New in the Store and Fresh on Our Needles!

The Birds of a Feather wrap has long been on our must-knit list and with the recent arrival of Farmers Daughter Mighty Mo & Foxy Lady, we finally have one on our needles! This piece begins at a single point and grows and shifts from sections of ethereal mohair/silk to sections of smooth merino/silk single-ply into a piece that begs to wrap around your shoulders!

You'll need two skeins of Foxy Lady and one skein of Mighty Mo -  both dyed in the same color - to complete your wrap. We have eight options for you to choose from - picking just one was hard, as they're all our favorite! The sample photographed is Ghost Dance, and we couldn't be more pleased! Happy shopping and happy knitting!

Brooklyn Tweed Trunk Show: Arbor

Get inspired by the Brooklyn Tweed Arbor trunk show on display at Haus now through August 19th. Summer may be in full swing, but it's a perfect time to get started projects perfect for winter snuggling! We have ten pieces on display, all knit in Arbor. Two of our favorites - High Pines (requires 3 skeins) and Proof Scarf (requires 7 skeins) - send the stitch definition barometer through the roof! Don't miss it! Stop by and squish them for yourself!

Haus of Yarn Yearlong Knitalong: August Edition!!

 Join us in the store today, Monday, August 6th, at 11:00 am for August's Yearlong Knitalong project! This time around, we'll be working the Basic Brioche Beanie! This is a great brioche for beginners project -- a simple two-color hat with a fold-up brim that really highlights the reversible brilliance of the brioche stitch. We sampled the hat three ways using RiosWeepaca & Kashmir Alpakka - you'll only need one skein each of TWO colors of whichever you choose!

Not interested in learning brioche? 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 today - Monday, August 6th.
