We recently expanded our selection from local dyer Candy Skein.  In addition to Yummy Fingering, we now carry Tasty DK, an exclusively milled yarn for Candy Skein. It features 3 plies with an amazing high twist.  Tasty is superwash merino great for house socks, sweaters, hats, gloves, mittens and more! You won’t believe the spring and squish this yarn has, and how beautifully it shows off textured knitting.  The palette has been so well put together that the color combos pop off the wall!

Trunk Shows in March

February 23, 2018



We have two trunk shows planned for the first Friday and Saturday of March.  Friday March 2nd is Grace's Cases from 10-6pm.  Grace is known for her fabulous needle storage cases for whatever style of needles you use.

Tami of Candy Skeins will be here Saturday March 3rd from 10-5pm.  Tami is the creative mind behind the special holiday colorways we have gotten this year.  She has a beautiful selection of hand-dyed tonals along with speckles and variegated.  Her yarn is even more special because she has worked with a mill to design her bases.
