MPLS,MN Knitters--Crafty Planet Sale thru 12/31/06!
Went to Crafty Plantthis evening and picked up the following:

SWTC Phoenix ribbon (soy silk) $7.00 a skein (reg. 15.00).

Karaoke $6.30 a skein (reg. $9)

2 skeins of Malabrigo Arrecife $10.50 each for hat & scarf to match my parka. (not on sale)

The store is open, Sunday, December 31st, until 4 p.m.

It's a small store that cators to needle & quilting arts. Crafty Planet even sells purse handles, a small selection of needles, hooks, and tools, and a decent selection of knitting books. The shop is small with that wonderful next door neighbor feel--a shop my dd prefers to all the other oversized shops around town.
What I've learned so far:
Knitting in the round*Garter Stitch short rows without wrapping *Eve's Rib * even ribbing * seaming ridges evenly * Annie Monesett's favorite increase**Magic Loop*5 cast-on methods* 4 decrease methods
