Blocking Heads

Knitter's Blocks

Blocking is a snap with Knitter’s Blocks! The interlocking blocks allow for great flexibility to accommodate your knitting needs: long and skinny for a scarf or wider for sweater pieces. They come with a pressing cloth, t-pins and instructions, in short everything you need to make finishing your project a pleasure.

Japanese Knitting Know How

New Japanese Pattern Magazines

We have many Japanese knitting magazines to thumb through for knitting inspiration! Also on offer are three Chart Symbols Discs made from recycled CDs by our very own Judy Sakaguchi. These discs are a handy tool for deciphering the symbols in the pattern charts. They’ve flown off the shelves, but you can always call to order if you’re interested in owning one. However, if you want the discs and the wealth of knowledge that Judy brings, then you should definitely sign up for her Japanese Knitting Pattern Basics class. The next session is on Sunday, May 31st from 4:00-6:00 pm. Check out the class schedule for more details.

MacGyver Knitting

Knit Kit

This is exactly the sort of tool that you would want in a tight spot. The Knit Kit is a veritable Swiss Army Knife for knitters – the kit includes scissors, stitch marker, thread cutter, point protectors, row counter, and a removable crochet hook. All that and it’s TSA approved. Airplane knitting just got a whole lot easier!

Carry in Style


If ever there was a bag that went more perfectly with a hand knit sweater, this wool felt and leather bag from Gräf & Lantz and Tempest were meant to be. The colors and construction make it a modern classic. Whether you need a bag for yarn purchases or to carry knitting projects, we have an amazing array of choices.


This casual laminated cotton tote from Danica Designs with its whimsical print just feels like spring. It makes the perfect carry-all!


Maybe you have a yen for a sleek little number like the Fiona Day Tote from Offhand Designs, available in a variety of beautiful patterns. But if you need to haul that afghan to your knitting group, then the Pocket Tote from Timeless Totes is the bag for you. There really is nothing like a brand new (knitting) bag!
