FiNALly! The weekend Jacket is IN!

I've got 50 copies. Count 'em. 50!

Things were held up at the Canadian boarder due to some ....ahem... shake-up last week.
All packages have now been released and we finally recieved the
"Weekend Jacket" pattern and plenty of
Chunky Marble yarn.
Whoohooo! (It's about time.)

Our winter hours begin October 1st (TOMORROW). So listen up!

Monday 10-8pm
Tuesday-Thursday 10-6pm

Friday 12-8 pm <-----HERE'S THE BIG CHANGE!!!
Saturday 10-5pm

We have a VERY large part of our clientele that needs later hours for shopping.
We're here to please!
We have lots planned for Friday nights including fun, education & surprises.
**This Friday, October 2nd begins our 1st fun, funky, Friday Night Knitting Club!**

Christmas is coming and Yoshi's getting fat!

It's time to get started on those holiday gifts!

How about got 20 gifts for UNDER $20 to get you started?

Let's concentrate on small, quick & easy. And in this economy affordable.
We have fingerless gloves, hats, scarves, Bella (Twilight) mittens, socks, Christmas stockings and more!
Suggestions include the yarn & patterns.
To sweeten the deal we're offering help on Friday's for those who need it.

Yep. We'll get cha goin'. :-)

~~Yorkie Yarns Tid Bits~

  • Bring in your old Yorkshire Yarns bags for reuse and get .25 cents off your purchase.
  • Kerlina still needs Gators. She has about 170 made and has reached her goal for October 1st. But check this out. The goal has been increased to 700 to cover the entire battalion. We need to continue knitting until we're done! Kerlina will continue to gather completed gators till the goal is met.
