Our Knitting corner has grown and taken over almost 1/2 of the shop! We have yarn everywhere. Brrrr, get ready for the next sweater weather! We’ve got fabulous yarns to make that dream project come true. Whether you’re looking for DK, worsted or bulky weight, our yarns from Plymouth, Schaefer, Debbie Bliss, Wool in the Woods, Lana Gatto and Noro will make that project special for years to come.
Looking to line up a few projects for this year? Below are some of the most popular ideas that will really get your needles clicking:
Have you seen the new models in the store of the popular Prayer Shawl? We have them up in several different yarns but my favorite is the new Schaefer Yarn- Sandra. These are great for Spring and a perfect stepping-stone after scarves and ponchos.
Surely you have jumped on the felting bandwagon but the newest craze is felted bowls. Everyone needs one to hold their yarn to keep it from slipping and sliding away! We have them in all sorts of yarns from Brown Sheep, Noro, Cascade and Lopi. Great for beginners who have already done clogs or purses. We do have several new felted purse models - one of my favorites is out of Schaefer Yarns, Miss Priss that is very colorful and variegated. Also another one of our new yarns is Universal called Deluxe Chunky and it is a great felting yarn as you can see in our Southwest felted bag. Of course we have all the old but goody patterns for clogs, hats, purses, vests, slippers, etc. as well as tons of yarn to choose from.
The scarf craze is still going strong and we have the best selection in town of novelty yarns for you to pick from to make the perfect accessory. Our cabled Ruana knit in Filatura Di Crosa Cambridge is a great throw since fitting is not a problem! Great beginner project and can be knit in other yarns.
Sock yarns are so wonderful and we have added new ones to our mix. The Spring and Summer colors are delicious and you can get a jump on making yours. I especially love the Happy Feet yarn from Plymouth and it is also a great weight for Shawls. We have new colors in Sockotta yarn and a great variety.
Baby items are so popular as we grandmothers will attest to. I can’t imagine a more perfect yarn for baby things and blankets than Plymouth’s Heaven and Oh My. They are so soft even if you don’t knit you will want to touch and feel these yarns. I think I want an afghan out of it is so soft and cuddly! Really pretty pastel colors and also some nice variegated baby colors.
Afghans, pillows, and throws are becoming more popular and we have several good patterns and books to interest you.
