After much thought, I've decided that I will be closing the shop for good instead of just through the month of July.  I've enjoyed these past two years, but concluded that it was time for me to move on to new adventures.  Well, maybe no adventures at all for the short term, just some rest!
Thank you all for your patronage, friendship and support.  Having the shop was truly an extraordinary experience and I'm grateful to have had such wonderful customers.  I will miss seeing you all, but there's been some talk of starting up a local knitting/crochet group again.  I will post something on the shop website and facebook pages once it's finalized.
Apologies for the lack of notice and especially to those of you that I have seen the last few days.  I did not mean to be evasive, but I had not yet made my final decision, so I could not say anything.

There will be no more regular shop hours, but I will be honoring outstanding gift certificates.  I have a log of who purchased them and for whom, so I will be reaching out directly to those with outstanding balances.  If you have a gift certificate, please email me and we can work something out.
Thanks again for everything.

Free Workshop - Cables

posted Jun 5, 2012, 6:30 PM by Helen Brennan

Join us for a free workshop -- Demystifing Cables -- on Saturday, June 9th from 1pm - 3pm.

Lelah will teach you the basics of knitting cables, including several techniques for cable patterns, reading cable charts and for the really adventurous...cabling without a cable needle! We will have a few swatches on hand for you to practice with and can get you started on a simple project to use your new skills! 

The workshop itself is free (materials are extra) and is open to anyone who knows how to knit, purl, cast on and bind off. 
Bring size 8 straight needles if you have them!
