Join us this Saturday afternoon....

We are excited to announce we will be hosting a representative from Hand Painted Knitting Yarns this Saturday, November 29th from 12-5pm. She will be bringing trunk show models and will be there to tell you all about this truly artistic line. In honor of this show, we will be offering 10% off the Giant Skein kits purchased during the trunk show. Come and be educated and more importantly, inspired, during this special event.

We also just received our reorder of Flat Feet from Conjoined Creations - finally! They have become so popular, we waited for them to catch up with their orders. If you haven't seen these, they are fascinating! Super-portable since you knit them directly from the flat fabric, unraveling bits at a time. We also just received their new book, Flat Feet Book One: Socks, which has some creative patterns to use with this exciting yarn.

Madelinetosh Sock is here and Ozark Handspun...

We just received 31 gorgeous colors of Madelinetosh Sock - it has a rabid following and now we have it. Once you see the truly artistic colorways in handpainted multicolor, "glazed", and "somewhat solid", you will become a fan yourself.

We also just received some new colors of Ozark Handspun Opulent. We also have two trunk show models with free patterns to inspire you.

Brown Sheep reorders are still on the way - if you need a specific color, feel free to email us with your request and we can call you when it arrives.

Misti Alpaca Chunky is back....

We just received 9 colors of Misti Alpaca Chunky with 3 more on backorder. These sell out so quickly we always joke that we should just leave them in the boxes rather than use shelf space!

Last week we received an order of notions and needles from Clover, Bryspun, Susan Bates, and some rosewood double points. We also have quite a few new yarns and patterns such as....

From Handpainted Knitting Yarns: gorgeous new sock yarn Merino Tencel, lovely Merino Lace in both soft and vibrant colorways, and two new 20 oz. Giant Skein kits with a free jacket pattern. The Giant Skein kits come in a smaller 10 oz. size as well and would make a wonderful holiday gift for any yarn-lover.

From Schaefer Yarns: new "Sock The Vote" yarn in Michelle, Hillary, Cindy, and Sarah colorways. Also, some new patterns for lace, baby items, and socks.

From Nancy Lindberg: a variety of her classic hat, mitten, glove, sweater, and sock patterns. Many of them have options for more than one gauge so these are patterns you will use again and again for years.

From Berroco: we finally received our Comfort Sock - great colors, a fantastic price, and vegan/vegetarian friendly!

Coming soon - Brown Sheep reorders and some new Ozark Handspun yarns.
