We hope you had a wonderful summer and are enjoying the last few weeks before fall gets here.  It's time to start thinking about knitting and all the wonderful things that you can create for you and your family and friends. Come by the shop and see some of the new and wonderful things that have started to arrive. One of our new magazines is The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits. If you are a Harry Potter fan or have one in your family you need to see this magazine! It has a wonderful updated version of the Harry Potter scarves.

The cowl is worked in Kenzie by Hokoo. Kenzie is is a tweed from New Zealand that is new to us and has been well received so far.  If you have questions give us a call (215) 361-9899 or visit the Skacel website for more information.
Fair Isle Style

New Book Review

Fair Isle Style : 20 Fresh Designs for a Classic Technique
by Mary Jane Mucklestone
If you have always been fascinated by fair isle but afraid to try it, this book will take that fear away. It has lovely updated and wearable designs. Some of the projects are small such as the baby booties and hats, and some are more traditional fair isle such as cardigans, skirts and dresses. They are designed in the traditional knitting style working in the round and using steeks with beautiful color charts to go with each pattern. You don't have to be afraid of not knowing fair isle technique because in the back of the book there is a wonderful tutorial and hints are given through out the book.
