The Urban Knitters at Wilde Roast

It was a Wild Holiday Sunday at Wilde Roast today. Steven was there with last minute assistance for knitters with Holiday Stallout. He showed some super yarn with super prices for the attendees, Ozark Handspun for a super quick and fun, 2 skein, winter hat with flaps and a tie. It was particularly apt for this icy day. We can't even tell you of the super prices he gave to the attendees. Urban Knitters is going to be on again January 11th and then every other week following, every two weeks. You need to get reservations to Steven to be a part of this. Get on his mailing list so you know everything that is happening with the Glitter Knitter and the Yarn Garage.

Great Parties with the Glitter Knitter

Sunday the Urban Knitters met at the Yarn Garage Shop for a magnificent party. Lori prepared lots of super snacks and Steven, the Glitter Knitter was in full regalia. Lots of holiday fun was had with some special attention to hints and fixes on the Holiday knitting. The shop and the Rosemount Florists shop attached were full of frivolity and joy.

You have to see the new shop arrangement and new stock that Steven has brought for the Holidays. Comments on were glowing about the shop.

" Have you been to the YG lately? I walked in the other day and almost fell over. You can see the ceiling! And yarn is stored in bins. It still has that eclectic, slightly disorganized charm, but it feels more open. Cool."

"My mom and I ... decided to swing by Yarn Garage. She had never been there before and was quite overwhelmed by the massive amounts of yarn contained in the shop. It was fun and of course Stephen was great along with the rest of the staff."

"I haven’t had a chance to get over there yet, but I can’t wait to see it. I’ve heard lots of good things. And the knitting area is now up in front by the window, I’m told. Yay!"

"I just stopped in today and all I have to say is WOW! There is still the same great selection (and awesome service), but the shop feels more open and better lit. I encourage others to stop by and see the new look. :)"

"Nothing compares to the shop, Steven, and the fantasmagorical selection of yarns and accessories. I am a new knitter but the shop inspires me and it is a grand place to just go and knit and hang out."
