Silver Spotlight

The angels sang: it is silver, and it is good.  And it was the new sofa at Stash, via the fabulous and handy Jessica at Mod Pod.

Finally, a glamorous yet cozy place to relax, peruse patterns, and knit or crochet.

And if you’re me, a great place to pose yarn for a moment in the silver spotlight!

New in the shop this week: Louie Love from Pico Accuardi Dyeworks, a completely Oregon made yarn in an angora wool blend.

Heichi silk in six saturated shades by Shibui Knits, plus the pattern book to inspire your project planning.

New arrivals in books, yarn, and notions every week.  Come by and see what’s new!

Tis the Season

For candy corn, that is.  The sweet little niblets come around just once a year, and I tend to overdo it each season.  This year I’ve had a candy dish of the stuff on the counter at Stash, and we have all been enjoying it.  One day I forgot to bring lunch and ended up eating candy corn and almonds instead.  No matter how good it may be, candy corn is not actually a vegetable, nor is it good for you.  Did I mention I’m going in to the dentist to get my first ever fillings tomorrow? That could explain the bender (I’ll show you, cavities!).

One way to get your candy corn fix without risk of dental damage is by knitting up this charming hat.  It is a Tot Toppers pattern called Red Light Green Light Go knit with Superwash Falkland yarn from Knitted Wit.  We have kits in the shop in the colors of the season as well as the bolder red, green, and yellow of the namesake stoplight. Each kit includes enough yarn to make a hat and matching mittens ranging in size from teeny to adult.

What’s your favorite Halloween candy?

In the Beginning…

…there was yarn. And a space. And a shop girl hoping the knitters, spinners and crocheters would come see it.

And they did.

It was a great opening weekend at Stash! I have been humbled and overwhelmed by all the people coming in to say hi, shop for yarn, and share information with each other. This is going to be a bustling new community of yarn crafters, and I am beyond thrilled to be a part of it!

A Work in Progress

Stash has been a work in progress for a long time.  From that first little seed of a dream buried deep within, to an empty storefront, and now a stocked yarn shop, we’ve come a long way.  Now, just days away from the official opening day, I thought it would be fun to take a look at how for we’ve come in the weeks since signing that lease.


Where’s the yarn, you ask?  Okay, here’s a little peek:

Stay tuned to this space for more updates as things really get exciting.  Opening day is this Thursday, October 13th!
