All of us at the shop hope you, your family and friends are
all staying safe and healthy during this time.
We want to wish all a
prayerful Passover shared with families over
facetime, skype and zoom - who would have thought.
This is also Holy Week and for all you are preparing for Easter
our hope that all the prayers with family during this time
will help bring us together even at a distance - 6 FEET.
Finally, a heartfelt thank you to all who have supported the
Face Mask project with time, expertise, supplies and donations.
We have donated over 2,000 masks to healthcare providers here at home
and in many other states. When we started, I never thought it would be this big.

Everyone needs to make a Baby Blanket - there is always one coming!

with a simple Granny Square. This kit will be on our Site shortly.
All it takes is 3 skeins of EuroBaby
Soft Cotton Chunky
Size Crochet Hook, and our free

pick your color
and we will ship it out to you.
We will do a Zoom Tutorial on making
a Granny Square if we have enough interest.
We also have a beautiful kit for the perfect Spring Shawl.
You will recognize this shawl when we did it in
Dirty Water Dyeworks Lillian and Shimmer
It is Lumos, by Debi Stone.
Just before we had to close, we had taken in a new order from our
Dirty Water Dyeworks - Flecks.
We have combined Flecks with Shimmer for another great
combination for this shawl.
Lumos is a beautiful crescent shape Shawl.
We have shown three sizes above which was achieved by using different
size needles - from a US 5 - 7 / 3.75 - 4.5 mm
The choice is yours.
Just as events were being cancelled, we received a call from
an Indie Dyer - FanGirl. She had been working hard to be ready for Yarn Con and with it cancelled had a lot of yarn for which she wanted to find a home. We wanted to help and happily took on Fingering, Mohair, and DK. The fingering and mohair combined would also make up beautiful in Lumos or any shawl of your choice.
It is not too late to make our favorite "Well Dressed Bunny".
Kit includes one skein of Blue Sky Woolstok, safety eyes, wool stuffing and pattern.
A quick hunt through your stash will find plenty to make the jacket, vest or dress.
Once you have made your bodies, we will host a Zoom session on how to put them
together. The knitting is easy, the sewing and stuffing makes the bunny!
We will have more of these Kits coming to make it a
bit easier to keep busy.
|Finally, we have good news - 52 Weeks of Socks
in on its way back into the shop.
Please let us know if you would like us to hold one for your.

On behalf of the entire team, take care of yourselves, and your loved ones and neighbors.
We will all be together soon.
