Motivation for gift giving: once a month we will get together, choose our own individual projects and target dates, then work them! There will be prizes for goals met, workmanship and mastering new techniques. Be ready for the holidays! Prizes and certificates will be awarded at Tuesday and Friday UFO nights
We have one person who reached target for January! Congratulations! Below is a picture of her project.

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals. Come join us and learn how to create these little critters! During this three week course, we will learn the basics the first class and choose a pattern from the ones supplied or choose one you've had your eye one for a while! Week two will consist of working on the different parts and understanding how shaping works. Week three will be putting all the different pieces together. By the end of this course, you will be able to create many different critters and have one to show your friends.
Colorwork Shawls KAL
Come join us every Tuesday and Friday night for UFO night and work on learning techniques to create beautiful colorwork shawls with unusual constructions. The picture below shows several different kinds patterns for this KAL, all available through the shop. Most of them are free, but a few will need to be purchased before working them.
This is a hand-dyed rayon yarn with a hint of metallic shimmer. The results and color combinations are stunning. Use this DK weight yarn to crochet or knit scarves, sweaters, shawls, and much more. With 252 yards of soft, hand dyed luxury per skein, you have lots of options!
This is an elegant and classy creation with a one-of-a-kind look. The gorgeous colors and subtle sheen create designs that are sophisticated and fashion right.
This blend is a stunning yarn creation imported from Italy. With its spectacular colors and surprising softness, Mosaic Mohair sets the standard for luxury mohair blends.
Mohair Lace II
This yarn is a new and exciting version of an all -ime classic. Work with a ball of this fine mohair blend at a price that defies comparison.
We also have Happy Fuzzy Yarns and Feza Yarns on the way!
We have decided to stop carrying KFI yarns in the shop to make room for new yarn and change the variety in the shop. KFI yarn lines include:
Ella Rae: Cozy Bamboo and Cozy Soft Chunky
Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
If you have projects that need this yarn or if you want to get this, make sure you come in soon since we will not be ordering any more. What we have in the shop is all there is.
Finished Customer Projects
Due to the amount of pictures we have, we have created a post on the blog where everyone can see all of our customers' beautiful pictures. We would love to see everyone's finished projects so be sure to send us a picture and we will put it up on our weblog. Make sure you tell us which yarn it was and what pattern (if you used one) so we can let the other customers know!
Please send all pictures that you would like us to have to firstname.lastname@example.org
