monsters and munchkins…

Carrie’s been turning out some crazy cute monsters.  Meet Hugo and Corbin.

Molly’s adorable 2 year old daughter, Bea, is destined to be a model.

Here she’s wearing Kindling.  So sweet!  (made with Be Sweet Bamboo)

kidsilk crazy…

We love Rowan’s Kidsilk Haze.  It’s soft and drapey and comes in a zillion gorgeous shades.

Many people have enjoyed choosing 3 colors to make our Ombre Cowl.  This one, knit by Carrie, is especially beautiful!

This one, knit by Molly, is striking too!

And this one, knit by Hilary, was the original inspiration.

Sam and I had fun choosing some pretty color combinations today.  What’s your favorite?


If you don’t want to switch between three different colors, but you still want some color interest, try using Rowan’s Kidsilk Stripe.  It stripes on its own as you knit or crochet with it.

The blocks of color vary in size depending upon the number of stitches you cast on.

Here are a couple of pretty examples:


simply adorable!

Maura has been a big help at the shop this winter season.  Yesterday she stopped by to show her latest project – the oh so sweet Woodland Hoodlet.  I want one!  It knit up quickly on size 15 needles and it took 3 skeins of Twinkle Baby Chunky.

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.
