Where Will Your Knitting Take You?

If you were in the shop this past Saturday, or belong to Yarn Cravin's Sock Club, there's no doubt that you are familiar with Destination Yarns. Jeanne Stevenson has dyed yarn for our Sock Club twice, and this past weekend, she brought ALL of her beautiful inventory for a Trunk Show at Yarn Cravin'.

If you missed the trunk show, don't fret. Click on the "Destination Yarns" link at the top of this post, and you can purchase directly from Jeanne's Etsy shop. And maybe, just maybe, we'll have Jeanne's yarns in the shop sometime soon!

I personally fell in love with a baby hat Jeanne brought with her. The pattern is
Leatherhead Hat and is available for purchase on Ravelry. The hat is sized from infant through adult, so you'll get a lot of use from just one purchase!

Now, what else is new at Yarn Cravin'?

Sparkly sock yarns!


Little sheep bags from Lantern Moon


Namaste's latest knitting bags - purse sized!


Herdy Sheep Mugs!


There are also key rings and coasters that match. Mugs are also available in green, blue, pink and grey.

Cascade Heritage Silk sock yarn is also in stock.


Just a reminder that Book Club meets the last Thursday of the month. The newest discussion book is Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders. Pick up your copy at the shop!

So many goodies, so little time! I promise that the snow will melt and spring will come, so stop in and see what's new. We'll be hanging out on the porch in no time!
