I want to thank them for explaining to me how to do short rows never done them before
Do you give lessons in crocheting?
Friendly, helpful, great selection. Love Yarn Over. Very supportive to new yarn people.
Wonderful selection. Supportive to newbie-me.
We still have room for more vendors and would love to have more fiber artists at our Montessori Marketplace!
we only get better with age
What are the rules regarding taking knitting needles on an airplane? A family member is traveling from India to the states and heard that if she had wooden knitting needles, she could bring knitting needles on a plane. Can anyone shed some light on this?
WOOT, i'm finally coming home tomorrow and plan to drop by the store, can't wait to see how it's going (and buy lovely lovely yarn!).
I'm borrowing this picture of Zoe from the Alfred Box of Books Library FB page. It was used in their tribute post and seems to belong here as well
Great article!
Best wishes to you, Amie, I think you have finally found your niche, and you will do just fine. You have a great support group rooting for you.

This is my favorite kind of winter day. There's snow on the ground, the sun is bright and warm, and the light reflects off the snow making everything look brighter and more alive. It's the kind of day that nourishes and strengthens creativity. What are you doing creatively this weekend? #winterinwny #sunshineonsnow #ilovewinter

[02/22/20]   Hey everyone - a bit of a funky schedule today. We're closing at 1pm to attend a memorial service then re-opening at 3pm, then closing at our normal 6pm.

[02/21/20]   Running late! Be there ASAP

We've done some rearranging in the shop this month and you can see the results as soon as you come in! We've doubled the shelf space in our Fancies section, creating a stunning wall of color. Kali the #shopdog posing in front makes for an even better picture!

Working on a fun new #shopsample using @cascadeyarns line of recycled yarn! This is ReBound, a soft blend of recycled #cotton and polyester. I'm really enjoying the hand of this yarn and am pleased with the results so far! #cascadeyarn #recycledyarn #recycledcotton #newyarn

[02/11/20]   Stuck at home today 🤢

[02/08/20]   The roads are getting worse, as are the sidewalks. Closing early!

[02/07/20]   Stay safe on the roads, friends. We're closed until they get better

[02/06/20]   Hey y'all, no knit night tonight as the forecast is predicting freezing rain

[02/05/20]   Hey everyone, I have a doctor's appointment in Rochester tomorrow so the store will be closed.

Jiaxi Ding forced disappearance

This post isn't about yarn but it is about community

Sophie and her family are members of the Alfred community. Her husband is a civil rights lawyer and has been TAKEN by the Chinese government and held without charge, without access to his lawyer. Please watch and share, contact your congressperson, reach out to Sophie online. We cannot let this family endure another unjust, and illegal, forced separation

[01/28/20]   Closing at 4:30 today to attend the Spirit of Service Awards!

[01/25/20]   I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience and the late notice but I'm taking a mental health day today.

Did you hear about our mending class coming up this week? Part of our Mid-Winter Fiber Fun Workshops, this class is an introduction to sock darning. Friday, January 24th (this Friday!) bring a pair of socks that have seen better days and learn to darn them yourself. Class is from 10:00am-12:00 noon and costs $20. #darning #darnit #mendyourclothes #darnyoursocks #mending

Eco+Hemp by Cascade Yarns.
.
I recently finished a sample using one of our new yarns Eco+Hemp from @cascadeyarns and I'm in LOVE with it! 80/20 wool/hemp blends beautifully and the color palette comes in dyed and undyed shades. As you see here, I blended a warm mustard with an undyed shale and the result is lovely. I get a real 70s vibe from it, is it just me? #cascadeyarn #eco+hemp #newyarn #undyedyarn #garterstitch #greatgarterstitch

Mason-Dixon Knitting

The Force is with knitter Erin Ollis. Thanks, Chicago Tribune!

