Are You a Loyalist, Yet?
Now's the time to get with our program. It's a very simple one -- long on rewards and short on rules and restrictions. You'll receive a "star" for every $20.00 you spend and 10 "stars" will earn you a 20% discount on a purchase. There are a few more rules to know about, but we'll explain it when you come in to get your Loyalty Card. The point is to hurry in, pick up your card and start earning "stars" from us.
Brand New to Knitty City
In addition to these products, we are getting a lot of repeat yarns in - some in new fall colors. Check out Berroco's Borealis (ts10% off all September), Lang's Forte and Rowan's Alpaca Colour for some new color inspiration. Know anyone who's about to add to their family or thinking of adopting a pet?
Here's a fun little yarn you might want to consider for a "welcome" project: Adriafil's KnitCol - a self striping yarn that is now available in a DK weight! Supersoft and superwash, this gem of a yarn has great yardage and a delightful color range.

Interested in Getting Away From It All?
If you're the type that loves a trip and meeting other like minded people, (who doesn't?), we thought you should know about The Round House Knitter's Retreat hosted by Metaphor Yarns. They dropped off some information about a neat little event in Colrain, MA that they are hosting this December!. Go here: www.metaphoryarns.com to find out all about it.
We'll be back later on in the month. In the meantime, be sure not to forget to Enroll in Our Loyalty Program!
