Weekend Round Up

Weekend Round Up

Plied Knowledge: The week that was…

At the store:

  • Knit 12 Together happened Monday! This month we are working on the Tin Can Knits Barley Light Hat. Our recommended yarn is the Knitted Wit Victory Sock (but any fingering weight will do!) AND if you are feeling fancy and looking to try something new, pair it with some Knitted Wit Fairy Floss!
  • Couldn't make it on Monday? It's never too late to join! Tag us on social media with your progress and color choices with #k12tog- we love to what you are working on!
  • As for the Grapefruit Yogurt Cake that was this month's treat, the recipe can be found at the wonderful Smitten Kitchen's website.
  • Brooklyn Tweed! If you're looking for a sweater's worth of yarn, chances are good we have it...
  • Boxes and boxes of Berroco!
  • Remember those lovely notions tins with the cute animals on top? We have added sheep to the collection!
  • Not a tin person, but prefer bags? We have something new for you, too!
  • Always on the hunt for something to make your life easier when it comes to threading a needle to weave in ends? Take a look at our new hummingbird threading tool. Bonus round? It truly looks like a cute little bird!
  • And don't forget to keep an eye on our classes - we update them regularly!

Around the web:

  • Have you ever noticed that book covers are different in the US than they are in the UK? Absolutely fascinating...
  • Looking to slow down in the new year and the weather keeping you indoors? Here's a list of the best family movies for your weekend and beyond...
  • Was learning to sew on your New Year's Resolution list this year but still feeling intimidated by your machine? Tilly and the Buttons can help get you started...
  • And if you just straight up need a laugh, we give you father of the year!

And totally, completely, unapologetically local:

  • Portlanders may have noticed that the crows seem to be taking over the city at the moment. Think of it more like a crow cocktail party and less like a Hitchcock movie. Interested in learning more? OPB looked into it and there's a portland crow map...

Have a great weekend and remember, you can always find us online!
