We've had a great response to our SHAWLS mini-session classes led by Sue Yarborough! The first session will focus on the techniques used in TWO ROADS. During this class a swatch will be knit in which all the elements of the shawl will be completed. Special emphasis will be placed on cables including various ways to make cables, cabling without a cable needle, interpreting cable charts and reading your knitting. Not a shawl knitter? We will also focus on ways to adapt this...Continue reading >

Like many of you, my favorite wardrobe staples are pieces that are flexible. Multi-season layering pieces are best and if they can be worn multiple ways - even better! Reagan by Isabell Kraemer absolutely fits the bill. Knit from the top down, this unstructured cardigan combines easy to knit stockinette with an addictive Harebell lace pattern. You can wear it with the stockinette section at the top or the lace at the top - your choice! We've knit ours using WalkCollection Cozy...Continue reading >

Those of you who love The Uncommon Thread yarns know that Ce gives a nod to speckles in two of her colorways Confetti and Turbillion. She's added a third barely-there speckle to her lineup; Spektor. The base color for Spektor is on the light side of medium grey with gold, red, blue, pink, (did I see a bit of green?). I didn't need to see the colorway to know we'd love it at Yarn Culture so Spektor is available in almost every base including Uncommon...Continue reading >

New this week is FERN by Shibui Knits. We don't carry many traditional "summer weight" yarns so when we do, you can bet we think it's worth it.

We've brought in all 10 of the beautiful spring/summer neutral colors. The palette is wearable and will be able to transition into Fall with no problem. One skein weighs in at 50 g...Continue reading >
