Just a reminder for those who aren't on Ravelry, the Aran Knitting KAL starts this coming Monday, November 1st. Folks are choosing a design they like from the book, buying the yarn at the shop (we are offering a 10% discount for the KAL supplies), and we will be converting the patterns to be knit in one piece from the top down. Some of the advantages to knitting a sweater this way are being able to try the sweater on as you work to get the fit correct, no seams to sew up after the knitting is done, and the excitement of watching the sweater take shape as you work. Come join the fun and friendship as we work on our projects at our Knit Night on Thursdays . Helen Burros is leading the KAL and can be contacted on as Bluedragon on or

Shibui Yarns!

We just received some beautiful Shibui Sock yarns and Shibui's baby pattern book. Shibui is a local Portland yarn company. Very cute!

This single Shibui pattern is adorable!
