Thanks for coming to our Grand Opening, taking our survey, and generally being the best and most supportive community a local yarn store could ask for!

Here's what's happening at CKYC in November:


The Grand Opening was a resounding success.  Congratulations to Adrienne Wibbert, winner of the $50 gift certificate for filling out our survey!  Thanks also to Bonnie Gordon for the fabulous write-up in the LA Daily Post (if you missed it, read the article here).  It was so much fun, we'll have to do it again some time.


New yarn and other goodies continue to arrive (almost) daily; last week brought us new colors of Classic Shades, a full range of knitting needles and crochet hooks, new notions, including stitch markers, row counters, gauges, Chibis . . . anything a knitter or crocheter could want, and--most exciting--two brand-new yarn lines from LOCAL DYER Wooly Wonka!

Also stay tuned for five new lines coming in soon from new-to-Los-Alamos Blue Sky Fibers.

This month's Featured Finished Object is Jennifer's amazing Sprite Vest!  This fantastic pattern is FREE and Jennifer's version took less than FOUR skeins of Classic Shades Frenzy in colorway "Thrill Ride."  (That's right--even the largest size only takes five skeins!)  We have plenty of Frenzy in stock and more coming at the end of the week. 


The store will be closed Thursday, November 22nd, for Thanksgiving.  We'll reopen at 10 on Friday with normal hours, and we'll have extended hours from 10-5 (complete with open stitching group!) on Small Business Saturday.  Please stop by!

Thanks again for all your support, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
