The Lamb's Pride shelves have been re- stocked - both bulky and worsted. The colors are delicious and waiting for your project. We have 2 new magazines at the shop as well. Perfect for browsing during the weekend.

Louisa Harding Yarn

The luxury yarns are beginning to arrive. We received the entire line of Louisa Harding and it is nothing shy of spectacular. You must come in and pet the yarn. There are ribbons, silk, hand dyed, angora... We have accompanying pattern books too.

This week's reading material

Stitch is a new magazine from Interweave with innovative sewing techniques. "It itches" is a pretty funny knitting comic book. The projects in Boutique Knits are really intriguing and different - great gift ideas.

Sorry to abandon you...

These past few weeks have been hectic. Preparing art for the Holiday Market left me pretty busy. We are back on track now.

The postman delivered 7 boxes of yarn on Saturday so stay tuned for photos. This included the entire Louisa Harding line, new Noro and chunky Debbie Bliss Donegal Tweed.

Classes are moving right along. Saturday we have a beginner kids knitting (adults can come too, if you dare!). The Sock class starts Wednesday. We've rescheduled the crocheted scarf class to the 18th. We also rescheduled the Louisa pouch class since the yarn just got here to December 1.

It's winter so come in and get started on a project.
