US 7-8 needle.

We have two new models for you

This gorgeous sweater uses
Malabrigo Twist yarn.
We also have lots of colors in
the Twist. A must see!


Anzel Pullover

This sweater uses Encore Mego and
a size 15 needle. This is a child's
sweater and hangs low. So cute!

If you make socks, you will love our next item:

This is called
The Sock Ruler

This is an innovative measuring tool for
sock knitters that allows the sock to
lay flat and ensure accurate
measurements. No more messing
around with tape measures!

Sizes: Adult, child and infant and
one with all sizes.


We added another rack of greeting cards!  These are so popular.
Stop in and see these for yourself! We all love them.
