Father’s Day!

Father’s Day!

Father's Day is this Sunday!  Dad's deserve something handmade, and we've got some ideas for you.  We have Manos Silk Blend yarn, just in, and the Artic Shadows colorway would make a super handsome hat (think Men's Metrosexual Beanie by Haley Waxberg, free on Ravelry here) or scarf (maybe the Prismatic Scarf by Huan-Hua Chye, free on Ravelry here) for your super dad. 

Also, some of our fashion "in-siders" tell us that knit ties are hot in haute couture this year.  Check out Tie, by Pam Allen, free through Ravelry here, or the Bias Knit Tie (pictured), by Shirley Paden, available for purchase from Interweave Knits here.  Self-striping or patterned sock yarn makes the best ties, ever.

Come in to see our manly, red toolbox (thanks, Maria) overflowing with stylish, but manly,  sock yarn.  Father's Day gift tip: The promise of future hand-knit socks has more impact when it is wrapped up with a beautiful ball of sock yarn.
