Rowan Trunk Show 

Rowan Baby Trunk Show

We're thrilled to be hosting a trunk show from the newly-released Cherish collection in-store from April 15th through the 30th. Cherish is a collection for babies aged newborn to 2 years, featuring seventeen designs by Linda Whaley that are timeless and sure to become heirlooms. Inspired by the comfort and luxury all parents wish for their child, most are knit in Summerlite DK and 4ply -- wonderfully soft and light to wear -- made from the finest Giza cotton. This yarn is ideal for delicate summer knits and crochet. Join us in the store between the 15th and the 30th to see these beautiful samples in person!

April Knitalong

The Yearlong Knitalong: April!

The fifth installment of the Haus of Yarn Yearlong Knitalong continues!  This month, we're working on a knitted pillow!  You get to design it yourself using one of the afghan block patterns from the Haus of Yarn Block-a-Month afghan book. Our goal this month is to hone those seaming skills! Depending on the block pattern you choose for the front and back of the pillow, you'll have the chance to learn several different seaming techniques. Not interested in making a pillow? You can still join the Yearlong Knitalong with an afghan block pattern from the Haus of Yarn Block-a-Month Afghan book. 

As a genuine 'thank you!' for your participation, all materials purchased at Haus of Yarn that relate directly to each month's knitalong will qualify for double stamps on our Haus of Yarn Reward Card. DOUBLE STAMPS! We really do appreciate your participation and want to encourage as many of you to make as many of the monthly projects as possible.  Earning double stamps will make it that much easier!

Not local?  No worries!  Join the Yearlong Knitalong virtually.  We'll be creating threads for each Knitalong project in our Ravelry group.  Click here to join our group and come knit along with us!  

We'd love to see your projects!  In process or completed...if you're on Instagram, join in anytime with #yearlongknitalong and #hausofyarntn.
