We can hardly believe it's the middle of March already! It seems we just turned off the Christmas music yesterday. But, we are welcoming the first glimpses of spring with open arms. We're happy to have four seasons here in Michigan, because as the weather changes, so do the knitting projects, and change is always inspiring.

Have a great day,
Thank you for your kind words of support and continued visits to our store; seeing your smiling faces makes this long winter so much shorter. Spring will be here before we know it, and most of my UFO's (unfinished objects) are somewhat winter related!
New excitement is arriving everyday in our ever-growing yarn department! Lots of natural fibers, some glitz, and pure simple color all hint at the looming Spring and Summer seasons.
For those of you who have marked March 2nd on your calendar, we have changed the date of our Trunk Show. We apologize if this has caused you any inconvenience. If you still would like to use your "Free Gift" coupon on March, 2nd we will honor it. Our eco-friendly Earth Creations clothing will now be presented on Saturday, April 13th between 1pm and 5pm. We are making sure that all of our great clothing lines are available in the store when you arrive.
The Earth Creations line pride's itself on using renewable resources in the production of its clothing, and the entire line is produced right here in the USA! The entire line is colored with natural clay dyes to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible. Check out the Earth Creations website if
So, we are excited to have you visit the store on April 13th. We'll share wine, snacks, and the beautiful Earth Creations line!
See you soon!

We have so many "new arrivals", that we decided to feature one of the most popular as a "web special." New for summer is the Dazzle yarn for necklaces and scarves; using one ball knitted or crocheted makes a simple necklace that can be enhanced with sewn on beads, buttons, and other beautiful embellishments.
This beautiful yarn is available in 8 different colors (Dye lot 101 is probably closest to the color pictured below). You are able to pick your favorites on our web-store. Not only do you get free shipping, but we have priced them as buy one get the second half off! One skein is regularly $5.75, but we're offering two skeins for $8.50. Visit our webstore now and take advantage of this amazing deal! Just click on the red STORE tab in the upper right of your screen. Once you're in the web-store click on Knitting Kits. It's the first option!
Happy Knitting (or Crocheting)!
Hi, It's Dee!
Thanks again for taking the time to visit our new website (it still feels so new!). In the coming weeks, we will be sharing some wonderful projects with you online. Here is one that is so simple and beautiful it's unbelievable.
Did you ever think it was possible to knit a vest with only one skein of yarn? Now you can. The first project we'd like to share is called the Diotima shell. It is taken from our new book entitled 'One Skein Wonders' by Judith Durant. This simple-to-knit shell only uses one, count it, one skein of yarn. That's it! How much easier could it be? We used a Fiesta Rayon Boucle Starburst "Mochachino." Doesn't this color really pop? Take a look at the finished product in the picture below. Other colors available include: "Burnished Red", "Rusty", "Coral Reef" and "Wisteria."
We hope you take a look at this quick-knit project. Just go to our online yarn store and click on the first category "Knitting Kits." Pick your favorite color and you're ready to go!
We have been so excited to present our newly redesigned website and new online yarn store! We are perhaps even more excited at the amount of positive responses that have been flooding in. Thank you so much everybody, your support is greatly appreciated.
Any comments, concerns and/or suggestions that you may have about our new store and website are always welcome. We want to gradually tailor our webstore through customer suggestions to become easy and user-friendly as possible. Changes can only be made if you let us know what our strengths and weaknesses are, so don't be afraid to shoot us a message!
So please, browse through are yarns and enjoy the new offerings!
