Anzula, Anzula, Anzula

I am actually VERY excited about Yarns Sold and Told receiving a notebook! Anzula has provided us with sample colors of Cricket, Nebula, and For Better or Worsted. However, these colors would be available in all of Anzula fibers and different yarns. We can place special orders for any Anzula yarns and special orders are moved to the top of their dye list. Yarns has Wash My Lace and Nebula in beautiful colors available at the shop now but if you do not see a color you like, we will be happy to order it.

Drop by and see these yarns for yourself

Perfection . . . Not so much

“Created with perfect intentions by imperfect hands” is a new quote I just found. I love it! Fits me to a “T”!

I keep an ongoing list of projects that I am making or want to make for this family as well as a few for myself. Actually, there are very few projects that I DON’T want to make for myself and my family. I look at every skein and hank of yarn at Yarns Sold and Told and every pattern and I want it all! Every time Marilyn and Jane order in new yarn, I want it. Every time Marilyn or Connie Jo make a new model to display at this store, I want it.

While I usually do finish each of these projects on my list. I have noticed that these treasures are not as perfect as other knitters create. But, you know what, that is okay because my family realizes that anything I make is done with 100% love with perfect intentions!

Enchantment shawl

All of us at Yarns Sold and Told have been admiring Connie Jo’s Enchantment Shawl knitted with Cock-O-Dye yarn and Kettle Tweed yarn from Knit One, Crochet Too. To say this yarn is gorgeous just does not do it justice. We have put together kits of these two wonderful yarns and the pattern. Stop by and see this Enchantment Shawl that Connie Jo made and see these beautiful kits.

Also, just wanted you to know that all Addi needles are now 20% off at Yarns Sold and Told.

Can Knit – Can’t Text

I saw the perfect quote on Pinterest just now that absolutely, positively fits me to a “T”.

“I can knit an intricate multi-colored sweater . . . can’t text!”

As the young adults in my life will tell you, I absolutely, positively hate to text. My son, Abraham, absolutely, positively forced me to learn how to text in the first place. I do not understand my phone and have no interest in understanding my cell phone and I don’t even have a Smart Phone!

Now, show me a knitting project, complicated or simple, and there are no lengths I won’t go to try to figure it out. I will work on it for hours alone, (ripping it out, over and over again), I will take a knitting class, I will go to Yarns Sold and Told for help on the knitting project and I will even join a Knit-A-Long to learn the skill. Just absolutely, positively don’t ask me to text anyone about it!

Painted Desert Yarn

I dropped by Yarns Sold and Told on Tuesday and choose one of the gorgeous colors of Painted Desert yarn by Knitting Fever. I started the lace shawl project that has been highlighted by YARNS during our Christmas in July Celebration and I already love this pattern. While it is a project that does not require deep concentration, it has enough interest to keep me from getting bored. Plus the yarn is absolutely wonderful. What more could I want???

Don’t forget that this Saturday is Party Day at Yarns Sold and Told as we have many prizes to pass out, sales and, of course, treats for our Christmas in July Celebration! Fun starts at 10:00 a.m. and we close at 4:00 p.m.
