“How Superheroes Make Money: - Spider-Man knits sweaters. - Superman screw the lids on pickle jars. - Iron Man, as you would suspect, just irons.” ― Jim Benton, Okay, So Maybe I Do Have Superpowers
Dearest yarnbirds and superheroes,
Good grief! Be careful out there. It is hot!
Our advice? Stay inside with the a/c cranked and your knitting or crochet to hand. Better still, escape up the mountain to knit or crochet under the shade of a pine or aspen.
Of course, there is a third option if you have access to a pool. I'm not sure what the folks at the neighborhood park will think if I pull out the Tupperware and knitting, but maybe I'll resort to a paddling pool in the backyard - see below.
Fast forward to July 23rd and we have another option. Join us at the theater at El Con where we have rented a private party room for a pre-movie Barbie the Movie party. We still have a few spots left. We will gather for an hour to knit, crochet, snack and eat Barbie inspired cake, before we proceed on to the movie. Each participant will receive a mini skein of a special dyed for the occasion colorway from Dream in Color and a pattern for an accessory created by Tina and Holly. Find out more below and register while there are still a few spaces.

We love when new yarns or new colorways arrive at the store. Latest to see an expansion of colors is Lano Gatto's VIP. This 80:20 Merino:Cashmere is 219 yards of DK weight yarn is delightfully soft and perfect for next-to-the-skin accessories and garments.
