Yarn Spotlight & Coupon from Knitting in the Red Yarn Shop & Tea Room
We made it through June! Thank you to all who came out and supported us last weekend. It really made a difference. It was just amazing to see such support and kindness.

It was so heartwarming and encouraging to have the support of so many lovely customers, it really gave us inspiration to pull through and make this happen. I hope we can continue to be here and offer amazing yarns, a great atmosphere and inspiration to all of you as well.

Please continue your support in the coming weeks. We can't do it without you!

                                                
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Independence Day!
                                             
  Much love and appreciation,

Summer of Shrugs
As I was looking for inspiration and a fast gift for my mother's birthday, I came across a lot of really nice shrugs. Shrugs are absolutely perfect for this warm weather and all those pretty sun dresses that are in style. Shrugs are great to have in chilly places like movie theaters and summer nights when you need a little warmth but not a hot sweater, Here are some of my favorite free patterns.
Easy Peasy Shrug
by Giddy Davies
"This is a very quick and easy knit, hence being called 'easy peasy' knitted shrug. Well, rather a minimal shrug, more of a shoulder warmer. You can also push one arm tube through the other and wear it as a scarf: two for one."
Shrug This
 by Toni Kayser Weiner
Pattern Description from One-Skein Wonders: 101 Yarn-Shop Favorites: "Shrugs are all the rage, and with this loosely knit version (three stitches per inch) you'll be able to 'shrug' off the time investment! The shrug is worked from the neck down and there's no sewing required."


Something Lacy Shrugby Vera Sanon
This shrug is a really lovely quick knit with lovely results and compliments any summer wardrobe.

The back portion is worked in a simple lace pattern and rectangular shape. Then, ribbing is knit onto the bottom edging and sleeve openings.
This shrug is a great project for a first-time lace knitter.

We offer a lot of different types of Cascade Yarns. You can pick a super light yarn or even go with something a bit chunkier. Cascade has you covered. Come out this week to see the new Summer/Fall yarns that are arriving. Their new colorways are spectacular.
