Fresh Off Our Needles!
We've re-yarned one of our favorites -- the Ryman Wrap -- in Nashville's own Camellia Fiber Co.'s Flax. Inspired by the architecture of one of Music City's most famous landmarks, the Ryman Wrap is a fingering-weight wrap that begins with a provisional cast-on and alternates between engaging lace “windows” and soothing stockinette “walls.” 

Flax a bunny-soft alpaca/linen/silk blend that drapes beautifully, with the linen creating an interesting, slightly rustic texture. Fabric created from this yarn is both warm and breathable, making it suited for multi-season garments: lace shawls, cardigans, and lightweight tops.

Between the pattern and the yarn, this is about as local as you can get, so come get your Nashville on, y'all!

Back in Stock: Notions Tins!
The Woodland Friends notions tins contain an assortment of essential notions. The handy slider tins feature vintage illustrations of three woodland animals (Owl, Squirrel or Fox) covered in hand-poured resin. At 3.5" by 2.5", these tins are the perfect size to stow in your purse or knitting bag, but is also large enough to store your small knitting and sewing notions! The best part is that the bottom of the tin is magnetic, so everything will stay put when you slide it open. Handmade in British Columbia. Limited Edition. 

Inside the tin you'll find:
      • 5 safety pin stitch markers
      • 5 ring stitch markers
      • 5 T-pins for blocking
      • 1 tapestry needle for weaving in ends
      • 1 pair of mini bonsai snips

 We're also stocking the adorable Sheep Knit Kit, which contains a similar assortment of notions, though not the mini snips. Sorry, no switching or substituting on these!
