Advent calendar

12 Knits of Christmas - 12 of our favourite and most-popular knits in the store. We’ll be announcing a new one every 2 days (starts today, Dec 1st). Come into the store to buy materials for that pattern on those 2 days, you will get 15% off your purchase of the yarn & pattern if applicable for that project. More details on the blog.

New Classes are online, and we are still adding them

Brown Bag Sock Club will return in January. Sign-Ups will open online on December 1st - $65/person. Only 20 spots are available. If you are from out of town, shipping will be extra. Participants meet on January 21, February 18, and March 18 and receive a brown bag with a mystery ball of yarn inside, as well as a progress keeper.
No two balls of yarn are the same, and if you don’t like yours there will be an opportunity to swap yarns with others who are present on the bag collection date
You can participate if you are out of town, but you will have to pay for the shipping, and you won’t have the chance to swap yarns.  Registration starts on Dec 4! :)

Christmas Window is in place!
