Hello Close Knitters!
Happy Holiday Season to You All It is fitting that we say thanks to you all at this time. So... THANK YOU! Amidst the busy Thanksgiving time two years ago, we opened Close Knit. These two years have been wonderful, especially because of each of you. This also makes for a good excuse to have a sale...the second anniversary sale. The date to be announced. Get all your Holiday knitting done for others, and then make a list for the new year for yourself and watch for our sale date!

It has been a busy class schedule this fall. A few of them have spaces left. (class schedule). Or give us a call to check, 503-288-4568. Check out the "Made" page in the Willy Week. Layne took our "Hang Ten" sock class and is writing about her adventures in sock knitting. Thanks Layne!

A few teases today. We have a full stock of all Addi lace needles in all sizes and a new stock of Lantern Moon Ebony and Cherry. Our restock of Malabrigo yarn is en route as we are almost completely out of all of it! To add to our great sock yarn selections we now also have, Claudia Handpaint, Ceyeber Fiber (with our own Close Knit color), Art Yarns, Missoni socks, Lana Grossa Cashmere blend sock yarn, tons of Jitterbug, and hold on your feet...Noro Kureyon socks are due in shortly. We ordered every color!

Don't forget we are fully stocked in Rowan, Brown Sheep, Cascade 220, Pastaza, Berocco Ultra and Peruvia, Imperial Stock Ranch, and our Luxury yarns in Tilli Thomas, Jade Sapphire and a new Art Yarn worth talking about "Ensemble". This yarn is Silk and Cashmere hand dyed together in 256 yards of shear knitting bliss! Manos' new yarn is coming next week also. The Brilliance of Manos in a wool silk blend. We ordered every solid and multi!

We have the Amy Butler Knitting bags and our own friend-and-crochet-afficionado-Liz's bags "Sugared Fruit". They are really delectable.
Our favorite jewelry is twinkling on the countertop, "River Song". We have her new jems available for that special person on your list (or yourself). Coming next week also is our "other" favorite local jeweler, "Dotted Line".

A SPECIAL KNIT NIGHT at Close Knit. Mark December 12th for a fun Wednesday night with Leigh Radford. Knit Night is 6-10 and from 7-9 Leigh will teach us how to make her amazing Silk Gelato Garland by Lantern Moon. Made with just one ball of Silk Gelato. We will be raffling off a gift of Silk Gelato to one lucky recipient that night. The class is informal and FREE. Plus just good, plain fun!!!

Well, that was fun! We hope that this holiday season is full of great family, friend and knitting time!

Come see us...
