Spring is the season for lace knitting. This Clarus shawl by Laura Nelkin is knitted top down consisting of two triangles with a center panel. It looks lovely knitted in 100% fingering weight merino Island Yarn Papyrus. You can admire the shawl hanging in our court-side store window. Or come in to try it on, and pick your favorite color of Papyrus for the shawl.
This Saturday, from noon til four-ish, We are celebrating the arrival of our new Plymouth yarns with a BIG Event! Kaelin Hearn, our new Plymouth rep, will be here to introduce the new yarns. In addition to “yarn tasting,” Kaelin will be discussing color theory, giving color advice, and presenting general pointers about finding the right yarn for a particular project. AND, here’s the best part: there will be door prizes!
We know you won’t want to miss this free event. All we ask is that you give us a call (277-1164) or send us an email to reserve your space. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
By the way, while you’re here on Saturday, be sure to visit the booths and enjoy the music at the Triphammer Marketplace’s “Artisan Bazaar,” which will be running from 10 am until 4.
A huge shipment of Plymouth Yarns arrived this week. How huge you ask? The boxes weighed 250 pounds! While we are still unboxing, we are adding the following “vegan” yarns in the shipment to today’s Happy Hour Sale (20% off):
- Plymouth Bambastic (60% bamboo rayon, 40% nylon, DK weight): see the photo for available bright spring colors and store sample. This yarn feels incredibly soft.
