I am happy to report that our ornament situation is improving daily. Several people jumped right in and we have new ornaments with more expected very shortly. I will begin decorating the tree on Thursday, November 14th so be sure to get your ornaments to me this week.
Tomorrow (Monday) is the last day to turn in ornaments at MIFA. You can also catch me at the Memphis Knit Mafia on Tuesday night at Cafe Eclectic* and the Memphis SnB on Thursday evening at Davis-Kidd Booksellers**. If none of this works for you, e-mail me asap and we’ll work something out.
Take a look at what we have so far. This group was turned in at the Love Cap Party. Aren’t those tiny yarn baskets amazing?
Christiana made these festive balls out of her extensive scrap yarn collection. I really like the one with the ends on the outside.
We also have gorgeous thread crochet snowflakes from Lynda, sparkly snowflakes from Gwen and an impeccably embroidered stocking by Susan.
And finally some yarn balls and knitting needles for a little added color.
I’ll post more pictures as the ornaments come in.
YARN SALES THIS WEEK
The Michael’s ad did not make it into my paper this week, but they have a major yarn sale going on! Check it out here
Hobby Lobby has a new line of yarn called “I Love This Yarn”. It is acrylic and comes in very nice colors. The worsted is at everyday low price and sport weight is on sale this week along with “I Love This Cotton” and “I Love This Wool”. I have not used this yarn, but have handled it and found that the acrylic is softer on the skein than Red Heart. Another shopper in the yarn aisle was loading a cart full of worsted acrylic and said it was her favorite.
Hancock Fabrics has all Lion Brand Yarn marked down 20% through November 22.
There is still no word about the date for the opening of the new Joann’s Fabric and Craft Superstore on Winchester at Bill Morris Parkway. If anyone knows anything, please report!
