    Knitter's Frolic Recap...

    It was a special treat to have both Emily of "Viola" and Rhichard of "The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze" join us in the booth at this year's Frolic! They really enjoyed talking to everyone and being there to meet yarn fans and enthusiasts in person! The energy was high and the day was a busy one.

    As always we had lots of fun at this year's Knitters Frolic! The booth was hoppin' as usual and we loved the air of fibery goodness and enthusiasm!

    And of course... A REALLY big shout and thank you to the organizers of the TKG Knitter's Frolic once again! So very many hours of volunteering and coordination go into making this event such a rousing success. Thanks again!


    Spring is the perfect time to stitch up a T-Shirt for the fast approaching Tee weather! We have a lovely array of spring yarns that will make for gorgeous wearable summer garments.
