Amazing Threads: 6 More Weeks of Winter & Cold = More Knitting Time!


 

It's February and still cold in Minnesota.  It's official: Punxsutawney Phil decided Monday there will be six more weeks of winter.

      What is a knitter or crocheter to do?  Enjoy your craft. 

Remember to KNIT FOR YOU!  I am still in my "selfish knitting zone."



The shop is still overflowing with new and wonderful shop models.  Just this week we added a fabulous Gallery Hat that fits any head size up to extra large and is great for guys or girls, plus a pair of Mixer mittens.  So fun when knit in Frabjous Wonderland March Hare Yarn!

We got a 2nd massive shipment of Rasta Monday. I think we have every color in stock as of today.  Come on in and grab your favorite.  It will fly off the shelves this week. Malabrigo Book 8 "In Central Park" Is in the shop NOW! 

     

We have a few ORIGINAL designs at the shop for Rasta:  Love, Love, Love the 3 skein Ultimate Rasta Poncho & the Rasta Button Cowl.  Both patterns are free with Rasta purchase to make the project. On-Line Shoppers:  If you order 3 skeins Rasta we will throw in Poncho pattern or 1 skein an we will throw in the Cowl pattern.

  

New Shipment of Paper Knit Out Yarn Bowls from Lantern Moon hit the shop yesterday.  These bowls are made of layers of paper in Vietnam.  They won't break if dropped.  These sold out in 3 days last week!
