Frankenstorm is on its way! Are you ready to knit in the dark? We have a couple of battery powered OTT lights in stock to keep you knitting through any power outages that happen. Stop by before we close on Sunday if you want them as that’s when the storm is predicted to arrive (plus we’re closed on Monday and Tuesday).
Happy Knitting!

5 September 2012

We have been very busy placing new yarns on the shelf.

With the new yarns we have new models in the shop! 

From Cascade Yarns, we have a lovely sweater called “Weekend Classic”by Susie Bonnell knit with Lana D’Oro. This yarn is 50% Alpaca and 50% Wool which we’ve stocked in several lovely colors. This is a free pattern. There are great patterns for this yarn on the Cascade web site.

From Tahki Stacy Charles, we have the Anaïs Cowl-Collar Vest designed by Irina Poludnenko and knit in their new yarn called Adele. This refined tonal version of Ritratto has the added elegance of multicolored paillettes.
This vest only uses four balls of yarn for the large size!

Stop in and ask to see our new products. We’d love to show you.

I have written a pattern for a "swirl" scarf that uses Footprint yarn from Blue Ridge Yarns. I've decided to call it the "Re-Leaf" scarf. I'm in the process of knitting shop's model so I can't show you a finished piece. I will be washing and blocking the bit that I have knitted and will include a picture in the next blog. If you can't wait that long, stop by and I will show you what I have knitted so far. It is easy to knit because 95% of the knitting is garter stitch!

Hope  to see you soon.
