Feel the Chill…

…if only in your imagination. Fall is here and we’re ready to enjoy the knitting-est season of the year! Our fall class list offers lots of techniques and tips to make you a better knitter, crocheter or weaver and create memorable pieces for yourself and loved ones. Be inspired by our Finishing Wall of Fame to see which patterns and yarns worked well for others.

Nothing gets me in the mood for fall like new pattern books and cozy fall yarns. Rowan 58 arrived recently, along with gorgeous new yarns: Hemp Tweed, Big Wool Silk, and Brushed Fleece. Take a look at all our new fall yarns, or browse the list of yarns in stock. Starting October 1, we have some amazing yarns on clearance, with enough quantity in stock for cozy fall sweaters.

Open Knit/Crochet 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,  Ravelry and now Instagram.
