Halloween shop hours

This is just a reminder that the shop will be closing early today for Halloween.

We will be closing at 5 pm today.

(At our house, it's a two person job to hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters. One to hold back the dogs and one to hand out candy. Besides, I don't want to miss out on the cute neighborhood kids in their costumes!)

I sincerely hope this won't inconvenience anyone.

I Brake for Sheep!

It's probably no secret that I love wool. Heck, I'm surrounded by it all day.

So, I also love little sheepy things - and since the holidays are right around the corner, I'm starting to stock up on cute sheepy gifty things for the store.

Today I have some new sheepy arrivals for you!

First up, we have received more cute little project bags with cute little embroidered sheep. They are also lined on the inside.

We also have little sheep stitch markers - they come in flocks of 6.

Just as soon as I had opened up the last box of sheep things, UPS showed up with MORE!

We have cases (they come in all sorts of colors), small notion bags (again, available in different colors) and sheepy keychains (sorry, they only come in white sheep or grey sheep - other colors would just be silly for sheep!)

Cherries in February

February - It seems such a long way away.

And cherries in February? Not in Minnesota, you say.

Ok, I'm not talking real cherries (the fruit), but some wonderful spinning and weaving equipment from Schacht made out of Cherry wood and as you know, February will be here in a blink of the eye!

A few years ago, Schacht made a select number of Matchless Spinning Wheels out of cherry for their Anniversary Edition wheels. Let me tell you, they are beautiful and spin like a dream (but what Matchless doesn't?).

Yesterday, I received an email from Schacht stating that they will be making a few of their products in Cherry once again -

Yes, the DT Matchless will once again be made in cherry wood, but there will be only a limited number available.

The other equipment that they will be making in cherry are the 8-shaft Baby Wolf Looms (will include a Stroller and Trap) and the Wolf Pup LT (with Trap).

These will start shipping in February, although orders are going in now. If you are interested or have any questions, let me know!

On Pins & Needles......OK Just Needles.

First of all, let me say that I have been seriously behind in announcing the New Arrivals here. We've gotten lots of new yarns and such in the shop....I just haven't had a chance to update the blog. (Shame on me!)

I did want to let you know about the new Interchangeable Needle Sets that have arrived from Knitter's Pride!

We have the wooden Dreamz Interchangeable Deluxe Set:

This set includes needle tips from US 4 to US 11, cables (one 24", two 32" and one 40"), 1 set of size markers, 8 end caps, 4 cord keys and a cord case.

We also have the Nova Interchangeable Deluxe Set which also includes the nickel needle tips in sizes US 4 to US 11, cables (same as above), a set of size markers, 8 end caps, 4 cord keys and a cord case.

Of course, we also have extra cords in stock from 24" all the way to 60" to make the most out of your interchangeable sets!
