Dare to be different

When my daughter Elizabeth was in high school she came across a list of "Little Golden Books that didn't make the cut". Very tongue in cheek with politically incorrect titles like "Strangers Have the Best Candy", "The Pop-up Book of Human Anatomy", or"You're different, and That's Bad" they gave us all a good laugh. I was reminded of that last title the other day when a customer saw one of our new yarns and said. "That one is really different. I don't like it -- it's weird."

Lavandin pullover

Once you see the Lavandin pullover, you're going to want to knit it, so join Ginni for a brand new knitalong Tuesday afternoons. We'll help you choose the right size, swatch the pattern, and get going on this perfect spring sweater.

Corsica is a gorgeous yarn with a soft hand (uh yeah, cotton and cashmere) and great stitch definition. Get started with us because this is exactly what you need for spring!

Kick off Tuesday, February 16
2-4 p.m.
Bring US size 4 and 5 needles

Do you ever stop what you're knitting until you can come in the shop so we can fix a mistake you've made? Ever look at your project and know something's wrong but you're not sure what? Do you rip out everything and begin again because that feels like the only way?

Elba for Spring

Berroco hit a home run this season - I mean really knocked it out of the park. They have just three new yarns, but each one is just beautiful. I ordered all three yarns in all the colors because you will love them all. . Come see the garments knit in these lovely fibers. Mark your calendars for the following shows!

Elba Trunk Show - Friday and Saturday, February 19-29
Mykonos Trunk Show - Friday and Saturday, March 18-19

There's nothing like experiencing the garments in person. Mark your calendars because you don't want to miss this.


Mark your calendars for the 5th Annual Crazy for Ewe Retreat April 15-17!

The highlight of the retreat is a visit to TSC Fine Yarns and a chance to meet Stacy Charles himself, the creative and business force behind the company that brings you Tahki, Filatura di Crosa, and Collezione Stacy Charles yarns. He's going to share with us the gorgeous model garments and give us a peek at the Fall 2016 line!

We'll be staying across the river in beautiful Mt. Holly, a lovely historic town with lots to see and do. In addition to its galleries and antique shops, Mt. Holly offers you a bakery, a yarn shop, and a quilt store. Really, what more could you ask for!

We have a fun-filled weekend planned for you - details will follow, but start planning because this is gonna be the best retreat yet!
