Opium and Wire?

Here we go knitters, this is spring!
Introducing OPIUM from King Cole Yarns. A thick and thin cotton blend that is made for enjoying  summer fashion knits. This gorgeous tank is on display at the store and only takes 2 balls of yarn. And due to the large open weave of the fabric that it creates, it takes next to no time to knit up .


I'm so glad to announce that we've been able to get in a wonderful supply of knitting wire from Artistic Wire. We will obviously be featuring classes in the future to introduce you to the possibilities, but for right now there's much to be found on line that can help you design and make beautiful jewelry with the simplest of tools and techniques.
