It is time for Halloween again! Fun, right? Little kids wait for this holiday all year. They plan out their costumes, and get ready to trick or treat. They can’t wait to trade candy with their buddies. All good fun. But, we just wanted to put out a message that we just couldn’t not do this year. You notice that we mentioned little kids, right? Little is the key word here. So, we are addressing the other trick or treater; the kid way too old to still be trick or treating.
- You had to shave this morning.
- You and your friends are driving to the desired trick or treat street.
- You are way taller than any height requirement for a ride at Universal Studios.
- You are a registered voter.Get it? It’s over.
But, don’t be so glum. Let your little brother have his glory, dressed as Harry Potter, collecting confections. You can do tons of things he can’t do. Don’t you remember how tough it was to be his age? And, it isn’t all rainbows anyway. He is about to experience the heartache that is candy corn. (It looks awesome, and you get all excited about eating it. Then you eat it and remember that it is awful, and you ask yourself why you never remember that this stuff is terrible.)

See? A life lesson.So, here are your choices. You can either go to a party with others your age dressed in costumes, or stay home and answer the door when the kids ring the bell for treats. If neither of these work for you, go upstairs, take off your Jack Sparrow costume, and do something grown up like watch CNN, preparing for the first time you will vote. And, yes, you can steal some of the candy. We’re not heartless here.
We know that all this doesn’t have a lot to do with knitting. We just had to put this out there. Besides, there are no Newesletter rules. This isn’t Russia, people. But, since we are a yarn store, let’s talk knitting.
A ton of stuff has arrived this month. New Madeline Tosh, new Shibui, new Loopy Mango, new Manos, new Anzula, actually, more than we can list right here. Come in and see and touch everything. We have great new patterns and ideas for making your next project.
We like to mention, from time to time, that we offer individual, one- on-one lessons for anything knitting, crocheting, felting, or weaving related. We are happy to accommodate your schedule and your needs. Just call, write, or stop buy to schedule a lesson. The lessons are $28.00 per hour. (And, don’t forget about our gift cards. You can purchase a lesson for someone anytime. Think holidays.) We also are always happy to help you if you are stuck with a project (we do not care if you purchased the yarn from us). We will help you for free and will make sure you are able to finish your project. We like happy, confident knitters. It’s what we are all about.
So, new stuff (And always more coming, yay!), great support, and a life lesson. No tricks. Just treats.
See you soon!
