freddy… a knitting accessory

Can you knit while hugging your dog?  Cathie can!

We love it when Freddy comes to the shop.  He snuggled while Cathie visited and worked on her cowl.

For more than 2 hours he did not leave her lap.

So sweet… now I really want a shop dog!


Yay, I finished my Hitchhiker!  A very enjoyable garter stitch project!

I used 1 skein of Malabrigo Sock Yarn (archangel).  That resulted in 39 teeth instead of the pattern’s goal of 42.  But it’s still long enough to wear as a neckerchief, neck warmer, shawlette.

This morning I laid it out to photograph it.  I turned my back for a moment to plug my camera into my computer, and look who hopped up to check it out.  My curious kitty, Ulee.

valentine’s weekend sale

sharing sweetness on valentine’s day…

Our customer, Mary, knit beautiful blankets for her grand baby twins, and the photographer graciously allowed us to share her heart photo.


The pattern is the Eyelet Baby Blanket, and the yarn is Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes.  Perfection!

What are you making for Valentine’s Day?

happy valentine’s month…

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.
