We will be open Christmas Eve and New Years Eve from 10-2, and closed Christmas Day and New Years Day.
We are open regular hours the other days :)
So our new website is not quite finished! So you are getting directed to our woefully neglected blog!
Hopefully the new site will be done and look sparkly new and fresh soon!
In the meantime I will try and post more on the blog!
Hand Dyed Holiday is this Saturday, December 12th – we will be featuring Madelinetosh, Leading Men Fiber Arts and Zen Yarn Garden Trunk shows – We will have around 2,000 skeins of new hand dyed yarn for the event. The shop will open at 10am! Hope to see you there. See the event on facebook for more information!
It has been a rough start to spring around here, but hopefully the weather today is a good indication of things to come in the next few weeks!
We are having Jen Lucas in the store on May 5th to teach two classes on lace knitting and lace borders, both are great classes for any level of knitting. If you are just thinking about starting to knit lace, the lace stitches class would be a great place to start!
I just got done updating the website with a new spring yarn from Berroco called Maya, it’s a beautiful blend of cotton and alpaca. It is a chainette construction so it helps keep both fibers bouncy and prevents drouping in a heavier garment. There is a shawl in the shop made up from this and it is the perfect weight for wrapping around the shoulders in a chilly restaurant or theatre.
Tonight is downtown Morris Trick or Treat night between 5-7. We are looking forward to seeing all the little ones in their costumes.
I just sent out the November class list, if anyone isn’t on the mailing list and would like to be please let me know!
We have a few spots left in the Amy Herzog classes the weekend of November 3rd & 4th. If you have any question about the event let me know!
2 new yarns came in yesterday and are ready to be knitted/crocheted!
The first is Zauberball 100, which is just like Zauberball (which everyone knows I love!) except it’s 100 percent wool instead of having the additional nylon content. It’s meant for shawls and garments besides socks, which need the nylon for strength.
Colors are here.
The 2nd yarn is Schulana Milford, it’s a beautiful rustic looking tweed. It’s a blend of silk, wool, and alpaca with tons of softness and some sheen. Available colors here.
Friday’s UPS delivery brought me my order of Cascade Casablanca, it’s a a beautiful blend of Wool, Silk and Mohair. It’s color changes are very similar to those you’ll find in Noro yarns, but with less of the twigs and bits of VM that you find in Noro. It’s a beautiful yarn and we have all the colors!
Stop in the shop, or click here to check them out!
A number of people have asked me about the Amy Herzog lecture. The lecture is a great option for anyone. It’s an hour of her talking about the big concepts of her fit to flatter series and an hour to be able to ask questions.
If you haven’t progressed to making sweaters yet this is still a great option to learn the big concepts and know what to think about when you are making your first sweater!
Feel free to contact me with any other questions!
Have you seen Liberty Wool Light yet? Everyone knows I love Liberty Wool, the fun and unique combinations of colors and the gentle color shifting in some contrasted with the less gentle changes in others. It’s also super soft and machine washable so it’s great for every day wear. So Liberty Wool Light is the same colorways and fiber content as Liberty Wool in sport weight. Making it even better for early fall sweaters that can transition into winter for layering pieces, or great for people who work in an office with fluctuating temperatures.
I’ve been working with Amy Herzog trying to find a time for her to come and teach her fit to flatter workshop for a few months now. I’m so happy that she will be coming at the end of September. There is still room in all of the classes, you can register through our website and read about all the class details!
You may recognize Amy’s name from her design work she’s been published in different magazines and books.
