Get ready for cooler weather

"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree." 
Emily Bronte



            What new fiber or project will speak to you this fall?  Will it be
October's Mitten  from Kelbourne Woolens Year of the Mittens, our  Let's Keep it Under Wraps Guernsey Wrap KAL ? Maybe you want to jump in on our  Mad Mad Hat-off  or maybe you want to revisit some old favorites like the  Malabrigo Loafers, Better Bucket Hat or Spice and Clove Pumpkins ? Will  Woolfolk's
newest fibers tempt you (make sure to look for the release of their new yarn  Tov  arriving this month), or maybe  Romney Ridge Yarn and Wools Unicorn Candy  sock yarn coming after Rhinebeck,  Magpie Fibers Swanky Sock or Swanky DK, Fiber Company's Road to China Series  or their new  Arranmore ? These are just some of the new fibers we have this fall and don't forget to check back in the weeks to come as we add three more exclusives to our shelves like  O-Wool,  Jocelyn Tunney's environmentally responsible, affordable, humanly produced fiber, made here in the USA. Just in time to coincide with the release of  Casapinka's  new hat pattern in O-Wool Legacy Bulky.

IT'S A MAD MAD HAT-OFF
 October 4th, 2016 to January 28th, 2017

We had such fun this past summer with our Summer Socktacular that a special customer suggested we do something with hats. The seed planted, we set off to create It's a Mad Mad Hat-off to carry you through what this winter has to throw at us. 

Like Socktacular, you will receive a card which will be stamped with each complete hat. Any size hat is eligible. Participants will receive 15% off their hat yarn purchases and the receipt must accompany your card when stamped. 
All cards must be stamped no later than January 28th.


Along with your yarn you will receive an In The Loop small project drawstring bag and a sample bar of Mad Hatter's Apothecary Wool Soap for washing all your woolen projects. 


Knit up to (4) hats and receive a 20% off coupon for your next yarn purchase.

Knit (4) plus hats and you will receive (2) 20% off coupons for your next yarn purchase.

Knit a hat for charity to be donated to the Pine Street Inn and you will receive credit for (2) hats. 
(We will have a donation basket set up for you to drop off your hat)

To celebrate each month of the Mad Mad Hat-off we will be offering a custom kit (already discounted) featuring one special hat complete with yarn and pattern. 
Make sure to check out our special Mad Mat Hat-off Pinterest board chock-full of the best topper ideas!

HEATHER'S HELPFUL HINTS


This month, a guest knitter shared her fabulous hint and photos. Thank you, Sharon D!
A great way to keep track of and use your downloaded pattern e-books: take the pages to the local office supply shop and have them bind it for you. The process is quick, cheap, and allows you to open your book flat.
