Bearfootresupplied  While we're on the subject of sock yarn, it seems to be a good time to mention a few other fabulous sock choices.  We have the Bearfoot basket filled up again – this luxurious yarn from Mountain Colors makes a really yummy pair of socks. 

(Some of us take it as our personal obligation to try Fasset6ply every sock yarn in the store – so do some of our customers – if you need an explanation, you need to knit more socks)

We also have an excellent supply of Kaffe Fassett's sock yarn – the master of color lends his magic to sock yarn – and (speaking from personal experience, of course) the socks that emerge from this yarn look fabulous.  Feel great too. 

The Fassett yarn also comes in a heavier weight as well – "6 fach" or sport weight.  So if you want your socks a bit heavier or want to put that color genius into a larger garment, this heavier version is an excellent choice.

We have a couple more non-wool choices too – we have a lot of choices, period.  We've been doing socks and selling sock yarn for decades and we'll always have a terrific selection.

And don't forget our Special Saturdays – after Meg Leach's book signing today, get knitting on Kiki's Hats for next week's visit bylocal popular author Warren Hanson.  We will give you the yarn and pattern for a hat to donate.  Call the shop to join in a Kiki's Klub knitting group – let's get a whole lot of hats ready!
