Uneek DK!

Back in December, we featured Uneek's worsted self-striping yarn and evidently ya'll love it! We've reordered it twice and now we've stocked the DK version! Each skein of Uneek DK is hand-dyed in rich, vibrant, self-striping colors, so it'll look like you did a whole lot more than just the knit stitch! 100% extra-fine merino wool, 330 yards/skein. We're working on the Bias Before & After Scarf using just one skein, knitted on the bias. This light, airy scarf has the smooth simplicity of stockinette stitch without all the rolling at the edges.



Join us next Monday, February 3rd, from 11-noon or next Saturday, February 8th from 11-noon for February's installment of the 2020 Haus of Yarn Yearlong Knitalong!

The Sweet or Sassy Socks pattern, designed just for us by the incredibly talented Leah, is a fun way to try your hand at stranded knitting.

When finished, you’ll have a charming pair of sweetheart boot socks. In addition to the Sweet (hearts), there's a Sassy (bugs) version included with the pattern as well. Note: the stranded instructions are provided in chart form only. This pattern will also walk you step-by-step through the two circular needle process.

For our sample, we used Navia, a worsted weight sock yarn. You'll need two skeins for the main color and one for the contrasting one. These socks are a quick knit that any feet would be thrilled to wear! 

If you’re working on the Afghan Block-a-Month Knitalong, we'll meet at 1pm on those same Mondays and Saturdays! We'll be working from the trusty Haus of Yarn Block-a-Month Afghan Knit-A-Long book, written by our fearless founder Carolyn Smith. With 48 blocks to choose from, you have a lot of leeway to make exactly the afghan you want!
