Melodia Melodia 2

Melodia is a crescent-shaped shawlette with delicate eyelets and bouncy garter stitch. It's a perfect one-skein project to showcase your favorite fingering weight yarn.  Our sample is knit with Esopus, from one of our favorites: Jill Draper Makes Stuff! This USA-grown, hand-dyed, superwash merino is springy and soft. The four plies lend durability and the round construction makes for great stitch definition. Perfect for socks, shawls, and sweaters alike!  It's especially good for picky wool wearers, as it is next-to-skin soft and washable.





We adore these new Walker notions pouches made in San Francisco, California. The 7"x9" size combined with the gusset flat bottom make them a perfect organizing tool for all of your notions. Available in 9 colors, one of these would be easy to spot in your knitting bag!

If you missed out on our last shipment of necklace rulers...they're back!  The Industrial Era was the inspiration for this great little ruler. These are made in Wisconsin from local hardwoods and are available in either a 2" or 4" length and hang from a vintage-toned 30-inch ball chain.

The teensiest scissors we have ever seen, these colorful snips have a generous handle size, are made with a super sharp blade and even have a silicone safety cover.  Every knitting bag needs one!


A Note from Christina, Organizer of Threads of Kindness:

Hello everyone...I'd like to invite you to join a group that is very near to my heart as I know it is for many of you.  We are working to provide hospice patients in middle Tennessee with a blanket or shawl for a little comfort at a time when they may most need it and preemie blankets and hats to many of the Nashville's Neo-Natal units.  If you think this giving opportunity may be right for you, please reach out to us.  We are fortunate to have generous yarn donations from Haus of Yarn helping us along our way and would love to share our stash with you.
