Our winter class list is filling up with fabulous new techniques and projects. We’re excited to host Faina Goberstein, brilliant designer and co-author of The Art of Slipstitch Knitting, for two workshops on Sunday, March 6. Explore the intriguing textures you can create with slip-stitch patterns, then try your hand at brioche cables.
While you can see our new fall/winter yarns online, the best way to appreciate the glorious sheen of Malabrigo Mora or the exquisite softness of Shibui Maai and Dune is to come in to the shop to see and touch for yourself!
