Happy Holidays and a New Class Schedule

Our new class schedule is available for viewing and printing now!  In it you will find some perennial favorites like our regular 5-week classes, the Oops and Sock Classes, and a new one, the Lined Mitten class, which results in a super cuddly and warm mitten while teaching you lots of techniques.

We will be closed December 24 through December 26 for Christmas, and December 31 and January 1 for the New Year.  All of us at the shop are wishing you warm and wonderful holidays and look forward to helping you with lots of fun knit and crochet projects in the New Year!

Fast and Fabulous

This might be the easiest, most luxurious gift you could give yourself or someone else you love!  It requires just three balls of Berroco’s glorious Andean Mist (alpaca and silk) used double so it works up quickly.

Come in and check out how cozy this feels–like a cloud, but warm–and how beautiful the new colors that just arrived are.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Just thought we’d let you all know that we’ll be closed this Sunday, May 14 for Mother’s Day.  We wish all the moms a happy celebration.

We have really flung ourselves into spring and summer knitting this year–a direct result of how great the new yarns and designs for this spring are.  Stop by and check them out–ask us to show you what we are knitting and crocheting for spring/summer ourselves, and the many projects we’ve lined up but haven’t begun yet!
