HOORAY! It's finally here.

The trunk show for Ornamental Knits beaded Christmas Ornaments has finally arrived. I will have the trunk show through November.

We didn't even have up the display and the kits were flying out the door. So, if you wanted to see the kits you better hurry down to the shop before all of the  "good" ones are gone. Well, they're all good, let's just say your "favorite" ones are gone.

There is still time for me to order kits if your favorite kit has gone missing. But, as the clock counts down there will be less and less of a chance of getting the kit you most wanted.


This Saturday September 28, 10 - 5 pm. Tea and cookies will be served. It look like there will be great weather for this weekend so please do come down and have a great time. The porch is just a great place to sit and knit and make new friends, renew friendships and just watch the world go by.

A new book arrived today along with new yarn.

Jean Frost has written a new book about stitches. The book Stitches for Tailored Knits explains how stitches can be used for a structured fabric. These are not new stitches, they're just presented in a way to explain how they are used to create a fabric of knitting.

More new yarn has arrived! Rowan has a new hand-dyed sock yarn. This yarn is a blend of wool, mohair and silk with just a touch of nylon for durability. This is yarn is hand painted in breathtaking colors that just make it unique. Because it is hand painted the yarn stripes randomly.

If you wish to read about how and where this yarn is made, please follow this link.

Okay, I know that I have dedicated customers. But, I never knew how dedicated until Melinda showed me this:
(If you can't figure out what you're seeing, it's the shop logo as a tattoo.)

Want to take the Swarovski Crystals class and you think it's too late to order crystals? Well, it's not! We have several colors of crystals in stock - not every color, but we have some of the basic colors.

So don't let the two week order time scare you. Stop by the shop and choose a yarn and pick the crystals that match. Grab your size nine needles and you're ready to go.

See you next Sunday!

New yarn arrived today!

We have Berroco's Brio. Each brilliantly dyed colorway of this thick and thin wool blend is infused with glittering metallic strands that are completely soft to the touch.

This is a super bulky yarn that knits at 2.5 stitches to the inch. Great for hats, and scarves. This will  add a bit of pizazz to a gloomy winter day.
