Let's think soft and cuddly with a tiny bit of bling. Okay, let's think Firefly buy Lana Grossa.

This beautiful alpaca blend yarn knits quickly at 3.5 sts/inch. We're knitting a cape with a cowl but sweaters, hats and scarves are not out of the question. The colors are classic and they have the most beautiful deep wine color that you've ever seen.

The image just doesn't do this color justice. You have to see it to believe it.

We're knitting this yarn into this cape as I type. Just ask to see our progress. This is a very easy to knit pattern.

The newest trend in sock yarn colors: Arne & Carlos.

The Regia 4-ply Design Line by Arne & Carlos entices with traditional Norwegian effect in six extraordinary color combinations. The six newest colors are in stock. Here's a sample.

Great fair isle patterning without all of the work!

I know, the days are getting shorter and the nights a bit crisper. Hooray! Time to knit!

Fall yarns have been coming in quickly so that you can be prepared for the cold to come or to get a head start on gifts.

A luscious alpaca has arrived. There is 400 yards to a skein and it can be knit anywhere from 5 to 6.5 sts/inch. You have to touch this yarn to believe how soft Superfine 400 is.

We have a beautiful model of Sublime, Extra Fine Merino Worsted. This machine washable extra fine merino knits up beautifully and has a wonderful feel, so soft. The pattern book contains classic sweaters that are timeless.

Tomorrow, Arne & Carlos (you do know who they are, don't you?)

Here's a great vest pattern and it can be done with long sleeves if desired. The integrated pockets are a nice addition to the styling. This will be a stylish wardrobe basic for years to come.

The Wash 'N Wear yarn is super soft and is machine washable and dryable; however, we always advise 'flat to dry'.

The fall yarns have started to arrive! One of the newest is Kasha. It takes one ball to knit a lap blanket and two to make a throw. This is machine washable and makes a quick gift with one skein of 655 yards and knit on a 10.5 needle! Pattern is on the label.

Quick knit gift! We have four colors in stock.

We have our ducks in a row. How about you?

These little duckies are tape measures. You really need a duckie.

The Porch Party is fast approaching. Mark your calendars for Sept 19! It's going to be fun!

The good news is that the Front Porch has finally opened. They serve breakfast all day and open at 10 am. They're still working out the kinks but the food is great (so say the reviewer/knitters).

New yarns are arriving. We just received Trendsetter's Firefly yarn. This is a soft alpaca/wool blended chained yarn that is very soft and has just a bit of sparkle. We're going to be knitting a Cape and Loop from Lana Grossa's newest Look Book for fall/winter.

For those of who loved working with Lana Grossa's Lace Lux, it's back. There are great patterns on Ravelry but what comes to mind is the Vitamin D sweater. It would be gorgeous in this yarn.

We've got a great idea of what can be knitted with Kauni Effekt yarn. If you want a sweater with vertical stripes this sweater/pattern could be for you. When you stop by, just ask us.
