New yarn!

I've got exciting new yarn in the store, beautiful post-consumer recycled stuff that Scott Bodenner is producing to benefit the Church of Craft (80% of the purchase price goes directly back to the CoC). Here's a look at the gorgeous over-dyed yarns he brought this week.


Check out the front page of the website for class listings, holiday schedule, and whatnot. To stay apprised of the most up-to-date Yarnivore information, of course, you should join the store mailing list!

In brief, here's the scoop: the store is closed Wednesday, November 24th - Friday, November 26th, reopening on Saturday, November 27th.

On Saturday, December 4th, everything in the store is 10% off, and there will be a tree to trim and refreshments to enjoy.

Happy Holidays!

Made with love by a liberal

Snagged this from the comments over at Making Light -- Made with Love by a Liberal. What a great idea! Here's the "who we are" blurb:

We are a group of progressive liberals and dedicated crafters. We are guided by our faith, our values, and our politics to help make the world a better place.

I'm going to tell as many people as I can about this -- I've been looking for positive things I can do in the wake of the election.

Class listings up!

Hi there! Life goes on, and so does knitting. I've just put up the first set of class listings for Yarnivore.

I'm really pleased to be offering classes now! Slowly but surely, I'm getting this yarn store going.

All I'm able to offer

Part of me wants to rant. Part of me wants to cry (and has been). Here's the only comfort I can come up with that seems appropriate, Elizabeth Zimmermann's old advice: Knit on, with confidence and hope, through all crises.

Read Making Light. I like it over there.

Our own little NYC anti-voter conspiracy?

At my office today, we realized that none of us had received League of Women Voters brochures (warning .pdf link), or any of those official pre-election mailings about the candidates that we normally get in the couple of weeks before a big election. What gives?

Evil postal carriers? I've gotten all my normal junk mail, but no voter information pamphlets.

At least I know to VOTE ON LINE E for the Working Families Party.

PS -- If you live in NYC and you did get a brochure, could you let me know? I'd rather blame incompetence than conspiracy, really I would!
