Every so often I find myself cleaning out projects and going through stash bins, yes I said it, stash bins. As careful as we all might be, there seems to be a skein or two without a wrapper that is totally unrecognizable. Ashley Little has written a great How-to post on Craftsy to determine yarn weights. All you need is a pencil, ruler and her handy chart. This little know-how should be taped to the top of your stash bin.....or in my case, bins. www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/11/determining-yarn-weights/... See MoreSee Less

Morning classes are cancelled today. PM classes will be held, if we have enough students. Please leave us a message or email so Heather and Tracey can be prepared. The shop will be open 1:00 to 5:00 today for anyone who needs to stock up for our next two "white" events. ... See MoreSee Less
Unless you have had your head buried in the sand for the past two days Snowmageddon is hours away. That said, ITL will not be open tomorrow and all classes are cancelled. We are also canceling Wednesday's AM classes and will address store hours and evening classes on Wednesday AM based upon road conditions and power. Desperate times call for hitting the stash or maybe giving a UFO a reprieve. Stay safe and enjoy Mother Nature's Way of saying sit back and enjoy the ride! ... See MoreSee Less

Oh Woolfolk you are killing us. Just look at their newest release from Michele Wang, the Lowe Cardigan knit in Woolfok Far. I only have two luscious skeins that Pam was so kind to bring back from VK Live last week, which is surely not enough, but we will happily wait to hear back from Kristin in the early spring for ITL to become a Woolfok stockist. www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lowe-cardigan (2 photos) ...
