My cadence on adding new merchandise to the shop is off-kilter! I usually receive and add new products to have available on Tuesdays, when this lands in front of your eyeballs, but that just isn't happening this week! Check back for good stuff at Girls Night Out and LYS Day, though! 
To tide you over, I'd like to share this collection of Basics from our friends at Tin Can Knits. The patterns are available individually or as a collection, and they are sized from "baby to big" and are written for multiple yarn weights. Whether you are a minimalist, have a special yarn you want to do all the talking in a project, or need a blank canvas to improvise on, these patterns are a great place to start. You'll find the Simple Sweater, the  Classic Cardigan, the Basic Beanie, and Everyday Socks

…to inspire



Fiber art  + fine art + nature? Yes, please! 

This week I'm inspired by the exacting work of artist Susanna Bauer, who combines natural leaves with fine gauge crochet. Find her work on Instagram and at -- it's stunning.

I've been furiously stitching away on samples for LYS Day. Will I finish it all? Who knows! Cross your fingers that mine will fly!
