In case you're not on our mailing list (shame, shame!), here's what we highlighted in the Winter Newsletter. We don't send out a lot of emails to our list, only contacting you when we have something really important to say. You can join the list here.
Carol joined us this fall and is a fantastic addition to our store, bringing with her both expert knitting experience and at least 25 years in the knitting & needlepoint community. Join her on Sundays for her Knit-Along With Carol afternoons - bring whatever is on your needles (or hooks)!

Raging Wool on the Web
The Google folks stopped by in December to capture us on film. If you Google us, you can now see our new, fancy, 360-degree store view online. Check it out here.
Also, Alice was the subject of a short video produced by University of Miami student Zhou Fang, who wanted to profile women in business. We're so excited to see Alice in the spotlight for all her hard work and love of helping customers. Click here to see the video.
Our Group in Ravelry is our home away from home. If you love to keep track of your projects there, find new ones, research yarns, or just enjoy being part of a site that is entirely about yarn and fiber arts, come visit us in our Ravelry group! There, we talk about what's on our needles, what KALs or CALs we should do next, answer questions, and share shop news. Visit the Raging Wool Ravelers here.
Most recently, some of us participated in the Scoreboard KAL from Skacel Yarns. We're showing off our finished cowls on Ravelry, so come take a look!
