JUNE 2021
Happy Spring!? (or should I say "Spring that feels more like Summer?) I'm happy to have finished my last sweater, in wool, and to be able to wear it once before the weather changed. Now I'm onto a couple of more summery knits before I start on some Fall 2021 models!
The shop has been busy, and most of the yarn-supply issues caused by Covid are resolving. There are still some backorders, I'm thinking those yarns must still be on the sheep!

  • Lets talk about masks..... The feedback that I've been getting here in the shop is that many would be most comfortable continuing to wear masks in the shop for a bit longer. l think I would like to move forward by requiring masks through June, and will revisit again at the end of June. (All of us here working at the shop HAVE been vaccinated!)
  • Spring/Summer shop hours will stay the same: Tuesday-Saturday 10-3. We will continue to offer porch pickup, and shopping by appointment. (Please try to call a day ahead!)
  • Classes! We will tentatively and carefully begin to offer some group knitting-help classes. We've also been running lots of private and semi-private classes and will continue to do that. See below for our first class!
  • SHOP HOP!! Yes, we'll be having a Shop Hop this year: I-91 SUMMER VACATION SHOP HOP! The dates will be August 10-21. Passports are on sale now - $5
  • FIBER FESTIVAL of NEW ENGLAND will be happening this year - November 6 & 7, 2021, at The Big E fairgrounds in West Springfield, MA. It will be such a treat to have an in-person event!
  • SUMMER SALE??? Last year's summer sale was the first year that I've used my porch for the sale yarns. Doing so minimized the traffic inside the store and also gave me space to really spread out the clearance. So, this year's sale will look much the same! Keep tuned for sale dates.
