Weekend Round Up!

Plied Knowledge: The week that was…

At the store:

  • NEW YARN! We have are now carrying another base from Freia  - the Minikins! They are ridiculously cute little things - especially the palette pack!-that have to be seen to be appreciated fully...
  • More Malabrigo! And yes, some of it is Rasta which we seriously just can't seem to keep in stock this time of year...
  • After our Black Friday Weekend extravaganza, we are busy restocking lots of our notions, bags, and needles. If you are looking for a great gift for yourself or the fiber artist in your life, we have yarn winders, Blue Q bags and needle sets back in the store!
  • One of the newest items in the store is not made of fiber at all but still SO CUTE! You have to take a look at the Sheep Parts Mugs from Lenny Mud...
  • Looking for a great stocking stuffer? We have Gleeners back in stock!
  • And don't forget to keep an eye on our classes - we update them regularly!

Around the web:

  • It's Gift Guide Season! We have a few that we perpetually love to pass along...
    • Kottke is a wonderful blog and has an excellent gift guide that will help you find something more off the beaten path for those in your life. Case in point, the Kano Harry Potter Coding Kit that looks pretty amazing...
    • Cup of Joe has a thoughtful gift guide covering most of the important people in your life...
    • For the foodies in your life, if you are looking for more than a quick trip to Trader Joe's for their latest wacky item, Uncommon Goods has some excellent options in all price ranges...
  • It's also Cookie Swap Season!
  • For those who have a special place in their heart for the movie Christmas Vacation, you are in luck! There exists a pop-up bar that looks exactly like the Griswold's living room. And yes, they even have Cousin Eddie's RV...

And totally, completely, unapologetically local:

  • The Cinnamon Bear is truly unique to Portland and dates back generations. Unlike the old Meyer and Frank Monorail ride which is gone forever, you can still take a Cinnamon Bear Cruise on the Portland Spirit...
  • Fan of the movie Die Hard? (Yes, it absolutely IS a Christmas movie!) Did you know there was a musical parody? It sold out last year so hopefully it isn't already too late...
  • CRAFTY WONDERLAND IS THIS WEEKEND!!!!
Have a great weekend and remember, you can always find us online!
