Update - December 14, 2016

It never fails.  Every year I scramble to finish what I planned to knit for people and then think of five more people I want to knit for.  If only I felt this fire in July...
See below my go-to projects for when I just have to make something for someone special.   To help you get them started, all the go-to yarns that go with them are on sale.  Now through Saturday, 15% off all in-stock Misti Alpaca Chunky, Malabrigo Mecha and Chunky, Ella Rae and Plymouth Superwash Chunky, and Classic Elite Palace.  
Below is our holiday schedule.  Please note that we will be open on Christmas and New Year's Eves.  Between now and then we can't wait to see your gift projects and help you complete them.
While my hands are furiously knitting for everyone else my wheels are spinning through ideas for a project for me after the holidays.  The designers are giving me loads of ideas and I will share them as soon as I can wrap up what I have!
Please enjoy your families.  We hope to see you soon,

Last Minute Quick Holiday Gift Ideas 2016

Super Fast, Serious Wow Factor
These last minute go-to ideas will give the gift of your love 
as they fly off your needles, 
ALL using any of this week's SALE yarns.
1.  Pony Tail/Messy Bun Hats:  Ok, so last week I saw one person wearing a pony tail hat and remembered that I'd seen a pattern for one before.  This week, they are all over Ravelry and people are asking for patterns all day.  I think Pinterest is to blame (or credit).  Here's a pattern that I like and a few more just for fun
2. Cowls:  I know you've made a million but I can wear a million and everyone loves them under coats, over their heads, atop their tee-shirts...

Update - November 7, 2016

October was an eventful month here and it ended with a bang.  We had Danielle and her mom, Raymonde, for Meet the Knitter night, our sixth anniversary happy hour, and a fun fit night, introducing CustomFit patterns and a trunk show! If that wasn't enough, a boat load of big boxes arrived last week bursting with beautiful fibers! 

Our heads are spinning with ideas and we're quickly trying to translate them to fun projects for the holidays.  Check out the new yarns and our ideas below.

All this comes with anticipation for the relief I know we'll all feel after Tuesday's elections.  Regardless of the outcomes, it's been an increasingly stressful campaign for all of us and I am looking forward the end of it.  At this point all I want is some soft yarn and my sticks and stitches. 

In that light, I'd like to offer the shop as a sanctuary and gathering spot for you to relax with other knitters and crocheters.  From now until Saturday, 11/12, we'll have hot cider and refreshments, the cozy fireplace, the company of fellow fiber lovers to help put behind you all the negativity we've experienced during this campaign.  We invite you to join us to share in our beloved craft and we'll offer a 10% discount on any purchases you make as well as our help and inspiration.

Please do come by if you can and sit with us for a while when you can.

See you soon,
