Yearlong Knitalong: May! A Switcheroo: The Shift Cowl!

Join us next Monday, May 4th, from 11-noon for May's installment of the 2020 Haus of Yarn Yearlong Knitalong!

What We're Knitting
After consulting KAL-master Shayron, we've decided that due to the sliiightly more complicated nature of what we'd originally scheduled for the May KAL (the Felix Cardigan/Pullover), we've switched the scheduled projects for May and June. So we'll be knitting The Shift Cowl in May and Felix in June. Felix requires a little more "hands-on" instruction, and we're hoping we'll be able to have a few of you in the store by the time the June KAL rolls around.


The Shift Cowl is one of our favorite knits, and it's by far one of the most popular samples in the shop. It's written for sport weight yarn, but we chose worsted weight Malabrigo Rios and used a US 7 needle. We've kitted up a few combinations (click HERE to see 'em!). Each kit contains one each of three different Malabrigo Rios colors. And while we do have those combos prepped for you, this is a great time to go wild and make up your own combination! Just choose three different values and you're all set (Solo Rios skeins are HERE)!

The pattern is not included in the kit; you'll need to purchase it directly from Ravelry. Click HERE for a direct link to the pattern on Ravelry!


Hey Y'all! Here's a Hey Y'all Tote for Y'all!

New tote bag alert! We fell in instant love when we spied this personality-packing tote! Made of 100% cotton, it's 18" wide and 15" high; you'll be able to pack it full of yarn! Each tote has reinforced stitching and its flat bottom allows for easy packing. Click HERE if you gotta have it! There's another design in the dropdown menu featuring cats playing with yarn, and we all know y'all are crazy for cats!
