Abstract Fiber is headed to SOAR! Spin-Off’s Autumn Retreat is the last week of October in southern Wisconsin, just outside of Chicago. We’re bringing crimpy, easy to spin cashmere, Polwarth, and BFL/Silk as our featured fibers, plus Hedonism, our luxury yarn available only direct from us. We’ll have our regular yarns and fibers too. If you can’t make it to SOAR check out AbstractFiber.com to find a local retailer or shop online. The market will be open to the public on Thursday, October 28, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, Friday, October 29, 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Saturday, October 30, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Everything's coming up Cassidy at Purlescence Yarns! Join us for our fabulous fall Cassidy Knit-Along, featuring Chic Knit's wonderful cabled cardigan pattern. We're loving this piece knit in Manos Rittenhouse Merino 5-Ply, Cascade Venezia & Eco Wool, Lorna's Laces Green Line Worsted & Shepherd Worsted, to name but a few. Mention the Knitmore Girls when you place your order for 10% off your yarn purchase for the KAL through the end of October. And don't forget, Amy Singer is coming November 2 to teach her Non-Wool Socks Class. Seats in this class are limited, so sign up early!

Work one-on-one with Isager, Mondragon, Bortner, Duvekot, Slicer-Smith, Brown-Reinsel, and Bush. Learn to build on classic designs, master one-yarn intarsia, and enter the world of entrelac…plus much, much more!
