Although Virginia is under a 'stay-at-home' order, we live next door to the store, so I will be able to
continue shipping as long as the post office stays open. Delivery may take longer than usual.
Some of my suppliers are also in states with 'stay-at-home' orders or are operating with reduced staff, so
special ordering yarn may be iffy until people are able to return to work. Inventory counts are now displayed
for all yarn — the numbers in the computer don't always match what's on the shelf, but should be

New yarns and patterns for spring continue to arrive. Four colorways of new Ella Rae Marmel
are now in stock, along with 2 supporting patterns
including the loose-fitting tee with eyelet yoke shown here.
Marmel is a cotton/acrylic DK-weight yarn.
All 10 self-striping colors of new Painted Sock have arrived.
This yarn is packaged as 2 identical 210yd/50gm skeins, taking the guesswork out of making a matching pair of
socks - just use 1 skein for each sock!

arrived! It has 7 fair isle and textured stitch sweaters for women, all knit in
Jamieson Spindrift. All colors of Spindrift used in
the book are currently in stock.

My version of Nightshift Shawl. I used 1 ball each
Akari #5 & #7. The original shawl is knit
from the cast on few stitches to the other end. With the Akari, I knew the striping would get
narrower and narrower but I wanted more color blocking. So I worked until top edge was 36" wide
then I decreased instead of increasing until back to the original number of stitches. Looks
like sand and surf. I love how soft and cozy the yarn is. Probably could use a better picture as
sun came out when I was trying to shoot it. Pattern is
$7, yarn is $40 a ball.
