Michelle went a little freestyle with this asymmetric shawl knitted in @plymouthyarn Incan Spice. It is so soft - extra fine merino, baby alpaca, mulberry silk and yak! See and feel it for yourself in the shop - we have limited hours this week, and next week begins our Grand Opening!

The Leaving Cowl is a free pattern by Maria Magnusson @mariamagnussonknits and it is just gorgeous on Fibra Natura Ravello, offered by Universal Yarn @universal_yarn .

This was a fun and quick knit that only uses one ball of Ravello - a super-soft blend of cotton, fine merino and recycled cashmere. We have every colorway! 🧶

We will be carrying Pix by Wisdom Yarns, a superwash wool and nylon blend which comes in eight fun colorways! This vibrant colorway is called Tiger Lily.

This sample was knit in a 7x1 rib with an eye of partridge heel.

Sample time! Jan used one skein of @wonderlandyarns Mary Ann from their Colorburst collection to knit this shawl, which used the assigned pooling technique from the pattern Float by designer @barker.wool .

Want to learn how to use assigned pooling to make your own beautiful knitted object? We have a couple spots left in our class beginning October 6. Stop in or call to sign up:

Got pumpkins?

These crocheted pumpkins were created by our talented friend, Melissa. Thank you so much for sharing these festive little cuties!

There are tons of patterns out there and there is still plenty of time to whip up one of these "gourd-geous" pumpkins for your home.

P.S. Pattern info: Melissa Franken-patterned these guys, so no pattern this time!

Sample time!

This Butterfly / Papillon shawl is just stunning! Pairing Urth Yarn`s Uneek Fingering from with a solid, the yarn does of a lot of the colorwork so you can focus on this fun but challenging pattern. Lots of garter stitch makes for a squishy wrap, but the fingering weight yarn makes it light enough to wear out on a summer evening.
