New year’s eve.

What are you working on as 2020 comes to an end? Anne and I have closed up shop for the day, and we’ll be closed tomorrow, Jan. 1, as well. Now’s the time for rest, year-end contemplation, and knitting, of course – here’s a peek at our current projects. Anne has been busy stitching for … [more]

Not wanting to miss out on this fun, I’ve decided to cast on with Dapple, too, and selected Anchor and … [more]

I love the color combination she chose – Flannel for the main color, Snowbound and Old World for the contrast colors. Many of you know that Anne never limits herself to one project at a … [more]


Tweed Silk Cloud + Verve!

For as long as we’ve stocked Shibui yarns here at the shop, we’ve been admirers of Shellie Anderson’s designs. She was an in-house designer Shibui for some years and still loves to work with their yarns, creating garments that look simple, but feature thoughtful details to “challenge and delight the knitter,” in her words. “Verve” … [more]
