Knitting and modern domesticity

Knitting is not a hobby

Hi there,

I recently listened to a podcast in which Trish Malcolm interviewed Cecelia Campochiaro, author of Sequence Knitting Malcolm often begins her interviews by asking her guest how they got into knitting. Campochiaro said that it was not her mother, but the mother of a friend who taught her to knit. Apparently Campochiaro's mother had been forced to major in home economics in college and bore deep resentment against domestic arts.

I can totally see that. Even activities we genuinely enjoy lose continue reading


We had an amazing response to the Noro entrelac afghan! It really is kind of magical-- the fabric looks like it has been woven!
Entrelac is a perfect way to showcase Noro's colors, with each square featuring a different color. You'll learn entrelac using Noro Silk Garden to make a scarf, but once you know the technique, you can make any lovely entrelac project you like. Click here for more info or to register

Heidi Kirrmaier-- Avalanche KAL

Avalanche kal

This is a great top down project by everyone's favorite Heidi Kirrmaier. Cables and a bit of lace make it fun and interesting, and US size 10s make it fast. Our sample at the shop is in Alpaca Silver by Katia Concept, but you have lots and lots of options. Join Keidi to knitalong Sundays starting October 27th at 1:30.

Join Ginni for a knitalong on this beautiful sweater by Martin Storey for Mode at Rowan. Worked in Cocoon, it's a soft and easy to wear.

You'll love knitting it and you'll love wearing it.

Tuesday afternoons, starting November 5th.

Mode at Rowan

Join us Saturday, November 9th from 10am to 1pm to kick off the Mode at Rowan Trunk show. We'll have almost all of the garments from this first collection by Mode, Rowan's newest and freshest addition. I was so blown away by this new line when I saw it in the spring that I bought every yarn in every color from the Mode palette. A lovely soft and wearable palette, you'll want to build your wardrobe around! Let us know you're coming here

Hat Class

This is a fun and easy project class perfect for newer knitters who want to build skills and work something cute they'll actually wear. This slouchy hat worked in bulky yarn and knits up quickly for an on-trend pop of color this winter. They make great gifts too.

Class meets for two sessions. More info and to register here
