Happy June 2018!

June 9th is World Wide Knit in Public Day! Have you got your summer knitting and crocheting lined up? Let us help. We are overflowing with fresh ideas and fun classes. The month of June means half of 2018 is in the can, so let’s get going. Make something! See you soon!
 
 If you haven’t been following us on Instagram or Facebook, you might have missed all the crazy boxes of yarn flowing into the shop in the last few weeks. Tosh Merino Light rolled in yesterday and their new color line up is amazing. WYS sock yarn (West Yorkshire Spinners),  which is grown, spun and dyed in the UK, arrived as well. Come check out the bird and spice color themes.
 
Looking for something pretty and light? Maybe Linen? You have to see the soft colors of our recycled linen by Trendsetter. Judy knitted up an Easy, the darling scarf by Martina Behm, (see class below) with only two skeins and it is the definition of pretty. Gentle on the hands, this lovely yarn comes in a variety of colors sure to please. Be it a sassy fresh scarf or a cool summer top, this is your yarn.
 
Uneek Sock arrived in cute little boxes of two matching skeins, all rolled up and ready for your needles. Make a matched pair with ease.
