All In for April
Well, we had so many showers in March that I’m hoping maybe April will be a little kinder to us here in the South. Living here is not for wimps, let me tell you. So if we can manage to ignore the pollen (or at least pretend to) then maybe we can get jumping on this Spring thing! We’re four months into the greatest year in the world, right? Right ♥
Since I’m sure you don’t want to miss anything, I’m going to make it really easy for you to find everything. Please have a look around the site, join the facebook group, share your pics of finished items from R&R patterns, and contact me to let me know of any suggestions, requests, or questions you may have.
Just as a reminder in case you were unaware, if you’ll look at the to menu of this website, you’ll see a page tab called “LYS.” This is the page for shop news. If you want to see what new yarns have come in, which classes we’ve got coming up, and if there are any sales going on, this is the place to be. I update it at least once a week, sometimes more, so if you’re not into facebook, just come on back here and check the LYS tab to see what’s going on! Go ahead and bookmark it so you won’t forget.
Guess what. WE’RE MOVING!! The LYS, Rows & Roses Yarn & Fiber, is moving 4 doors down to a bigger and better location. Thankfully it’s just 20 extra steps down the sidewalk so wherever you normally like to park, keep parking there.
Rows & Roses Yarn & Fiber, at 113 E. North 1st St., will have its Grand Reopening on Tuesday, April 6. Be sure to mark your calendars; we’re going to have a giveaway of two $25 gift cards and a craft beer 6pk generously donated by Brews On The Alley, as well as a cookie try from Billie Day Cookies and some freebie coupons. You will get to choose a balloon with your purchase of $10+ and it will have a coupon inside for a free….. something. Will it be a skein of yarn? A magazine? A set of crochet hooks? Come find out!
**Spring Specials & Customs**
The second round of Specials & Customs is here! Come on over and let me knit and crochet you the stuff of your dreams. I’ve got a bunch of fun patterns picked out I’m offering for pre-order at special prices, as well as a customs list where you can get me to make you anything you want! Join the facebook group and see what strikes your fancy. This event closes on April 9, so be sure to get your orders in!
(Please take note that in order to join the group, there is one question you MUST answer on the application. No answer, no admittance. Thanks for understanding.)
The winter Blanket-along went so well that we’re going to have a sweater-along for the spring. Knit or crochet, any pattern, any yarn… all choices are up to you!
Join us in the Ravelry group for some friendly sweater-making chatter, plenty of inspiration, and have your questions answered by the hive mind.
A little something for summer, Double Dipped is a fun and flirty top that’s a cinch to make. Worked in DK weight cotton/linen, this top is crocheted using a lacy stitch pattern for the bottom to keep you cool while keeping you covered, and a solid stitch pattern for the bodice. Inspired by deep wading, the darker lace on the edging looks as if you’ve taken a quick dip to cool off. Add to that the flair for just the right amount of swing, and you’ve got yourself one killer top!
