We’re participating in a fun Yarn Bomb Collaboration with neighbor shop, John Fluevog Chicago.  And we need your help!

They just completed a beautiful remodel of their store, and want to yarn bomb two pillars in the center of their space.  That’s where you come in!  We’re inviting 24 knitters to knit 12″ x 18″ panels that will be stitched together and wrapped around the pillars at a Party at Fluevog on November 1st (6-9pm).

Sign up to participate here.  The first 24 knitters to respond will be invited to pick up a yarn package at Fluevog.  You’ll knit a panel in a stitch of your choice, and then bring it to the Party at Fluevog on Tuesday, November 1st from 6-9pm. (at 1539-41 N. Milwaukee Ave).  It will be a fun night watching the knit art come together while shopping for shoes.  There will be food, drinks, discounts and giveaways!

We can’t wait to see the results of this yarn bombing!

Space is limited, so sign up now.

well that was fun!

Stephen West came to our shop for a Westknits Bestknits Book Signing event and Brioche Workshop last week, and he brought a lot of color!

It was truly radiant with all his samples hanging about.

Thanks to everyone who joined us in welcoming Stephen. It was a great time!

You can still join the Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL.  It kicks off Friday, October 7th. Stephen’s designs are always fun – sign up by purchasing his pattern here.

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.
