Have you been hankering for a new jacket? Our Garter Stripe Jacket Kit is now available online!  This cozy jacket is always a hit at fiber shows. Kits are available in a range of sizes starting at just $96.00 ($76.62 during the winter sale if you use code winter2018).

Shown in Lyanna Blue, Gilmarite, Pewter and Hydrangea FLOW.  Create your very own signature jacket by choosing four different colors for your kit; three non-FLOW colors and one FLOW colorway.  The finished garment runs large, so choose one size smaller if you need to.

Brahmin Moth Shawl in Sapphire, Chabazite and Bristol Pool.

What about a new shawl? Our Brahmin Moth Shawl is a fun project. A series of large miters and slip stitches and lots of garter stitch make this an adventurous (and intermediate) knit. For spectacular results chose three colorways; two colorways that you love, and one colorway that ties them together.

 

Slippy Cowl
Kathleen’s Slippy Cowl in ModeLuxe DK

 

Cowl anyone? Our Slippy Cowl will add a pop of color to any dark winter day! Choose two highly contrasting colors of Worsted or DK to achieve  the colorwork effect. The secret is you’re only knitting with one color at a time! If you can knit and purl, you can make this cowl!

 

Spinny Chullo in ModeSock

Do you crochet? Our Spinny Chullo kit is for you! This chullo is an excellent crochet adventure. Written for an intermediate crocheter, an adventurous beginner could work it as well.

Choose two contrasting colors and get started on your hat!

Our 2018 Spring Travel Schedule

Our 2018 Spring Travel schedule is set, and boy it’s a DOOZY!

We’ve added a few new-to-us shows, we’re headed back to a show we did a few years ago, and we’re definitely back at our usual spring shows!

 

 

Annie is teaching at MANY of these shows, we’ll update the blog and our calendar as soon as we know her schedule.

The unknown knitter!

We’re super excited to be heading back to Madison, WI for the Madison Knitter’s Guild Knit-In. It’s been a few years since we’ve done this show, and we’re happy to be back!  Did you know our yarns are carried by Wisconsin Craft Market?  If you’re in the Madison area stop by their amazing store and see all they have to offer!

We’re also thrilled to be at Yarn Con this year! We’ve wanted to participate for several years now, but always had another show the same weekend.  Our schedules aligned, and we’re headed to Chicago!

Did you see that pink llama?

We’re back at Interweave Yarn Fest in Loveland, CO (where Annie is teaching) and Yarnover in Minneapolis, MN (one of our hometown shows). We love both shows and are looking forward to seeing friends old and new!

Kathleen is headed to Mid-Plains Fiber Fair in York, NE with someone from our part-time staff while Annie heads to Andy’s college graduation.

Mid-Plains is a new show for us ( it’s their second year) and we’re looking forward to it.  We’re back together again the following week at Shepherd’s Harvest in Lake Elmo, MN.  Shepherd’s Harvest is one of our absolute favorite shows of the year!

We then load up and head out the The Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Fest and Great Lakes Fiber Show. Both shows are absolute gems; just large enough to be exciting and just small enough to get to know everyone.

Where will we see you in 2018?

Three on Thursday-Snow Day Edition

One of our New Year’s intentions is to blog more in 2018.  We kind of fell away from blogging last year as we got busier with shows and travel.  And today is the perfect day to blog because it’s SNOWING!

Outside Kathleen’s side door!

 

It been a snow drought this winter here in Saint Paul, so  a snow day is exciting and fun!  (Well, until the deep freeze comes back tonight and everything ices over…)  It’s been frigid up until the past few days. Then it got warm (34 degrees!). And now it’s back to below zero. Brrrrrrrr.

 

 

 

Three Perfect Things About a Snow Day

  1. A snow day is the perfect day to catch up on paperwork!  Today I’m organizing things to send off to our accountant for taxes. It’s so easy to let these little jobs pile up, but it’s nice to have the time to get organized.
  2. A snow day is also great for online shopping! I ordered this binder to carry at shows to hold our sales tax licenses and applications and all the paperwork I’m always stashing in my bag or the cash box.
  3. A snow day is the perfect day for some knitting! I’ve decided I need some finger-less mitts to wear at our spring shows, so I’m planning on casting on Ragtop by Susan Lawrence in our ModeWerk Worsted, color Daenerys’ Eyes.
