I just realized shawls have become my new socks. I always have a pair resting in various stages of completion to pull out when I go places or just need time to rest my brain from pattern overload. Nordic Wind by cabinfour was recently completed in Lett Lopi and I have her Wapiti wound in Isager 2 Alpaca Merino, ready to cast on. Finishing up Chart 1 of Amy Christoffers Gold Rush in Romney Ridge Farm Blend, our KAL for April and cabinfour has just released Farmhouse, which is now calling my name. Haven't decided yet if it will be Quince & Co.'s Owl or Swans Island Yarn All American Collection Worsted. www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/nordic-windhttp://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/wapiti

Our fearless Saturday morning girls braved our building's leaking roof, crews shoveling off the roof and destroying icicles and mounds of snow in front of the shop to spend some time with us before the blizzard sets in this afternoon. Now the flakes are flying and we are bugging out at 3:00. Stay safe and we are off to battle the lines at the grocery store. ... See MoreSee Less

Are your hands brutally dry? Are your knitting projects fuzzing up from rough skin patches on your fingers? All this snow and frigid temperatures are turning our hands and fingers into sandpaper. We are happy to say that Ellie has just sent us down a new batch of her Knitter's Cream Goat Milk Lotion to add to our new Queen Bee Fibers Healing Honey Lotion. It's time for a treat. ...
