We have spent the first week of January catching our breath, and both restocking and reshelving yarn (a fancy term for straightening shelves). We started making decisions as to what yarns and products to continue into the new year, since sales reps will start making their way into the shop and we will need shelf space for new yarns. We usually are aware of the areas we want to strengthen, but as always, we welcome your input. Also, if you have a yarn or product you loved working with, or one you didn't, please let us know! Again, we wish you peace and health in the new year and we thank you for your continued support.

Fishbones by Mary Jane Mucklestone is such a fun knit. So fun, as a matter of fact, that one hat wasn't enough! This pattern's simple stranding is a great way to dip your toe into colorwork. The color changes are predictable and methodic, which puts it directly into the "pleasant knit" category. Our store samples are knit with Ultra Alpaca Light, a much-loved favorite from Berroco. It never disappoints. If you'd like to try other similar yarns, Quaker Hill from Plymouth or Alpaca Heather from Manos would be fabulous substitutes. Since these yarns are all DK weight, check your stash for something to use for a contrast pompom and have fun!
