Dear Friends,

The Knitting Temptations staff is hard at work to deliver the best of our shop to you! Although the size of our shop is shrinking, our imaginations continue to flourish!

Casapinka’s latest venture, “ The Sharon Show" Summer MKAL, created the opportunity for us to play with colors! We had a great time! In our ecommerce shop you will find more than 25 kits we have assembled. My thanks to Barb, Becky, Beth, Deb, Linda, Jen and Kristen for all their ideas and work putting this project together.

We want to remind you of projects you saw previously in Tempting Tidbits. Today, you will find the “Darn Knit Stripe It” cowl included in this newsletter. It is a quick knit and uses just one skein of the magically striping Uneek Worsted. It is such fun to watch the colors evolve. We will continue to include more gifting projects. In addition to our many “tried and true” projects, we are testing patterns and yarns to share with you over the coming weeks.

In closing, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you for all the dear notes, emails, texts and in-person messages that I have received over the past weeks. You make this transition much easier. I am truly blessed to have your support.

We are so excited to tell you about Casapinka’s new Mystery Knit Along! Over the years, Casapinka has treated us with interesting, unique patterns that keep knitters engaged in their creative work. Just as her designs intrigue the knitter, she includes indie dyers and local yarn shops into her work.

For this summer’s MKAL, The Sharon Show , Casapinka presents a new pattern which is sure to “take us away” – a respite from oppressing heat and some of the uncertainties and challenges in our lives today.

Knitting Temptations is proud to join in this effort! One of our favorite dyers, Mira, of Baah Yarns, created more stunning colors in La Jolla, the perfect fingering weight yarn for The Sharon Show . The Knitting Temptations staff has been having great fun putting together kits with colors that are sure to work beautifully together. The kits are all one-of-a-kind and include an incredible array of color options. If you have a favorite skein of fingering weight yarn in your stash, bring it into the shop and we’ll help you put together your own unique kit.

The Sharon Show MKAL begins on August 7 and continues for six weeks. Of course, this pattern will be available and you may join the fun at any time after August 7.

Here are the details:
  • Four skeins of fingering weight yarn (370—400 yards each).

We still have a wonderful selection of beautiful yarns! Baah Yarns and June Cashmere are excluded.

The needles come in numerous lengths. You can select the length that is comfortable in your hand. They are guaranteed for your lifetime. These needles are constructed from high quality aluminum for long lasting durability.
