When you go hiking in the mountains, you need a map, right? One or two steps down the wrong path and you might find yourself in a place you didn’t expect. The same goes with knitting. We use maps (ok, during non-camping times we call them patterns) to insure that we are executing the right stitches on each row. One or two stitches in the wrong direction, and we end up with a project that we don’t recognize. Thank goodness for maps/patterns that lead the way!
This week for a Camp Loopy celebration, we have put all of our single copy patterns up for sale at 20% off. (Pattern books and booklets not included.) There is no limit to the number of patterns you can get, so it would be a good time to stock up. The sale ends Friday night at midnight, Central Time.
Many of you have also already found the new section that we added to the website called, “Last Call“. These are yarn lines that we don’t anticipate getting again soon (if ever) and you can find some very good deals in there. Take a peek and see if there is anything calling your name!
Thanks to all of you who have emailed or messaged me on Ravelry and Facebook to make sure we survived the long 14 hour drive to Colorado. We did! And the cats did so much better than I had anticipated. After the first two hours of complaining, they settled down and slept much of the rest of the day. We have spent the week unpacking, with plenty more to go. But the important things are done. We have beds to sleep in and, even more importantly, the coffee maker is set up and has already been used every morning. Want to come join me for a cup? (But beware – I might make you unpack a box, first. The main floor is getting there, but OH, the basement….)
