  • Memorial Weekend Sale – May 26, 2023

    Memorial Weekend Sale – May 26, 2023

    As we head into the Memorial Day weekend here in the US, I’ll be taking a long weekend to spend time with my family as we learn about some of the ways brave folks of the past have contributed to our lives today. I’ve also set aside some time to enjoy some outdoor knitting in the sunshine with a hot cup of tea!

    Over the weekend, please enjoy 15% OFF all current Fleece Artist and Hand Maiden yarns (excludes Clearance Corner yarns). Use code MEM2023 at checkout through the end of the day Monday, May 29, to apply the discount.

    If you need some needles or hooks to go with your new yarn, check out our collection of addi tools and accessories, always 20% off (no coupon code needed).

    All domestic orders receive free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do international orders over $200US.

  • What’s New – Hand Maiden Flyss May 18, 2023

    What’s New – Hand Maiden Flyss May 18, 2023

    Our weather went from very cold and wet to very hot and sunny with no warning whatsoever! I didn’t even have time to plan out a new knitting project. Luckily, I recently received some Hand Maiden Flyss, an absolutely beautiful fingering weight blend of 65% silk and 35% linen. It’s just perfect for warm-weather garments and accessories, and wont make you sweat while you work with it in the summer months.

    The Flyss already starts off soft, but as is true with all linen, it becomes even softer and more supple as you work, wash, and wear it. Both the linen and silk are strong and durable, so your projects will last through years of enjoyment. And even as the outside temperatures rise, your tops and scarves will keep you cool and comfortable.

    If you need needles or hooks to go along with your yarn, I carry the entire collection of addi products at 20% off.

    And as always, all domestic orders qualify for free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do all international orders over $200US.

  • What’s New – September 28, 2022

    We’re finally (almost) done with our big warehouse move! It’s been a topsy-turvy summer with lots ups and downs. In a strange turn of events, when we were almost done loading up and moving out of our old warehouse, our plans were completely shaken up, and ultimately, we ended up moving everything back into our original warehouse, though in a different configuration of space.

    So it looks like our old home will be our new home once again! We’ve always loved our warehouse space, and spending more time there is just fine with us. We still have some rearranging, unpacking, and heavy lifting to do, so we’re not quite back at full capacity yet, but we expect the dust to settle in the next week or two.

    In other news, we’ve just received our first shipment of the brand new Ewenicorn Turbo circular needles from addi! We’ll be processing the new inventory and sending out pre-orders for the remainder of this week, so if you’ve already ordered yours, they’ll be coming to you ASAP.

    The Ewenicorns are addi’s latest circular needle offering, and they’re adorable! They feature a unique spiral texture extending the length of the needle and a bright pink, flexible nylon cord. They also have addi’s rounded Turbo tip and their ultra smooth, ultra fast Turbo plated finish. These circulars also boast addi’s SOS slits – small slits in the cord near the needles that allow you to insert a lifeline into your work as you knit.

    You can find the Ewenicorn collection here.

  • We’re Moving! – August 01, 2022

    We’re Moving! – August 01, 2022

    We’re moving! Over the next month, we’ll be packing up our warehouse and moving to a new location. It’s a bit farther off the beaten path, but we’re very excited for the new beginning.

    During our move, we will only be shipping on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. This will enable us to get inventory, supplies, infrastructure, and other odds and ends moved and set up without interrupting operations altogether. We’ll resume daily shipping as soon as we’re fully moved into the new space, or the beginning of September, whichever comes first.

    As a “Thank You” for your patience and understanding during the moving process, we’re offering 10% off all yarns during the month of August. Use code “MOVING2022” at checkout to apply the 10% discount on all Fleece Artist, Hand Maiden, and even Clearance Corner yarns.

  • Important: Shipping Changes June 23-27, 2022

    Important: Shipping Changes June 23-27, 2022

    This week, we’re gearing up for our first in-person fiber festival since the summer of 2019! We’re so excited to once again attend the Black Sheep Gathering this weekend. This fiber festival has been running since 1974, and it’s one of our favorite events of the whole year.

    We’ll be setting up our booth on Thursday, June 23, and participating in the marketplace Friday through Sunday, June 24-26. We’ll bring everything back to our shop and unload on Monday, June 27. Due to the shifting around of our inventory, we will be unable to ship out orders. All orders placed between June 23 and June 27, 2022 will go out Tuesday, June 28, 2022. After that, all shipping times will return to normal.

    If you’re in the Albany, Oregon area, please stop by for a visit! We’ll be offering 25% OFF all addi products, as well as show special discounts on yarns. Plus, we’ll have a few special items debuting at the festival. We’ll be adding them to the website once we get back next week.

    And be on the lookout for our next sale, which will kick off next week once the dust settles from the fiber festival excitement!

  • Toolbox Tuesday – addi Rocket Circulars – June 14, 2022

    Toolbox Tuesday – addi Rocket Circulars

    The addi Rocket Circulars are easily our most popular fixed circular knitting needles. They feature addi’s famous Turbo plating, which lends an ultra smooth finish to the needles, allowing for fast knitting. They are also equipped with addi’s sharp Lace point, which is ideal for complex stitches and lace work. And finally, addi’s flexible snag-free cable completes the enjoyable knitting experience.

    They are available in sizes US 000/1.5mm through US 13/9mm, and in lengths from 16″/40cm through 150cm. The 16″ and 20″ lengths offer a shorter ~3.5″ needle tip while all other lengths offer a standard ~5″ needle tip. And like all addi knitting needles, the Rocket Circulars carry a lifetime warranty to be free from manufacturing defects. Should you find any flaws in your needles, let us know for a quick, free replacement.

    As always, all domestic orders qualify for free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do international orders over $200US.
