Summer Yarn Sampling

We’re throwing an impromptu summer yarn sampling from 1pm till 3pm on Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10.  We have selected 5 yarns for your sampling pleasure and we’d love to have you knit or crochet with them and give us some feedback.  The sampling is free, but space and supplies are limited, so please give us a call and let us know if you would like to attend and on which day.  When you call we’ll fill you in on the recommended needle and/or crochet hook sizes to bring.

These are some of our favorite yarns to work with for this time of year, and we’d love to introduce them to you!

Memorial Day and Summer Fiber Fun

Warm weather has arrived, and we have a great selection of breathable, cool-to-the-touch fibers for summer knit and crochet projects, and some fabulous patterns to go with them–tee-shirt and tank style sweaters, shawls for those over-airconditioned restaurants and theaters, and more.  Memorial Day–with the whole summer stretching out ahead of us–is a great time to choose and start your summer knit/crochet projects.  I also know a few really organized people who are starting their fall/winter/holiday projects, but that’s another story!

We’ll be open Saturday and Sunday (May 26 and 27) but closed on Monday, Memorial Day.  Some of these spring/summer yarns are selling like lemonade on a hot day, so hurry in while they last!

Summer Class Schedule!

Our new class schedule is ready, and there’s lots of fun to be had.  We’ve brought back our sock class and our oops! class by popular demand, and added a finishing clinic as well as a really exciting lace class that will gradually increase your skills as you progress through it’s sections–resulting in a sumptuous shawl.  It is made in sport weight yarn rather than lace weight, so no need to fear working with spider-web like yarn!  If you are interested in the Oops! class you should sign up soon–it begins May 26th.

Happy Mother’s Day

We’ll be open this Sunday, May 13, Mother’s Day!  We hope you’ll make us a part of this special day–we’d love to see you, give you a tour of the fantastic yarns we’re loving for spring/summer knitting, and fill you in on the fun specialty classes that are in the works for this summer.

Stop by for a cup of tea, a look around, and if your schedule permits, a little communal knitting/crocheting.

Local Yarn Shop Day!

The first-ever Local Yarn Shop Day takes place this Saturday, April 21st, and we’re inviting you to come in and celebrate with us so we can thank you for supporting local brick and mortar yarn shops.  We’ll have refreshments available, and some gifts with purchase (some are limited quantity, so come in early!).  In addition, Mountain Colors has created a special “fade” cowl kit just for the occasion, and we will have them available for sale!

We hope you can make it–it just won’t be a party without you!

Getting Crafty for Valentine’s Day

You’re invited to a tea and Valentine’s Day crafting event with us on Sunday February 11 from 1pm to 4pm!  We’ll serve some sweets, brew a special Valentine’s Day tea, and knit/crochet some hearts for gifts, embellishments, and decorating.

Think about some little hearts to decorate your hat, or some with buttonholes in the middle–that could turn any sweater or coat into a special Valentine’s Day garment!  then there are sachets, pincushions, garlands, coasters–the possibilities are only limited by our imaginations.

Bring your own favorite heart-shaped patterns to inspire others, or check out the ones we’re crushing on.  We have lots of great red, pink, and variegated yarn available for purchase for your knit/crochet pleasure!

We’ll provide the refreshments, some skinny ribbon for hanging loops, and some lavender oil for sachets.  Let’s have some fun!
