Spring Fever

The first signs of spring are everywhere, from irresistible new yarns to beautiful sweater samples for warm weather. You’ll be seduced by the elegant spring yarns from S. Charles Collezione on our shelves now, and the stunning, yet wearable, designs in Rowan Magazine 55.

Starting April 1, save 30 – 75% off discontinued yarns during our Spring Cleaning Clearance Sale! Select patterns, books and shop samples will also be deeply discounted.

Small Project Saturday is back on April 12 and May 10 with easy, fun and practical projects you can finish in a jiffy! Participation is free.

Push your boundaries this spring: Jean’s new Brave New Knitters KAL series guides novice knitters through Tin Can Knits’ Simple Collection patterns. Try your hand at weaving with Laura, and introduce knitting to the next generation of stitchers with The Knit Club for kids.

Please note: the shop will be closed on Monday, May 12 and Tuesday, May 13 for a much-anticipated carpet replacement.

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.

Be the first to learn about new yarns, sales and classes! Sign up for our email newsletter–we do not share our list with anyone. You can also find us on Facebook and Ravelry.
