Join our Norma Sweater KAL!

  Our Norma Sweater KAL is going strong. Join us and find the chatter on our Ravelry group thread here! Here are some of our tips for working through this fabulous pattern!

And when it gets too warm, the cool shade of the forest is always right there.   ...

The Popple Bandana pattern is available now on our pattern pages, or on Ravelry.  We're offering kits for this one too -- it takes a 100 gram skein of either Dimond Laine Elmer Fingering or Dimond Laine Elmer Tweed Fingering and a...

Weekend Away Redux!

This week we're also celebrating our friend, Gaye Glasspie (@ggmadeit), her beautiful projects, and her love of all things orange. When our Weekend Away pattern debuted in our Percy and Birdie yarns, GG and Sarah knit them up in two favorite orange hues and we offer them here in case you want one too! Sarah knit hers using Percy in the color Fluorange and Birdie in the color OMGG. GG knit her version with the same colors, but with Percy in color OMGG and Birdie in the color Fluorange. So much fun to be subtly twinning! Purchase a kit for Weekend Away: 🧶GG’s Weekend Away Kit: 3 skeins Percy in color OMGG; 2 skeins Birdie in color Fluorange🧶Sarah’s Weekend Away Kit:...
