One of the many things we love about running a knitting store is the sense of community it gives us. It's always a joy to see how many people take and give great comfort from fiber craft and we're honored to be a part of that effort. We also like to acknowledge the companies, people and special creatures (like our pal in the picture) that go into helping us make that real.
Please join us next Thursday, November 6, from 6:30-8 PM, when we welcome Stacy Charles, one of the owners of Tahki/Stacy Charles, providers of quality yarns. Knitty City has stocked their yarns from the beginning, with great success. Stacy will discuss fall trends and some of the company's newest designs. We look forward to seeing you there.
Report on Yarns @ Knitty City
Boy, are the yarns flying off the shelves these days! You will find lots of great stuff - and we're replenishing as fast as we can. The new "Woolfolk" Yarn is going fast so be sure to ask for it. Another wonderful brand for the Fall and/or gift giving season is Swan's Island'. Their "All American Collection" worsted weight yarns celebrates centuries of American textile tradition with a blend of "home grown" breeds...plus, a new shipment of Freia Ombré Sportweight just came in. Look at these colors:
Plus, you'l find our usual selections of MadelineTosh, Malabrigo and Blue Sky Alpacas Yarns (to name only a few) in stock. But, a word to the wise: If you see it, and like it, grab it! Everyone seems to be knitting these days, so the yarns that are here today may be gone tomorrow.
Magazines/Books @ Knitty City
The new Holiday Vogue Knitting is in the Store and it's a good one!
You'll find the Fall issue, too.

Calling All Crocheters
World Amigurumi Exhibition in NY this December
RESOBOX Gallery, a Japanese cultural center, is planning to hold a “World Amigurumi Exhibition” starting December 12, 2014, and they are looking for 3,000 of the little cuties with which to stock the exhibit. They need a little help and figured we might know smart crochet fans who would be willing to make some. So, come on those of you who love crochet. This is your chance to say, 'My work is on exhibit', and, perhaps, to even sell there. For all details, see: http://resobox.com/amigurumi-artists/

New Team Players!
We have two new people (well,not new to us) who are hellping out at Knitty City. Some of you may remember Ubaldo Feliciano. He's been able to carve out some time over the holidays and will be with us every weekend. Also lending a hand is Devon Guthrie, a Knitty City regular, who has been a big support as the Fall Season heats up. Devon & Ublaldo possess a range of skills, talent, language and knit-wise, which further expand our commitment to customer service. Please welcome them if you get a chance. I'll be posting bios on both in the next newsletter.
Well, that's it (for the moment). Don't forget to come see us soon. It's easy since we're open every day! Also, don't forget to set forward your clocks, one hour, this coming weekend. - Daylight Savings time officially ends at 2 am on Sunday, Nov. 2.
