August Newsletter

August has arrived!
Along with it the fall yarns are starting to arrive at Kniterary!

It feels like Christmas every time!!

Speaking of Christmas...Time to get started on your gift list!

I was looking over the sock yarns yesterday and realized that there are 12 different brands on the shelves! And that is not taking into account the assortment of colours there are. Most recently arrived are new Arequipa, Noro Silk Garden, Berroco metallic Sox and Jawoll Magic. So much to choose from! I have a great selection of sock patterns in as well and when you buy 100 grams of sock yarn you can pick up a pattern at half price!

Other yarns that have come in are:
The new Berroco Campus yarn with some great patterns. It is a chunky yarn so will be great quick knitting! There is a sample of a T-shirt in the shop

New colours of Silk Garden Worsted weight. Always beautiful!

I am expecting another Berroco shipment any day as well as Mission Falls and Manos del Uruguay.....OOOh...The anticipation!

Make sure to visit the shop regularly to see all the selection available!
