Ashley is an indie dyer from Kentucky and specializes in beautiful hand-dyed yarns inspired by movies, television and pop culture. She'll be bringing all sorts of her beautiful yarns including this "Wizard of Oz"/Wicked Witch inspired colorway. Her self-striping yarns usually include a sidekick skein for toes, heels and cuff. She'll also be bringing a surprise custom color combo just for us...inspired by our sweet baby shop dog, Stanley! Who's our nummy-wummy handsome boo-boo? STANLEY IS!

Sabrina from Anzula Fibers will be arriving with twenty(!) vintage suitcases loaded full of yarn and a rack of samples for you to see in person and try on! It's almost like a bag full of Skittles...come taste the rainbow!
The Yearlong Knitalong
Still going strong! Join us in the store on Monday, September 12th, at 11am for the second month of the Two Harbors Poncho. We love the construction of this piece -- stitched sideways in two easy panels and seamed up the center. Two Harbors is a fun knit and truly flatters every figure. Our sample is knit in Shelter from Brooklyn Tweed, which makes it incredibly light and airy. Haus of Yarn
We challenged you to make four pairs of socks -- one pair of socks per month, all summer long. September 30th is the deadline!
