Yoth Yarns Baby!

I know Yoth Yarns has quite the following what with it's Farm House chic colorways and ludicrously sensational bases. I follow them. They manage the impossible. They're like lovable, relatable, huggable hipsters. At shows I would moan as I walked by their booth because I always missed out on the colors I wanted as I took too long debating over whether or not I wanted to stand in their Splash Mountainesque line since I have the patience and zen-like qualities of a fruit fly with road rage. But then the most wonderful thing happened. Yoth Yarns called us and asked if we were interested in carrying them in our shop! Us! Now I know I am not the only one in love with Yoth. So we decided to take them up on their offer, for you, the people. Well, it was partly for you. Mostly for me. But you know, I like you guys too.


Shibui Trunk Show!

We've already debuted the dazzling Twig, Pebble, and Silk Cloud lines from Shibui and and now we have a wonderful sampling of garments to show just how amazingly this yarn knits up. The shell I'm wearing carries Twig and Pebble together to provide a soft, breathable top while my fun two-tone cardigan is knit exclusively in Twig giving it extra lightness and drape. We have many more wonderfully easy knits to provide you with inspiration and to really show off this delectable yarn. By the way, did anyone notice my cutie sheep pin from Lickin' Flames?

Dizzy Blonde Studios!

Make sure you stop in on Saturday 9/16 to meet Laura. She is a hoot! Hailing from Orange County, CA Laura is a small batch independent hand dyer who named her company after her dizzy blonde rescue pup Trixie who you can find pictured on every skein of yarn. Some of you might already recognize Dizzy Blonde Studios from the Lambie Toes sock yarn line we've carried in the shop where each color is named after a quote from the cult hit Firefly. Laura will be bringing oodles of fantabulous additional lines with her and you are certainly in for a treat! So make sure you come in to meet her!


We had the best time this weekend at the Noro Yarn Tastings! Fashion shows, raffle winner excitement, and creepy yarn fondling. It was the coolest! We're trying to talk them into doing another one soon. Maybe space themed this time. Although Lynn already shot down our plan of ordering a life size Alien for the shop; and before we could even just place the order and ask for forgiveness later with our super special cute faces that you just can't help but love. She's such a bummer sometimes.
