August 1st This is Happening!!

Noone was real crazy about the Naima Jacket, so we switched it up. This tunic pattern is specially designed for the Lang Splash yarns (on sale this week).

Laura has chosen the blue (shown), Terrye is going with the copper pennies color and Karen, as usual, is going rogue and finding her own path. So far she’s got a combination of alpaca and something else picked out. Whatever she ends up choosing, it will be gorgeous!

Stop by the shop, get your pattern and your yarn and let’s get knitting. (I’m all about knitting a sweater if it will make me look like this!)

August 1 we’re kickin’ it off!!

We Will Ship It!

If you need a specific yarn, let us know. We’ll ship it to you for a small charge. If it’s not in stock, we’ll order it in (providing it’s not discontinued) and ship it off as soon as possible.

 Do you know we offer a blocking service?

Bring in your items that need to be blocked and we can help you out. We’ve also got lace wires so those exquisite shawls will look even better than in the picture!

Here’s the deal on this…

If you buy the yarn from us, we will block it for you. If you get your yarn somewhere else, we will HELP you block it at no charge, but it will have to depend on time available.

In store sales….
