Need to know...

Our workshop with Chris Bylsma scheduled for 5/20 had to be cancelled due to illness. We have rescheduled her Crayon Box Jacket workshop for 6/24. There are a few seats left so if you are interested and missed out on the first workshop, call the store and reserve your seat.
Vivian Hoxbro workshop for 6/17 & 6/18 still has some seats availlable. Call Knitters Mercantile for more details on both workshops. (614)888-8551

Book of the Week...

This week, 5/22, we are offering the book "Easy Afghans for Knitters." There are 67 afghans in this book including throws, lap afghans, baby blankets, kids afghans and lots of cozy afghans to warm whomever is wrapped up in them. Perhaps this would be the book to start your Christmas gifts. (ARG)
Also need to tell you that the new Noro Kureyon colors are here.
Stop in and remember that tonight is the monthly meeting night.
See ya'
