Preemie Octopus Pattern
A FREE pattern

We've had lots of requests for this pattern ever since the story on Yarnivore and our FABULOUS charity knitters and crocheters was published in the Express-News. We have it FREE here in the shop for anyone who wants it, but if you can't get to the shop or if you just want to cast on right now, you can download it from the link on this page!

Want a crochet version? Here's one to try!

Featured Yarn and Pattern
Clean Cotton Big is a recycled eco-fiber blend. This thick and fun yarn is suitable for home decor, accessories, and more! What to make with it? We love these:
Check out the Chevron Waves Bath Mat (knit, $6.50) or the Shoreline Rug (crochet, free pattern)! Either one would look great adorning your bathroom, laundry room, front door, or anywhere else you want a pretty mat...

The Tip Jar

Highlighter tape is GREAT for keeping your place on patterns, but it does have one downside - it picks up just enough ink or pencil off your paper to make it cloudy. To keep it nice and clear, put the page in a page protector first.

On commercially printed books/magazines with shiny paper, the highlighter tape doesn't pick up anything.

Weaving - Saori weaving with Kathy Utts!

Craft: Weaving
Teacher: Guest Teacher Kathy Utts!

No experience needed! Join us for this very fun (!) class in Saori weaving. This form of weaving originated in Japan and seeks to make weaving accessible to all and to tap into spontaneous creativity. Both beginners and advanced students enjoy learning about the Saori philosophy and the myriad of techniques that add texture and artistic interest.

Guest teacher Kathy Utts is a Saori trained weaver - she'll provide pre-warped looms, a wide variety of yarn and fiber, ribbon and sheep locks. Students will leave with a finished piece, suitable for wall art or decor. Depending on student experience and the amount of embellishments, students' work will range from about 18" to 30".
