We're here! No phone!

The good news is that our move is done and our grand opening opening on Saturday, October 3rd, was a huge success. Many of you came by to visit us at the new shop.
The bad news is that our GYG phone is not hooked up yet, so we cannot pick up your phone calls yet. The disruption is temporary (maybe 10 days) and our phone number will not be changing.

If you have not had a chance to visit us yet, we're keeping the same hours in our new location, so please come by and check us out!

We've got gorgeous new yarn from Shibui on display - Staccato,Pebble, and Maai, all blends of Merino yarn with silk, cashmere, and/or alpaca for a superior quality and a luxurious knitting experience.

We've also added more yarn to our 40% discount bins- many of our Saturday visitors found great deals and went home with surprise winnings.

Our space features great sitting areas to look over pattern books, get advise from other knitters, plan your next knitting project or just chat with friends. Come by and say "Hello" to Mo!
