Knitting with Company

Knitting with Company is a knitting retreat in the truest sense: a moment away, a moment of peace and quiet, a moment to withdraw with your needles and yarn and knit. In a place that inspires calm and relaxation, it's a weekend just for you, at The Lodge on Lake Detroit, with Olga Buraya-Kefelian, Julie Hoover, Catherine Lowe, and Michele Wang. As you work on one of these four inspiring designers' patterns, you'll benefit from their wisdom, insight, and practical advice. Our Pop Up shop will be stocked with yarn, patterns, kits, and accessories. You'll hang out with friends, make new ones, enjoy a beautiful resort, eat good food, and relax! Download the retreat brochure and call 651.222.5793 to register—space is limited. 


introducing woolfolk

We see a lot of new yarn, and frankly, we're not easily seduced. Woolfolk, though, is different. Ultimate Merino, the source of this stunning new yarn, comes from sheep raised in the Patagonian Grasslands, by a collective committed to unparalleled stewardship of land and sustainability practices. None of that would matter if the yarn didn't hit the mark, but this is truly the most luxurious yarn we have brought to our shop, and we are proud to introduce it to you.
Kristin Ford, Woolfolk's founder, has considered every detail. Two weights and type of construction for versatile knitting: Tynd is plied and light weight,Får is a more substantial chainette construction. In her recent review, Clara Parkes called these yarns "unique for their remarkable heritage and exquisite hand." The palette is muted and sophisticated, for a wardrobe full of instant classics. And the design support? Look for remarkable garments by Olga Buraya-Kefelian and Antonia Shankland. We'll have them all soon.
