October Stuff of the Month
Yarn of the Month: Cascade's Pastaza 50% Llama 50% wool
receive 10% off all month!





Pattern of the Month:
Lisa Ellis' Happy Hallowtwining Hat made w/Pastaza (of course) *grin*
Come in for the pattern and/or take the class and learn how to twine w/Lisa. Twining is unique, European technique that will make any knitted item air resistant. This is a perfect gift for folks you know who like to spend lots of time in the winter weather fun.






Book of the Month:
"Knitting for Dummies" This is NOT a good gift idea. :-) This simple reference book is packed w/lots of basic & advanced knitting information. I really like the pictures too. Give me visuals.







Gadget of the Month:
Susan Bates Knit Chek. <-- And yes. "Chek" is spelled correctly. Is it me or have the numbers on hooks & needles gotten smaller over the years? hmmm.... Anyhoo, the Knit Chek can be used to check the size of your crochet hooks & knitting needles in a flash.
