Celebrate the 4th of July with Starry Patriotic Colors


The Second Continental Congress adopted its declaration of freedom on July 2, 1776, and adopted the Declaration of Independence two days later, on July 4th.  In a letter to his wife on July 3rd, founding father John Adams said of the event: 
John Adams
I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.
(So what the heck is a "Shew"?  It is an old fashioned spelling for "Show."  He is referring to plays, skits and musical concerts.)

John Adams also said:  
And what better way to celebrate than with Dream in Color's Starry yarn - it sparkles!

Ok, so he didn't really say that.  But perhaps he would have, if Starry had been around in 1776!

So what is Starry?  Starry is Dream in Color's superwash merino wool yarn with just a sliver of silver Lurex filament spun into it.  The silver adds a touch of shimmer and glamour.  The superfine yarn will make your shawlette shimmer like an angel's wings and add twinkle to your toes in a pair of socks.

As if that's not enough of a reason to set off fireworks, you'll love the patriotic color names of the festive limited edition yarn:

Not what you're looking for?  Not to worry.  We're highlighting the limited edition patriotic colors this week, but the shimmery Starry shines in 35 different colors to compliment any project in need of a bit of pizazz!

It's like a party on your needles!  Come on in to let us help you pick out a patriotic project to knit with Starry yarn.  Remember, we are open our regular hours on the 4th of July - there will still be plenty of time to have a picnic and watch the fireworks after we close at 5 pm - and our website is always available 24/7.


Happy 4th of July, and Happy Knitting . . .  Amy
