With the summer heat upon us, looking for relief takes the form of jumping in the pool or sitting with a cool drink waiting for a breeze. The summer is a PERFECT time to concentrate on small lap projects to knit AND to spend time whirling that spinning wheel as well as playing with cool cotton fabric as you quilt.  This summer there are numerous opportunities for you to take a class here at Countrywool to get yourself going.  Check them out

Knitting and spinning groups in Columbia County are getting organized on FACEBOOK's Hudson NY Knitting and Fiber Circles group page. I have enjoyed getting to know a few new folks, and some old friends, while knitting (and chatting) away. Right now I am finding time to be in town on Wednesdays and Thursdays til the end of the summer. These groups are VERY welcoming, so feel free to come and sit for a spell!

If you love free patterns and quick knit ideas, you will find Countrywool's daily post on Facebook very useful.
Watch for a SALE announcement there the week of July 4th.

(those of you who have avoided going there out of fear of having to join...just don't.
You'll be able to view every pattern without signing up)

New colors and new yarns are arriving weekly at the shop. We've just bumped up inventory for MINI MOCHI and ULTRA ALPACA FINE (the NICEST sock yarn!) both of which will be featured at the Rip Van Winkle SOCK KNITTING RETREAT in November. Did you miss Cascade FIXATION? It will be back in stock after hunting high and low for a better machine wash and dry baby yarn that I just couldn't find.  In 2 weeks the new order for that fabulous cotton-that-knits-like-wool will be on the shelves.
See what's in stock right now.

Yarn companies are upping their prices in July.
Watch for a SUMMER SALE soon!

And remember...there is always free shipping on all orders over $50!
