Amazing Threads - Gold Tip Needles are Flying Off the Shelves & Christmas In July Event

Gnomey is living his best summer life in the front window!  He's got his shades and shell necklace on, and is ready to go to the beach party with his sheep friend!  Be sure to check out the front window next time you stop in to see the display as well as all the pattern books and magazines we have available.

This past weekend was our cast-on party for the Sailaway Cardigan.  This was OliveKnit's 6th annual 4 Day Sweater KAL!

We had so much fun and Bonnie was a wonderful hostess! 
She made the sailboat cookies to go with the theme!

We had a great group of people come out to start or continue working on their cardigans!  It is always so fun to see everyone's color choices!  We will be sure to get another progress photo when the group gets together again later this month!

Remember - Those who finish their Amazing Threads Sailaway cardigan by July 31st will receive a GIFT CARD!

Maple Grove Days starts this Thursday. The shop is open regular hours and you can get to the shop on parade night as well.  Don't forget to enjoy the Art Fair!

This weekend was the launch of the new Gold Tip Needles created by our very own Suzanne Lek!  Everyone has been so amazing and supportive and needle sets are off to new homes every day!


These needle sets come with braided cables, 6" needles with gold tips, US sizes 2, 2.5 through 10, and the smoothest join of any interchangeable set you will ever experience! 

But don't just take our word for it! 
Check out this review from Megan of Briocheandbrews on YouTube.

Also, our customer Deb has been busy knitting her Sailaway Cardigan using the Gold Tip Needles!  This is what she has to say:

"The yarn slides so nice onto the needle.  You have actual room to work with the stitch on that gold tip and the point isn't too sharp that you hurt your finger.  I don't have to push the stitch off with my finger as often since there is space to work with the stitch, and they don't all fall off the needle when you are completing the stitch.  She (Suzanne) did a great job!" - Deb H


Maxine finished the Feel Good Shawl by Andrea Mowry!  She chose to knit this stunning brioche pattern in Farmers Daughter Fibers Juicy DK!  Be sure to check out the sample next time you're in the shop.

Our customer Linda finished her beautiful Calliope sweater knit in Farmers Daughter Fibers Craggy Tweed!  It is the perfect reminder that this Fall wraps up our Calliope Shop Sweater knitting!  Since we're already in mid July, don't forget to work on it or get it started soon!

Join us on July 22nd from 5:30-9:00PM for Friday Night Stitching!

The Sugar Shawl is an easy shawl pattern perfect for summer and early fall!  Our sample is going to be knit using Baah La Jolla and Rowan Fine Lace held double.

Summers are busy for everyone - stay tuned as we add more classes to the schedule!

Remember we have social knitting every week on Tuesdays, both in the morning and evening.  Join us Tuesday mornings from 11:00AM-1:00PM or Tuesday nights from 5:00PM-7:00PM.  Free with Knit Club membership!

We are loving the Ethniu Cardigan!  This free crochet pattern uses sport weight yarn.  We have a great color selection in our Amazing Threads Simply Sport yarn or White Gum Wool Merino Silk 5ply.

Calling all Lord of the Rings fans!  How cool is the Fellowship of the Ring hat!  It would make the perfect holiday gift!  Knit using DK weight, consider using Plymouth Merino Superwash DK or La Bien Aimee Merino DK.

The Fuss Free Sideways Shawl is a perfect crochet project for beginners!  Using worsted weight yarn, it will work up quickly!  Try using Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok or Malabrigo Rios!

Do you have a single skein of beautiful, variegated, sock yarn you had to have but had no plan for?  Look no further than the Reyna Shawl!  This pattern was specifically designed to work with variegated colors! Need some new yarn? Consider Baah La Jolla or Life in the Long Grass Singles.
