It's always exciting to us when a customer comes in with the desire to learn how to knit or crochet. Today, three very ambitious girls came in with that exact agenda. They wanted to knit! In a matter of minutes, they were all sitting at the table with Tasha, and before they knew it, they were knitting away!

Makenna carefully wraps her yarn around a stitch. This is a lot of dedication from a seven year old!

Her big sister, 12 year old Hayley is well on her way to mastering her new hobby!
Jennifer intently looks at the beginnings of her new scarf.

They spent a few hours with us laughing and knitting. Tasha sent each of them home with an assignment to complete over the next week. Finally, homework they WANT to actually do! We are proud of your accomplishments, girls! Keep up the good work!

Our store is now fully stocked with Kertzer's Northern Worsted Yarn, a very nice and very affordable yarn which is perfect for our new knitters and anyone else who loves to knit for babies and children.

Knit with this and your masterpieces can be thrown in the washer and dryer without any worries! Come in and check out the wonderful colors that are available to you!
Speaking of colors, you must come in and feast your eyes on the Nashua Handknits Sitar! This yarn is saturated with rich, bold colors!
Another new addition is the Spice Berry! It is as yummy as it sounds!

Last night was the first night for our Bella's Mittens! The Twilight Saga inspired mittens were such a hit, we might have to offer another class! It was a full house! I started another pair while I taught some very enthusiastic knitters. This time I am using Ironstone for a slightly larger mitten.
And last but not least, Tasha wanted to post a better picture of the shawl I wove now that it's blocked and displayed in the shop. It really is quite lovely and I can't wait to make another one.

Here's to new adventures and new projects! Have a fantastic day!
