Exciting news alert!
Don’t miss our exclusive pop-up sale on Dream in Color and The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers yarn. All non-sale yarn from Dream in Color and The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers is 20% off starting today through August 31st.
From Dream in Color, we have Smooshy with Cashmere which is a luscious blend of superwash merino, cashmere, and nylon. The yarn is soft for next to the skin, but it can also be used in a pair of socks because of its nylon content. Dream in Color has a unique dyeing process that gives their yarn deep and gorgeous tones.
We also have Jilly which is a single ply fingering weight yarn. The colors are spectacular again due to Dream in Color’s unique dying process. This yarn makes fantastic shawls and light sweaters.

From The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers, we have Foxy Lady which is a fingering weight superwash merino and silk blend. Foxy Lady appears very delicate, but because of its high twist, the yarn has support and structure making it perfect for “any farm or town girl.”
And finally, there is Mighty Mo which is a lace-weight mohair and silk blend yarn. It is light and soft and adds a feathery halo to what you are stitching. On its own, use it for drapey shawls and cowls. When paired with another yarn, sweaters, hats and shawls come out spectacular.
Here are a few project ideas for Foxy Lady:

September Class reminder:
Learn to Knit Class with Margaux:
(Only one spot left.)
Novice Level class. No prior knitting experience is required.
Mondays, September 11th and 25th from 11am-12:30pm
Knitting is an enjoyable, social, and mentally enriching hobby. Plus, you get to wear or gift the results of your effort when you finish a project. Yarn comes in a gorgeous assortment of different colors and fibers, and as you knit, you get to create many types of textures. Who wouldn’t want to cast-on and give knitting a try!
The project we make in my learn to knit class is a cowl where we repeat stitches to create mastery and muscle memory. After nine years of teaching, I have found this to be the most successful way to learn to knit.
Skills covered in the class are the knit stitch, the purl stitch, long-tail cast-on, knitting in the round, reading a pattern, reading your knitting, picking up dropped stitches, binding-off, weaving in ends, finishing, and a general understanding of yarn and gauge.
*Yarn needed for the class is 3 skeins of Alpakka Ull from Sandnes Garn or 2 skeins of Ultra-Alpaca from Berroco, a US #8 24inch circular needle, and a size G (4mm) crochet hook.
Intermediate Level Class - Students should feel comfortable knitting, purling, and reading a written pattern and have successfully knit a project using magic loop before taking this class.
Thursdays from 9:30-11am September 14th and 28th.
Musselburgh from Ysolda Teague is the most popular project on Ravelry. What makes Musselburgh fun is that it is knit from the top down which is unusual for a hat. It can be knit in one color or two if you want your brim to be a different color, or as the hat is reversible, you can make it two different colors. Make the hat for yourself or as a gift for someone special.
Skills taught in this class will be: a review of the Magic-Loop kntting in the round technique; the Pinhole Cast-On; the make-one left (M1L) and make-one right (M1R), and how to modify your hat so that you can have a different colored brim, or have the hat be reversible in a different color. We will also review measuring gauge.
*Yarn needed in this class is a total of 100-150 grams of fingering, sport or dk wool yarn in one or two colors, two sets of needles one 16” circular and one 32” circular in the appropriate size for your yarn and stitch markers.
Please note that for all classes:
*Yarn needs to be purchased from Wasatch and Wool Yarns, but class participants will receive a 10% discount on non-sale supplies. They will also receive a 10% discount on the final day of class. We recommend that needles are purchased from Wasatch and Wool as there are significant differences between needle brands.
*Classes, if cancelled 10 days before the first day of class, can be exchanged for a future class only. We enforce this policy on behalf of our teachers who have committed their time and expertise. There are no exchanges or refunds for classes cancelled less than 10 days from the first day of class. Participants not using yarn from Wasatch and Wool will be charged an additional $30.
Do you need a quick refresher on how to do a Slip Slip Knit (SSK) or a Left-Slanting Make 1 (M1L)? Do you want someone to look over your project every now and then to see how you are progressing, or even some structured time to complete a project that has been on your needles for much too long? Our new help sessions may be exactly what you are looking for. Our next help session will be Tuesday, August 22nd from 9:30-11am and will cost $15. This is a great opportunity to ask the 5 minute (or less) question. Please email or call us to reserve your spot.
If you need more in-depth help, such as learning to knit or needing us to read through an entire multi-page pattern, you will want to take advantage of private lessons that are now being taught at the store. Classes are $20 per half hour and $35 for a full hour. Please ask us for more information and to schedule a time for you to meet with one of our instructors.
