Kalidascope is in!

Blue Ridge Yarns has a really beautiful sock yarn called Kalidescope and Northampton Wools has some in. I just unpacked a box of this scrumptious yarn and it is now hanging on our sock wall.
These colors are deep and rich and will make you happy.

It is soon going to be my birthday-- a big one I'm afraid. I have gotten a great present from my son and daughter-in-law. I will be leaving on Monday for a week in Ca with them and little Ava. How can there4 be a better gift to a grandmother. I will be back in the store on August 8, so we will see you then. I will have plenty of pictures and I will certainly be relaxed and ready to work like mad getting the store ready for a fun and fabulous fall.
Keep those needles clicking.

A Special weekend coming up...

This week end  marks the start of sidewalk sales in downtown Northampton. Every year at this time all the stores in town take it to the streets with deals on their merchandise that you won't want to miss.
Northampton Wools will participate this year on the corner of Armory and Pleasant. For the first time we will have a lot of room to display and set up the bargains on yarn and sweaters.
I am spending the first half of this week getting ready.. designing several unique, quick and simple hats and fingerless mitt patterns that I am putting into kit form with the yarn needed to make it. Let your summer knitting be easy and when fall and winter arrive you will have the right accessory ready for the cold, windy weather. Here is a sneak peek at one of the hat kits that will be on sale.
