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.
