We just stocked new colors of Tahki Yarns’ Mesa and Filatura di Crosa’s sequin-y carry-along, Starlux. They’d be fun to knit together – create something warm, colorful, and sparkly this winter!


Stop the presses!

All other knitting projects are currently on hold except for the Square Rainbow blanket which also needs to be finished within a time frame.
