...The Yarn Gourmet will be open till 8 PM on Fridays, starting next week, September 10. Several people have asked me about being open late on Fridays, so I will give this a trial period to see if there is enough business for it to make sense. It is possible that I will close at 5 PM on Thursdays if Fridays are more lucrative, or I may be open late both nights - we will see what happens.
Reminder - the Helen Hamann Trunk Show will be here one day only, all day Saturday, September 25. Attendance is free. There will be lots of fabulous garments to try on, lots of yarns, kits and patterns to purchase. I will also have refreshments and door prizes.
Also - check out Ravelry for our Great American Aran Afghan Knit Along! I am delighted to say we have people from Ohio and New Mexico participating in the knit-along. If you want to participate but can't make it to the shop, the Ravelry discussion group is the place to go for updates, tips, tricks, and progress reports.
Knitters rejoice! It is supposed to be much cooler this weekend, with tomorrow's highs being only in the high 60s! Air conditioning is a wonderful invention, but even with AC I can understand how knitters just cannot think about knitting when there are oven-like temperatures outside.
Knit happy (and cooler)! Arv
