We had our first Custom Fit Workshop this past Sunday afternoon. Ginni and Mary and I are all very excited about the Custom Fit program. I love Amy Herzog's modern classic designs and her straightforward approach to getting a great fit. Sunday was our first Custom Fit workshop, and we spent the afternoon looking at our silhouette, thinking about our style preferences and getting the measurements needed for a one of Amy's Custom Fit patterns. Of course I hope everyone chooses to knit one of Amy's sweaters, because I think they're beautiful, but if not, there was still great value in yesterday's workshop.

Caesious, a beautiful introduction to the wonderful world of Curls!

Trunk Show August First Friday

Caesious Curl KAL kickoff

Come see the Hunter Hammersen Trunk Show featuring projects from all four of Hunter's books - Curiosity Cabinet I, II, and II, and her latest book Curls. We're especially excited about Curls, a collection of shawls with an innovative shape that's fun to knit and easy to wear.

We'll be starting a First Friday knit along with the Caesious Curl in Breathless DK from Shalimar. Breathless DK combines cashmere, silk, and merino into an elegant yarn with a beautiful hand. Your Caesious will be a treat to knit and an luxurious accessory to enjoy.

We'll have signed copies of Hunter's books available for purchase. Join us for a wonderful evening - Friday, August 7, 5-8 p.m.


Quicksilver - perfect for summer

July First Friday project - Quicksilver

July First Friday was a blast - we had a great time around the table with our July First Friday KAL, Quicksilver. the rain held off, and we enjoyed live music by The Blue-Eyed Blues.

It's not too late to get in on Quicksilver, a beautiful and colorful wrap in three colors. Fun to knit, and perfect for summer. I'm suggesting Hempathy because it''s great for summer wear, and because its fabulous color range gives that you have all sorts of stunning combinations. So, come choose your palette and get started with us. Friday afternoons, 3-5 p.m.

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.
