Last Minute Gifts! Yarn Folk

Looking for last minute gifts? 

If you're making--superbulky yarn is your friend, and we've got Malabrigo Rasta, Madelinetosh A.S.A.P., Berroco Macro, Plymouth Encore Mega, and Berroco Lanas Quick, and Berroco Dash. And don't forget our Ravelry bundle, Super Bulky Super Fast if you need pattern suggestions.

Maybe you have a partner with last-minute shopping tendencies? We've got lots of choices for interchangeable needle sets in stock, and while we can't promise timely delivery, we do everything we can to get things out FAST. And we'll be highlighting other gift ideas on Instagram and Facebook all week. 

And as we highlighted last week, we all love a fiber-focused gift card--and the purchaser can schedule the date for email delivery. 

Last but not least, we'll be here from 9-1 on Christmas Eve!

    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).

    We received a box of stripey joy from Julia of Knitterly Things last week--what doesn't Vesper Sock make happier? Each skein features ~5-7 colors, and the stripes are approximately 1/2". (It's also the perfect gift for a sock knitting pal. Pair it with an extra set of sock needles if you know their preferred sock knitting method, since there's no such thing as too many sock needles.) (That's a rule. I made it up.)

    We also brought in some sweet wool felt applique kits from Corrine Lapierre for when you want a bit of fiber-y hand sewing. They also make sweet presents--the designs are charming.

    Did you know? Modern Daily Knitting introduced a set of videos to complement Skill Set--which we have available either by itself or as one of the book choices in our Just Add Yarn Learn to Knit kits.  You can find them on YouTube here.

    The Pressed Flowers Cardigan has a right front! Well, most of one. There was more, until I realized I'd done too many decreases! 🤦
    I also picked up and finished Oh, Gnome, You Didn't, which was a 2019 Mystery Gnome Along. (He's pictured above.) For reference, what I found in the project bag was the hat, with 1 "spike" finished, one almost done, and the last ready to start. It was fun to spend a couple of evenings on fiddly knitting, and add a new festive friend to the holidays. (I also learned that I apparently bought a copy of Here We Gnome Again at some point--hmmmmm.....)
