Shop News!

I'm excited to announce that we are now distributors for the Lumos Knitting Light! This is a hands-free, wearable light source that is great for makers that want to continue making, even in low light conditions. We did sell out of our first batch, but are taking preorders for the next one. Get your name on the list to reserve one!

Four new colors of Scout arrived this week and they are STUNNING! Scout is a dk weight, 100% wool yarn from Kelbourne Woolens, with a lovely color palette of beautiful, interesting heathered colors. The rosewood, lichen, cinnamon and burnt orange colors bring to mind a gorgeous colorwork sweater. Browse through our Scout bundle on Ravelry for some inspiration!

And last but not least... a new Germantown Unicorn has arrived! This lovely black and natural marled yarn is a worsted weight, just like the solid Germantown colors. I have some plans for this!

Grannies-in-a-Row Socks!

I have just the kitchener stitch left on my second version of these addicting socks. I can't pinpoint exactly what it is about this pattern that has me totally enamored, but my girls and I have already dreamed up several new color ideas! 

Last but not least... my friend Patricia was looking for a recommendation on crocheting granny squares. I like this one!
