News Update - March 16, 2007

It looks like spring may finally be heading our way at last! And just in time for our new cotton yarns that have come in:

Skacel Namaste has a light aroma therapy of sandalwood, to make knitting even more enjoyable!
Ornaghi Filati Gong (click on "Products" and select "Gong")
Ornaghi Filati Alicante (same fiber)

Some photo samples for you (although the color range we have run from pale yellow to deep blue in the Filati Gong and bright orange to summer greens in the Filati Alicante). Stop in and check them out for yourself!

There's so much more yarn that has come in - so stop by soon!

And looking ahead to summer - we're pleased to announce that we're sponsoring the Quad Cities SnB's knitting workshop August 3 & 4, 2007.

Beth Brown-Reinsel is an internationally recoginzed knitting instructor and author who will be teaching the two classes.

The workshop is comprised of two different one-day classes (one for Norwegian Mittens and one for Aran Cardigans from the Top) at $65 per class; this includes the handouts/patterns that Beth gives to the classes.

Space is limited! For further details and reservations, please contact the Quad Cities SnB by email: quadcitysnb @
