Willow Cowl FO

For those of you that are on the fence about joining in on our KAL (or don't know what the Willow Cowl is) , I just finished up mine yesterday.

This is the 3rd Willow Cowl that I've knit, and I have to say that this one is my favorite! I used just under two skeins in Malabrigo Finito and it is the softest, warmest, squishiest cowl out of the bunch!

I can't say enough good things about the pattern and about the yarn. Both are wonderful. There's still plenty of time to join our KAL at the shop, so stop in if you have any questions or want us to get you started!

Willow Cowl KAL and Spinning Get Togethers!

We're wrapping up our Willow Cowl KAL with a wrap-up get-together scheduled for Monday, April 9th. Join us between 5:30 or 6 until 8 pm to show off your Willow Cowl, whether it is still on the needles or not! We'll be having a few snacks (please feel free to bring one to share), along with beverages too! (If you haven't started the Willow Cowl yet and are interested, check out our thread in our Ravelry group - there is still plenty of time to get one on the needles and maybe even finished by the wrap-up party, or stop on into the shop and we'll get you set up!).

We're also starting a Spinning At The Shop (SPATS) gathering on the first and third Monday evening of each month. I know many of you have some wheels getting dusty at home. Dust them off and bring them in for some spinning time (drop spindles too)! Let's start making some yarn again! Our first SPATS will be Monday, April 2nd from 6 - 8 pm. Join us.

As always, our events are No Fee, Just Fun!

Are you ready to learn a new weave structure? How about a lacey scarf?

We hope to introduce new weave structures each month or so, so you can expand on the capabilities of the rigid heddle loom.

New from Malabrigo!

A new yarn from Malabrigo has arrived at the shop - Finito!

Finito is a fingering weight yarn that comes from the finest Uruguayan wool available in commercial volumes. It only comes to market once a year in limited quantities. Available in 50 gram hanks of 200 yards, this is a luxuriously soft yarn of 100% superfine merino wool. You'll definitely want to wear this one next to your skin!

I'll try to get photos up in the next day or so, but we have it out on the shelves to fondle for our locals!
