Hello from space! Here’s what’s been going on this week.
This week we received a shipment of SweetGeorgia Worsted in a whole host of gorgeous colorways. This machine-washable heavy worsted comes with 200 yards of 100% Merino per skein.
We are delighted to welcome a new book into this shop! Magpies, Homebodies, and Nomads: A Modern Knitter’s Guide to Exploring and Discovering Style is the new collection of 26 patterns from Cirilia Rose. Stop by the shop and check it out!
Try your hand at one of our workshops! The worst that happens? You learn new skills and walk away with a story of that time you cut your knitting on purpose. Our next workshops with seats available come courtesy of Olga Buraya-Kefelian. Learn three different methods to colorwork with the Colorwork Shawl on Saturday, February 28 ($75), or take it one step further and learn to steek (!) with Colorwork Steeked Cowl on Sunday, March 1 and 15 ($100).
