Super Secret Yarn
Coming Soon
If you've been following my blog you have read about a new yarn that we will be bringing into the store. It will debut at the Knitter's Frolic - we will be the first store in the world to have it. It's still a secret but I'm going to share a bit of information with you.
Elder Tree Shawl - pattern available on Ravelry
  • there are 5 yarns
  • there will be 20 colours and all yarns will be available in these colours
  • I have personally knit with all 5 yarns and I can say that you will like them
  • the yarn will be available to order on the website on Saturday, April 26
  • the yarn will be in the store Tuesday, April 29
This is what a few of my knitters are saying about the yarn.

"This yarn is really, really lovely.  It feels smooth to knit, and blocks up deliciously soft.  And the colors are wonderful!"

Imagine When - pattern purchased on Ravelry

"I have finished the 'secret shawl'! I really enjoyed knitting it and it turned out well. Whatever this secret yarn is, it is awesome... easy to knit with, nice bloom and drape after blocking and very soft and cozy! I will have to buy myself some when the cat is out of the bag!!!"


Keep watching the blog for more information and pictures of the yarn knit up in fabulous garments.