It's so nice to see this face again! ❤❤ Coming back from vacation always feels hectic and overwhelming; so much to catch up on. I looked up just now and saw this sweet, loving dog looking at me and felt so grateful to be home again. #shopdogsofinstagram #shopdog #germanshepherdmix #dogstagram

New class alert! It's almost time for our Mid-Winter Fiber Fun Workshops and this one is going to be fun: Simple Dorset Buttons. Taught by local artist Carlyn Yanda, you'll learn how, using a small amount of yarn, to make whimsical and functional Dorset buttons. Historically these were made with the yarn covering a piece of a Dorset sheep's horn, however we will be doing ones without a button inside. Not only can they be used for buttons but for garland, appliques, and more! Link to our website on our profile page, must pre-register! #dorsetbuttons #yarnbuttons #otherusesforyarn

We're on vacation! The store will be closed today through Tuesday the 7th and will reopen at noon on Wednesday. As you can probably guess by this picture we're not headed anywhere tropical ☹

Yarn Over

One of my favorite things about makers is their generosity of spirit. This picture comes from a customer who regularly purchases @cascadeyarns Cherub to make mittens for children. She, along with other members of her Grange, make hats, mittens, and scarves for every child in the community Pre-K. She knitted every pair of mittens; this year it was 110. I'm so proud to support her and this project ❤ #givingback #communityinvolvement #knittingforgood #knittingforkids

[12/27/19]   I'm starting to post the Mid-Winter Workshop classes, both here and on our website. Grab a spot quick, there's a limited number of seats available and lots of people interested!

[12/21/19]   Aaaand we're home sick again 😔 we WILL, however, be open Christmas eve day!

[12/18/19]   Hi again friends. Looks like one day wasn't enough to get rid of whatever this is so the store will be closed again today. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience, this is one of the downsides of being a one woman show!

[12/17/19]   Hi friends! It looks like the store is going to be closed today due to unexpected health concerns. Hoping to be open tomorrow!

[12/11/19]   We had some unexpected drama last night so I'm taking a mental health day today. We'll be open tomorrow for knit night!

Almost finished making presents! After seeing and squishing the shop sample pillow my mom made using @cascadeyarns Cherub Bulky I decided to make a pair for my friend's kids. They're the perfect thing to snuggle with when you need something soft or are drifting off to sleep. One down, one to go! #cascadeyarn #cherubbulky #knittedpillow #handmadeholidays

The EIEIO wall has been replenished and re-arranged and is a show stopper! Lots of new colors to choose from in the Harmony line: all beautiful and inspiring. It's also displayed with our house line Red Label.

Today feels like a good day to shake things up! We're moving some things around to freshen up the store. It's funny how, when things are arranged a bit differently, you see them as if they're brand new. I consider myself an observant person and this has happened to me several times recently so why not give it a try here!

Our new favorite yarn! Beach Pebbles from @plymouthyarn has little slubs that, when purled, give the look of dotted swiss fabric. It's fun and quick to knit this cozy cowl shown here, a free pattern courtesy of Plymouth Yarn. #plymouthyarn #newyarn #plymouthbeachpebbles #knittedcowl

A gift certificate is the perfect choice for the maker in your life! And what maker wouldn't be thrilled to receive one, knowing a yarn bonanza is on the horizon

Today is our holiday open house! Along with promotions and giveaways we also have FOOD. Thanks so much to @gjmickle14895 and The Rosebush for these amazing treats. Kali the #shopdog has been looking longingly at them since they arrived. The open house goes until 7 so why not have your dinner here while you treat yourself to some yarn? #holidayopenhouse #yum

After the busy-ness of last week I was looking forward to a restful weekend. In this case my restful weekend involved knitting three hats for the Hats for Hunger program we host at the store. Each hat is only $12 and all the money goes to buying milk at the food pantry next door. We have a display of several hats when you first walk in and an enormous selection in the back. #knittedhat #knittingforcharity #hatsforhunger #knitforgood

All of our Small Business Saturday specials!

Today's featured yarn is Roslyn by @cascadeyarns and these are only some of the available colors. It's a sport weight yarn that works beautifully for shawls and lace as well as special baby sweaters like the one pictured. We've already had a busy day with more prizes given away but we still have some left! #cascadeyarn #cascaderoslyn #yarnspecial #yarnsale #smallbusinesssaturday
