JoJo Land

Another new yarn in the store is JoJo land. This comes in 3 weights - lace weight, dk and worsted. These are slowly striping yarns in great color combos. There is also a cashmere and silk/cashmere blend. Start thinking about those gifts that need to be made.

Spud & Chloe

We have begun the annual migration on fall yarn into the store. Spud & Chloe is one of the first to arrive. These are yarns supplied by Blue Sky Alpacas. The colors are great, it comes in 3 weights and they are machine washable. We also have patterns for your browsing to match the yarn.

Along with Spud & Chloe we have also increased our Blue Sky collection. This yarn is so soft.

New Plymouth Yarn

The newest shipment of Plymouth yarn has arrived. We have everything from a fun cotton to a recycled cashmere. We also have the patterns to go with the yarn. Come find a project.

Square Needles

We now carry square needles from Kollage. I've tried both the straights and double points and love them. I'm able to maintain my gage but my grip seams to loosen a little. They are metal so those of you that are rough on your smaller wooden needles might want to give these a try.

Chemo Caps

On Monday nights from June 21 until July 19 we will be knitting and crocheting chemo caps for the American Cancer Society. Any caps made can be donated to the local Relay for Life event that happens July 24. They will sell or auction them for the cause.

I'll provide the patterns and the space you provide the hooks, needles and yarn. Come in from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Spring Classes

At long last I have finished the class schedule. Stop in and pick one up.

Did you know...

We have a ton of single sheet patterns for sale. If you don't want to purchase a complete book just browse through our many pattern binders and I'm sure you'll find something you like. These are just a sampling of the most recent additions.

What a fun company! We met these ladies at TNNA. Sale of their yarn helps support women's groups in Indonesia and Nepal.
