More this & that ...
scrambling to get ready for the holidays.
Grab a cuppa & snuggle in!
Kim Dyes Yarn's monthly colorways are in the shop ... all of our 'Hunter' is spoken for (we've ordered more - is it green, or blue, or black? Yes, yes it it is ... all of these.), 'Golden Hour' is still available! These are $30/skein on Kim's Sourdough sock base ~ 85% Superwash Merino/20% Nylon, 400 yards/100 grams per skein. Always a pleasure!
The last of our mini-subscription from Dream in Color arrived this week, just in time for holiday knitting! Pictured are the latest selections in Smooshy with Cashmere Petites, 80 yards of delicious 70% SW Merino/20% Cashmere/10% Nylon. These luxurious yarns in these little hanks are perfect for those colorwork or holiday projects at $10/skein. All you Arugami folks ... these are the best!
We cannot say enough about Thistle Farms & how much we love supporting these ladies. Here's a link to their website, they're all pretty amazing. Thistle Farms.

They recently (like last week) introduced their CBD line, and we have them available in the shop. The Bath Soak is gone and we're reordering, Body Balm is still available in the 2.5 oz. size ($55) & .9 oz size ($20). Help us help them! 

Be sure to stop in to their cafe on Charlotte Avenue ... Meg from Haus of Yarn recently returned from a Thistle Farms' outreach in Ukraine, the results of the blankets she helped create continue to be available in their tea room. I'm pretty proud of her.  The Cafe at Thistle Farms.
We have a great selection of True South's artistic jigsaw puzzles in stock ... perfect for holiday gifting! This is local company based in Nashville, come & get 'em while we still have 'em ~ they are $24.95 each while our supply lasts!
I want to share this sweet little moment in the shop this week. 

First thing Tuesday morning, I answered the phone to a gruff, older (than me) man ...
He: "Is this EVE & Company"
Me: "No, this is Ewe & Company"
He: "Are you the knitting shop?"
Me: "Yes, sir." 
He: "Are you Eve?"
Me: "No, sir, I'm Glenna. There is no Eve here."
He: (chuckle) "Well, I'm coming to see see you."
Then we had a little conversation about hours, directions ... 
Thinking he was bringing me another 'repair project', I agonized over how I was just going to say "No".

He came in with a gift bag, something all wrapped in tissue, and pulled out an exquisite vintage hand-knit dress his late wife had made. He didn't want us to repair it, or sell it, he just wanted us to find it a proper home. He said that he couldn't bring himself to donate it to a charity/thrift shop ... wanted it to go to someone who would wear it. Then he handed me his 'calling card', thanked me, and left. Simply wanted to find this dress to find the proper home for his late wife.

After he left, I buried my face in that dress and cried ... it was so similar to the dresses my Nana always sewed. But to knit this ... I cannot even imagine.

I have one customer in mind for this dress ... so if you're that sweet little professional baker that stops by ... come see me. I immediately thought of you. It's teeny ... maybe a size 4. This needs to be worn again. 

Most weeks I just love my job!

Yours in yarn, 
Glenna

PS ... Save the date ~ next Thursday, November 17 ... YaYaFiber night @ SKYKING, 5-ish until we're done!
