“Every ball or skein of yarn holds something inside it, and the great mystery of what that might be can be almost spiritual”
Spring has sprung, folks, and that means it’s time to switch gears and move to little, light weight projects. No more afghans or sweaters that cover your lap and keep you cozy. Now is the time for something small and manageable that you can pack around from spot to spot as you enjoy the sunshine and warm weather. Well, if you are looking for a project, we have one for you! Starting Thursday, May 2nd (lasting until May 23rd) we will be hosting the Mount Airy Sock Knit-Along. Come join us on Thursdays during the month of May from 12:30 to 1:30 and knit a pair of socks, for you or someone knit worthy in your life. We love this pattern and we know you will, too!
Remember, guys, t-shirt orders are due by Tuesday, April 23rd. After that day, our Manatee and Crab ReBelle shirts will only be available in one color and limited sizes. So, get those orders in!! You can even order online- https://mkt.com/rebelle/item/t-shirt-preorder
