Join us on Saturday, December 7 from 9 AM to Noon as we learn to knit the Sideways Ribbed Hat!

There are many ways to make hats. This hat pattern has some unique features that can be used in many different projects. In this three-hour class you will learn: how to make a buttonhole; how to pick up stitches; and how to do decreases!

By taking the class, you’ll receive:
  • 1 skein of Manos Maxima or Gloria (color of your choice)
  • 1 Sideways Ribbed Hat Pattern
  • 1 small ball of scrap yarn for your practice swatch
  • A 20% discount on all purchases the day of the class

Manos Maxima!

This fabulous hand-dyed, worsted weight yarn is 100% merino and is incredibly soft. It comes in a wide variety of semi-solid as well as variegated colors.

As you know, we love Manos del Uruguay, not just because it's beautiful and a great value, but also because it's a Fair Trade yarn from a Woman's Cooperative that has been empowering women since 1968!

Manos is owned and run by the women that make the yarn, allowing them to stay in their communities and care for their families. It's more than a yarn, it's a pathway to a higher quality of life, which is why we carry every yarn they make in every color. Don't be fooled by cheap imitations!

And for now, we're offering Manos Maxima at 10% off!

Make this fabulous hat with only 1 skein of Maxima!

We love our Addi needles, as do most knitters. This month, we're delighted to offer the 'gold standard' of interchangeable needles, the addi 'Click' sets at 15% off!

You may say "I have enough needles", and you just might, but it's so nice to know you have almost all the needles you'll need in one handy wallet that's easy to take with you on a trip or to your knitting group.

These will also ship for FREE!
Auntie Woolie Says...

The year is winding down and like you, we're all very busy. We hope you're not too busy to remember to take time for yourself and the ones you love. The end of the year is a great time to think about what's important to us. In our own lives, and the lives of our community, and our world.

It's one of the reasons we love the fiber arts so much. It forces us to slow down, to take note of our stitches, to feel the fiber in our hands, and to think about the people that made this yarn.

Our products come from around the world, and we try to be selective about not only the value to you, but also where the yarn comes from. We're all fiber fans, so we all share a connection and we try to be cognizant of that.

Again, thank you all for your continued support.

We wish you all a peaceful and joyous holiday season.

Until next time...

Happy Stitching!
Lopi Blankets!

These Icelandic Wool Blankets are perfect for those cool nights. We have a couple of these left. These are finished products, no knitting required!

If you're thinking of a gift for you or a friend, order one up today as we're told we won't be able to get them again!

Gift Cards!

As fiber fans, not everyone knows what to get us. We're here to help! Not only do we have great gift ideas, like interchangeable needle sets, but we also sell gift cards! These gift cards can be used in the shop as well as in our on-line store!

Pulse Warmer 2019!

We loved creating our Pulse Warmers last year, and so many of you enjoyed it, so we did it again!

Kris has designed another Pulse Warmer project using one skein of Cardiff Cashmere. Such a wonderful yarn. It comes in a wide range of colors so you'll be sure to find ones you love. Quick to make, you'll have plenty of time to make a pair for yourself as well as some for gifts!

We're supporters of our local community theatre, known as Cambria Center for the Arts Theatre or CCAT. This year, CCAT is offering the classic radio production of "It's a Wonderful Life"! Yes, it's the old Lux Radio show presented live in the theatre here in Cambria, with local actors providing all the voices. In addition, there is a live sound effects person!

The show is a lot of fun, and it's free! It's CCATs gift back to the community. This production is being directed by our own Oz Barron! The theatre is at 1350 Main Street. The shows are Friday December 20 at 7PM, Saturday December 21 at 2PM and again at 7PM. No Tickets Necessary - just show up!
