Events, events, sales and visits!

The Pacific NW Knitting Machine Seminar went off without a hitch in the beautiful downtown Vancouver Hilton Convention Center.  A great event with lots of education, entertainment and fun!!  Machine knitters had much to learn and share in a beautiful location.  Thank you all for joining us!  You made it successful!

Lily Chin's class on Sunday was a very intimate affair with hand knitters learning many secrets to successful knitting and then enjoyed the afternoon learning reversible cables.  I learned that Lily is responsible for the reversible cables as we know them today, where there is NO wrong side.  There were reversible cables many years ago, but they are not the truly reversible cables that Lily does.

We are moving our Pastaza out to make room for some new exciting yarns!  Normally $8.50 and $12.50 for the hand dyed, we are offering a special blog purchase at $4.50 for either.  Get yours before we post the sale price on line!  You do want to yours while the selection is good.  Soon we will post it on our clearance page, and it go like wildfire in August!
  • Cascade Pastaza Yarn is a 50% Llama / 50% Wool, 100g - 132 yds per hank.
  • Gauge:4 sts per inch on US#9 (5.5mm)
  • Care: Hand wash and lay flat.

  • Order on page and page, and be sure to post the code BS450 in the comment line during checkout.  I will reduce the price before I collect on your credit card authorization.
    Don't FORGET!!  BS450 in the comment line, and I will change the price of the yarn (solid, heather or hand paint) to only $4.50, otherwise it is still full price! (special price limited to stock on hand.)

    Thank you to the Tigard Knitting Guild . . . . . I think . . . .  seriously....yes, thank you.  But imagine my eyes when the guild pulled up in this monster bus!  55+ hand knitters stopped in for a 45-60 minute furious buying spree on Saturday morning.  The weather was beautiful for their annual Shop Hop event.  This was their first year stopping at Angelika's Yarn Store.  Thank you members!  Hope to see you all again!
