What's on Our Needles?

Pattern: Meredith Cardi by Ruth Maddock
Yarn: Cashmerino by Lang

This sweet baby/toddler cardigan is worked from the top down with a beautiful lace yoke. It knits up fast and will make a wonderful gift for any little one!

Pattern: The Lazy Hiker by Laura Dobratz
Yarn: Practically Perfect Sock by Emma's Yarn

Using two contrasting colors of sock yarn, this beautiful shawl knit by Linda is something a little bright and cheerful. It's an easy knit with some lace sections to add some interest while knitting and wearing! Linda is using colorways: Barbie Girl and Wing It.

Pattern: Sweetly Simple Baby Leg Warmers by Nat Raedwulf
Yarn: Simplicity by Hikoo

A special request from Linda's daughter, these Hogwarts leg warmers will be the perfect gift for little Haley's 9 & 3/4 month "birthday." They are perfect for a little ones whose parents are Harry Potter fans, but of course you can knit them in any color you choose.

Pattern: Knit It Like You Stole It by Mac & Joe
Yarn: Smooshy with Cashmere by Dream in Color

This large wrap is a fun knit and a great way to use up some of your stash yarn! The pattern calls for 5 skeins - variegated, solid, gradient, whatever - but you could use several partial skeins for a great result. You will really enjoy the mix of garter stitch and lace while knitting and while wearing your final wrap!

The Shop and Online Store are Both Open!

BYS is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (10am - 4pm)

We are also now offering TWO ways to shop our store without coming inside. Our online store is now available, and we will continue to fill phone orders. We will also be offering suggestions for kits periodically. Please call the shop anytime (and leave a message if we are not answering) if you would like to pick up or if you would like us to ship to you.

For in-store shopping, a limited number of customers will be allowed to enter the shop at one time and for shopping only. If you have a mask, please wear it for your protection as well as ours. Remember, we must follow social distancing at all times. Sorry friends, no sit and knit as yet.

If you are in need of help with one of our projects, please call the shop for an appointment to ensure that we will be available to help. Please remember, if you are sick we cannot let you in. We can however, take your order over the phone and place it outside for your pickup.

We hope to continue to fill your needs as your local yarn shop and we look forward to the time when we can sit and knit together again!
