July Newsletter

Posted by Marianne Graves on

Happy July 2018!

Happy July to you! We will be closed on July 4th! We hope yours is safe and wonderful!

Now that 2018 is half over, I am doubling down on my list making. I always get excited about Christmas knitting and this year is no exception. The heat serves as the perfect excuse to sit down with a cold beverage and line up who has been naughty and who has been nice. I enjoy thinking of loved ones far in advance of gift giving as I plan my to-knit-list. What’s on your list? We have lots of ideas and new yarns arriving weekly. The clock is ticking. See you soon!!

Easy with Judy  

This delightful little pattern is quick, clever and EASY.  Garter stitch (no purls) makes up this fun little knit.
