We're excited to announce our move to Idaho on the weekend of April 22nd. Our new location will allow us to continue growing and bring our products to the local knitters in Spokane and Northern Idaho. Our current store in Brentwood will close on April 16th. Our new shop will be opening on May 7th, 2011. Online orders will not be affected but may have a 2 day delay while we make our big move up to our new location and we plan to be back online and shipping on May 25th. Here's a photo of our new store and warehouse. We're still working on the signs but we hope you'll come and visit us! Our new store location is 1016 W. Hayden Ave, Hayden, ID 83835.
There's nothing like a pair of handknit socks. You can use gorgeous sock yarn, choose your stitch pattern, and take them with you wherever you go. One thing I've learned over the years is how to customize socks to fit my feet, and I like a rounded toe. It's important for me because my feet are fairly straight across the toes, and a pointy toe just ends up flopping around empty.
Kelley likes a rounded toe, too, and she's developed a recipe for making them for her toe-up socks. She creates her rounded toe by spreading out the increases, separating them with a growing number of knit rounds in-between.
It's summertime, and the knitting is breezy. Here are 5 great patterns to cast on (and wear!) during the summer months.
Never stop knitting, regardless of the heat!
