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.

Irish Shawl by local designer Kay Hopkins was inspired by a visit to Ireland: the stitches are reminiscent of the rugged and rocky moors criss-crossed with rock walls, the Cliffs of Moher (aka the “Cliffs of Insanity” from the movie Princess Bride) with its fortress castle at the very top, and the most incredible Tree of Life jewelry designs at an outdoor market in Howth.
This shawl is knit end-to-end in a completely seamless manner and will look great in fingering weights from local dyers Bumblebirch and Canon Hand Dyes. The pattern is easily adjusted to any size by simply adding or reducing repeat sections. The diagonal bias of the main shawl body really shows off hand-dyed yarns but is equally stunning in a solid color.
She even wrote a travel blog about it on Ravelry.
Join us on Fridays from 4-6pm or Sundays 3-5pm and choose any of the three designs from the Celtic Shawl Collection.

It's time for a new KAL! With the weather forecasted for this weekend in the high 90's we thought we would pick a cool, small project that will travel with you if your holiday weekend includes travel. Rose City Rollers by Mara Catherine Bryner (aka orangeknits) are the third most popular sock pattern on Ravelry, and for good reason. It is a well-written pattern, and the sock has just enough cuff to stay in place. This is a great project whether you've knit many socks and you're looking for a new pattern, or wanting to venture into sock knitting - you learn all the technical aspects of socks without having to knit all that leg!
