Welcome to the Little Skein shop! Here's what's happening over the next couple of weeks:

:::: Between November 23 and December 3, the shop will be open for orders but closed for shipping. Thanks for understanding, as I take some time away from the studio to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with family.

:::: My annual Black Friday shop update will be on Friday, November 27 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time. I am delighted to debut a new ornament kit, Clara's Nutcracker, with an original and exclusive design from Susan Claudino, a Christmas-inspired version of the Green Gables shawl kit with new yarn from Leading Men Fiber Arts, and holiday bag. Be sure to mark your calendar!

:::: Have you listened to my new shopcast? Listen to behind-the-scenes talks with some of the designers and makers involved with Little Skein kits, together with shop news and previews.

    A hat for a Charlotte-loving boy

    November 15, 2015

    Given my deep and abiding love of Charlotte's Web, I was thrilled when my son's 3rd grade teacher read the book to the children and when my son also proclaimed his love for Charlotte (and loud laughs at Templeton's sass, of course).

    After I knit my own sample of The Love of Spiders shawl, I wanted to make something that my son could wear, too. And, to be honest, I wanted an easy way to play with the enticing color palette Dani of Sunshine Yarns developed for the kit, without knitting nine different shawls!

    I am ridiculously excited about my new video for the Saluations shawl kit. It is, indeed, salutations -- a very fancy way of say hello to you and greetings! I hope you'll join me in the shop on Saturday morning for the kit's release. Festivities will begin at 9:00 a.m. Pacific time.

    The Salutations shawl kit -- coming to the shop on Saturday, November 14 -- features a new shawl pattern from designer Melanie Berg that was created for the Salutations kit and is inspired by the incomparable classic, Charlotte's Web.
