Never Not Knitting Trunk Show!

The Never Not Knitting trunk show has arrived and will be here until March 25!

For those who don't know, a trunk show is a selection of knitted samples from yarn companies or designers that the shop borrows for a short time to allow its customers to see what patterns or yarns will look like when the are knit up. In this case, the trunk show are samples of the Never Not Knitting patterns by Alana Dakos that I sell in the shop.

I can't say enough about these patterns - not only are they great looking knitted items, but the patterns are VERY well written, easy to follow (charts also have written instructions!) and as a bonus have great graphics. I have made the Shawl Collared Cowl (and taught 3 very popular classes for it), the Autumn Vines Hat (also a class at the shop), the Cedar Leaf Shawlette (upcoming class in April) and I'm currently working on the Cloudy Day hat (lace and bobbles!) for another class in May. There you have it - the proof that I love the patterns! And there are many more to try -- especially some very adorable baby/kids patterns.

Here is a picture of the beautiful display Jana set up once the samples arrived:

As a special for the trunk show, if you purchase a pattern and the yarn to make it with, you will get 10% off the yarn! This special lasts through March 25. (and if you've purchased on of her patterns recently and want to come back to buy the yarn, let us know what the yarn is for, and we will STILL give you 10% off the yarn!). Sorry, this doesn't apply to yarn already on sale.

So stop in , check it out, and plan some spring/summer knitting!
