. . . but the fiber is so delightful!  Winter is the best time for knitting and crocheting, don't you think?  If you were away over the Thanksgiving weekend, you may have missed the NEW YARN that debuted on Small Business Saturday.  Come in and see it in person.  We're deliberately keeping the class schedule light in December so that everyone can enjoy their holidays, but Open Stitching Group is still happening every Thursday night (4:30-7:30) and on Saturdays December 7 and 21 (2-5).  It's a perfect time to come see new yarns and catch up with your crafting friends.

Hope to see you there!

Mary and the CKYC Board
As noted above, we have a brand-new yarn from Blue Sky Fibers in the store.  We're happy to bring you the full range of Woolstok Worsted, a 100% wool yarn that comes in both 50g and 150g skeins (great for colorwork sweaters).  This is a lofty, squishy, absolutely perfect yarn that must be felt to be believed.  The Tonka Bay Toque pictured below is on display at the store; come see it for yourself.
Pat Emerson, a fiber artist based in Santa Fe, makes gorgeous, one-of-a-kind bags, and CKYC is now carrying her work!  These are styled as purses with lots of internal pockets and elegant finishing, but they'd also be good for carrying small knitting and crochet projects--and of course, they're absolutely beautiful.

In the rush up to Thanksgiving, we also added another new yarn, Universal's Angora Lace.  Despite the name, Angora Lace is a fingering weight blend of angora, wool, and nylon, perfect for socks!

'Tis the season for a little rest and relaxation for your CKYC (and Atomic City Quilts) employees!  We'll close early on Christmas Eve (Tuesday, December 24, 10:00-3:00), and remain closed on Christmas Day (Wednesday, December 25).  Thursday, December 26 (10-7:30), Friday, December 27 (10-6), and Saturday, December 28 (10-3), all have regular hours, and we'll be closed as usual that Sunday and Monday.  Tuesday, December 31, we'll be open 10-3, and on Wednesday, January 1, hours are from 12-6 (a late start and a regular close).  Regular hours resume Thursday, January 2, and should continue until further notice.  Clear as mud?  Check the schedule below where I've laid it out with bullet points.

We have a lot to show you this month!  First up is Antonia's lovely hat, crocheted with local Siren Yarn Co!

Second is Amber's beautiful cowl knit for her daughter out of Universal Yarn Classic Shades Sequins Lite in "Jubilant."  We have lots of this color left . . .

Doris designed this beautiful poncho in Classic Shades (I think this is "Velvet Cloak").  Watch for the pattern and a class coming in January!

Ellin really enjoyed the entrelac hat class and finished hers right away!  This is two colors of Cherub Chunky.  (And I believe I spy a felted slipper, too.)

And last, but certainly not least, Celeste's lovely tapestry, using several colors of Cascade 220 Fingering, proves that yarn isn't just for crochet and knitting!

(PS: you may have noticed that the same names crop up again and again in our Featured Finished Objects.  That's because the same people keep sharing their finished objects!  If you want to be featured, share with us--and posting pictures on our social media counts, too!)



Here's what's coming up in December.  Our class schedule changes often in response to real life, and we add new classes all the time.  Make sure you're up-to-date by checking the website: or Facebook page:  To sign up for a class, call the store during business hours, send an email, reach out via Facebook message, or come on by.  Remember that CKYC subscribers get a 20% discount on all class fees and that classes with no enrollees 48 hours before class start will be canceled
