Clever Knitters!

I hope your knit and crochet goals for the new year are well underway. No more holiday knitting! And still several months of chilly weather to warrant working on a bulky sweater or afghan.

This Sunday is the Super Bowl, so if you need to get away from football, Clever Knits is the place to be! We Crochet-a-Long EVERY Sunday, and Super Bowl Sunday is no exception.

1. Valentine's Sale!
Sweetheart deals in store on February 14th, and everyone who makes a purchase that day will receive a FREE copy of Helena's Baby Valentine Sweater pattern.

2. New things!
I don't have a yarn problem, I have a yarn solution! Loads of lovely new yarns and delightful new colors. Fiber makes me happy.
  • Cascade Ultra Pima, brand new to the whole wide world, this marvelous 100% pima cotton yarn comes in great-big 100g/220yd hanks and is very affordably priced. It has a great hand, and is lovely to work with (even wool-snobs love working with it).
  • Cascade Cloud 9, new to us, this 50/50 Merino/Angora blend is positively decadent and absurdly affordable.
  • Cascade 220 in how many new colors? I'm not sure I can count them!
  • Cascade 220 Superwash Paints in just a few colors.
  • Trekking XXL a dreamy sock yarn in delicious new colors for spring
  • Berroco Sox in new spring colors too
  • Lantern Moon Silk Bags in the larger size, great for medium-sized projects
  • Lantern Moon Baskets back in stock (but not for long!)
  • Blocking Wires for stretching lace shawls to their full potential
  • Eucalan wool wash, 4 scents in 2 sizes
  • Wire Sock Blockers with a built-in hanger, these are brand-new to the world and might be my new favourite thing
  • So many books I can't even count them all. Come take a peek.
  • Fiber Trends patterns, a yummy selection of cute things to knit and felt
  • Churchmouse Patterns, an equally yummy selection of beautiful things, extremely well-written, simple patterns

3. Social Knitting/Crochet Events
These events are social groups. No instruction is provided during these times -- they are just an opportunity to hang out with like-minded individuals, celebrating and practicing the fiber arts. Information on classes can be found on our website by clicking the 'classes' link at the top of the page. ALL our events, including classes, can be seen on our Google Calendar.
