13 Jul Sweet, Sweet Summertime
Summer is here – and it is an amazingly good one for us – and sure busy! My husband and I sold our house in San Antonio and are in the process of renovating the upstairs at the shop for an apartment. YEAH! And oh my, when you move your stuff you realize the girth of your stash…
The renovations upstairs are not the only fun thing happening here in Comfort! Below are a few of the good things happening in the shop, which is the main reason for the newsletter! And there is sure more that I can highlight in one newsletter. So going to focus on just a few items – with the hope of another newsletter sooner rather than later.
I was late getting the word out that we were participating in Olive Knits 4-Day Knitalong again this year. It all fell in the middle of our move, etc. – so I know I am late – but surely not too late. AND honestly, there should not be a rush as we will have several months until we can wear our new sweater anyway!
We have curated a couple of great DK-weight yarns for this occasion. Meadowcroft Dyeworks has a beautiful tweedy Donegal Cottage Tweed that I am in total love with – but I am also in love with the colors that Lone Wolf Fibers created in her Texas grown and dyed wool, Georgia.
Would you like to join me in the fun? Here is my pic from yesterday as I have just now passed the spot where I put the arms on holders… Loving the soft pink – but we have other great colors too – see a few in the pictures below!! Check out our online shop for the Donegal Cottage Tweed from Meadowcroft as well as the Lone Wolf Fiber Georgia. And if you are new to sweater knitting – this is a great one as Olive Knits writes an amazing clear pattern and surrounds it with videos and support!
We are so excited to have the Painted Pony Angel Trunk Show through the end of July. These little needlepoint angels are iconic in the realm of needlepoint, and heavens, there is one for any interest! All of these great angel canvases are 20% off through July, and if we don’t have one in stock that you want, we can order her for you as well and still offer the discount.
We are also delighted to have a Raymond Crawford Trunk Show on it’s way. Anticipate it will be here by the end of the week – but do call before you drive over just to be safe.
Raymond Crawford has whimsical and fun pieces that make you smile – and are so fun to stitch. This trunk show will also be here through the last week of July – so enjoy a 20% discount on these canvases as well!
Fall yarns are soon to arrive and we get new cross stitch patterns in almost daily! We have more trunk shows and events happening too! Ohhh – if only we could create more time – there is so much wonderful stuff to create and do….
Have a wonderful Summer – and let us know how we can help keep those hands moving!
