Chickadee is a little darling—soft, plump, springy, and eager to loop into intricate color patterns or delicate textures. Its three plies, spun from softest American wool, are twisted together firmly enough
to be sturdy, yet gently enough to be soft and cushiony.  at just a little over $7 per 181 yd/50g skeins…you will find Chickadee a great value for your sport weight knitting.

Events and Announcements

Cornerstone Inn Bed and Breakfast/111 Washington Square, Washington IL 61571

Brown Bag Swap for Cornerstone Inn Fall Retreat

Dive into your stash to find a skein of fingering weight/sock yarn. Put the skein in a brown bag along with your name.  Should be in the hank, not used and let’s also say fairly fresh.  If it has been marinating in your stash for more than a few years and is a little dusty, choose something a little newer.  Include your name on the inside of the bag.

Spring Retreat will be March 14-15 with optional yarn crawl fun day on March 13.  Feel free to make overnight reservations if you like in case we need more rooms at Sleep Inn.

Sarah talked about the beautiful spider webs that appear every morning.
