Greetings from space! Here’s what’s been happening around the shop!
So many great things arrived in the shop this week! We have a slew of new colorways of Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors. This excellent fingering weight packs a mighty 460 yards to the skein, perfect for knitting a generous shawl.
Hazel Knits Cadence is back in stock! This favorite hand-dye from the West Coast knits up like a dream, making for great sweaters and accessories alike. Stop in and check out one of Danielle’s recent completions.
Hedgehog Fibres Sock just arrived in a beautiful range of colorways. This sock yarn is amazing to work with. It’s blend of 90% superwash merino/10% nylon is so well spun it feels much closer to an MCN blend than what’s actually on the label. Grab some of this luxurious export while it’s fresh on the shelves.
