Crochet Along
So excited about the new Mandobug Crochet Along to make the Double Down Shawl.        The pattern is a freebie that uses a DK-weight llama yarn (yep, we have some) that makes a long, shallow scarf.   There are four colors and it uses a 4.0 mm hook....

Pssst….   Have you heard we are having a ginormous yarn sale starting this Saturday, 1/26 from 10 am – 5 pm as well as the following two Saturdays (2/2 and 2/9) as well?

The sale is long overdue – haven’t had a big sale in six years.   Help us out by coming and taking advantage of 50% off of yarns not currently in the shop…and giving us a bit of space to walk in the new cottage!  SMILE!

The Tinsmith’s Wife loves fiber, cats, and coffee….

We encourage you to bring your current project and join us for a morning or an afternoon. There are several comfy spots to sit (next to a cat or two), and there is always laughter and inspiration. There are also great antique shops, yummy places to eat, and a sense of stepping back in time, just outside our doors.

In a nutshell – we have a lot of great stuff! The journey is walking through the rooms of our amazing historic building and coming across another gem of luscious inspiration.
