Need inspiration?

Summer got you in the doldrums?

We just got some awesome new yarns in to help you out with that!

Look at these gorgeous shades of Jade Sapphire Sylph!
A breezy blend of cashmere and linen, perfect for shawls & shrugs.
They also sent us more of their 100% cashmere ombre kits in fall colors and new gradients. The mini kit makes a cozy cowl; the large makes a generous wrap--or simple striped pullover like this!

If you're looking for inspiration, look no farther!
We have notebooks of patterns, and a rack of finished sweaters, ponchos, and shawls.
 Pick a ready-made pattern in your choice of three sizes, or try one of our custom designs, made to your measurements and gauge, in your choice of our fabulous yarns--a one-of-a-kind creation!
