It's almost July and we are looking forward to more blue skies and outdoor knitting (& crocheting & spinning)! What projects have you planned for summer making? It's always inspiring to see what others are making, so send us your photos of your progress and we will share them on our Facebook page.
Our fall products will start to roll in soon, and rumor has it that
some Tosh Merino Light may be in the shop this weekend! We have been waiting months for this gorgeous yarn. It sells quickly, so hurry in! Also, on the way are more Binkwaffle bags...yay!
We have a good selection of one skein project samples that can be made in a day or a weekend. Fast, fun, portable and perfect for travel! Stop by Tangled Puls and take a peek (and maybe pick up a project or two), and get started early on your holiday gifting!
Our World Wide Knit in Public Day outside the shop was a success, despite the wind and rainstorm. Many dedicated crafters showed up to enjoy the fellowship, prizes,and refreshments on our cozy little "front porch". Celebrating six years was a delight with this group!
Our first Passport travelers have completed their projects for the first destination! Some gorgeous shawls, by German designers, are showing up each day. Watch our Facebook page for more beautiful projects.
We appreciate all of our fantastic customers and love being able to encourage you, inspire you, and be your gathering place!

Private Lessons (1 hour private lessons by appointment, knit or crochet on Thurs 11:15 or Fri 1:30-3:30)
Stitch Dr Tuesdays
This is not a "How to Knit" class - you should already know the basics and how to read a pattern. Stitch Doctor is a group session - private help sessions are available at other times, as listed above.
Please bring the project you need help with, including needles, yarn and pattern (one project at a time). Stay part of the time, or the whole time!
Class Time: 11:15 - 12:45 Class Cost: $10 paid to the teacher
Choose Your Own Project:
The yarn shop is a great place to spend a few hours in a cool place....so save your space by registering. So many possible projects and so little time (it seems) but spending time knitting or crocheting is your personal, well deserved time and in a small class setting. See you soon!
Why not choose SOCKS? Socks are a great summer knit-small project, easy to carry with you as you travel, fun to knit, and make great gifts. Register now, as we keep this class time limited to four. See you soon!
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
Start your project in class, and attend as many sessions as you need - the class is ongoing. Once you have completed your need for help, but later need help again, you can always attend Stitch Dr Tuesdays. If you need inspiration, check out the beautiful array of models in the shop. I look forward to working with you; oh, and you do need to register and have your pattern and supplies ready to come to class.

Classes with Jessica Carey
As summer approaches, let's work on creating a lovely, airy shawl made with lightweight yarn. This pattern is very rhythmic and calming which is perfect for completing on your back patio with a cool drink. Made with basic stitches, it's an easy pattern for those that are new to crochet as well as those well versed in the craft. Snacks are provided.
