Needles and Project Bags

The Karbonz knitting needles continue to be popular. Restocks went up today. There were advance orders for interchangeable sets so I got one for the shop. Needles are sizes 2 to 6. Additional size tips can be ordered. Our supplier is attentive and ships all in-stock items immediately.

The Hag Bag collection is expanding at Main Street Yarn. These lovely bags in sizes medium and large will go into the shop later this week. The colors are outstanding!

Knit in Public Fun Fun Fun!! And new merchandise, too...

Worldwide Knit in Public Day (actually week) began yesterday and Main Street Yarn and its following were not to be let out. The overcast skies cleared in time for a free workshop to teach the Sweet Tomato Heel for a sock. Folding chairs came out on trunks, hatches and backseats of vehicles and participants had a great time.

Look how nice this heel turned out! I was handling the indoor duties at the book shop and yarn shop so now I need to get some instruction on this fabulous heel that all just raved about!

Congratulations to Cathy who won a lovely door prize donated by Universal Yarn Company.

In other news: New yarns and bags went on sale this past week and to say some of them "ran out of the shop" is not an exaggeration. Just look at the goodies...and, yes, many remain for others to purchase.

Rich colorways from Desert Vista Yarnworks! Knitters thought it was difficult to select which one (or ones) to purchase. Ha! The toughest part was deciding which colorways to select for the shop.

The Hag Bag collection made its way to the shop. Sorry the photo is blurry..I took it with my phone. The seamstress is another woman-owned small business. I am pleased to say that she joins company with Wandering Wool and Desert Vista Yarnworks. As a small woman-owned business I am proud to support others. Working together is the root of success for each of us. And thank you to those who support Main Street Yarn because you are supporting all of our efforts. We are dedicated to our fiber adventures!
