The sky is the limit on what you could make with this selection of yarns….Hats, gloves, blankets, sweaters, socks, slippers, home décor.  For all you Seahawk fans, the sky’s the limit!

Save The Date

I can hardly even believe this, but we are celebrating 10 years in business this month, which just proves that time sure does fly when you are having fun!

In honor of our milestone, we will be having a trunk show on October 10th and 11th.  I am so excited this year to be featuring a Northwest Local hand-dyer, Alexandra’s Crafts from Silverton, OR.  Her yarns are bea-u-ti-ful!!!! She came to visit a few weeks ago with a small amount of her stash and I couldn’t resist getting a small amount of my favorite called Black Butte.  It is a fingering weight made of Silk/Yak/Superwash wool….it is amazing!  Here was a one skein project that I was able to bust out in a couple weeks

If that isn’t reason enough to come in, we will also be having Karen’s cupcakes!  Fabulous yarn,  delicious cupcakes, and a piping hot latte….It just doesn’t get much better Winking smile
