1. New Hours
Effective May 1st we will be cutting back our hours a wee bit. This shouldn't interfere too terribly much with your yarny needs, since the hours being cut were generally very, very quiet here at the shop.

Sat & Sun: 12-7pm
Mon, Wed, & Thurs: 12-6pm
Tuesdays: 12-10pm
Fridays: 12-8pm

The good news is, none of our social knitting events are changing at all. They remain as always:

Knitnight: Tuesdays 6-10pm
Friday Night Knitters: Fridays 5-8pm
Crochet-and-Knit-a-Long: Sundays 1-4pm

2. New Things
Lots of new things this month, many of which are already depleted. Follow us on twitter or facebook to get news of new things the MINUTE they come in.
