Zoe, the adorable knitter!

Young knitters simply make us smile and when you see one finishing a neck warmer for her grandmother, then trying it on for a photo, you just have to post about it!  Nice knitting, Zoe!!

Newest Knitting Group

Don't you love seeing newbie knitters?  Their excitement is contagious!  They gingerly touch the fibers, they pet and squeeze, and they oooohhh and ahhhhh over the yarns.  And with our experience and love of fiber, we know what they are in for and how much fun they'll have!  Aaahhhh, it warms my heart!!

I enjoyed meeting this group.  You guys are in very capable teaching hands.  Look forward to seeing you, and your projects, soon.
Happy Knitting!

Sweet Knitter from Sugar Loaf

Met a fabulous lady visiting from Sugar Loaf, NY.  Have never heard of this town but think it's the cutest sounding town ever.  And from the way she described it, it is a special place....a cute, artistic, beautiful town. (see link here).  I should remember her name but I'm terrible with new names. Dang, sorry about that!  

So she's in for some Ozark yarn and has a cute hat pattern in mind, but we are currently out of stock in Ozark. Viola....an idea came to her after perusing the shop. A clever idea of creating her own funky-farm yarn!  See the jar of hand dyed curly locks and the hand-spun?

She promised to send us a photo!! Or maybe we should go visit Sugar Loaf.  ;)

Name that Yarn! And the winner is...

Twizzle Pop
Our winner is atwoodph!
I'm not sure who this is exactly....will you let us know your identity? :)

I'll have to say, we have some very creative customers! Shall we all quit our day jobs, dye yarn and have fun creating cute and clever names for the yarn??  I promised to announce a winner on the 1st but had such a hard time choosing a winner that I needed help.  I solicited input from Zach, Melissa, Steve and Margie.  They each randomly picked their favorite 3 and emailed them to me. I complied the list of finalists and chose the winning name:  Twizzle Pop!

Many picked yummy dessert names, others went with party themes like Confetti, Spring Fling & Mardi Gras (wheee....throw those beads!), still others went the way of the spring garden like Peony and Impatient for Impatiens (clever and me, too!).  Really nice names!!  Now I'm eager to have another cool yarn, hand dyed exclusively for Knit Picky because I have no doubt you'll come up with another fabulous name!!

So...our winner, atwoodph, receives a FREE skein of Knit Picky Twizzle Pop! And the runners up will each get 20% off their purchase of KPTP (cute acronym, too)!

Runner's Up:
psychedelic daisy 
groovy juice 
psychedelic twizzle 

BTW...spell check does not like the word "Twizzle" but I do, don't you??!!  Please come in soon to pick up your yarn, these are one of a kind and once they are gone, they're gone. This was FUN....thanks for participating! Happy Weekend!
