We will be closed on Memorial Day... But don't fret! We still have our Rowan Secret Sale on through Sunday. There is still some great buys left on all the Yorkshire Tweeds, Chunky Print, Plaid, and Big Wool Tuft. (40% is a healthy discount, wouldn't you say?) So don't forget to stop by on your way out of town this weekend.

The long awaited and wonderfully fabulous Destiny Circulars by Lantern Moon have arrived. They cost $24 a pair and come in sizes 4-11. I'm working with them right now, and they're just as dreamy as their original straight needles. Come check 'em out!

Take a class, have a blast!

What a great summer project and a fabulous original design. This bag was designed by Laura Irwin who also teaches the class on how to make it. You will learn cables, shaping, button holes, and all kinds of tricks. Class starts Monday, June 5. Call us at 503. 226.8500 to sign up!

Secret Spring Rowan Sale

So, I just found out that many Rowan Yarns have been discontinued. Now, normally I would wait until our sale in August, but I thought some of you might appreciate a mid-season treat. So beginning next Tuesday and continuing through Sunday we will be putting some Rowan on Sale! This includes, but is not limited to, Chunky Print, Big Wool Tuft, Plaid, Yorkhsire Tweed 4-ply, Aran and Chunky. Sound good? We will see you on Tuesday!

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

In case you didn't already know it, Lint has a great selection of gifts for Mother's Day. I'll highlight a few of them here so you can arrive armed with ideas!These sweet little beaded stitch markers are made right here at Lint! Each set of 5 is one of a kind and cost only $10 with case included.

This new basket from Lantern Moon is sooo wonderful. It makes me think beach, but Mom might think great project transportation and containment. This gem, called the Summer Weave Tote is just $38.
These little felted flower kits make a great gift and inspire some Summer knitting. $11-$15.
2 more amazing bags from Lantern Moon. The Multi-Stripe and the Provence. If you are familiar with this company, then you know how good these are. $45 & $36.
A little set of notecards perhaps? Or a sweet little basket? $10-$12 and $17.
These pouches by Della Q are durable and sweet. They come in 4 fabrics with a zipper at the top. $12 & $16 with matching needle cases for $40.
Asciano FiberArts makes these gorgeous hand-turned crochet hooks out of rosewood. Each size has a different pattern on the top. These make us want to crochet everything we see. $30.

And who could forget the amazing Denise Circular Needle Set. All the lengths you need in sizes 5-15. Still a steal at just $50.

Well there you have it. Some great options for Mom. Don't forget, we also have gift certificates!
