For all of you knitters not in the know, summer is the season for knitting!! That's right, you heard it here first. Put away your UFO sweaters, skirts and scarves and CO some socks, toys and shawls. For those looking for some ideas, be sure to check out ravelry. As, you might want to join us for the PSKC FIRST ever knit-a-long (KAL).
For our first KAL, we are knitting the famous Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Sweater. At least 12 knitter have taken the plunge. Won't you join us? It's not too late to join. And to that end, I will post some general tips on the group's message boards.
Next up, because I love you all so much and because I can't think of anything better to do on a Thursday night than hang out with a great group of people like yourselves, I am adding a new meet-up for this coming Thursday. Let the good times roll. And for the entire summer (barring inclement weather) we will be outside, in the spacious and beautiful backyard of the Sweet Melissa Patisserie.
Also, on tap, this Saturday is (World Wide Knit In Public) WWKIP day. Its our hope to gather members from all the knitting groups in Brooklyn, meet in front of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, make a complete spectacle and convert some muggles into knitters. So, please show up and be prepared to teach some people how to knit (i.e.: extra needles, yarn and a smile=) ).
Finally, being the enabler that I am, I'm announcing that my two favorite yarn stores are having a yarn sale for the month of June:
The Yarn Tree in Brooklyn
All items will be 15% off (sorry - but looms and wheels are not included). The sale is not up on the website yet - so if you'd like to beat the rush, come in this weekend, or call and mention the sale or order online and write sale in the message section and we will adjust the charges. The sale will run June 7th through June 29th.
The Point Cafe
From now to Labor Day play the "Point Temperature Lottery" For every day the predicted temperature high* is: over 90 degrees (maybe this weekend?) = 10% off all yarn over 95 degrees = 15% off all yarn over 100 degrees = you win the temperature lottery: 20% off all yarn!!!!!THIS IS FOR THOSE IN THE KNOW . . . DON'T FORGET TO ASK THE ALL IMPORTANT QUESTION AT CHECK OUT - "WHAT'S MY TEMPERATURE DISCOUNT?
In addition, the more you spend, the more chances you have to win fabulous prizes!!!!
All summer long, for every purchase over $50 you can fill out a lottery ticket. The drawing will be held after Labor Day. Stay tuned for more details.
