Holiday Crafting!

It’s that time of year and we are seeing lots of crafty holiday projects (and hopes and dreams thereof) coming through our doors. We have a lot planned to help YOU and your crafty self get through the festive season.

HOLIDAY CRAFTING: 1 Day Workshops Series. These workshops are designed to get you up and going on a simple, quick, and easily replicable project (make one for each person on your list!).  See our Wet-Felting Scarf Workshop, Customizable Cowl, Fingerless Gloves Workshop, and our Simple Hat Workshop in this series.

FAMILY FUN: Join us for two scheduled family friendly workshops making felt ornaments. Our wonderfully talented embroidery teacher, Kate Herron, will be leading these workshops designed for kids and parents, too! A great gift or just a fun way to spend the afternoon (photo below is of samples for the class). Read all about it right here.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: Yes, we are bringing back the JPK&S Holiday Gift Guide. This is a DAILY crafty inspiration posted on our homepage every day starting December 1st. We did it last year and we’re going to do it again! We have a few fun surprises up our sleeve…so stay tuned!

Arroyo Ahoy!

Check out our newest yarn, the sport weight, machine washable Malabrigo Arroyo! Like a beefier version of Malabrigo Sock, Arroyo is 100% superwash merino wool, hand dyed in Malabrigo’s ever variable, always beautiful colors. We went with mostly fall-toned hues, some colorful multis, and a pop of pink!

We can’t wait to see the floaty sweaters, beautiful shawls, and super sophisticated baby projects you whip up with our newest yarn!

The knitting season is finally upon us and we are super excited about the NEW yarns we are getting in everyday: Cephalopod Yarns (Skinny Bugga, Bugga, and Traveler); The Fiber Company (Meadow, Acadia, and Tundra); Swan’s Island (Washable Wool); and NEW colors in some our Faves (Manos Maxima + Malabbrigo Worsted).

Greater Boston Yarn Crawl Recap

Thanks to all for coming out and crawling with us this past weekend. We love how the GBYC launches our knitting season in a big way! Thanks to the indie yarn founders, creative directors, and dyer/spinners that visited us: Diane from Lady Dye Fibers, Amy from Knit Collage, and Sarah from Cephalopod Yarns.  You (and your yarns) inspire us! If you missed the Crawl, not to worry, we have lots of lovely skeins for your next project from our featured yarn companies.

A special shout out to the gals at Black Sheep Knitting for organizing!

Greater Boston Yarn Crawl

Update: We’ve posted details of our fabulous events this weekend: Lady Dye on Friday, Knit Collage on Saturday, and Cephalopod Yarns on Sunday. And stop by the shop to scope out the fabulous raffle prizes we’ll be giving away. You just have to see these yarns in person!

We are so excited to be hosting knitters from near and far for our THIRD year with the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl, OCTOBER 3-5. Thanks go out to Black Sheep Knitting in Needham for stepping up to organize again this year. We really love meeting knitters from outside our usual community; it’s such fun to see what people are making in the Greater Boston Area.

This year our theme is INDIE YARN COMPANIES. We are inspired by these three woman-owned businesses and what they were able to create from their love of yarn. First up is our very own uber-local Diane Ivey from Lady Dye Fibers on Friday, October 4th. She’ll be showing off her hand-dyed yarn, patterns, and samples. Saturday we will welcome the wonderful Amy, founder and creative director of KnitCollage. She will be sitting and spinning her magic for us and showing off her amazing + unique yarns. Sunday we are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the first ever Northeast appearance of Cephalopod Yarns (fromerly one half of Sanguine Gryphon Yarns). Sarah will be to show off (and sell!) a special assortment of her vibrant, hand dyed yarn in a variety of weights, including the beloved sock yarn, Bugga!

We will be giving away a FREE never before published Cowl pattern by Susan Sheby and other surprises (champagne? mini cupcakes? …)

Thank You to Our Campers!

Our last session of Summer Kids Camp wrapped up yesterday, and it’s been an absolute blast! Our campers turned old clothes into awesome new clothes (and toy pandas!), dyed yarn, made drop spindles and spun yarn, felted wool, knitted (of course!), embroidered shoes and made friendship bracelets. We want to thank each of our campers and their parents for making our very first summer of camp such a fun + crafty success.

Now school is back in session, and so are our weekly kids classes. We’ve got classes for all sorts of interests and skill levels:

September Classes:

October Classes:

Below, some projects from our last camp session, Kate’s Embroidery/Canvas Shoes + Friendship Bracelets. Kate will also be teaching Glow-in-the-Dark Halloween Masks on October and Wednesday Night Embroidery: Sublime Stitches starting this Wednesday.
