Total Eclipse of the Shop! Well, One Monday, Anyway.

If you haven't heard, there's a total solar eclipse Monday, April 8th. The store will be closed that day so that we can all hightail it a bit up I-24 to be in the path of full totality. We hope you get a chance to do the same, wherever you find yourself (it's the last total solar eclipse in the US until 2044), and remember: don't look directly at it!

Easy Folded Poncho + STRIPES!

Y'all, we've had this sample of the Easy Folded Poncho completed for months and we're so excited to finally be sharing it with you. For this one, we worked two-row stripes, alternating a solid skein of Old Rusted Chair sock yarn with a Molly Klein Mini-Skein Set. When Meg picked the colors, she obviously had a visit to the beach in mind because the finished piece is begging to be worn while sipping a seaside margarita!

*sample is ORC Branch Out (1 skein) and MK Mini Skein Set Pastel Rainbow (1 set)

Happy Stitchin'

Stitch your own yarn bowl pouch! 

The sturdy paper mesh of the Cocoknits Natural Mesh Bag is a ready backdrop for adding a cross-stitched or needlepointed design. Treat it like any Aida cloth or needlepoint canvas and let your imagination go wild! Words, flowers, inspirational slogans – whatever increases the joy you find in your accessories. The bag opens wide to accommodate a large wound skein (or two smaller ones), it snaps closed allowing you to customize the size and configuration.

New Swag

We couldn't resist these pins! They're sold as a set featuring four yarn-love declaring statements. The pins are 1.25" in size with hand drawn (mostly) shadowed letters and a durable steel pin-back. 
Find these HERE!
