Feeling too tightly knit up these days?

Are things unraveling more than you’d like?

Your life is your tapestry!  This summer add more richness and color to it as you gain clarity on what you want and how to make it happen.

The Workshop will include:

  • a life clarity assessment to reveal what’s holding you back and what will move you forward
  • tools for setting goals that stick
  • action steps to make things happen
  • reflection time when knitting is encouraged
  • a wine tasting

our square-ish knitalong is on fire!

Lots of people came to our Square-ish Knitalong Kick-off Party last weekend!  It was a full house!

Many more have joined from afar – we’ve shipped the yarn and pattern to 8 different states!  Over 80 people are part of the Knitalong, with more casting on every day.  It’s not too late to get in on it.

Look, more people have modeled for us!

Everyone who comes into the shop to try on our sample loves how it looks and feels. We now have Square-ish samples knit in both Shibui Linen (apple green) and Shibui Twig (ash grey).  You might want to make one of each.

Some people personalized the project with little modifications.  Jen made a smaller version with just 2 skeins of Shibui Linen, and she added a cute pocket.  Perfect!

We’d love to see a picture of yours!  Share it on Instagram or Facebook.  Or come into the shop to show us.

Continue to knit with us at the shop any Saturday or Sunday afternoon from 3-5 pm.

And please come to our Finale on Saturday, July 23rd from 3-5 pm.  We’ll have a Fashion Show and Prize Drawing to end the KAL.  It’s going to be fun!

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.
