Maryland Sheep & Wool is this weekend…

 

This weekend is the annual Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.  If you weren’t lucky enough to get a seat on our bus trip on Saturday- consider spending the day with us at The Knitter’s Edge.  We will make you feel like you are at a very special Yarn Festival- something we try to do every day of every week!  

 

Mother’s Day Bowls

Not sure what to get Mom for her special day?  How about a beautiful locally made ceramic yarn bowl complete with a 100g hank of Fantasy Naturale Cotton and a FREE pattern for our  Easy Checkered cloth. All tied together in a soft white organza bag.  Just add needles.
