15 patterns to knit for comfort, gratitude and charity
One of our customers, Tara, shared a picture of the beautiful hat & scarf her mom made her for Christmas.
The yarn is Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky. So soft next to your skin! Tara’s color is Pink Taffy Heather.
You can make this set for yourself too! The hat pattern can be found here on Ravelry- it is a free pattern.
The scarf is a pattern we give away in the shop called the Mistake Rib scarf.
Using a US10 or 10.5 needle, cast on 23 stitches. There is only one pattern row: K2, P2, across the row to the last 3 stitches, K3.
Keep repeating that row to the desired length. You can fringe if you like. We used 2 skeins of Baby Alpaca Chunky for the scarf and 1.5 skeins for the hat.
Enjoy and Thanks Tara!
New yarns are starting to roll in…
Casablanca, new from Cascade Yarns, is soft and smooshy and has a beautiful silk shimmer to it. The yarn is a blend of wool, silk and mohair in a generous 100 gram skein.
There are 8 colors in each colorway and they repeat about 2 times in the 220 yards in each skein. Try one of the free cowl patterns courtesy of Cascade Yarns – each project only uses one skein of yarn.

We had a full house for knitting class this past Wednesday evening. It was so much fun to see everyone knitting, stitching, finishing, visiting and connecting with each other.
We laughed together, felt each others pain as some knitting was ripped out and were inspired by the beautiful work being done all around!
If you would like to join us for regular classes, give us a call at the shop: 508.867.9449
We would love to have you join!
Get ready for a new adventure! Discover wool applique and get stitching!
Our wall of hand dyed wool, threads and patterns has been steadily growing these past few weeks. Our patterns include table runners, pillows, candle mats and some stitchery. Some are very primitive and others more formal. It is hard to decide what to do first.
But it’s really all about the WOOL! Oh my, our gorgeous hand dyed wool is from Moondance Color Company. Rich colors, perfectly dyed to create exactly the look we wanted. Moondance has been dyeing wool for rug hookers and fiber artists since 1981, so we were confident in our choice of their wools. We were not disappointed!
Complimenting the wool are the hand dyed Perle Cotton threads from Valdani. The rich painted like shading of these threads will enhance your work.
To get it all started, we will be holding a “Stitch Workshop” this Saturday from 1-3:30pm. The response has been unbelievable and we look forward to hosting a monthly workshop devoted just to applique. If you are unable to join us this time, stay tuned and we will announce future workshops on our blog and Facebook page.
