In the Mood for Color

Take any pattern from basic to breathtaking with the gorgeous color palettes of beautiful gradient yarns and color-drenched handpaints! We have fresh stock of Filatura di Crosa Minitempo, Misti Alpaca Pima Silk as well as Freia Bulky and Merino Silk Sport. Take a look at all our new spring/summer yarns, or browse the list of yarns in stock.

We’re excited to host Rowan designer Martin Storey for two mornings of workshops and a book signing on June 2 and 3! Find out more about his workshops on beaded cables and Fair Isle, then give us a call to reserve your space–this opportunity won’t come around again soon.

Knitting is at its best when you have a cohort of friendly knitters sharing the journey! Stephen West is one of our favorites, so this spring/summer we’re offering a KAL of Stephen West Classic Shawls as well as his elegant and versatile Batad shawl. Check out our spring classes for more inspiration and new skills to learn.

Open Knit Night is every Tuesday evening from 6 – 8 p.m. Take a couple of hours for yourself each week and knit or crochet with fellow enthusiasts.

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.
