Introducing LUMIO yarn.

New colors for 2015.

This innovative hand knitting yarn has a reflective effect in the dark, making it ideal for children, cyclists, joggers, and everyone who wants to keep visible.
The reflective effect is caused by a high-tech component which is plied
together with the yarn.
The yarn label includes a quick to knit ski hat. Here's the shop model. Stop by and see the yarn for yourself.

It just takes one ball for a hat!

Fall yarns will be arriving.

Stop by to see all of the new arrivals.

What's New!

Mrs. Crosby

"Likes to play."

A fabulous new line of yarn
here at the shop.

This is a select line of yarns that have a wonderful hand
and are delicious to knit with.

To quote Mrs. Crosby

"A great yarn is like a great man.
A little work creates something wonderful
you'll want to have around for years."

Because Mrs. Crosby is a traveler the yarn fibers have to be practical. Train Case, a fingering weight yarn great for socks, contains 30% Outlast® viscose. Developed for NASA, Outlast® utilizes phase change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort.

We have sample cards of all of her wonderful colors and a nice selection of her yarns so please stop by and see her complete work.

Checks Shawl

This scarf will be a new class starting in the Spring.
