01/01/15: Off to a great start.

What better way to start off the New Year, really, than to celebrate your accomplishments in the year just ended? Right up until the last day the shop was open in 2014, new finished projects were coming in to have their pictures taken. We look ahead to a year filled with even more FOs, brand new yarn and designs (as well as fresh ideas for the classics), and sharing our love of the fiber arts with you. We can’t wait to see what will inspire and excite you in 2015!

Note: With so many amazing projects to share, just photos, the names of the makers and designers, and the yarns used are included here.
