Manos del Uruguay Spring Summer 2022 Collection
Estambre Shawl - knit in Alma
Twice a year, our friends at Manos del Uruguay partner with a designer to show off their beautiful yarns. For this Spring they worked with Debra Gerhard of Spruce Lane Designs who has created a delightful collection of pieces featuring a wide variety of Manos yarns. From shawls to color work sweaters, there's something for every knitter. At the link, you'll see a video presentation of the entire collection.

Let us know if we can help you pick out your favorite color combinations!
Tembetari - Crochet Cowl
Tembetari - crocheted with Serena
Serena from Manos del Uruguay, is a Baby Alpaca/Cotton blend that's perfect for Spring/Summer as it's a light breathable yarn with plenty of drape. It's one of our most popular trans seasonal yarns.

This beautiful cowl is made with just three skeins of Serena. Choose either the solid colors or one of their space-dyed color ways.
Interchangeable Sets
We sell a lot of individual needles and hooks in the shop, but we know if you bought a set of addi Clicks, the interchangeable needles, you'd save a fortune on needles!
Crochet Class - Last Chance
Join us ON-LINE, Saturday March 19 from 9AM to Noon for this fun, informative crochet class! As always, the class will be recorded so if you miss it, you can view it after the fact.

In this class you'll learn:

  • Getting gauge
  • Reading Pattern Schematics
  • Increasing and Decreasing
  • Seaming
  • Edging the garment

Having these techniques and skills will expand your knowledge and open up a world of patterns and designs you might otherwise be reluctant to start.
Learn Short Rows!
Short rows are a great way to add shaping without the use of increases or decreases. There are many short row methods and we'll explore many of them while focusing on the technique used in the class project, the Fealdan Shawl, knit with Manos del Uruguay Fino!

The yarn is INCLUDED with the price of the class at a significant discount, so just let us know which kit you'd prefer when you register.

Join us ON-LINE, Saturday April 16 from 9AM to Noon for this fun, informative class! As always, the class will be recorded so if you miss it, you can view it after the fact.
