Beaded Cowl

Adding beads with a crochet hook is as easy as 1-2-3!
Using just one hank of Illimani Sabri fingering weight and 3 pkg of beads from Owl Be Beading, we have knit up this cowl. Great pattern with great charts!
Illimani Sabri comes in several colors. All soft blends of natural cotton and baby alpaca.
Another Beaded Cowl is coming next week. Watch for it! Knit in
Happy Feet with beautiful beads.
The Beaded Cowl can really be knit any length and any width; just need to make sure you have enough fingering weight yarn and beads.
Join in on Saturday mornings- Nov 9 and 16 to knit up a cowl with JoAnne. Includes a field trip to
Owl Be Beading– our favorite local bead shop.

New Products

We Welcome Soulmate Socks

We are very excited to announce our new relationship with Soulmate Socks. Mismatched socks knit in recycled cotton. So soft and colorful.
“Because life is too short for Matched socks!”
They are bold and a little crazy, making happy mismatches and bringing “solmates” into the world.
Adult socks- Mostly mismatched, but not all, as you can see.
The Soulmates Baby socks are what drew us toward this company in the first place. Sold in sets of 5 socks- each one different. Wear them in so many combos. Thea loves these socks so much!
Sizes are 0-6m, 6-12m, and 12-24m.
Large Hot Pads and Coasters made from felted balls of wool. So colorful and useful too. These will make great holiday gifts.
Once again, Atenti amazes us with their use of fabrics and color.
This awesome bag is called
Bonnie Diablo!
