All of us at CKYC want to wish you a happy winter season, filled with lots of fiber goodness.  Here's what's happening in December.


SBS was a resounding success.  We welcomed many new faces, as well as familiar ones, and saw an enthusiastic response to our special Subscriber-only promotion.  Not yet a CKYC Subscriber?  In addition to saving 5% every day on CKYC yarn, needles, notions, books, and patterns, and 20% on classes, Subscribers also have access to promotions and early bird deals.  A CKYC subscription makes a great Christmas gift!


We introduced five new lines from Blue Sky Fibers on Small Business Saturday: Spud & Chloë Fine, Sweater, and Outer; Brushed Suri DK; and Organic Cotton Worsted.  We've also added new lines from Cascade (Heritage), Universal Yarn (Deluxe Worsted, Adore), and Brown Sheep (Lamb's Pride Worsted and Bulky).  In addition, our wonderful consignors have brought us their hand-dyed yarn--Enchanted Sky's Emily, Sakura, and Valentina lines even come from alpacas right here in the Jemez Mountains!

 This month's Featured Finished Object comes from Suzannah.   She made this adorable version of Anker's Jacket  out of Cascade Ultra Pima and found the buttons right here at CKYC on Thursday.  Although we don't currently have Ultra Pima in stock, we're always happy to special order, and remember that you can buy Ravelry patterns right here in-store!



Behold the feet of three happy graduates of the Learn to Knit Socks class! 

Over the course of three classes, these successful students learned everything about basic sock construction and are eager to tackle Sock Number Two.  They all used Adore, a wool/acrylic blend in the perfect weight for knitting quick socks in fun colors. 


The store will be open for last-minute shoppers from 1-6 PM on Sunday, December 23, and from 10 AM -6 PM on Monday, December 24.  (Or you can tell people you're shopping and come craft in the peace and quiet for an hour or two.  We won't tell.)  We'll be closed for Christmas on Tuesday, December 25, but reopen with normal hours on Wednesday, December 26.

We'll remain closed as usual on New Year's Eve, Monday, December 31, but open at 10 AM on New Year's Day, Tuesday, January 1, for the all-crafts-welcome PAJAMA PARTY!  We'll have snacks and some sweet sales to ring in the New Year.

Thanks for all your support, and happy holidays!
