|The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines "alchemy" as a power or process of transforming something common into something special.|
That's exactly what Austin and Gina Wilde have achieved with Alchemy Yarns, their very special new venture I discovered at TNNA last month.

In the Boutique: Bo Strikes Back
Our Little Bo Peep pin has been envious of all the attention her glasses-clad Knitting Lady cousin has received, so this week I offer her at 15% off her normal price. Enjoy!

B&N Breaks the Mold
This month Barnes & Noble made knitting history when it introduced knitting kits in bookstores nationwide. Each "Suss Knit Kit" features a design by Suss Cousins as well as the yarn and needles to complete the project.
Patterns are for simple garb such as ponchos, scarves and hats for women and teens, plus sets for babies. Prices range from $29.99 to $49.99. It's not much, but it's a start!
March Newsletter Subscriber Prize
If you're lucky, you're starting to see the first signs of spring. That means it's almost time to go outside and clear the garden, which is why this month I'm picking one newsletter subscriber to win a $50 gift certificate to the Gardener's Supply Company. Simply stay subscribed and you could be picked.
As always, I thank you for your readership and your support. Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the forums.
