Welcome to the new KnitKnacks Entwined online store!
We are very excited to open online. We've been welcoming people to our bricks-and-mortar shop for a little over a year, and decided to expand our horizons.
Our online store is still but we are open for business, and you can now register for all of our In-Store Classes online.
We are adding new products to the store and online every day. We've recently added some wonderful new Merino 5 and Sausalito colors from Crystal Palace Yarns. Check them out under the "Baaaa! Wool and Wool Blends" category.
Our most recent additions include some luscious Noro "Silk Garden." Silk Garden has the fabulous colors Noro is famous or, in a luxurious blend of 45% silk, 45% Mohair, and 10% wool. Look in the "Exotic Fibers" collection.
Perhaps not so "rich" but wonderfully soft is the Juniper Moon Farm Zooey. It's in "Cotton and Cotton Blends." Zooey is a fine (#2) 60% cotton, 40% linen blend. If you've ever been lucky enough to have a cotton/linen shirt, you know it gets softer and softer with use. There's a Zooey vest pattern in the current Noro magazine, but my favorite use for fine weight cotton linen is the Spa Day Face Cloth, which is fast and easy to make, and comes out pretty enough to make as a gift. This pattern calls for DK weight and #6 needles. This "palindrome pattern" works beautifully with finer yarns and #5 or smaller needles. One hint: DON'T try to make the pattern come out even at the end of the row. It won't.
Thanks for visiting. Next Saturday we shut the shop down for a field trip to A Wool Gathering in Yellow Springs. We'll be sure to post pictures. Hope to see you there!
