This was the official pattern for Shetland Wool Week 2015, an event held every year in Shetland to celebrate Shetland wool and it’s associated crafts.
It is knitted in Shetland Aran weight yarn at a fairly tight gauge making a warm and cosy hat, good for keeping your ears warm in the Shetland wind!Read More
This annual event begins Thursday, September 15th and runs through Sunday, September 18th. Visit as many of the sixteen terrific yarn shops in the Greater Boston area over the four days of "The Crawl" for fun, prizes and special prices on yarns for "Crawlers".Read More
I love soft, squishy yarns in beautiful colors. If you do also then you might want to give Mirasol's Llama Una a try. We knit a free pattern called the "Easy Ombre Slouch Hat" in blue and grey and the result may actually convince me to wear a hat this year - and that's saying something!Read More
The Irish Hiking Scarf by Hello Yarn
The Irish Hiking Scarf by Hello Yarn is this weeks selection. This is one of my all time favorite scarves for men (and women too!). A very simple to follow 8 row cable pattern results in an impressive looking scarf. The pattern can be found on Ravelry.com. Knit in the beautiful Queensland Kathmandu Aran yarn - yes folks, it's back in 100 gram hanks! I used about one and three quarter skeins for this sample. If the tweedy look is not your thing there are lots of other yarn options that would work well. Juniper Moon Farms "Moonshine", Berroco's "Ultra Alpaca", Debbie Bliss' "Cashmerino Aran", and Cascade 220 among others.
This is the Pescovegetarian Mitten by Veera Villapuu* knit in Classic Elite Yarns "Blackthorn". It's a classic mitten with a modern twist. We love it in Blackthorn but a number of other chunky weight yarns would work well too.Read More
The Swirling Cowl by Signe Marie Richter
This cowl is knit with just over 100 yards of a super bulky weight yarn. We used one skein of Mirasol's Yaya ($19.95), a gorgeous and soft Superwash Merino from Peru that comes in some great colors. Knit on size 17 needles this cowl is a fast and easy project for even a beginner.Read More
What should I knit for holiday gifts (or for myself)?
Using the Churchmouse pattern* as a guideline, we reduced the size of the scarf so that you can make two of them with one skein of Shibui Silk Cloud ($23.25)and one spool of Anny Blatt Victoria ribbon ($17.50).Read More
It's hard to believe but we* actually did it! We moved out of our old location and into the new one in just two (very long, very exhausting) days. We are officially open for business as of 10:00am today, December 1, 2015.
The shop isn't quite as put together as we'd like but we made tremendous progress. The utilities are on, the parking lot has spaces available and the first fifty (50) customers who make a purchase will receive a gift from Yarns in the Square.
Once again it's:
Yarns in the Square
400 Lincoln St., shop #2 (which faces Rte. 3A and Trader Joe's)
Hingham, MA 02043
The easiest way to get here is to turn onto William Terry Drive (either from Beale St. or Rte. 3A) and go to the Rockland Trust. Turn to the right and then follow along the side of the building. Our new sign is not up yet but if you see the "Learn Kids Learn" sign you've made it. Look for the sheep in the windows!
Hope to see you soon,
* The "we" included my parents, two sisters, neice, nephew, uncle, aunt, two cousins, a bunch of family friends, knitting friends and our Lois, Joan and Marianne. Everyone worked really hard and many of us are sore today. I did learn one important thing - if we ever move again I need to hire movers!
