Life’s a Stitch!
It’s that wonderful time of the year again when the rushed gift knitting season has passed, and the cold, snowy days and nights are perfect for hours and hours of cozy knitting. There are so many projects in mind! Oversized cable sweaters to keep the chill away made out of Galway or Ultra Alpaca or Homestead, or how about incredibly soft and warm mittens out of Ultra Alpaca Light or Galway Sport or Malabrigo Rastita lined with Kidsilk Haze or Rowan Fine Lace that will make brushing the snow and ice off of your car fun again. Then there’s all of that beautiful new Kauni just waiting for a romp in a colorwork shawl or cowl, and the beckoning array of colors in Encore, Galway, Rowan Pure Wool Worsted and Plymouth Superwash Merino inviting needles, hooks and hands to create works of art to comfort and be cherished for generations like The Great American Afghan or Kaffe Fassett’s Mystery Knit Along Afghan. Not to mention all of the new and lovely sock yarns and this seasons delightfully soft, bulky and even shimmery quick to knit yarns promising beautiful results and instant gratification… so many projects, so little time!
Whether you are finally ready to cast on that special warm and woolly project you’ve been waiting for the right time to start, or you are dreaming of spring and ready to pick a new yarn and project to get a head start on your warmer weather wardrobe and knit your way to the new season, we invite you to come in, immerse yourself in the colors, textures, and shop samples, inspire and be inspired. New inventory is arriving daily as we receive re-orders and new colors of your favorite yarns as well as the earliest shipments of new spring yarns from Berroco, Rowan and Plymouth.
With so many newly scheduled classes, workshops, and exciting events coming, we hope you can join us for a new technique, a special project, and all of the fun. Be sure to check out the details on our Not Just Socks Club, needle felting workshops with Amy Brand and our Astoria Sock KAL with A Hundred Ravens mini skein kits!
As always, please feel free to come in for help, a nice chat or just to sit and knit for a bit. We are always happy to see you, excited and inspired by the beautiful projects you create, and we look forward to just catching up.
Happy Knitting Always!
Karen, Linda, Sarah & Van
