Welcome to Appalachian Yarns. We are striving to make this a one-stop shop for independent knitters & crocheters who are looking for help, ideas and laughter and local yarn shop owners who are looking for help with any aspect of their business.

Hi Everybody!  Still a busy week here at Appalachian Yarns.  I've been meeting lots of new folks from around the globe and it is so much fun!  The mystery KAL on Ravelry is still climbing in numbers - I think we have over 70 people now confirmed in the KAL and over 160 in the group now!  Our fan base on facebook has climbed to 114 at last peek...Thanks to everyone who is recommending us to friends and family - your endorsement is what makes us proud!

Newly arrived today is the special edition of Knitscene Easy 2010.  Some of the edition's headlines include the following;   28 Super Simple Projects,  Easy Stitches for New Knitters,  Get the Basics:  Tools, stitches and Lingo;  Make It Yours - Tips for Unique Knits; Plus....Simple Sweaters to Finish Fast and Make a Scarf - 8 Fun Ways....Looks like a great issue.  There's a really great sweater pattern in there that I'm putting in my queque!!

Be sure to check out Talitha Kuomi's website - link is located on Appalachian Yarns website.  Talitha creates really unique designs and her patterns are easy to follow!  She bravely agreed to moderate the KAL since we are all using her secret bag pattern!  You can track the membership and KAL progress by clicking on the upper tab "Mystery Bag KAL", also at Appalachian Yarns.  If you're still on the fence about participating - you have time.  The KAL will start in two weeks on April 27th!

Thanks for following along as we continue to progress and evolve!  We certainly appreciate it!
Have a great week and we'll be posting some more "Helpful Hints" in a day or so...
