Thank you so much to everyone who came by my booth at DFW Fiberfest!
I absolutely loved meeting new customers and re-visiting with return customers. I was completely overwhelmed by your compliments and positive words and cannot tell you just how much you made my heart soar!!
It will take me about a week to get my store in Waxahachie back in shape, so thanks for your patience if you happen by.
As always, knit night is every Thursday from 5-8pm. Hope to see some new folks wandering in!

Knitted Skirt Class

TakeTwoSkirtThree spots left!! Contact me here for more info!!

Class Description:

The Take-Two Skirt, by Ann Budd, is worked in a fingering weight wool yarn. It creates a firm but lightweight fabric. It is designed to have 0-1” negative ease around the waist and hips for a slimming fit. Four darts shape the hip area; then purl stitches are added between “pleats” to provide flare for the lower edge. Slipped stitches make the “pleats” look more elongated. Twisted stitches are worked along each edge of the pleat sections for crisp pleat definition.

Teacher:
Sherry Smith – Sherry has studied with over 150 national teachers such as Janine Bajus, Debbie Bliss, Amy Detjen, Jean Frost, Sarah Hatton, Sasha Kagan, Martin Storey and Steven West.

Ewe ‘Swirl’

Mini “Swirl” sets are the bomb!! This past weekend at the DFW Yarn Crawl 2018, we introduced our new “Swirl”s which are 5 mini skeins of fabulous colors pre-selected for the perfect set. It was so fun to watch which color sets people responded to and “loved at first sight”. The response was awesome and over 50 Swirls jumped into your bags to go home with you! Thank you so much to everyone who came!!
