Shop KAL's (Knit Along)

In these part online, part in-shop events, you'll get the motivation and inspiration of working on a project with others without the cost or commitment of a class.  We'll kick it off in shop and have check in points when there will be a facilitator who provides assistance.   We'll set up on a discussion group on Ravelry where you can ask and answer questions, post your results, and watch everyone's progress.  There will even be prizes along the way! Join in the fun of these cooperative learning experiences.

Big Sister KAL

I started this sweater on my last vacation out of a need for a black cardigan. How did I not have one?  While it looks like a lot of plain stockinette stitch, the construction was so innovative and fun that I want to share it with you.  This is a top down sweater with the fit of a set in sleeve AND there are NO seams to sew!  Your collar and pockets will be knit as you go.  Your yarn for this project will be 10% off through May 31.

Emiliana KAL

Every time I look at this shawl, I want to cast on.  The high contrast colors are eye catching and perfect for wearing a neutral and a spectacular bright color around your face. The slipped stitch pattern is super easy even though it has serious wow factor! Your yarn for this project will be 10% off through May 31

Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful mamas.

I have my own mother and grandmother to thank for every skill my hands possess.  While neither of them really liked to knit, their achievements when it comes to all forms of needlework is awe inspiring. I constantly hear their words in my head

Maya by Berroco

15% off until  March 31

This super soft, worsted weight,  cotton & alpaca blend will work for so many of your light weight needs.  It's machine washable and the colors are soft and rich.  The chainette construction is interesting all on it's own but gives this yarn a nice structure, resulting in both softness and shape.  I can't wait to wear it!

Wine and Cheese Party

Update - March 5, 2016


Last month's celebration of Sasha's knitting accomplishments was a huge success and I had a blast.  I was thrilled to see so many of you come to be inspired the enormity of her collection and the variety of styles she creates.  I hope you'll be able to join us this Friday for our next event.  Joyce has her finger on the pulse of knitting fashion trends and her needles are constantly cranking out items I can't wait to model for her!  We'll have wine and cheese, of course, and some yummy desserts.  If you can join us, the company will be fabulous.   We'll have all her patterns and offer 10%  off any projects you'd like to start.
