Wow, it’s kind of hard to believe that another year has passed and it’s our birthday again.  Six years ago, we opened our doors, not knowing just what to expect and we have been overwhelmed by your love and support ever since.  Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your lives – without you, we would never have gotten to this milestone (and I would never have been able to use the picture on the left – hey, it was one of my favorite books as a child!), so thank you!

How are we going to celebrate?  How do we always celebrate?  With a HUGE sale, of course!  Yup, this weekend (Saturday 3/13 and Sunday 3/14) the entire store will be 20% off!  Yarn, needles, notions, books, bags, magazines – all 20% off! There will even be a few lines that will be marked down even further – we’ve got to make way for all the spring yarn somehow, right?  We’ll also be giving away special prizes to two lucky people over the weekend, so be sure to make sure your name is in our database!

As usual, we will be marking Insatiable Knitter Cards for all purchases, but we won’t be redeeming them.  The sale prices are good on purchases made in store only, not on special orders or phone orders.

Rachelle and I will be here from 10:30 – 7 on Saturday and Tiara and I will be here from 12 -5 on Sunday; it’s looking like it’s going to be a gloomy, rainy weekend, so why not liven it up with some fun times at the yarn shop?  🙂


We’re not letting a bit of snow get us down! We’re here and it’s warm and dry inside. We’ve got tons of new books for you to peruse and a lot of new yarn for you to cuddle. (Hey, it’s Dream In Color and Schaefer, I don’t blame anyone for cuddling it… sooooo soft!)

Rachelle and I are here, so come on down – bring your projects while you’re at it. We’re open our normal hours today: 10:30-7. If anything should change we’ll post it here, on our Twitter feed, and on our Facebook page. (Wait, you’re not following us on Twitter and Facebook? I’ll wait here for you to go click on those. Heh.) Right now, I can say that as long as it’s safe for everyone outside, I’ll be here.

Yup, the first week of the year marks the beginning of a new year for us in more ways than one. Like every year, we will be closed this week to do our annual inventory. We will reopen on Saturday, 1/9/10 at 10:30am. We look forward to seeing you then!

We will not be open today, 12/20. (It’s going to take me all day to dig my car out from all that snow – by the time that gets done, it’ll be time to close. Boo.)

However, we WILL be open tomorrow, 12/21 for all your last minute Christmas needs. (Yes, I know, a Monday!)
Thanks for your understanding. Remember to be safe out there!

Yes, it’s snowy out, but it’s just not safe to drive in to the shop, so we are closed today. Everyone, please stay home and safe today. It’s a perfect day to make yourself a cup of cocoa or tea, pick up that project that’s been neglected and knit (or crochet).

As for tomorrow, I’m playing it by ear. It looks like the snow should stop for tomorrow, so I’ll look at it in the morning.
Enjoy the snow day!

I guess it is that time of year again – Thanksgiving. For me, it’s the official start to the holiday season despite what the stores say. (Many of you have heard me rant about this over the years, but for me – personally – the holiday season doesn’t officially start until Santa rides his sleigh into Herald Square at noon on Thanksgiving, but I digress.)

With Thanksgiving in just a few short days, I should tell you about the week’s hours here at the shop, huh? 🙂 This week we will be open:
Tuesday, 11/24 – 10:30am-7pm
Wednesday, 11/25 – 10:30am-4pm*
Thursday, 11/26 – Closed for Thanksgiving
Friday, 11/27 – 10:30am-7pm
Saturday, 11/28 – 10:30am-7pm
Sunday, 11/29 – 12pm-5pm
* Wednesday is usually our Late night and we will be closing early to allow Jill, Rachelle, and I to spend as much time with our families over Thanksgiving as possible. We will see you on Friday!
