  • 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

    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!

These circular needles feature addi’s super smooth, super fast Turbo plating, with a twist – a subtle spiral texture extends the length of the needle barrel!

  • Long Square Click Sets are Back – May 02, 2022

    Long Square Click Sets Are In Stock! – May 02, 2022

    Long Square Click Sets are back!

    It’s been quite a long wait for our most popular Click Set, but we finally have a stack in stock and ready to ship! If you’ve been waiting to buy your set, now’s the time. They are already backordered again at the factory in Germany, so once this batch is gone, it may be a while before more are available.

    The Long Square Click Sets feature tips approximately 5.5″ long with a square profile. This unique shape offers knitters a more ergonomic experience that relieves pain and tension in the wrist and forearms while also offering a more consistent stitch size. It allows many folks to knit longer and more enjoyably than traditional, round needles.
    Each set features tips in sizes US 4 – 11, one cord each to create a total length of 24″, 32″, and 40″, one connector bar (helps either store stitches or create longer total  lengths), and one pair of addiGrips to make changing tips even easier. Everything tucks securely into a durable canvas carrying case with a zipper pocket on the back.

    You can find your set here. As always, our addi Click Sets are 20% off MSRP with no coupon code needed. All domestic orders qualify for free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do all international orders over $200US.

  • Rainy Day Sale – April 20, 2022

    In our corner of the map, we’ve been experiencing some seriously wild weather lately. With beautiful sunny days followed by snow, sleet, hail, and absolutely endless rain, our trajectory from Spring to toward Summer has taken some twists and turns. From minor flooding on our usual route to a major roof leak in our warehouse, we’ve been on our toes for weeks, struggling to find time for our favorite fiber activities.

    Luckily, there’s an end in sight, at least for the busy times; the chilly rain looks like it’ll stay for a bit longer. So while we look forward to some rainy day knitting this week, we want to share the enthusiasm with you! Please enjoy this sale on all of our in-stock yarns! Grab a skein or two for your next rainy day crafty session, or for whatever you’re celebrating right now.
