New In The Shop

Robyn has been at the dye pot again and she's dyed up some of her favorite fiber, Falkland.  The fiber is made to be spun, so the colors won't muddy.
She's also dyed up some sock yarn.  It's 90% Superwash Merino and 10% nylon, the perfect blend for sturdy, wooly socks!  Each 100g skein contains 384 yards and it knits up great on a size 2 needle.  

We have a fresh batch bags from Binkwaffle!  Binkwaffle bags have a unique design that allow them to close securely, but open widely, to allow you easy access to whatever you store inside.  These bags make great project bags with a single handle you can sling on your arm and carry with you while you knit.  The bags are made from sturdy fabric and are completely reversible!  That's like having two bags in one!
Speaking of project bags, we also have these great little bags (above), just perfect for small projects.  They are made from silk and have interior zipper pockets and at only $20, they are a great deal!  We also have some larger colorful bags (below) that work great for large projects or as general tote bags or purses for your non-yarn needs!
We also started carrying these Tjanting tools and batik wax for those of you who were inspired by the batik class we had earlier this Spring.
Yarn of the Month
Blue Sky Worsted Cotton is the yarn of the month for May and we're offering a whopping 20% off!!  Blue Sky cotton is like no other cotton you have ever felt, it's soft and lofty, aran weight, with 150 yards per 100g.  Knitters love this yarn for baby items, chemo caps, sweaters, and accessories for people allergic to wool.  Here are some patterns that look great for this yarn.  Organic Heirloom Baby Blanket, Girl's Sundress, Knit Chickens, Bunny Blanket Buddy, Super Natural Stripes (baby/toddler cardigan), Soft Cotton Dish Towels, and Summer Open Cardigan.
Featured Upcoming Classes
Intro to Drop Spinning ($35)
Come join Robyn a fun afternoon of learning to spin yarn on a drop spindle. Drop spindles are an inexpensive way to get a taste of what goes into the creation of yarn. In this class you will learn basic spindling techniques and some simple plying methods. This is a beginning class so no prior experience is needed. The class price includes a drop spindle and 2oz of combed top, if you already have the supplies you can take $15 off the class price.
Sunday, June 26th 4-6pm
Introduction to Wheel Spinning ($35)

In this first class you will learn about the basic mechanics and maintenance** of a spinning wheel, types of fibers and fiber preparation methods used for spinning, and the fundamentals of spinning a basic yarn. You will need to bring a spinning wheel* and 2-4 oz of prepared wool fiber (roving, top, rolags, or carded batts.)
In the second class we will ply the singles spun after the first class. We will learn about setting the twist and finishing the yarn. We will also go over how to incorporate your handspun yarns into your knitting projects.
*If you don't own a spinning wheel, there are two shop wheels available to rent for this class for an extra $15. You will also receive a certificate for another 5 hours of post-class spinning wheel time or half off a weekend rental which will allow you to practice what you learn in the class.
