Halfway to the Holidays

Make the most of these last glorious weeks of summer! Our late summer-into-fall class list offers lots of quick and fun projects to give you a stitch up on your holiday gift knitting. Whether you prefer simple cowls, elegant hats, or contemporary Christmas stockings, we’ve got great choices for every skill level.

And while you lounge on the beach, your sofa or the last row of the airplane, get those lingering summer projects completed so you can enter our “What I Did This Summer” finishing event! Submit your project before August 31–the grand prize is a $100 gift certificate to Uncommon Threads.

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.

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,  Ravelry and now Instagram.
