Featured Pattern & Yarn
I'm OOAK, You're OOAK?
The world loves an acronym (just think of all the acronyms you've learned the last year). Here's a new one for you: OOAK. Oh-oh-ay-kay, you say? This one stand for One Of A Kind, a term that some yarn dyers use to describe dye batches that might not have turned out as expected or were experiments or were the last skeins of a particular color.
That's all very interesting, you say, but why are you telling me this? Well, because the Madeline Tosh yarn van dropped by last week and we received a huge haul of OOAKs in Madeline Tosh Euro Sock, Impressions, Merino DK, Merino Holo, Silk Merino, Vintage, and Work Sock. These yarns vary from lush to squishy. In most colors, we have 2-3 skeins, which would make a fine project. For those where we have 1-2 skeins, we think you'll find a good selection for striping, fades, or brioche. Come check out our Mad Tosh haul before it's gone!
Wondering what to do with all of these fabulous yarns? May we suggest:
- Luna Fade (Crochet - Ravelry link) by Natalie @Detroit Knots ($6 in-store/Rav), a gorgeous fade shawl?
- Then there's Birds of a Feather (Knit - Ravelry link) by Andrea Mowry, a simple lace shawl that contrasts mohair with merino yarn (we think you can also use two merino yarns; $7 in-store/Rav).
- Finally, we love the Rooftop Blanket (Knit - non-Rav link) by Josh Bennett NYC ($6 Rav or on the designer's website). This blanket uses multiple strands of fingering to create a gorgeous fade look. The stitching pattern is eye catching, too.
Sometimes you just can't SEE what you're working on without a little help! Luckily, we've got some magnifying tools to help you out - including clip-ons for your glasses, special magnifying glasses , clamp and table-top magnifiers

The Tip Jar
Here's an easy way to store circular knitting needles or flexible tunisian crochet hooks: Just hang them on a peg or over a hook! Within a few weeks of hanging them up, the kinks and curls in the cord will straighten right out, with just a little bend where they go over the hook/peg. You can even hang several on the same hook. Maybe all the size 8s on one hook, all the 7s on another? Or organize them by length? Easy organization!
All regular classes are currently on hold until we can safely seat up to 6 students in the classroom. We'll let y'all know when we can offer them again. Until then, we're offering most of our class material in private lessons.
