I'm excited to get started on my Happy Cowl today. It's a fun project with a rhythmic stitch pattern that's easy to memorize. Designed for Ewe Ewe Yarns Wooly Worsted, it's worked on a size 10 needle.
Jenny and I were talking about this yarn yesterday, and how much we like it. The name is deceptive, because it doesn't feel "wooly" at all. A soft merino fiber, it has a worsted spin and a smooth hand that's a pleasure to use. It's not the glamour girl yarn that you see on the shelf and simply have to have because it's so jaw-droppingly gorgeous. It's more the girl-next-door BFF kind of yarn that's always happy and tons of fun to be with. You never get tired of Wooly Worsted's clear colors and round bouncy construction that really shows off your stitches. Like all best friends, Wooly Worsted is low-maintenance - happy to go for a spin through the washer and a tumble in the dryer. Perfect for kids and babies, guys, and anything you want for everyday wear.
Come get to know Wooly Worsted - you might just meet a new best friend today!
Sunday, February 19the from 1-4 p.m. Bring or buy, US Size 10 circular needles - 24" or 32". See you then!Continue reading
The snow was beautiful and cozy, but I'm ready to get out of the house. Although my driveway is still covered, the main roads are clear and dry, and we will be open and ready for business today! Good thing too, because we have two fabulous projects happening - first is the Messy Bun Hat Crochet along.
If you are comfortable with single and half double crochet, come whip up this little project that went viral a week or so ago - everyone wants one, and you can make it in almost know time. That's the beauty of crochet - it's so fast it feels like instant gratification. Not quite there with the crochet techniques? Sign up for our awesome beginning crochet class
Second is this beautiful infinity cowl "That Nice Stitch" in Dream in Color Classy with Cashmere - Just one skein is all it takes.

Join Jenny for a fun afternoon.Continue reading
And by this Sunday, I mean tomorrow. We're doing the Stanza Cowl in new Shibui Drift. This is a simple pattern with the sole purpose of showing of a spectacular fiber. Drift is a spectacular fiber. A luxurious heavy worsted weight blend of merino and cashmere, Drift has a velvety hand and a cozy plumpness that's heaven to knit. Everything about this fiber is ultra luxe. It's like heavy cream - rich and decadent.
The colors are clear and saturated - I love this red. The picture doesn't really do it justice, but it's a bright true red - like a good lipstick --perfect for a winter.
The other colors are pretty great too, and of course the cream, my favorite, is always elegant.
Drift is the perfect fiber to put right next to your skin, so you'll love knitting it, and you'll just love having it around your neck - so cozy and beautiful. It's a super quick knit too, so if there's anyone deserving on your holiday gift list, knitting Stanza in Drift would be a treat for yourself and them!
Join us tomorrow at 1 p.m. to get started.Continue reading
