From Blue Sky Fibers – Sweater is soft, family friendly and machine washable. A yarn that is versatile and the perfect blend of superwash wool and cotton.

What’s Happening!!

Hello to all my fiber enthusiast friends out there! It’s been a while since I’ve reached out… regardless of all the posts I’ve thought of sending! But, as I’ve learned and believe – It’s never too late!

So first off: A very deep and soulful thank you for all the support and joy you give ME! I truly love sharing yarns, patterns, and inspired ideas with you all! I wouldn’t be able to share my passion with the world, if it wasn’t for my customers. 🙂

I had plans to finish this beautiful ArtYarns hat and share with everyone for Holiday Wishes and possible last minute knitting or gift giving… but the end of 2021 had other plans for me and life was chaos. So, Valentine’s Day seemed like a good goal?! I did finish it – but failed to share! So, it’s really perfect timing now, as you can start planning for this year’s holiday season 😉

The shop is still full of favorites for this Wintery Season. And there is still plenty of time for quick chunky knits and cozy beanies and cowls. Need pattern inspiration? Send me an email or call; or check out the numerous patterns on Ravelry for these yarns.

YarnsTop Left to Right: Knit Collage/wanderlust, Malabrigo/Rios, Juniper Moon/Beatrix, Noro/Haunui & Viola, Knit Collage/Castaway & Dreamland, Blue Sky Fibers/Woolstok Light

I also decided that I needed to fully stock my little (very little) shop with Atenti bags! So, whether it’s for small project knitting, very LARGE project holding, or for traveling to your next destination (thinking: Spring Break!!?!). Check out these newest arrivals. And many more on the site.

There’s so many fun things in store (not just physically!) also for this upcoming year. KALs, Group Meetings, Store Events and the 4th Sierra Nevada Yarn Crawl in September! So let’s stay connected and keep our love of – knitting/crochetting/spinning/weaving/fibering of all sorts – going strong!!

Sending love and healing thoughts to all those affected by the attack on Ukraine.
