Two words: SLEEVE. ISLAND. For a person who really, really, really prefers to knit the sleeves before the rest of the body, I'm really not sure how I ended up in this pickle: four sleeves needing attention at the same time. I'm over 50% of the way through (I've finished 2.6 sleeves), but wow. This is a lot of sleeve knitting.
Current open hours are Monday - Thursday, 7am-3:30pm, Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays, 9am-4pm.
In-store shopping: masks are optional (but welcome and appreciated).
Join us around the big table for a couple of hours of convivial stitching.
Schedule changes related to winter weather will be posted on the door if possible, as well as on Instagram, Facebook, and Google. If roads are crummy on a Saturday, opening time will likely be delayed until 11:30.
Ooof, what a week! Bad weather throughout the US meant that nothing was moving anywhere very fast at all! One shipment which should arrive between the time I am writing this and the time you are reading it spent five days at the FedEx hub in Troutdale, OR. Normally, once something arrives in Troutdale, I have it the following day. Let's just say I'm extra-grateful for the new merchandise that *did* turn up.
Above, we have some beautiful and sturdy bags from Emily Ruth Prints. Emily creates block print designs and sews from her home in Crozet, Virgnia. The large crossbody bags are 13"x13"x4" with a 60" strap, and are constructed from linen/cotton canvas combined with waxed canvas on the bottom to protect the bag--and your project!--from dirt + spills. The strap is adjustable and all findings are a natural antique brass. There is a magnetic closure at the top, and an outside zipper pocket keeps essentials items secure. There is also an interior patch pocket. The prints are lovely, and pair beautifully with the earthy colors.
In case a little spring wanderlust is taking hold for you, Knitting the National Parks might tide you through whatever the rest of winter has in store. All 63 US National Parks are represented by these designs, and each pattern is accompanied by an inspiration photo and some fun facts about the park. This is a gorgeous hard cover book--so it's fairly heavy. Don't forget that if your order only contains Media Mail eligible books, you'll be able to choose Media Mail at checkout for a much lower shipping cost.
