Anzula Luxury Fibers Trunk Show

We are having a special showing of Anzula yarns, showcasing some new colors and your past favorites. Starting Tuesday, September 8 through Saturday, September 19 you can come by and fondle the luxury fibers from one of our favorite local dyers, Sabrina Famellos-Schmidt.

For those of you who couldn't be at Sock Summit, we will have an assortment of the special colors she designed for the Dye for Glory contest. The colors are Beer O'Clock, 1 Red Shoe and Ode to the Sock. These went really fast at the show so come in early and get yours!

Some of the luscious fibers are Sea Cell/Silk, Superfine Merino/Alpaca, Superwash Merino/Cashmere/Nylon and of course our standby's of Merino Lace and Superwash Merino/Nylon.

Come roll in the yarn with us! (Ok, not really. Sounded good though didn't it?)

Origami Sweater

Our latest sweater Knitalong is the Origami Sweater designed by Linda Daniels. I have to say NONE of the pictures that you see on Ravelry give justice to the pure genius design of this sweater. It honestly doesn't get any easier. Two rectangles, simple stitch pattern, 4 seams, and voila you get the most cheeky design. Dolman sleeves, scooped back ... delicious. It's what I call Couture Knitting. It feels like a cloud of a shawl but stays on like a sweater.

We are still placing orders for the kits, you'll have to come by the store, check out the sample cards, and order what works best for you. We've got a card full of beautiful Melange colors (what I would call heathered) and 3 tiers of beautiful solids. Probably about 80 colors to choose from in all. And I'm not exaggerating. So far it has looked great on almost everyone who has tried it on. It is available in S/M and L/XL.

If you'd like to join in on the newest knitting sensation, please stop by or give us a call. We'd love to have you join in for your next "Favorite" sweater.
