Store News 
Tonight is our Wine & Cheese with Megan Nodecker of Pip & Pin. This will come out after that event (editing on Saturday night probably).

New yarn: Katia Linen - we carried this a few years ago and loved it. DK weight, 50% Linen/50% cotton. Jane Richmond’s Gemini pattern is made with this yarn.

Katia Merino Aran - blend of 52% wool and 48% acrylic. I made the Julian Vest in it the other week and after machine washing and drying it still looks really great. We have 12 colours in stock at the moment.

New Holst Shipment coming soon. It has arrived in Canada, so I suspect we will get it today or early next week… (it arrived on Friday, colours are online now and will be on the shelf by Tuesday!)

Yarnageddon Update: The staff have gone go ‘Cold Sheep’ as of January 1st. Sara has left the game, but the rest of us are still in.
