Open under new ownership!
WoolWinders Yarn Shop is now open under new ownership! The shop is stocked with lots of new, yummy yarn and have a wide variety of classes to help you learn a new technique or get help from our excellent teachers in our daily Safaris. I’m particularly excited about Fyberspates Scrumptious Chunky, a merino and silk blend out of the UK. This yarn is perfect for quick knits (or crochet) like cowls, and the colors are simply gorgeous.
I can’t wait for you to see...

This just goes to show you that with the right amount of patience and perseverance, you can knit and crochet anything! So, now it’s your turn! What will you make...
PREPARING FOR NEW BEGINNINGS!
Last night we held an informal meet and greet to give the staff and a few loyal safari class members an opportunity to get to know the new owner, Amy Murphy, a little bit better! The evening was filled with food, friendship, plans for the future, and, of course, our favorite activity: knitting! Here are a few pics from the...
A LESSON IN DYE LOTS!
Last night I earned a big, “shame on me!” Ok, so I am knitting an afghan for my son and a huge section of it is just mindless stockinette stitch. We were going to a movie that was, let’s just say, rather testosterone-driven and I was more enthused by the prospect of the popcorn than the actual movie. Hey, I have spent the last 20+ years living in a testosterone-driven household so this is nothing new, lol. However, this night, I decided I...
