Where has the Summer gone – gone the way that most Summer’s do! With visiting, relaxing and of course always knitting. While is has been an absolutely spectacular Summer, it is time to think of Fall and Winter and all the joys that they bring. We are really thinking of Winter at Mad About Ewe! The Winter yarns and books are pouring in the doors and we are scrambling for space! Whew – good thing that the Summer Sale is here!
Jess posted last week on our Ravelry forum and I couldn’t say it any better:
Starting on Monday, August 17th and running until Monday, August 31st, we will be having a sale at the shop! There are over 100 different yarns marked down anywhere from 20 to 70% off! There are some good deals to be had and it’s a great time to get a head start on your Fall knitting!
So …. Please …. come in for a visit and do us both a favour …. Help us make room for more yarn! And get a head start on your Fall knitting!
Well there are 5 new sock yarns; three from Regia, including the new Regia Pairfect – knit yourselves a perfect pair of striping socks! Corrie Socks a gorgeous 75% Corriedale and 25% Nylon Hand-dyed Sock yarn from Happy Fuzzy Yarns; and SuperSoxx Cashmere is back in 6 soft, luscious, touchable shades.
There is a stunning spun mohair yarn from Diamond Luxury, Pure SuperKid Mohair; The new Hemp Tweed from Rowan Yarns; new colours in the baby staples Baby Bamboo and Sirdar Snuggly and, and, and the list goes on.
So many new books are arriving – The Fall Knitscene is back in stock; Rowan 58 is here and so much more.
For the Felters we have the new Interweave Special on Felting and a ton (slight exaggeration here) of the Bheda wool back in stock. We also have a new style of felting needle – it pulls the fiber out of the needle felting to form hair or halo texture – creative people are always thinking of new ways to do things!
Don’t forget that next Saturday is the Picknit at Neck Point Park. We will be at the beach knitting from 11:00 until 3:00 and hope to see you there.
Jess and I are working on the Next KAL – we will keep you posted!
We have been working on the Fall Class Schedule and hope to have it up on the site by the end of August. I have been working on some Cowichan Style items for the Fall Classes – looking forward to teaching and sharing.
