It’s that time of year again: World Wide Knit in Public Day is upon us! I love this unofficial holiday because it encourages knitters to come together and celebrate their amazing skills. June 8th-16th, people are gathering all over the globe to show off their yarncrafting skills in public.
NEY Community Project- create a bee keepers quilt from June 8th-16th
Join us for a hexipuff demo on June 8th showing 3 different cast on methods for puffs.
(Every hexipuff must be made from NEY yarn so dig into your stash and find those leftovers or buy our fun “Sock Bites”. You need 10-11 yards of fingering weight yarn and a small bit of roving/polyfil to complete a hexipuff.)
1-hexipuff to be part of this special project.
5-Hexipuffs=1 stamp and an entry for the grand prize drawing.

Mother's day is a great time to make handmade gifts. I can't think of another occasion when the thought and effort that go into such a gift would be as appreciated. Mothers tend to love the things their children make for them, whether it be a piece of macaroni art or something a little more "adult"...make sure to check out the NEY blog for some quick knit gift suggestions.
We also have some great gift ideas if you would rather give her something special to knit for herself. We will have special kits put together with yarns, books and patterns that are all new to the shop. The first 10 kits purchased will receive 20% off, so do not delay!
