What a treat it was to have Sabrina Gschwandtner in the store. It was fascinating to learn about the process involved in making her book KnitKnit: Profiles and Projects from Knitting’s New Wave.

Sabrina deftly captures and explores this tension. If you haven’t already picked up a copy, do.

Right after Thanksgiving, Dave and Terri Gentszch of Ozark Handspun came for a visit. They brought a bushel of new colors and some fabulous samples. Allison is wearing a shawl that you have to see to believe. Come down to the store to see all the beautiful, mohairy bounty!
