February March Knitalong 

The Haus of Yarn Yearlong Knitalong: February/March Edition!!

Join us in the store, next Monday, February 6th, at 11:00 am as we kick off the next installment of the Yearlong Knitalong! This time around, we'll be working on a wrap designed by Shayron! Bobbe's Wrap is an easy-to-knit wrap and is perfectly cozy for crisp cool mornings or evenings...or when you just want to settle down and curl up with a good book. We've designated this project as a two month long project so we'll be meeting again for this one on Monday, March 6th -- same time, same place!!

Not interested in making the wrap? You can still join the Yearlong Knitalong with an afghan block pattern from the Haus of Yarn Block-a-Month Afghan book. The Block-a-month Knitalong meets at 1:00 pm on Monday, February 6th.

Remember: attendance for Knitalong Mondays is always free! 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. 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.



Wollmeise! Yes, Wollmeise!

We've placed a rather, um, large order with the German yarn company Wollmeise and it's started trickling in! The first to arrive is a gorgeous hand-dyed DK weight, 6-ply fine merino wool. This one is soft with a robust, elastic twist, and one skein has 468 yards! The Allis shawl is sampled and on display in the shop now and is a simple, elegant, sideways shawl designed to be worn around the shoulders or wrapped around the neck as a scarf. The pattern includes a guide to help you adjust the size so you'll use up every inch of your skein of yarn!
