First, MagKnits has their new issue up. They've got a really cute kids t-shirt in there for all of my free time. They have a couple of pairs of sock patterns as well, but I admit, I haven't looked at them much.

Second, Kaleidoscope Yarns had Cherry Tree Merino Boucle for 25% off in case you are in need.

Astrid also has some really interesting yarn, the Atelier Zitron Unikat. There are some beautiful colors and there's also a free mitten pattern. I wish my last order had not already shipped or I would have ordered this also. She has the new Opal Bamboo collection as well. Really nice stuff.

I stopped by the Wool Connection around 11 a.m. This is my third visit to a yarn store that was closing in the past year. They are getting more sad. They were very picked over except for notions and buttons which were exactly what I needed. There are only four days left until they close, and the knitting world, I imagine, will be a little smaller because of it.

I'll be keeping an eye on my email and add more sales as I get them. And if you have any you want me to post, just send them to me or add them to the comments.

I have to agree that the loss of the Wool Connection is very sad indeed. I have enjoyed their Ewephoric Knitting weekends and have taken classes with many fabulous designers (including Lily Chin). The loss of Needleworks, Fabric Place and Wool Connection has me wondering what is going on? Knitting is enjoying all-time popularity with both the young and old so why are the LYS closing? I wonder what will happen to the Wool Connection catalog business?

Yeah! 3 sock patterns on Mag knits. Nice. Thanks for the heads up
