It's Official!

Have you seen the forecast for this week?  Check out those low temps, and the high temps aren't all that warm either.  You know what that means, right?  It is officially KNITTING SEASON!

Come on in and pick out your next project - hats, cowls, mittens, fingerless gloves, scarves, sweaters - it is time!  Winter is just a blink away and we will NEED our winter survival gear!

We received a few new arrivals this past week - here's a highlight of some of them:


What you see here are some seriously great self-striping hanks of sock yarn!  3 - 4 - 5 and even 6 stripes depending on the colorway.  Knitters Nightmare Batty Sock Yarn is here (but going fast).  This is 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon with 400 yards per skein.  And one of the best parts about this yarn (besides the spectacular colors that you really do need to see in person) is that it comes to us from a LOCAL DYER!

Another great new arrival are some fabulous leather closures for sweaters, shawls, cowls, scarves - anything that you want to keep closed.

I LOVE this product.  Those that know me, know that I love to knit sweaters.  I even love seaming and blocking sweaters, but I don't always get around to sewing on the buttons for some reason.  Case in point - the above sweater was all finished, seamed and blocked in August and then sat in my finishing pile waiting for a button and icord button loop.  Enter these great closures, and now I'm wearing that sweater!

We have two styles available - the one pictured above and a smaller curved closure.  Both are available in chocolate and black leather.

Stop on in to see all the new yarns and goodies for this season - with more coming all the time!

Worth Repeating!

This is somewhat of a repost from a previous day, but I thought it is worth repeating since our first order of this product flew out the door so fast that some of you didn't get to see it -

MALABRIGO NUBE, their spinning fiber, is BACK in stock!

I'm very happy to say that the fiber braids in this new order are much more loosely braided.  I think there was some felting/compression going on in their first order.  This batch looks much nicer!  Check out the colorways that we currently have available here.  

Also in this shipment are more colors of Malabrigo Sock, Malabrigo Rios, Malabrigo Worsted and Malabrigo Rasta!  

You know what we've always said..........?
MMMMMMMM.......Malabrigo!
