Glamorous Rayon Metallic

It's coming - this weekend - Blue Heron

It's that time of year again -- Blue Heron Yarn 3rd annual Trunk Show is this Friday and Saturday. I swear this event gets bigger and more fun every year! We'll showcase their flagship yarn, Rayon Metallic, but we'll also have lots of my favorite from last year, Soft Twist Rayon. Both are 100% rayon, but that's where the difference ends. Rayon Metallic is silky with a tiny filament sparkling throughout - very glam and sexy. Think Marilyn Monroe in yarn form. Like any Hollywood starlet, all it really wants to do is lounge around and be admired. And everyone does, continue reading

This beautiful shawl, unlike many we've done recently, is worked from the bottom edging up. It's a beautiful and interesting design with enough new techniques that we decided to offer it as a class. In the three sessions, you'll learn everything you need at each stage, finishing it up at the last class. You'll be so happy with what you've learned and so proud of what you've made. Join us, because you'll love wearing this shawl!

ZickZack scarf knit along meets Thursdays

ZickZack Knit Along - meets Thursdays

We kicked off this a gorgeous scarf project last week,and wow - what fun! It looks really complicated, but it's just a simple combination of increases and decreases. The secret is in the yarn, Millie Colori Baby, a fabulous self-striping yarn with fast color shifts. Two skeins each of two colorways produces a fabulous Missoni-style accessory. The pattern is a free Ravelry download from designer Christy Kamm.

Choose your colors here, or come by the shop and join us as we kick off our knit along for this fun and addictive accessory! Thursdays, June 11th 3-5 p.m.

Berroco Indigo Trunk Show

A terrific new yarn this summer is Berroco's Indigo, a 95% cotton yarn that's earth-friendly and totally hip, made from recycled denim. In a palette that will remind you of your most favorite jeans, this yarn is nice to knit and lovely to wear.

We're excited to host the Indigo Trunk show until June 29th. This show is a fresh collection of comfortable garments perfect for an evening on the beach. Come see and try them all!

Summery shimmery Tandem tee

June First Friday project

It's not too late to get in on our First Friday Project! Worked in beautiful Tandem from Tahki Stacy Charles, this little tee is easy and fun to knit (gauge is 4.5 stitches/inch) and even better to wear.

The colors in this yarn move easily to create a gorgeous fabric with the tiniest hint of sparkle. Relaxed enough for jeans, but polished enough for a special event. Pattern is here
