We have been getting in new shipments of many of our favorite yarns but have also been adding some new and interesting yarns. Among our favorites is Plymouth’s Cotton Kisses. It comes in a cute package in which each ball includes 2 baby patterns, 3 cute ducky buttons. And best of all, one ball knits an entire baby garment for babies up to 12 months. Each ball is 396 yards of yarn after all. It’s a soft cotton, acrylic blend that we have stocked in 10 colors. And for babies and their mamas, it is machine washable.
We have also done a baby blanket with two balls of yarn in a bright yellow color. So come on in and take a look at this new staff favorite.

We are delighted to host Kira Dulaney of Kira K. Designs at our store with her beautiful designs and samples for a local designer showcase at our store. Kira started young with crochet and knitting – she knew tha basics of crochet at 3! And knitting at about 5! She grew up to work in the industry and was the manager of the Art Fibers store in San Francisco from 2003 to 2008. This got her started in the designing business – she now has more than 50 patterns from scarves to sweaters. Her designs are extremely feminine and have classic simple lines.
While we have a preview in the store of some of her designs and samples including the very cute pullover here, Kira will be bringing her complete portfolio of designs and a complete trunk show of samples to see all her. Come support a local designer (she lives in Oakland) and get to see a fabulous line of designs at the same time.
Kira will be at Nine Rubies on Wednesday, September 16th from 3 pm to 7 pm. We will have light refreshments. Since it is Wednesday, we will be open late, so you can stay and knit with us if you want to.
We are looking forward to seeing you all!
