congratulations olia – winner of our favorite bear contest

Our customers made 23 bears during our charity knit along for The Mother Bear Project.  We’re excited to get them in the hands of little children in developing countries who will love them.

Though all 23 bears were absolutely wonderful, Blue Ballerina Bear won the Favorite Bear Contest.  Congratulations to Olia!

Chicago Yarn Crawl – our shop pattern

The Chicago Yarn Crawl has gotten off to a wonderful start, and we’ve been pleased with the great response to our featured shop pattern – The Triple Infinity Cowl.

This project features Classic Elite Yarns Vail, a super soft and drapey blend of alpaca and bamboo viscose.

Stop by the shop for a copy of this free 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.

Contact us to learn more.
