June Knit-a-long

We hope all of you will join us in the Classic Elite KAL this summer. The main rules are: you must use at least 3 skeins of a Classic Elite yarn along with a pattern from their spring collection books.

This month we are working on the Diagonal Bella Lino Scarf, the Deryn Shawl knitted in Sandpiper, and the Emerald tunic crocheted in Firefly. Come by soon to sign up and get started ~ as usual for KAL projects, you will receive 10% off your yarn and pattern.

June Sit & Stitch

Sit & Stitch Wednesdays: 
June 3rd and 17th 
(5pm - 8pm) 

For anyone not familiar with what goes on at Sit & Stitch ~ here's the scoop: Join us for a couple of hours of knit and/or crochet time with your Yarn Nook friends. It is a great time to share ideas and show off finished projects.

Shop Hop

This summer, we are participating in a Yarn Crawl - called THE DEEP SOUTH SHOP HOP. If you would like to participate in this fun voyage though four of the South's premier yarn shops, please pick up your "Passport" at Yarn Nook soon. If you succeed in visiting all five stores and have your passport stamped at each one, your name will be entered in the Shop Hop drawing. The grand prize is a set of Addi Turbo Knitting Needles and we will also give away a basket full of goodies that have been donated from each shop (valued at $150).

The Yarn Crawl will take place June 26th thru July 11th. Participating stores are Yarn Nook, Knits by Nana, The French Knot, McNeedles, and the Quarter Stitch. Our shop will have special offers for those participating.

Knit In Public

On Saturday, June 13th, World-wide Knit In Public Day, we will meet at CC's Coffeehouse in River Ranch from 2pm to 4pm for some fiber fun. We hope you will join us and encourage your friends and family to do so as well. This will be a great opportunity for the Yarn Nookers to get together and share our knitting love with the public. Please come by and bring a project or two to work on!
