Holiday Countdown at Knitty City

 

 

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or some other Winter Solstice Holiday, we're here for you and your Holiday needs.  Just in this week, take a look at these incredible yarns and books.  

Let's start with these from Pagewood Farm, eiither one of which would make the MOST perfect unique yarn for yourself or the knitter you love: 

 

Plumes                                                   Ringlets

 

Pagewood Farms is known for it's unique blend of color and materials within the yarn.  We're proud to be one of their retailers and hope you consider this unique and charming yarn for a holiday gift - whether it's to yourself or to someone you love. 

While you're in the store, also be sure to take a look at the new yarns from Prism "Wild Stuff":

 

 

Wild Stuff

This stuff is a bit pricey,  but one skein makes the most incredible (and unique) gift imaginable.  Also in the store this week is the newest book (the second one) from Koigu.  For those of us who lovethe yarn, and who among us doesn't, take a look at this new book of patterns from Koigu:

 

Koigu Magazine #2

This beautifully priced book is chock-a-block full of unique designs from a splendid cast of creative souls who love Koigu and like to share their passion.  Consider this new "book" and an accompanying selection of Koigu yarns whether buying for a loved one or indulging yourself.

Some great book ideas: 

Connie Chang Chinchio newest Book:  'Textured Stitches" is guaranteed to thrill anyone on your list who likes working with fine weight yars:  Take a look, here, and see why we're proud to recommend it:

TEXTURED STITCHES

 

Another whole hearted recommendation is for Tanis Gray's new "Knit Local" a collection of patterns and yarns from the domestic American knitting scene:

KNIT LOCAL

For the true knitting fiends among us, you might consider Mary Jane Mucklestone's newest:  200 Fair Isle Motifs.  Look here:

200 FAIR ISLE MOTIFS

 

A personal favorite - must be something to do with  Scandinavian knitting influence - is this one from Annemor Sundbo, the woman who, almost single-handedly, rescued some of the most vernerable and beloved Norwegian patterns from the rag pile and repurposed them in this wonderful book:

 

Norwegian Mittens & Gloves

Any one of these books would be a prized treasure - either under the tree or strategically placed on the mantle or under the appropriate Holiday ornament.  

 

Don't forget:  From now on, Knitty City is open 7 days a week.  Also, do be sure and ask about our Yarns of the Month the next time you're in the store.  All YOM's are 10% off.

 

We'll be back before the final days, but in the meantime, please remember to take it easy, slow down and enjoy this beautiful time of year in good health and with the knowledge that you're a prized member of our community!

 

Happy Holiday from Pearl and the Staff at Knitty City!
