Hot Hot Hot!!

Your Company




You know what?

I could not figure out why we were so busy yesterday and it was such a beautiful day.
I got to work at about 9:30 and expected a fairly quiet day.
And then I stepped outside at about 2:30.


YIKES!


Now I get it. Y'all were coming in out of the heat "chillin'".
Listen, I don't blame ya.
This heat is killin' me. And yes. It's cool in the shop all day. 
So feel free to come sit & knit & chit & chat.
The water cooler is full.

 




Do you want to step up your crochet?  This Saturday, August 1st at 10:30am take your crochet to the next level with Terri Keller. 
Learn to inc/dec, read patterns/charts and finishing.
$30.00- sign up with a friend, each pay $25.00




Remember, the Wonderful Wallaby Knit Along is everything Thursday (on our big comfy couches) from noon - 4pm.
The best part is that our KAL is absolutely **free**.
We're there to knit together, have fun and make it through the rough spots.

Simply gorgeous. Come check out the samples in the shop! 





Thanks to all who attended the Tacoma Rainiers 1st Stich n Pitch! That was a blast.

And I'd like to send a
very special thank you to Kristeen Griffin-Grimes (French Girl Knits) and her husband Phil.
They are truly a class act. Oh! And her patterns and new book are to die for!
I think her hand almost fell off from autographing so many. :-)
We look forward to having Kristeen come to YY to teach her incredible workshops.
And I'm hearing rumors about a French Riviera knitting tour for next year. Hmmmm...



Stay tuned!


 


That's all from me for now. Stay cool people!
