September Wrapup

Our anniversary party was a huge success! Thank you all for coming to support the
shop. The yarn bombing also turned out great. Stop by to see your handiwork on our
The yarn bombing has created a mystery that we really want to solve, though. This
beautiful crochet flower turned up, and we have no idea who donated it! If this 
is your work please let us know so we can thank you properly! 
If you enjoyed this yarn bombing, we have another one coming up! Downtown Urbana
will be celebrating trees on Saturday, October 13. Donate your old, unloved handknit
sweaters to help us decorate Klose Knit's trees. With your help we will really be
able to put something special together! 
Brigitte has just finished her sample of the lovely Firefly Shrug. You can get this
pattern for free when you buy two skeins of Pashm by Kate Wright Designs. This is
the most wonderful, squishy, soft and bouncy yarn we've come across yet, and it 
comes in amazing colorways to boot! Come check out our sample and the yarn, you 
won't be sorry you did. 

We have beautiful new samples from the Little Book of Little Sweaters. If you like
the look of these sweaters, sized for American Girl or other 18" dolls, come sign
up for one of the classes! There are patterns for all skill levels, including knitters
who have never made a sweater before. 
If you'd rather knit a sweater for a teddy bear than a doll, you're in luck - Brigitte
has just finished a new Teddy Bear Sweater pattern, which you can get free at the
shop! We even have bears for sale! Buy one of these sweet teddies and dress him 
in lovely sweaters made from your leftover yarns in any color you like. 
Come see our newest amazing yarn: Beaded Silk Sequins Light by Artyarns. It's silk
with tiny sequins and Murano glass beads. The sparkle on this yarn is incredible!
And it comes in many different shades, sure to appeal to anyone who likes a little
glamor in their knitting. 

We look forward to seeing you in the shop soon! Don't forget to check out the new
Malabrigo! Until then, happy knitting!
