Even as an adult I find it difficult to sleep on Christmas Eve. Yuletide excitement is potent caffeine, no matter your age. ~Carrie Latet

Sarah and I agree with this statement so we wanted to add our own little twist to the Yuletide excitement of the season. So starting today and going until Christmas Eve we will be ELFing people, so make sure you are checking your inbox. If you have been ELFed you will receive a coupon code to use in our shop.  Like a wrapped present the code will be a secret, you won’t know how much the discount is until you use it and each code will be different and unique. These codes will only be good until January 31st so find something you love.  
Since we are releasing new coupon codes we wanted to let anyone that was BOOed in October know that if you haven’t used your coupon code yet, don’t wait too long, these codes will be deactivated December 31st 2012, so don’t miss out on your discount.

We have a few other reminders that I’m sure some of you are anxious for. The first being the release of Narnia Chapter 2. The second half of this collection goes up on Monday December 17th, and has the more semi solid skeins and a variegated or two. Here is a sneak peak!!!
The other exciting reminder is for our Yarn AA Club members. We are excited to report that your December club colourway will be shipped out on Friday December 21st!!! We can’t wait for you guys to get them.

Our third and final reminder is also our most important. We wanted to let everyone know that with Christmas right around the corner, both Sarah and I will have family in town and we feel that it is important to spend time with our families this time of year. So with that said we wanted to inform everyone that our shop will be on a sending hiatus. Our last mailing day before Christmas will be Friday December 21st. Please note, if you purchase something from the shop after December 21st, it will not be shipped until the following Friday December 28th. Thanks guys.

Okay I have to say goodbye for now. There are only 10 day until Christmas and I still have 9 things on my list to knit. I don’t know about you but those numbers don’t really add up ahhhhhhh!!!
I hope wherever you are and whatever you are doing it bringe a smile to your face. I've said it once and I'm sure I will say it again....Merry Christmas Oh! Loopser!!!
