AUGUST 2018 NEWSLETTER

AUGUST 2018 NEWSLETTER

August’s Featured Yarn Now in Stock!


Cammello Merino by Plymouth Yarn

Come check out Plymouth Yarn’s new Cammello Merino yarn! As the name implies, lovely Baby Camel and Extrafine Merino blend to present a lightweight yarn meant for comfort. Moderately stretchy, Cammello Merino works well in colorwork and cabling. 80% Extrafine Merino, 20% Baby Camel.

Cammello Merino is available at the shop or through our website.

Rosemary has made a lovely “Fair Isle Hat” (Plymouth Pattern #3147) as a shop sample. The pattern can be purchased here in the store for just $5.00. Three colors of yarn are needed, and you’ll be able to make two complete hats (with the colors reversed).

RichiesCap
OPERATION RICHIE’S CAP
(IT IS TIME TO THINK LIGHT WEIGHT HATS FOR SUMMER)
This is a project for making chemo caps for cancer patients in memory of my friend, Richie Aaron. I have created a knit and crochet pattern and it’s free when you’ll make a cap to donate. This project continues to be such a success as I receive hats from all over the country from customers that have come by the shop or read about it on-line and mail them on to me. I encourage soft yarns for warm caps during winter months and cotton, bamboo, etc. for summer months to protect against the sun.

OperationWarmHands
OPERATION WARM HANDS: (IN MAINE WINTER COMES SOON AND I WILL NEED MITTENS
)
This is another wonderful project of making mittens for donation for the winter season to those with a need. What a great small project for the knitter with little time and so worth while to a child with cold hands! I invite you to help in this project……it’s a great summer project too!

.

IF YOU KNIT OR CROCHET……CAN YOU HELP AND BECOME A PART OF GATHERING HANDS?
Just drop me an email: gifts@maine-crafts.com
