Welcome Spring? Almost… it is just a few days away and I hear next week it might warm up! If you’re like me, the Spring can’t come soon enough. The “shop” can’t wait either. As you can imagine business was weird the last few months. The snow, the T and the parking issues created an interesting dynamic for us and we are happy to be past it. Our sales were low because of the weather factor and I want to clear out and move past this Winter now. Please help… Starting tomorrow, Thursday, March 19 through Sunday, March 22 we are having an awesome “Welcome Spring” Clearance Sale. This will include Cascade, Bliss, some Indie yarns, books, patterns and MORE all ON SALE. We’ll post the full, exact list on Facebook tomorrow. GO like our page so you’ll be in the loop.Annissa Entangled Leaves

In time for the annual South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast, I finished my Entangled Leaves sweater. It was fun to make… top down, one piece in Tosh Vintage color Jade. Check out my Ravelry project page for more details or to make your own!

Make sure you check out what we have brewing for workshops this week and ahead. All great – all have open seats for YOU! Call to reserve your place.

If you really want to treat yourself (you do deserve it!) to a fun and relaxing knitting vacation, join Shelley Leahy and Sarah Wolf (teacher at Stitch House) on the 2015 Sheep Ahoy Knitters Cruise as we sail from Boston to Bermuda, July 17-26th. Sarah will be our on-board knitting instructor. Check here for more details.

And, as usual, join us for Friday night knitting at the shop anytime after 6pm.

Thanks!
Annissa
