Welcome back.

We hope your holiday was wonderful.  Did you finish your Christmas knitting?  Have you cast on something new for yourself or are you still knitting for others?  If you need some inspiration to get your new year off to a creative start, we can help.

We Had a Little Surprise


Jo Ippolito Christensen, author of The Needlepoint Book, stopped by the shop to say hello.  We had a great visit with her and she even signed our copies of her book.  What a treat.


One Final Announcement

If we are holding yarn for you in the office, you should pick it up.  We will be re-shelving it next week.

  1. Enjoyed reading your news letter. I am in Western North Carolina after 5 1/2 feet during Katrina. I am pleased to tell you that Jo Ippoloto Christensen’ s book survived the water and I am glad to have a copy.

    • We don’t know when your Kitchen Witch will come in. The finishers take a couple of weeks off after the Christmas Rush.


    • We will be doing a basic cuff down sock with a heel flap style heel. If you want, we could incorporate a pattern into it for you, since you are no longer a beginner, eh?
