While you're out and about this tax-free weekend, be sure to stop by your LYS for supplies. Great Yarns in Raleigh has yarn and supplies on sale Saturday through Tuesday. With knitting in hand, you'll be all set for those long shopping lines!
Later next week, over in Chapel Hill, yarns, etc. -- newly moved from Carrboro -- is opening its new purple shop on Thursday, August 7. Get a sneak peek at the shop's blog.
