mini mittens

We sell the pattern for these mini mitten ornaments by Pick Up Sticks.  So cute!  You can also purchase them here.

customer projects…

sumptuous cowl

Ling came into the shop wearing this Sumptuous Cowl by Leigh Radford.

She was disappointed when she finished because it was too large.  But cinching it with some pretty ribbon sure fixed that.  Now it fits and looks great!

She used the yarn called for in the pattern – Imperial Stock Ranch 2-Ply Pencil Roving.     It comes in these fun cake forms.

sumptuous cowl 3

Carolyn made her Sumptuous Cowl out of Misti Alpaca Chunky (doubled stranded).       I really like her more slouchy version too.

candy stripe jacket

I was so impressed when Janet walked in wearing her Candy Stripe Jacket.  We’ve sold this yarn and pattern for months, but this was the first time I got to see someone wearing it.  Bravo Janet!

another favorite cowl…

burberry inspired cowl

The Burberry Inspired Cowl – loved making it and love wearing it.

I used size 10 needles and 2 skeins of Malabrigo Twist (color is zinc).

Here’s the pattern.

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.
