Olive Knits Pattern Pre-Order is 5/23!

Olive Knits Pattern Pre-Order is 5/23!

We have been long-time admirers of Marie Greene's design work, and we jumped right in for the first 4 Day Knitalong in 2017! (Remember Stillwater? Still a classic design.) Since then, we've been on board every year, with the exception of 2021. (Fireworks was a fun pattern--it was a me problem.)

This year, pattern pre-orders will begin on May 23rd--you'll see the design, and next week we'll have more information about our highlighted yarn selection. For now I'll just say that it's one you haven't seen here on our shelves before, I've done a test swatch on a sample ball and *loved* the gauge for this design, and I think you will be smitten with this yarn, too. 

Bonus: we'll be scheduling a pre-KAL zoom with a few of our yarn shop friends in Missouri, Québec, and New Jersey on June 4th. Stay tuned for details!

It didn't end up working for us to do a Madelinetosh Mad May event this year, but we did order the monthly color, and are happy to offer the Riot Ranch Shawl pattern with any Madelinetosh purchase. Rebel Rainbow Rider is available on Tosh Merino Light, and we also have Wool + CottonTosh DK (including our specially-priced one of a kind skeins), and Farm Twist

While the Riot Ranch Shawl is complimentary with any Madelinetosh purchase, the suggested yarn is two skeins of Tosh Merino Light.

We also just received a book order--you can find our current book selection here. Recent shipment included Knitting California, 52 Weeks of Socks Volume 2, 52 Weeks of Easy Knits and more! A reminder--when your cart contains ONLY books for shipping, you have the option of choosing the less expensive Media Mail rate.

Still swatching, but I also started a Kids' Happi Scrappi Hexi cardi using Cotton Supreme Waves. And I knit quite a bit on one of the sleeves of the Flair Free Cardi!
