The Calm After the Storm
Knitty City reopened yesterday and while we won't attempt to summarize the experience that was Hurricane Sandy, we do wish to state, once again, how proud we are to be a business in New York. We saw many friends and familiar faces and it warmed our collective heart to have them stop by and tell us how they have fared over the past few days. For those who are feeling the effects downtown and in the outlying boroughs and areas, we are thinking of you and we hope to see you soon. Drop us a line via Facebook, if you can, and let us know how you are doing. We are here and we care.
A Few Changes in Schedule
There will be no Curvy Girl Crochet Presentation tthis evening, so please make sure your calendar is cleared if you were planning to attend. We will be rescheduling with Mary Beth Temple as soon as we have more information on her availability.
Maxine's Beginner's Knitting Class on Saturday (1-3P) will be taught by another Knitty City teacher as of this writing. Maxine had a non-storm related mishap which will keep her out of commission for a short while. We'll keep you posted as to when she'll be back.
Yarn of the Month
We are offering a 10% discount all month on any/all Cascade Yarns. Anyone who knits is probably familiar with this line of quality knititng yarns. We are fortunate to stock a wide range of weights, and we heartily recommend you take advantage of this sale to stock up for your Holiday and Winter Projects.
This worsted weight 100% yarn will knit up quickly on a size 7 needle. This is one of 10 luscious colorways just in.
Pop on by to check it out. What a hat, or scarf this would make!

Please join us and meet British Designer, Lucinda Guy.
Many a knitter knows her charming collection of children's pattern books (4 in total) and her successful "Northern Knits" book,which features a range of beautiful scandinavian inspired sweater and accessory patterns. She has followed that up with Northern Knits Gifts, a collection of smaller items and accessories which have the same Scandinavian theme. She's seldom in NY so this may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet her!!!!
