Light + Long DK

This yarn was love at first touch! I met this yarn a few weeks ago at a little LYS get together in Seattle. A few of the bigger yarn companies/distributors came together at a hotel in Seattle to show off the latest and greatest from their lines. And this slow/subtle color change along with tweed and the insane softness captured my heart immediately. This wool-free yarn makes beautiful sweaters & shawls. I knit up the Fresh Berries top by Universal Yarn. It was a quick and easy knit that would be perfect for a first sweater (just remember to swatch!!!) You can find ALL the colors of this yarn in-store (we are waiting for the professional photos of the 16 colorways...when they are received we will list this yarn online!)

How Does This Work? Interchangable Tips Key

With the busy-ness of the yarn crawl, I totally forgot to continue with my "How Does This Work" Series! So here is another one for you! Around 20 years ago, I purchased my first pair of interchangeable knitting needles. I still remember them. Clear, plastic and a pretty large gauge (I wanna say a US10). I was so excited to give them a try, but after my first use I wanted to chuck them in the garbage. They must have been broken or something...maybe that is why they were in the clearance section? I went back to the yarn shop to ask about them...and walked away with some very important knowledge... That little curly piece of metal that came with my interchangeable needle, wasn't just an extra piece of junk...it was the KEY to getting my needle tips to stay on the cord!!! I was instructed to do use this key every time, instead of just using my fingers to tighten the tip. This ended my frustration with interchangeables. Sure, there is the occasional tip that would still come l

Kids Klub

In June we will be rebooting Kids Klub. I have tried this at a few different times and could never get the right mix of perfect time for parents and perfect time for me....but I think we finally found it!!!! Kids Klub is a group for ten to 18 year olds who get together and knit/crochet. A teacher is available to help with whatever project they are working on, or as a group they can choose to make the same thing. All levels (even BRAND NEW) are welcome! This group is by appointment only, no drop in available. It will be MOST Wednesdays from 4:30 to 5:30. I say most, because there will be some Wednesdays where I am not available due to travel or yarn related craziness!  You can view the schedule HERE Each session is $15. If you schedule 4 sessions at one time, you will receive a $10 shopping credit on your account!
