Pop Up Bag Event

Purchase a fun drawstring project bag and anything you fit inside is 20% off!

The bags are here Friday and leave at close on Saturday. It’s quick, don’t miss the fun!

We are kicking off spring with a KAL! Join us Friday, April 7th at 6pm (we are also hosting an Open Knit that night) as we cast on for Salix by Yumiko Alexander. We think Solo Lino – Linea Pura from Lana Grossa would make a fantastic choice for the pattern (and wonderful to work with too)!

This pattern is great for all knitters!

  • not fitted, no shaping
  • fairly simple to knit, yet exciting enough to keep your attention
  • great for a coverup on cool evenings this summer
  • knitting with others in a Knit-Along is a fantastic way to get support, encouragement and confidence to finish your project!

All knitters joining us get 10% off their yarn choice and their name in a raffle for store credit if they complete their Salix by the next Friday Open Knit (May 19th)

Doesn’t amaze you too? If you are looking to work a little magic, join us for the Intro to Lace Class this month at the shop. 2 skeins, 1 needle and a little knitting and you can have something beautiful too!

Boneyard Shawl

We have had a lovely Wingspan in the shop knit by Judy out of Kauni. The long color repeats of this yarn scream out for very special projects. Wingspan, all garter stitch, is a perfect choice to watch the colors appear.

Kelly dropped off her Boneyard Shawl by Stephen West last week using that same wonderful Kauni. This shawl, worked in stockinette and with a larger needle, gave Kauni a whole new look. At a much larger gauge, Kauni was able to have that “halo” and have much more drape.

Stop in the shop to see them both. Each so beautiful!

Featured Project: Mollie

The ladies at Kelobourne Woolens have published the most beautiful book for little ones, “Baby Collection”. Using many of the yarns that grace our shelves (Acadia, Tundra, Canopy fingering and Organik), you can work up an entire fall wardrobe for that special baby. Mollie was knit from Canopy fingering. Wonderful shaping allows it to fit warmly around your baby and an adorable cinch at the bottom keeps their toes warm! The addition of fun contrasting buttons at the top makes slipping it on baby quick.
The book is full of other wonderful patterns that you will want to add to your list!
