It is so hard to believe, but we have been exploding for five years now! And everyday, we are so thankful for the wonderful stitching community we have that enjoys shopping, taking classes, and just hanging out with us. We all have such fun sharing our passion for knitting and needlepointing with lovely yarns, threads, and canvases, even if we don’t get enough time to stitch ourselves.
For our birthday month of October, we are highlighting yarns and threads that we purchased for our Opening, continue to believe in, and promote for quality projects. This includes almost 30 yarns and 10 needlepoint threads ! Come remind yourself of some of our favorites and take advantage of in-stock quantities being discounted 20%. Pattern books for these yarns will also be discounted.
New orders from our Trade Show shopping trip continue to arrive. Artyarns has a new silk/cashmere blend called ‘Ensemble 4’ you will want to bury yourself in! Tahki Stacy Charles had three new yarns we found fascinating, Aria, Natalia, and Kismet, all with great patterns and colors. One of the new yarns from Classic Elite has arrived, Chalet, which will be great for winter accessories. Exciting new colors and patterns of favorite yarns and new needlepoint canvases continue to arrive also.
All of us worker bees at Yarn Explosion have done a knit-along project based on our Sweater Wizard computer program. We decided to knit vests, each of us choosing our own yarn, gauge, and style. Three of the vests are completed and on display. We have enjoyed the process of designing a unique vest and seeing different ways to be creative with a basic design. We will be happy to work with you and design a project based on your favorite yarn.
