Do you get all excited when you find a new pattern that just screams at you .... MAKE ME!!! 

Shaye showed us the Ipsa Tunisian Crochet Afghan crochet-along the other day, and of course Ann has already made her swatch! One block a month - it started already but that is ok ....  we play catch up really well!!

So what do you think all those of you who have taken the Tunisian Crochet class with Ann?  Ready to tackle something like this ---- little bites!?!?!? and the designer has AWESOME tutorials on her site.  (for lefties too!!) 

Ann has another Tunisian class on Monday (yes, tomorrow) so you can give Tunisian a try ---  it is said to be a blend of knitting & crochet but with one stick!!

The other pattern that caught my eye is the Spacetime sweater from Heidi Kirrmaier done in DK yarn.

I am thinking of bringing in Lang Yarns Secret Garden (84% cotton). I think it would be great in Emma's Cotton DK as well as the Berroco DK yarns that are on sale this week! 

I like the detail for the increases from the neck down......  what do you think should we offer this as a Knit-along?? A Friday night or Sunday afternoon?? hmmm ... let us know!

Always something New and exciting in the shop ...
Image
Have you ever admired hand-dyed yarns but never sure what to do it them - and then you look and notice that most of them are fingering weight (whatever that means - other than it seems thin .. oh so thin!).

Yes, most of it is fingering weight yarn because there are so many patterns, shawls and scarves that can be made in this weight with just one skein. We can carry more of the dyers colorways in single or two skeins for you to choose from ... remember we will be happy to order whatever quantities you need in the other weights for your project. 

We hope you will read on and see what Marie Greene has to say about buying hand-dyed yarns,

5 Reasons to Love Hand-dyed Yarn
an exerpt from Marie Greene.....
If you’re headed to a fiber festival or just excited to shop for your next skein, today I’m sharing 5 reasons to choose hand dyed yarn for your next project.
Knitting (& crocehting) are so much more than just a hobby, aren't they? It’s an art form —a way to express creativity, unwind from the stress of daily life, and produce something beautiful and functional. Working with quality materials can make such a difference (both to the experience and the finished product), and hand-dyed yarn offers a unique palette that can transform any project from ordinary to extraordinary.
Here are five reasons to bring more hand-dyed yarn into your life.
1. Uniqueness and Originality
If you’ve ever watched a yarn dyer at work, you know that each skein of hand-dyed yarn is a masterpiece in its own right. The artisanal process of hand-dyeing ensures that no two skeins are exactly alike, even within the same dye lot. This uniqueness allows knitters to work with a material that is as individual as their project. Whether you’re knitting a scarf, sweater, or shawl, hand-dyed yarn adds a level of originality that simply can’t be replicated with mass-produced yarns. It’s like having a custom paint job on your knitted piece—no one else will have one quite like it.
2. Depth of Color
Have you ever looked closely at a skein of hand dyed yarn? The depth and nuance of color is unlike anything a machine can produce. Using a range of various techniques, dyers can create rich, layered hues with subtle variations and tonal shifts that add incredible dimension to your work. And every dyer’s work is unique! Their creative, complex colorways can enhance the texture of your stitches, giving a simple pattern depth and vibrancy. Whether it’s the gentle fade of a sunset or the intense depth of a stormy sea, hand-dyed yarn captures the nuances of color like nothing else.
3. Supporting Small Businesses and Artisans
By choosing hand-dyed yarn, you’re supporting small businesses and independent artisans who pour their passion and creativity into every dye pot. (And if you’ve ever watched a yarn dyer at work, you know the process is complex; every skein is a true labor of love.) Our support helps sustain a community of craftspeople who value quality and craftsmanship over mass production. When we choose to knit with hand dyed yarn, we’re creating a closer connection between the maker and the material – and as knitters, we get to become part of the story. This connection between makers adds another layer of meaning to everything we knit.
4. Inspiration for Creativity
If you’re looking for inspiration, a skein of hand-dyed of yarn is a great place to start; the varied blends and vibrant hues can serve as a springboard for your next idea. Grab a skein of hand dyed yarn off your shelf, open it up, and you’ll see what I mean. A single skein can inspire an entire project by influencing your choice of texture and providing a direction for color pairing. I find that working with hand-dyed yarn sparks our imagination in new ways, encouraging us to try different patterns, stitches, or techniques that we might not have considered otherwise. Hand-dyed yarn challenges you to think outside the box and let your creativity lead the way.
5. Quality and Care
Hand-dyed yarns are typically produced in small batches, allowing dyers to maintain a high level of quality and attention to detail throughout the process. And the dyers I know are mindful about using premium yarn from trusted sources; many opt for eco-friendly dyes and processes. The personal time and attention that goes into every skein ensures that the yarn is not only beautiful, but also durable and lovely to work with.
Ready to Cast On?
Incorporating hand-dyed yarn into your knitting projects offers a range of benefits—from enhancing the uniqueness and beauty of your work to supporting passionate artisans within the crafting community, so stop by soon and grab a skein and a discount!

FEATURED WOMEN ARTISTS: The first week of March we are featuring our potters & Emma's yarn. 
Carol: Carol's pottery features earthy tones with patterns, especially those formed by dots. She crafts her pieces with a wheel and by hand. An avid garderner, nature has provided Carol with a constant source of inspiration for her art. She said she's fortunate to live next to the Upton State Forest and Lake Whitehall in Hopkinton, and according to her she focuses on using her "own value system to interpret images from nature."

Catherine: Worcester Center for Crafts provides Catherine studio space where she is able to produce hand thrown, hand-fired pottery pieces that are just lovely. A technique that she particularly enjoys is 'raku'. These functional and decorative items are one of a kind, and make lovely gifts!

Sue: Sue makes every piece by hand in her home-studio and also offers classes to teach others. She mainly works with stoneware and porcelain, and creates all of the glaze colors herself. Sue's handmade pottery consists of nature inspired pieces, with strong bee, dragonfly, birds and flowers themes. She enjoys making lovely intricately designed mugs, trays, yarn bowls, flower frogs and mason jar charms!
 
 Emma’s Yarn was started by Emma, a (then) 15 year-old homeschooled student who fell in love with dyeing yarn when learning ratios in her math lesson. Her eye for color is amazing! It wasn’t long before she started selling small batches in her parents’ yarn shop, and when that proved to be successful, moved production from her kitchen to a dye studion downtown. Her sister, Aspen, joined her after graduating college and together they built Emma's Yarn into what it is today.
