Sparkle, Color & Fun

As we prepare for the first Pacific NW Knitting Machine Seminar, we'll be sharing sneak peeks of the classes and topics our many instructors will be covering, such as Short Rows I:
Discover innovative tricks for using short rows to create a variety of unusual, eye-catching garments - including this trendy newsboy cap and matching scarf - during Linda Jensen's Short Rows I class!
See the full list of classes on our website - and even register online to take advantage of our Early Bird Special which ends in 5 short days!!

Deck yourself out in colors like this and make those spring blooms wilt with envy. 100% made in America superwash sock wool from Done Roving is now available online!

I hate to be a tease but during our Saturday Open House, Marsha came in with her Pot 'O Gold scarf started! It'll be several weeks before we find it back on our shelves but that doesn't mean you can't order it now! Laura also walked out with two of her own colors; one being a true cyan (Southwestern Gem) which is not a friendly color when it comes to cameras but boy is it BRIGHT! I'm sure I'll be attempting to capture shots of it anyway, its just too hard to resist. See more colors, and keep your eye on this page New stock will be arriving soon!

The cotton that's as soft as your favorite t-shirt now comes with sequins! We've got all the colors in stock so order today and start your eye-catching summer project. Isn't that the craziest!! Homey soft cotton with sequins! Such opposites! Cute summer cardigans or vests for little girls, or a open lacey bathing suit cover-up are the first thiings of thought of for this yarn. On the needles, I am merging 3 of Knitting Pure and Simple's patterns for a cap sleeve summer cardigan for a two yr old. Ad-or-a-ble !!! See more colors at

Relax and knit up something simple with your favorite yarn. Today I am showing you my latest COMPLETED (yes, I finished something!!) project: the Side to Side Pullover (#124) from Knitting Pure and Simple. I experimented a little and decided to use one of mt favorite yarns: Lorna's Laces Heaven. I knit it without ease, and allowed the looseness of the knit confirm to my body, thus giving it a fitted look. The pattern is actually knit much looser and drapes loosely down the body. Very cute!!!
