>3 K Classic Elite Cruise Update


This blog posting is especially for all of those who cruised
with us this past Saturday on the grand ‘ol Mississippi!!…..
First, thank you to each of you for the great feedback.
The overwhelming feedback is ‘great event, looking forward to next year’!
This year’s goodie bags included the yarn to knit the fingerless mitts.
Today I learned that the number of ‘butterflies’ is not adequate to complete the pair of mitts. Please come by the store for additional ‘butterflies’ if you want to complete the project.
It would be great if you called ahead of time and gave us your color info so we could strive to have the ‘butterflies’ ready for you to pick up at your convenience.
Second, approximately $200 was raised for the Lymphoma Leukemia Society
~ Thank you ~

>Harry Potter Sock Yarn is Here!

>We’ve been waiting and waiting, but finally our shipment of Harry Potter sock yarn has arrived! If you haven’t heard, the Opal facility where the yarn was processed/held had a flood earlier in the year, and much of the Harry Potter yarns were damaged. That not only delayed shipment of all orders of the yarn, but it also meant that each store which had ordered the full line was only able to get 4 skeins of each colorway.

We received our order on Monday. I would have let you know earlier that the yarn was here – but I was communing with Mickey Mouse and my son at Disney World. So, now that I’m back, here’s what we have left:

  • 3 skeins of Lupin
  • 3 skeins of Ron
  • 1 skein of Harry
  • 1 skein of Hedwig
  • 3 skeins of Draco
  • 2 skeins of Tonks
  • 3 skeins of Harry & Ron

Unfortunately we are completely sold out of the Dumbledore colorway. To view a slide show of all the Harry Potter sock yarn colorways, go to this Opal link. The cost per skeins is $25.00. We will not be getting another shipment of any of these colors, so if you’re a Harry Potter fan like me, you’d better call soon!
