What's New? Whew!

  • JADE SAPPHIRE Cashmere

Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere is back in the shop. We're knitting furiously to have models for you to see. Patterns are arriving for simple projects. The best received so far is the Ponchette. We're knitting it out of Sylph, a linen/cashmere blend that you will have to see and feel to believe. Just the right garment to perk-up an outfit. Simple to knit!

  • ROWAN Cotton Lustre

This is a wonderfully blended cotton that is so soft it is hard to believe. It is a ribbon yarn but knits just like a plied yarn. It is worsted weight but because it is a blend it is as light as a feather and does not stretch out of shape. If you love cotton sweaters but dislike knitting with cotton, this yarn will change your mind.

  • CASCADE Pinwheel

This is a great yarn for knitting baby items. This is a marled yarn that is slow striping.The colors are just meant for for children. This is a soft acrylic so it is machine washable.

  • LANA GROSSA Opera

If you like a touch of sparkle but don't like wool, this yarn is for you. This is a cotton blend with a splash of fun. The sequins add just enough to make knitting with this yarn special. We have a great model in the shop.

  • SCHACHENMYER Lumio

This yarn will be a hit this season. This super bulky yarn knits up into a quick hat that reflects sparkles of light. This is a great yarn for a scarf that is easily seen at night.

  • ROWAN Softknit

This is a delightful worsted weight cotton with a touch of nylon. This is a cotton that will hold its shape and is so soft to boot. Rowan has a pattern book for this yarn with some of the best sweater patterns for cotton that I've ever seen. Ask to see the model that we're knitting.

  • CASCADE YARN Venezia

This merino/silk blend is wonderful to work with. The silk adds great sheen and drape, while the merino provides softness.

  • J BRETT Flutterby

This is a super soft chenille that will not worm and is quick to knit. This is bulky yarn with great patterns for children including a knitted and a crocheted blanket that just takes two balls.

  • PRISM ARTS "Layers"Petite Madison and Radiant Petite Madison

Prism has done it again with color. "Layers" is their newest product. The dyeing technique produces layer upon layer of color that looks like a solid from a distance, but close up you can see many subtle shadings that give nuance and depth to the color. Prism Madison is a lovely hand-dyed DK weight yarn that is a blend of merino, cashmere and silk. What makes it "radiant"? Prism has added a touch of Stellina SPK for just a bit of sparkle. This luster of this yarn and its hand is to seen and felt.

  • CASCADE YARN 220 Fingering

Yes, finally! Cascade offers the versatility of 220 in a fingering weight wool. The fans of Fair Isle can finally knit a sweater with a wool that is softer than shetland. The range of colors is not as large as the 220 worsted but more are being added all the time. So if the harshness of shetland has been a limiting factor 200 fingering is the answer.

PLUS: As always we try to feature local favorites -- foxes, hunting scenes, horses and dog themes you might not see elsewhere -- in our store stock of needlepoint canvases. We do search high and low for these subjects, so please know that we have a wonderful collection with brand-new designs and new featured designers arriving often.

If you're looking for something new or hard to find, just give us a call or stop by the store.
