Scrunchy Cowl

The Scrunchy Cowl pattern is brought to you by one of our regulars--Astrid Schmidt-Nielsen. We used two skeins of the Frog Tree Chunky Alpaca. This yarn is so soft and squishy and works nicely with the cables that weave throughout. You can easily knit this cowl up in a few nights and wear it immediately. Total instant gratification! Not to mention, alpaca can be a good choice for the people in your life that are wool sensitive. Scrunchy Cowl is a free pattern on Ravelry and you will get the Frog Tree Chunky Alpaca at 15% for this month.

Welcome to our brand new website!

  We are so happy to bring you our new website! It's cleaner and simpler to navigate and we really hope you all like it. Among the changes; in an effort to keep our class prices from going up, we have decided to eliminate the on-line class registration option. From now on, to register for a class, event or workshop, simply call the shop during business hours. That way, we not only don't get hit with extra on-line processing fees, we get a chance to talk with you! As always, we will feature our Project of the Month, and our blog. The Gallery is now linked to social media so make sure and take a look at it, it's so much fun. We hope you are as happy with the new site as we are!
