November has drifted in with rainy weather and mild temperatures.
It won't last, but it is a good time to spend a few last days outside enjoying the leaves. 
The Catskill Mountains are a glorious place to visit this time of year,
and in 2 weeks we will head there for our annual Fall Knitting retreat.
Some folks come for the topic presented and to learn a few new knitting tricks,
and some come just for the weekend away spent KNITTING for 48 hours.
The Winter Clove Inn is a totally laid back place and we always have a good time.
We still have a few spots open if this appeals.
Consider grabbing your best knitting buddy and heading to the hills on November 16!


The best of Elizabeth Zimmermann' s KNITTING WORKSHOP Retreat
Winter Clove Inn, Round Top, NY              November 16, 17 & 18, 2018
More information about this year's topic and registration links here

Two new Countrywool patterns have been published this month,
and one of them is still FREE  for a few more days through our Facebook group: Countrywoolers:



Icelandic Sheep Socks
$4 on Ravelry

Have you seen the new CLEARANCE YARN wall at Countrywool?
All odd skeins are  $1, $2 and $2.25.
Peace Fleece, Peace Fleece Sport, Heilo, Baby Ull are 35-40% off.

The deal is 35% off if you take just a few skeins, but 40% off if you clean out a color.
If you'd like to order online, that's fine, but there is no free shipping. Any credit card/paypal payments used will reduce the discount by 5%.
Old fashioned checks/cash will work great and not reduce your discount.


Heads up! KNIT NITE gets a new burst of SOCK ENERGY this month,
and check out the classes we have on tap for later in the month and December.

Heads up all you charity knitters. The Claverack Library has graciously offered to host
weekly KNIT INS on Wednesday afternoons, 1-3,
to work on charity knitting projects for the homeless and less fortunate and at the VA in our area.
We need your help to knit/crochet/sew for our needy neighbors.
Lots of patterns, yarns and cheery conversation await you! All skill levels are welcome.
If you ever worked on knitting fish for our afghans, we can use some more.
7"x9" squares for afghans are also needed.
