  Hey, hey, hey! It’s Mannequin Monday! And today’s pick is also a NEW PATTERN…Moon Ring Set! Photo credit: Margotchien.   This set pairs some of our favorite things – hats with scarves, and lace with chunkier weight yarn.

ALL ABOUT THAT BASE – The Yaks

All About The YAKS! We’re back with our second INSTAGRAM LIVE – Spotlight On Bases! This time we’re talking about YAK! Yak is warm, soft and light as cashmere. However, it has more loft and holds body more like wool.  We can’t wait to talk all things Yak with you, including answering questions in real time!  Plus, how’s this for exciting?!  In conjunction with this Spotlight video, we are delighted to offer a […]

The Cormo Update!

  Plucky Cormo The beauty of Fall is upon us along with its distinct temperament. What a great contrast it seems to be — the unwelcoming, cold air outside with the indoor coziness that beckons us to our favorite comfy chair and the warmth of a crackling fireplace. This time of year is the perfect […]

Coziness

  November has a character all its own. The leaves falling at a rapid clip and the unmistakably earthy scent that is late autumn. The nostalgia that it brings, I can’t quite put into words. It’s easy to enjoy the smell of a burning fire and watching children (or those child at heart) rake up […]

Skies of November & Barely Birch Update

  I find few things comparable to the beauty of a Michigan Fall and those broody skies we see this time of year. This welcomed time is full of ample excuses (the weather from those broody skies for example!) for having a warm cup of something in hand at all times while cozying up to the fire with knitting that […]
