Aztec Scarf

By now you have probably heard of Spud and Chloe, the latest line of yarns from Blue Sky Alpacas. We carry the full color range of Sweater, a light worsted machine washable wool and cotton blend, and Fine, a blend of washable wool, silk and nylon blend. Kathy recently crocheted the Aztec Scarf for a shop sample in Sweater. The colors are really wonderful and the yarn feels great.

Cricket looms from Schacht have arrived at the Fiber Gallery. We couldn’t wait to get one warped and start weaving. Weaving on a Cricket is simple to do and fast to set up. There are some great instructional articles on the Schacht site and even a Cricket group on Ravelry. Try it out the next time you stop by the shop.
