Magic is in the Air

Hey Oh! Loopers,

Again it has been far to long since we last chatted. So many things have happened this summer that have made us here at Oh! Loops busy ladies. But getting back in the swing of things we are excited to tell you about what we have in store for all of you!

As you all know we currently have our "Refresh" and "The Entertainer" collections for sale in the shop. On Thursday August 1st our newest collection "Illusion" will make its debut.

Plus back by popular demand the Illusion collection will include stripes!! There has been a change made to the Oh! Loops stripes that we are super excited about.

**SAME GREAT STRIPES, ALL NEW & UNIQUE LOOK** Our stripes will now come caked instead of in a ball for two at a time ease. Because we pride ourselves on being unique we wanted to find a way to present our stripes in a way that was completely different than everyone else. The stripes will still generate the same wide, two color stripes that they did before.

So we just have one question for you............... Got Cake????


Our next big announcement is about the up coming Oh! Loops KAL!! We are teaming up with the wonderful owners of our LYS "A Grand Yarn" and a TBA podcaster on Ravelry for a 5 month long KAL.

If you participated in the last Oh! Loops KAL you know how much fun it was and how awesome the prize packages were. Well guess what guys......the prize packages are even better this time!!!!! We have teamed up with some fabulous sponsors that have donated some amazing prizes for you.

~Yarn from Oh!Loops
~Project Bags
~Stitch Markers from "Wool Work for Yarn" on Etsy
~Patterns from "Stephanie Dosen" of Tiny Owl Knits
~Coupon Codes
~Treats and Goodies
~Book Marks from JKorrell
~and so much more!!!!!!!!!!!

What is the theme of the KAL you ask???? We are so excited, like jump out of our skin excited. The next Oh! Loops KAL theme is.......................................................

Yep that's right a Harry Potter KAL!!! Because we love it. Sarah and I have been busy dying over 200 skeins of yarn for this collection. 100 new colourways will be released in the shop on September 1st. Later in August we will give you all a sneak peak. The collection will include semi solids, variegateds and stripes.

Starting on Thursday August 1st all of the KAL information, rules and details will be announced in the Oh! Loops group on Ravelry. Though the KAL does run from August through December the only months you will actually knit are October, November and December. As promised all will be explained so check the Oh! Loops group on Thursday for more information.

We also wanted to remind everyone that ordering deadlines for our yarn clubs are coming up. If you want to get in on the next three months of the Yarnie AA or Socks Anonymous club subscriptions, orders must be placed no later than Saturday August 31st. The 12 Months of color club subscription can be ordered at any time. If you order before the 15th of the month your first skein of 12 will be sent the same month you order, and if after the 15th the first skein of 12 would come the following month.  

In addition we wanted to give a little heads up that we will be offering something special to all of you the last week of August in honor of our 1 year Oh! Loopsary. So keep an eye out for that!

Okay guys I have to get back to work now :) It has been fun chatting with all of you. Hopefully we will chat again soon!
