Back in Stock - Noro Ito!

Ito is a brilliant self-striping 100% wool yarn with a whopping 437 yards per cake - just one is all you'll need to complete this cozy cowl! The cowl is simply a long rectangle knit in a seed stitch and rib pattern, making for a quick, easy knit...think holiday gifting, folks! Seam the cast-on edge along one side-edge to form the cowl. If you've seen the newest issue of Noro Magazine, this is the piece featured on the front cover...but we've got the individual pattern to give away for free when you buy a cake of Ito!

Sample Sale Time!!

Join us Friday, November 23rd at 10:00 am for our annual "Black Friday" retired shop model sale! Over the course of the year, as new yarns arrive and old ones get "retired," so do the hand-knit or crocheted (by us!) display samples. So we put them on you!

Shawls, scarves, hats, sweaters...we have over 100 retired* shop samples, each priced at just the retail cost of the yarn used to make it -- an incredible bargain! They can be yours, or you can give one as a gift (we won't tell anyone you didn't make it - just remember to remove the price tag!).

*Let us re-emphasize this: only retired samples are for sale!
