Sample Sale Begins This Friday!!
Loads and loads of Westport Yarns hand knit samples will go on sale beginning tomorrow - Friday May 3rd. There will be sweaters, shawls, hats, throw blankets, baby knits and more! This is the largest Sample Sale ever, and there's no silent auction as has been done in the past - all items will be priced to sell, as is. Now is your chance to wear hand knits without investing the time it takes to make them yourself!

Another Wonderful Knitting Retreat in Block Island!
Another amazing knitting retreat is in the books. We were so happy to see return retreaters as well as so many new participants. It’s such a great opportunity to share our love and enthusiasm for all things wooly!
Despite a couple of curve balls from Mother Nature, everything ran smoothly, thanks in large part to our friend Sven from North Light Fibers and delightful Rita from The 1661 Inn. But the true energy behind the retreat was our own Beth who worked tirelessly to make everyone happy. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
