Weekend Round Up!

Plied Knowledge: The week that was…

At the store:

  • A long-awaited and much-anticipated shipment of Woolen Boon arrived! Definitely take a look while we have a full stock of their beautiful, hand dyed speckles...
  • For the needle felters out there we just got in a unicorn felting kit AND some fabulous sparkle fiber! Everything is improved with sparkle...
  • To keep the Rose City Yarn Crawl spirit going a little longer, our 2019 featured colors in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Lightweight and Featherlight AND Moon & Other Satellites kits containing those colors are still 10% off through the end of March. Use discount code "rcyctid" at checkout!
  • Brooklyn Tweed arrived for a restock of their wonderful marls in Shelter. Does The Weekender by Andrea Mowry call to you in Narwhal, Caribou or Newsprint? Because we can make that happen!
  • Madder Anthology 3, the third and final from the series by Carrie Bostick Hoge, arrived and is lovely as ever...
  • Also new on the publication front is Interpretations Volume 6 with Joji Locatelli and Veera Valimaki - not to be missed!
  • Crochet alert! We have just added some more Crochet Studio classes to the schedule! Not sure what that means? It's very much like our regularly Studio class for knit projects but this time you can bring whatever crochet projects you are stuck on and Anny will happily give you some guidance. And don't forget to keep an eye on our classes - we update them regularly!

Around the web:

  • Sadly the Twistedista's are still dealing with cold and flu season. To help us all, here are a few recipes to get everyone through what is hopefully the end with Spring finally here...
  • If you are healthy and feeling the DIY bug instead, here's a fun tutorial for a circus animal pillow...
  • For the trivia buffs, did you know that the Playtex company played a part in creating the original space suits? It's a fascinating story of rubber, puncture resistant latex technology and still allowing movement...
  • And finally for the music lovers, South By Southwest just wrapped and if you were not lucky enough to attend, fear not! NPR has your back. Not only do they have the Austin 100, but they have an Austin 100 Alumni Edition, a Tiny Desk Family Hour set that were all recorded in Austin during the festival and finally a Pop Culture Happy Hour episode devoted to music discoveries from the festival.

And totally, completely, unapologetically local:

  • Like Queen Bee, Betsy & Iya is a locally owned, small business that continues to grow and expand beyond their original start of just jewelery. If you are lucky enough to be local or passing through, be sure not to miss their brick and mortar store but online shopping is never a bad backup plan!

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