Rose City Yarn Crawl

Things are going to look a little different this year, but we are excited to welcome yarn-lovers into our shop for the 2021 Rose City Yarn Crawl. The crawl will take place March 4-14 to give folks more time and space to spread out and keep all of us safe. Take a look at the RCYC page for more details.

If you would like a 2021 RCYC bag, please pre-order yours now. You can choose to pick your up at the local Portland yarn shop of your choice, or you can have it mailed to you in March. We will have a very limited supply available in the shop during the crawl, so the pre-order is your best bet if you love collecting these bags. We can't wait to see you all!

Tuft Soaps and Lotions

Need to wash your woolies? We have the Tuft wool soaps back in the shop! We also have the lanolin-rich hand and body balm in case your skin could use a little love, too.

Schoppel Zauber Perlen

Take a look at this fun Slip Sliden' Cowl designed with the Schoppel Zauber Perlen we have in the shop. The pattern uses up all the yarn in this squishy, textured fabric. The black and white is pretty, but a nice bright one might be just right for our rainy winter.

One Sock Trunk Show


Loving these sweet socks from The Fibre Co's One Sock book. We have the trunk show in the shop for you to check out!

Ready Set Raglan


I have been coveting this book on the internet since I learned of its existence. Ready Set Raglan provides a blueprint to create your own custom sweater. You can choose necklines, textures, colorblocking, and fancy raglan details. This is such a great book if you want a place to begin designing your own sweaters. Take a look at the Ravelry page for more details on the patterns.

Cute Beanie!



Need a nice beanie? One skein of our Galler Prime Alpaca is going to get you THREE of these cute hats. THREE!

New Books!


These new books have us all inspired and ready to cast on! The new Laine (Rav link), 52 Weeks of Socks (Rav link), and Fair Isle Weekend (Rav link) would be great gifts for a knitter you love. Or for yourself. You deserve it. Especially this year.
