Greenwood Waltz

Greenwood Waltz

Our latest shop pattern is a new spin on an older pattern. Originally created for Kureyon Sock (now discontinued) this simple, top-down, triangular shawl has an easy-to-learn, easy-to-knit pattern.

Take Tea With Alice

Our latest knitalong starts Sunday with a tea party! It’s all in honor of the Alice In Wonderland theme of our mystery project, a color-blocked neckpiece.

You can also check out our recommended yarn, a five-color pack of Cheshire Cat yarn. We have several color schemes...

It’s behind the building, with the entrance on 83rd Street. Of course, there’s plenty of street parking, too, so you never have to worry about where to put your car when you visit.
