February is now Fibruary!

Our savvy customers must have known something! How else can you explain the fact they voted for Fibre Company Yarns for this month’s Yarn of the Month? They must have known that this is the same month that The Fibre Co.’s Kate and Courtney would release their fabulous new book, Vintage Modern Knits! What a perfect combination!

Stop in today and pick up gorgeous, soft, luxurious yarns from the Fibre Company and check out the 20 beautiful patterns in their new book.

Did we mention our Yarn of the Month is 15% off?

Just curious, what will be March’s Yarn of the Month? Stop back and vote soon!

Vintage Modern Knits

Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osbourne, owners of the beautiful Fibre Company Yarns, came to visit us in November and told us they were working on a book of new patterns. Were they ever!

We are thrilled to have copies of the book, Vintage Modern Knits, in stock and are inspired to cast on. Deciding on what to make, however, is not easy as there are many patterns that peak our interests. Where to start? The new Bramble Beret or, possibly, the beautiful and intricate Adelaide Yoke Pullover? There are twenty exquisite patterns to choose from.

Stop in Patricia's Yarns and get your copy today.

P.S. Another visit by our favorite Fibre Co. designers is in the works - so stay tuned for details.

Mia's Polly Pullover

One of our fave customer's, Mia, is knitting for spring despite the winter cold. She has picked up this great new pattern from Spud and Chloe. This quick knit, done in Spud and Chloe's Bulky Outer Yarn, will be perfect for those "Goldilocks Days" in March - not too hot, not too cold. Swing by and pick up the materials to make one for yourself - or someone you love. Guaranteed, they'll love you back!

Got Sheep?

We do! We bought Sheep through Heifer International! In a perfect world, everyone would have a pasture of sheep, alpaca and every other beautiful yarn-bearing friend. In reality, many of us need sheep solely for knitting - while others need them to sustain their lives. So we are very proud to say that, with your help, we were able to raise enough money to buy two sheep through our "Buy a sheep" program! We had beautiful paper sheep adorn our walls for the Holidays and, even better, we know we (yes, that includes you) did something to help make the world a better place - sheep and all.
