Bad News, Good News with prizes!

The Bad News is that my favorite Local Yarn Store is closing its doors, a victim of competition and the sagging economy. No more squeezing the cashmere for me. Boo-hoo!

The Good News (for you guys) is that they are having a sale on their inventory so I bought some goodies to give away to my favorite Yarnies.

The first of the goodies is this cool variegated ribbon yarn Noro Gisha in Color No. 109. I scooped up six skeins which measure 69 meters each. (You do the conversion; I never learned the metric system, despite constant threats that the U. S. was going metric any day now.)



Here it is up close so you can see the shades and texture better:



If you'd like a chance to win it, send an email with "Noro" in the subject line to nancy@nancyherkness.com.

I'll draw the winner this Friday, July 3rd, as a Happy Fourth of July prize!

Yes, I'm very depressed about it. There are two other yarn stores in my area but this one was where I felt at home. They had such a gorgeous selection of yarns and I got to know everyone who worked there.

Ouch. I've got my fingers crossed that none of my local yarn stores close (that even includes the Michael's for copious amounts of crochet cotton).

I hate hearing that your LYS has closed. We lost some shops here in the SF Bay Area as well, as Beadissimo, one of the best bead shops I have ever seen. The only one I feel good about is Cottage Yarns in South San Francisco, she seems to be a very good business manager as well as a great knitter and artist.
