Amazing Threads - Knit in Public Day & New DellaQ and La Jolla

World Wide Knit in Public Day is June 11th! A day designated specifically for knitting in public started way back in 2005.  It is now celebrated in over 57 countries worldwide! 

The idea was for people to have a day where they took their craft out of their house and connect with other knitters in their community, rather than knitting alone at home not knowing there are other knitters nearby. 

It is considered the largest knitter event in the world!

Join Bobbi outside at the shop on June 11th from 12:00-2:00PM.  Bring your favorite camping chair, a blanket or towel to sit on, some friends, and of course your work-in-progress!
We will supply treats!

A restock of White Gum Wool 4-ply has arrived! 

We started to carry WGM in 4-ply and sport after I found it in Tazmania on a trip to Australia in 2015.  The Story of WGM is worth the read. 

The story behind White Gum Wool is one of
mamas and babies, of diversity and abundance,
and of ethics—for the land, the animals and the people involved in making this yarn.

That also means we have more Painting Honeycombs Kits available!  This pattern is knit using slip stitches which means you only knit with ONE color at a time!  No stranded colorwork needed to make this beauty!


Cyndi just got started on the Rainshadow shawl by Melanie Berg.  She is knitting it in La Bien Aimee Super Sock and White Gum Wool 4Ply!
