Halloween is upon us and the early evenings find me knitting by the fire at 6 pm.
We just had our 2nd snowfall of the year and did the cold descend quickly!
It always surprises me how quickly I forget
how much I enjoy the comfort of being warm in hand knits.
This has to be my FAVORITE time of year! The projects we all toyed with take a serious step as the cold weather firmly settles into everyone's neighborhood,
and we get motivated to make things for holiday giving.
NEW HOURS are in effect for this month and next.
Countrywool is open 6 days a week and if you make an appointment, on the 7th as well.
The shop is chock full of finished hand knits for you to check out, all with accompanying patterns. AND, our COUNTRYWOOLERS Ravelry group constantly points folks to patterns available free on-line. To help out with your fall project needs, Countrywool is discounting all the remaining LANALOFT WORSTED MONOCHROMATIC yarns to
4 skeins for $20 a 40% discount! (must buy 4)
and all the remaining
BERROCO SOX skeins to
3 skeins for $30 a 30% discount (must buy 3)
We have a new credit card system in place and during the month of November,
if you make a $50 purchase and use your credit card to pay for it,
you'll get a free KNITTER'S TOOLBOX (one per customer).
