It's KAL time

We're going to do a store Knit a Long (KAL) again. It's been a long time and we had a lot of fun when we did it in the past. I will have more details in the next few days.

I can tell you
  • it will run until the end of August so you will have lots of time to finish your project
  • we will be featuring one designer and you will be able to pick from their vast pattern library - you might already own the pattern that you are going to make. I have sent an email to the designer to make sure that they are okay with us using their name and patterns for the KAL. Once I hear back I will share.
  • there will be prizes at the end. My suppliers are very generous.
  • we would like you to purchase your yarn from The Needle Emporium but it isn't a requirement
  • if you do purchase yarn from The Needle Emporium you will have more chances to win prizes
  • due to the cost of shipping we can only send prizes within North America

Knit Blockers are back in stock.
A novel and original idea to block knitting projects…….guaranteed to make knitting lives easier!! 
The ease of handling the blockers substantially speeds up blocking on all types of projects 
The design helps maintain even tension across the width of the blocking pinsIdeal working on blocking straight edges like sweaters, shawls and scarvesAnchor holes in each blocker allows the user to attach string along large sections which can be pulled and pinned to maintain consistent tension 
Made using tough plastic with embedded sharp, sturdy & rust resistant stainless steel pins 
Two different sizes to manage different shapes when blocking 
Designed by knitters for knitters
It looks like our tulips are going to bloom soon. These are at home. I can't have tulips at the store because deer really like tulips. And deer really like my garden.

UPS is showing that Uschitita will be delivered tomorrow. I hope they don't disappoint us.
