The Dog Days of Summer are Upon Us
However, we are staying cool, calm and collected as we look forward to the fall seson and some of the yarns that we know are comng - some, in fact, are here already. Come on by and check them out, along with all the new magazines and books that have started to come in for fall. While you're here, be sure to also check out our sale table - it's grown much smaller but it's stil 40% off and the cotton colors are perfect for late summer knitting. Talking "Dog Days", please be sure to keep an eye out for our August Windows. We are featuring our favorite Knitty City pets. If you have an interesting or fun picture of your best animal friend, please send it to email@example.com. You just might see your favorite animal pal in our front window, or up on our Facebook Page, or, at the very least, right here on our blog!
