to lack of interest. We are hoping to schedule it for another time that will be better for Maggie and our customers.
We're sorry for any inconvenience this causes. If you have paid a deposit for any part of the weekend we will issue you a refund or store credit.
Have a great weekend!

 Ancient Arts Yarn
When we saw this yarn at TNNA we knew we had to bring it into the store! This is a hand-dyed sock yarn that comes in some truly unique colors. Some are a combination of beautiful colors to make great blends and others have a special twist!
A few of their yarns are dyed to mimic different dog and cat breeds!! From Calicos to Dalmatians to German Shepherds! I mean, why wouldn't you want to have a pair of socks or knitted hat that looks just like your pet?!
Not only will you match your dear pet but you will also feel good about purchasing this yarn. A portion of the proceeds from these particular colorways goes towards animal shelters! So sweet!
So be sure to come to the store to pick out some yarn for your next project that you and your pet will love!
