Square deal.

Utica Square is having a sale. Seriously. As a lifelong Tulsan, I cannot remember a single time that the entire roster of Utica Square stores simultaneously offered up discounts on their precious merchandise. And yet it is happening. Everyone from Ann Taylor to Williams-Sonoma (that's as far as they go in the alphabet) is having some sort of sale. And that means us, too. Far be it from me to go against the will of the brilliant Mr. Walt Helmerich.

We hadn't really planned on a sale, since this is high season for us (we've been crazy-busy with this freezing weather)...but what the hey.

The Square-wide sale is this Friday and Saturday, February 16th & 17th. We are going to offer you, dear loyal Loops customers, a "V.I.P. Preview Day" on Thursday, February 15th. For starters, we will have everything on the Hot Loops wall 20% off, in order to make way for the next Hot Loops wall, debuting in March. There's Muench, Classic Elite, Colinette, even some Alchemy on this wall to your right as you enter the store. Also, there will be 40% off select yarns throughout the store. We'll have some Rowan, Noro, Louisa Harding, Jo Sharp, Muench, Plymouth...lots of really good stuff.

Remember our new hours, 11-8 weekdays and 10-5 Saturday. Phone orders and web orders will be accepted. ALL Hot Loops yarns are currently featured on the website, so get ready to click 'n' save!

Now how about a couple of photos...first, when I was loading some new photos, up from the depths of digital camera world arose some long-lost pics from the San Diego Show. Gina H. was distraught to hear that I seemed to have lost this picture of her and Ellen with the legendary Sally Melville. Well Gina must be livin' right, because it just re-appeared out of nowhere:

Coincidentally, Gina will be teaching a Sally Melville linen sweater in March. Look for the new class list to be up on the site in the next day or two.

Here is a cool picture of the Met Life blimp that appeared between two buildings in San Diego as we emerged from the convention one day:

And to all of you who wrote to offer condolences on my hat fiascos, I offer my heartfelt thanks...and this picture of C bangin' the drums and wearing her NEW Art Yarns Supermerino modular hat. It really is a fun pattern, especially when you use the dang yarn the pattern calls for! Lesson learned:

See you Thursday!
