The Washington State mammal KNITS!


Just a little peek at my weekend adventure--several of our vendors traveled to Seattle for a mini-trade show. So nice to spend time with them and other shop owners on Sunday and Monday!

 

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). Thanks for your help in keeping my business open to the public!

...to anticipate

Did you know that the Olympic marmot is the state endemic mammal of Washington State? True fact, and we don't know *for sure* that they don't knit, now do we? The greeting cards and stickers also feature our state bird (the willow goldfinch) and the state flower (the coast rhododendron). The tea towels spotlight the knitting marmot in all her? his? glorious industry.

…to inspire

 

Berroco Chai is a blend of linen and silk, and it's an inspired choice for warmer weather knitting and crocheting. We currently have a trunk show featuring garments from the Spring 2021 collection, and if you have a chance, stop by and feel what this yarn feels like knit into fabric--it is pretty magical. Keaton is a dramatic ruana--it's a LOT of stockinette knitting, but it's a timeless style, and would last forever. Patti is the perfect swingy a-line tank with a welcoming size range from 34" - 70". Joanna is a relaxed, all-over lace pullover, with an amazing drape. Vivian might be my secret favorite in the collection--it's a triangle shawl in an open lace stitch, and it seems like the perfect summer wrap. Iris is another beautiful shawl option--a shallow garter stitch triangle, with simple lace detail at the edges.  Pattern links are to Berroco's site, but all are also available on Ravelry.

These garments will be in house until later in the month--stop by to admire them in person! And you can find Chai here (and of course, it's available through the Berroco Drop Ship program).

...to stitch 

It was a busy week, but I did finish the first sleeve of my Stripes of Joy Sweater in Berroco Lanas. Behold, a cuff.

I also started the third color in the colorblocked verson of Annabella's Cowl. When I'm finished with this ball of yarn, I'm finished with the project!

And the "Four Rows a Day" project has generated an actual sock! It's weird how projects move toward completion when you work on them every day. The yarn is Knitterly Things Vesper Sock (in a colorway that is not currently in stock, but every single one is delightful). And that's a tease for something fun we have planned for May--stay tuned!
