Amazing Threads - Shop Hop Success! Shawl Kits and Yarn Available!


 
This weekend was the Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop, and what an incredible weekend it was!



Thank you to those of you that stopped by and hopped with us!  There were so many friendly faces - individuals & groups simply happy to be Shop Hopping again! 

A special thank you and welcome to our new friends that visited us for the first time! 
We are so glad you are here! 


One of our favorite things about Shop Hop is that it gives back to the local communities! With your help and generous donations, we were able to collect over $4600 to donate directly to CROSS Services!  THANK YOU for your donations!!!



It is with great pleasure we introduce the Karst Mystery Shawl!



It uses one skein of Baah La Jolla and one skein of Primrose Homestead Sport.  The pattern along the bottom of the shawl is mosaic knitting, meaning that it is knit using only one color at a time and slipping the other stitches as you go! 
A stunning pattern accessible to all levels of knitters!



We have both kits and individual skeins of each yarn available to purchase that are ready to take home with you if shopping in-store, or ready to ship out to you if shopping online!

For Shop Hop we had over TWO DOZEN new samples throughout the store, all of which were made by our wonderful staff!  It makes these projects extra special because it is items they chose and were inspired to make for themselves.  How cool is that!  We'll be featuring some of these beautiful samples in the upcoming weeks!



Susan's Roman Villa Shawl is a MUST SEE in person.  It is absolutely stunning!  Knit in Farmer's Daughter Fibers Juicy DK, it is a gorgeous piece you can dress up or down.  Love the colors in the sample?  Pre-Order your kit today!



Maxine's As You Wish shawl is knit in Life in the Long Grass Singles.  This shawl was a Mystery Knit Along that wrapped up last month.  Inspired by the movie The Princess Bride, the pattern is full of fun movie references and each section has a theme based on a part of the movie.  Certainly an entertaining knit!

We found a few adorable Easter inspired patterns for you to enjoy this week!

The Easter Bunny Treat Bag by Rebecca Langford is an adorable crocheted pouch to stash all your Easter goodies in!  A great bag pattern that can be easily customized to fit any holiday or occasion. 



The Lucky Duckling pattern by Claire Garland is the sweetest pattern to knit your very own fuzzy ducklings.  This pattern is knit flat with just one seam to close. 



Cory the Giant Bunny by Ilaria Caliri is simply the cutest!  This big bunny is crocheted in bulky weight yarn and makes the perfect, huggable friend.

 

The Bunny Got Back Socks by Amy Gunderson are absolutely adorable!  Little bunnies are knit across the foot and a cute little cotton tail is added to the back of the ankle.
