The Tropical Yarn Crawl was a great time!
More events to be announced soon.



FRI, Jan. 27th - SAT, Feb. 4th

What is the Tropical Yarn Crawl?
During this 9-day event, the 8 participating Florida-based local yarn shops (LYS) from Vero Beach to Miami will feature trunk shows, yarn tastings, book signings, and other demonstrations of interest to knitters, crocheters, and weavers. Plus, their stores will be fully stocked of squishy yarn, of course, too.
The point of a yarn crawl is for fiber enthusiasts to hop from shop to shop to see what makes each one special! In addition to the special activities, each shop will feature their own surprise Giveaway basket that any participant who stops by can win. More details about the prizes below.

PASSPORT & PRIZES:
The passport is a free downloadable PDF that acts as your ticket to winning the Grand Prize. You can print from your home printer and take to your first stop on the crawl, or pick one up at participating shops in person during the crawl. Each shop will stamp your passport when you arrive, and you can turn in your completed passport at any participating shop. The passport lists the participating shops, addresses and phone numbers, too for handy reference. The winner for the Grand Prize of the Tropical Yarn Crawl will be chosen from the turned-in passports of participants who completed all 8 stops on the crawl! Visit the yarn crawl website to download your passport. http://www.tropicalyarncrawl.com/

Charity Knit & Sip
Please join us Thursday evenings for our "Knit & Sip" socials.  
This season we will be focusing these weekly gatherings on using our crafts to make goods to give our to Local Charities.

Big or small, blankets, sweaters, socks, hats, scarves, mitts, whatever you'd like to make - there is always a need for more.  

Bye the way, you might want to get out some of your UFOs (yes we all have them - those neglected unfinished projects) and lets finally finish and donate them - how rewarding would that be!

For so many of us, we knit or crochet for the relaxation of it and the reward we get personally from just "creating".  

For those who can't attend the weekly evening socials, please know that we will be collecting your donated projects anytime.  
Just drop them off at the store - we'll find a good home for them.

We will announce in our newsletter emails what items have been collected and which charity we have given to during that period.

I hope you will join us in making this our biggest charity giving season yet.





"Yarn Bombing"

*Royale Raffle! - Congratulations to Eileen J. on winning one of the brand new Special Edition Knitters Pride Royale Interchangeable Circular Needle Sets! She was so elated when her ticket was drawn and we got a cute photo of it!

It took a bit of wrangling, but we managed to get a group shot in.
Sorry that it was taken after so many had already departed for the evening :(


Happy Birthday Ellen & Anne!


Eileen and Marylin winning their raffle prizes. We just love how elated she was when her ticket was pulled. So cute!

Deborah's Shoulder Surgery Status Report
As many of you already know, Deborah had rotator cuff surgery a month ago and is going through the painful physical therapy process. Deborah's doctor and physical therapist are very happy with the results and her progress and she is looking forward to a speedy and complete recovery. Deborah is not sure exactly when she'll be able to return to work (although at the shop occasionally) but everyone on our staff is doing a wonderful job of helping to fill in for her at the shop. A big thank you to our wonderful team!

Deborah would like to thank everyone for all of your kind well wishes and support. Our Knitters Nook customers, staff & friends are the sweetest. Thanks for being such a wonderful group of people.




Cascade Yarn Tasting Event
What a fun day we had yesterday (11/2) during our Cascade Yarn Tasting! Only had time to snap a few photos since we were busy from start to finish. Tons of fiber love, a whole bunch of fabulous prizes given out, a huge spread of yummy snacks and a great time with lots of great customers and friends. A special thank you to Mike for bringing all of his wonderful goodies from Cascade Yarns!
We are looking forward to another great Cascade Yarn Tasting in January filled with an even bigger selection and more new yarns just coming out for spring! There will be a few differences to that event with more surprises too!


Instead of having everyone sit in front of the yarns, as done previously, we kept the ease of traffic flow going all around all of the great yarns displayed by having plenty of seating elsewhere around the shop. All of our yarn tasters enjoyed the comfort of knitting or crocheting on these yarns while sitting either in the lounge, classroom or at the table on the floor without having to reach over anyone to peruse the selection.

Marilyn and Karen were just a couple of the many happy door prize winners!
