Now that (almost) all our new yarns are snuggled cozily in their shelves, I asked our staff to tell me about their favorites among the newbies and what they’re planning to knit or crochet. Whether you’re looking for fresh ideas or enjoy “imaginary knitting,” I hope you enjoy their entertaining tales of fiber infatuation.
For quick, last-minute gifts, look no further than the carefully edited selection of kits we’ve assembled for the holidays. Or join us for the last Small Project Saturday of 2013 on December 14, where the theme will be chunky cowls!
Please note the shop will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, and we will have shorter hours on Christmas Eve, December 26, and New Year’s Eve.
Have you heard? Our extended hours are now permanent! The shop is open every Sunday from 12 – 4 p.m., and late on Tuesdays until 7 p.m.
