We've doubled our space in Brentwood and leased the adjacent suite (170) so...that's good news for our local customers. Our expanded retail store will be opening on Sept 1st with a wide array of products available to see and purchase including over 2,000 different yarns! . We've added a classroom training area and are lining up a full schedule of classes on Knitting, Spinning, Crochet and Felting. Stay tuned for a download of the finalized schedule!
If you've ever struggled with the decrease section when knitting a hat on 16-inch circular needles, you need to learn the Magic Loop method of knitting. Similarly, if you hate how sweater sleeves twist up while knitting in the round, you need to learn the magic loop technique.
This technique works on just about any size project, so you can use it exclusively for smaller projects in the round, such as hats, sleeves, mittens, cowls, socks, and so on.
Kelley just finished knitting the Shift Cowl by Andrea Mowry, and she's fallen in love with mosaic knitting.
While it sounds complicated or fiddly—mosaics are made up of little pieces of glass, after all—mosaic knitting is super easy. Seriously, you end up with a beautiful colorwork project, but you're only using one color in each row.
