More Project Ideas and Free Patterns
Kris is currently working on the Felix Pullover, designed by Amy Christoffers. She's using a fabulous yarn from Trendsetter called Pure Love. Pure Love is a worsted weight yarn that is a soft merino/silk blend. As a bonus, it's even machine washable!

Pure Love is available in a variety of delightful colors. We think this will rapidly become one of your favorite yarns.

For this pattern you'll need 4 skeins for the 2 smallest sizes, 5 skeins *should* be enough for the rest of the sizes. If you're like us, get the insurance skein.

Check the needle list, and click here to order the needles you need. As you need a variety of needles for this project, the a ddi Short Tip Interchangable set will supply you with all but the double points.

Crocheted Shawl

Using two skeins, one of each color, of Marina by Manos del Uruguay, you'll love this beautiful Clean Lines Shawl which is featured in the magazine "Inside Crochet".

Yarn Bombing Group
Our tree outside the shop needs a new sweater, and we need your help!

Our beloved, and much photographed 'yarn bombed' tree outside the shop needs to be refreshed. The lovely squares all around the tree are getting to the point where we really need to replace it.

We need squares! Make us a 12" square. If it's a little longer, that's ok! Any yarn, though the best would be something like Berroco Ultra Wool, as it's durable, washable, and holds it shape well over time. We'll take any fiber, any design, any technique! So knit it, crochet it, weave it, whatever makes you happy!

Here's a knit and a crochet pattern for 4" granny squares. If you multiply everything by 3, you should get a 12" square!

Then drop your square(s) off at the shop, or mail them to us at the address below:

It won't be soon.
It's always a fun day and we love the help!
