Hilary created these fun wine cozies for our window display.

comfy, versatile wrap…

Kaye came by the other day to show her latest project – Holly from Rowan’s Studio 18 pattern booklet.

I love it on her, and I love that it can be worn in several different ways.  A great fall piece.

It’s a simple knit, made with Felted Tweed.   We have many beautiful shades of this DK weight yarn.

Being a Mainer, I’m always eager to find products from my home state.

Swans Island has made beautiful blankets for 15 years.  Just recently they began offering yarn.

We are thrilled to carry their worsted weight, organic merino wool.  Spun in Maine, the 250 yard skeins are dyed with natural substances such as indigo, cochineal, madder, weld, and other plant dyes.  The resulting colors are rich.

Another line we’re pleased to be carrying is Koigu.

We’ve got 18 beautiful colors of KPPPM, the fingering weight yarn that’s ideal for gloves, scarves, socks and baby sweaters.

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.

Contact us to learn more.
