favorite cowls

Lace yourself up with this elegant neck warmer.  

We'll give you the free pattern when you purchase the yarn (Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky). 

Or… if you don't wish to make it… choose a color and we'll knit one for you (for $45). 


You might want to add this to your project list.  

This Cabled Cowl pattern by Blue Sky Alpacas is knit with Suri Merino and accented with buttons that are slices of a tagua nut.  It's a shop favorite.  We'd love to get you started on it.  

can you cable?


Cables are much easier to knit than imagined.  Sign up for a 2 hour session on Sunday, January 11th, and we'll teach you this new skill.  Soon you'll be adding cables to all your hats, scarves, sweaters and other projects.

Cable Class:  Sunday, January 11th from 2-4 pm ($25 plus supplies)  Call the shop to register.  773.486.8996

If you're not available January 11th… organize a group of friends or schedule a private lesson. In 1-2 hours we'll get you cabling.   Call the shop for details.  773.486.8996   

learn to knit a hat


Sign up for 2 Saturday sessions (January 24 & 31 from 12-2) and we'll teach you how to make this great beginner hat with a button.  

The class fee is just $40 (for 4 hours).  Call the shop to register.  773.486.8996

The shop occasionally hosts special events, book signings, trunk shows, and sales. Private events can also be arranged at the shop by request.

Perhaps you'd like to have a birthday party centered around a knitting lesson. Or a baby shower during which everyone learns to knit a square for a baby blanket. Or a corporate networking event that features knitting instruction. Or a book club that encourages participants to knit while discussing the book. Nina: a well-knit shop is available for these and other special events.
