the newest knit.wear magazine is here

The new fall issue of Knit.Wear Magazine arrived today, and it has some truly inspiring projects.

Speaking of inspiring…

Look at these great projects our customers and employees have recently finished.

Judy’s stunning Rockefeller – a shawl that she completed during the Westknits Mystery KAL.  (made with Madelinetosh Merino Light – colors dahlia and opaline)

Amy’s Clockwork, knit with Madelinetosh Sock Yarn (colors tart and turquoise)

Olia’s Clockwork, knit with Madelinetosh Merino Light (colors curiosity and tomato)

Our shop’s Double Infinity Cowl, knit with Classic Elite Chalet.  The pattern is free with the purchase of yarn.  It’s similar to our Triple Infinity Cowl, but a thicker, warmer version.

Amy’s adorable bunny rabbit knit with various soft yarns.

Amy’s elegant Manitou cable scarf made with Rowan Wool Cotton.

Maura’s Jetty – which was originally a sweater pattern that she turned into a fabulous dress.  She used Madelinetosh DK in the color tart.

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.
