Weekly News Update

Hi everyone!  Wheeew, it's been a whirlwind week for the past month....but things are coming together now.  The website is getting organized and should be complete by early next week.  The timing is perfect since Dale of Norway and Cascade will be in stock by then as well.  We'll announce our grand opening as soon as we complete all of the site changes.
We have some great yarns and books coming your way!!  "60 Quick Knits featuring 20 hats, 20 scarves and 20 mittens" as well as all of the recommended Cascade yarns and "Knitting Brioche" which has some beautiful stitch patterns, as well as a full brioche stitch instructional section.  You'll love Knitting Brioche as this technique makes your fabric wonderful on both sides at the same time!  Look for some new Cascade yarns like Eco Wool +!!  I used Eco + to make the Nora's sweater in eggplant, featured below.   Fabulous yarn at a great price!   Dale of Norway, Baby Ull yarns are on their way!  These vibrant colors are perfect for cute baby and toddler patterns but they are also fun as adult summer tops!!  These yarns were used in the Ladybug sweater featured on our storefront!  We'll also be bringing you some of the industry's top magazines from Interweave.  It's been very busy here at Appalachian Yarns and we love it that way!  Remember, join our Ravelry group or become our fan on facebook as we'll be occasionally offering specials to our group members and fans.  Stop in anytime - we're open 24/7 !!

  1. Just wanted to say that the Nora looks beautiful!!!! I love that you did it in purple...I love purple and that is why I picked up that issue of Iterweave when it came out. But it is in Fall 2009 :) Fantastic job...gotta get my hands on the perfect yarn!
