Fine Yarns are Summer Favorites

Now that the calendar says it’s officially summer, it’s the perfect time to try some of our lighter-than-air yarns. Our selection of Shibui yarns just expanded to include Cima, Silk Cloud and Staccato as well as Twig, Linen and Pebble.  Fingering weight cotton is also in the spotlight with the incredibly soft Summerlite 4ply from Rowan, and delicious gradient yarn Tahiti from Schachenmayr. Take a look at all our new spring/summer yarns, or browse the list of yarns in stock.

This month you can get gorgeous color and cool fiber at a great price! New yarns have been added to our summer clearance sale running throughout July or until stock runs out.

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. In July, show some love for plant-fiber yarns with Sherri’s Wool You or Won’t You? Shawl KAL. Check out our summer 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.
