Fun with Beads!

In an earlier post, we shared a picture of the dyed silk cocoons and hand painted cording we are stocking for your crafting and creative fiber arts needs. Our clever Eve has been creating jewelry using the cocoons and cording, and beads from our friends at Spring Beads in Old Town Spring.
What a unique gift for someone on your Christmas list!

It must be time to start getting the needles and hooks moving for the holidays...the holiday knitting and crochet magazines have been arriving at the shop!

The afghan, shawl and scarf kits from HPKY (Hand Painted Knitting Yarns) have arrived. Be sure to take a look at the Operetta Shawl kit which alternates rows of lace weight kid mohair with a silk and merino bulky weight yarn for a beautiful textural effect, as well as the Yarn Ribbon scarf which uses six different yarns and ribbon to create a  stunning scarf.

Jade Sapphire's new cashmere yarn, Brigadoon, is now in stock at the shop. This worsted weight, 100% cashmere yarn comes from Scotland and will make a luxurious gift for someone special! Pictured are patterns for a cowl and for fingerless mitts using the oh, so soft and lovely Brigadoon yarn.

We are working on our newsletter and calendar for October through January. Look for it to be posted here and on our website the last week of September.
