Fandango Fun

                                            NEEDLE NOOK

Here is some summer fun for you to knit.  I call these Fandango and we have three versions:  a cowlette, scarf and shawl.  This project is very quick as it is knit on a size 19 needle.  It is achieved by tying bits and pieces of yarn (leftovers, stash, new) together and letting the ends dangle and show.  It's all garter stitch.  You can adjust the size to suit your needs.  We have bins of yarn you can choose from and wind a ball right in the shop, or you can bring in some stash from home and add to it.  The charge is $4.50 per ounce for DIY and $8.50 per ounce if we help.  A free pattern is included in the price.  Why not come by and try on our models to see if you would like one? 

Another announcement is that we plan to host Knit In Public Day at the Red Pepper Taqueria in our shopping center.  The event will be held on June 9th from 11AM to 3PM.  There will be door prizes and special discounts at Needle Nook those 4 hours.  Join us for this annual knit-in love fest.  The restaurant has offered at 10% discount on food and drink too.
