selfish knitters unite

The Selfish Knitting Club gathered at the shop for the first time yesterday, and it was fun to have everyone here.

We look forward to doing it again next Sunday.


selfish knitting club – and special sale

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get selfish!

So we’ve created a Selfish Knitting Club.

We’re going to knit for ourselves, talk about ourselves, and care only about ourselves and our knitting for 2 hours a week!

The Selfish Club will meet at the shop every Sunday in January from 3-5pm.

Space is limited, so we ask that you register in advance by emailing us ( or calling us (773.486.8996).



As an added incentive to do some selfish knitting, we’re having a sale on our Royal Petites Collection from Blue Sky Alpacas.

The yarn and the corresponding patterns are 20% off.

This yarn is the most luxurious alpaca you’ve ever touched!

Resolve this year to knit (and keep for yourself!) one of these super soft accessories.


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.
