Summer Hours & Cascade 220 Superwash

I have filled the Cascade 220 SW shelves with fresh bright colors plus our basic white, gray, black and navy. Plenty of each color for a sweater or baby blanket!

Starting May 1 the shop will be closed on Sunday and closing at 4 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I rarely have customers in that last hour especially in the summer, so please call if you plan to stop in from 4-5 and I may be able to stay.

A Summer Shawl

Summer Flies is a simple lace pattern on a worsted weight yarn that works up in a few days. Two skeins of Summer Silk by Berroco Yarns make this a super soft light layer for summer that looks great over a casual sundress but would also be appropriate for a wedding or other formal occasion!

Two skeins of Berroco Summer Silk, Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton, or Cascade Hampton (a cotton and linen blend) would all work for this great summer knit.

New Spring Yarn

Melilla by Cascade has arrived at the shop. This soft, gorgeous yarn is a worsted weight , perfect for quick to knit shawls or sweaters. I have 7 colors which are causing a lot of excitement from the knitters at the shop this morning.
Melilla is 220 yards, worsted weight and $12.95 a skein.
