KAL #2  Mystere

Would you rather be surprised?  Join us for the SknitsB Mystery KAL featuring Big Bad Wool’s Weepaca.  This Mystery KAL consists of 6 clues that will be released beginning Thursday, January 15th.  For more information, and the pattern, click here.

KAL #3  M.1 Scarf

The M.1 pattern has been available for awhile, and everyone has fallen in love with our sample.  It’s the ultimate unisex scarf.  It’s soft and warm, without the bulk.  Slipped stitches and I-cord edging create visual interest and give the piece a lofty, modern structure.  For more information, and the pattern, click here.

Join this KAL on the following Sundays from 3-5pm:  January 4, 11, 18 & 25.


KAL #4  Knit a Hat

Are you a relatively new knitter?  Would you like to keep it simple?  Join us any Saturday or Sunday from 3-5pm in January and cast on the Super Simple Super Bulky Hat or the Mazza Hat.  Both patterns are free with a purchase.

We look forward to some Selfish Knitting with you.


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.
