Vogue Knitting Live just hosted a retreat at Imperial Stock Ranch, Creative Knitting Magazine just did an article and so did Oregen Culture.
Say goodbye to chores, work, stress and have a relaxing weekend with some awesome woman and knitting.
Call up your BFF, knitting buddy or sister and hop on this knitting train. Yee! Ok I’m only a little excited. But it does happen to fall on my 29th birthday weekend💕
I hope I see your beautiful faces sitting on the bus to the ranch 😃
Ok knitters pride aren’t new but they are super fabulous and we just received a new shipment
We have so many fun things currently in the shop. New project bags by Hadaki, BlockHead Press, Chicken Boots, and Slip Stitch Studios.
New colors of Pencil roving by Imperial Yarns, new Imperial patterns, and we have re stocked our Columbia and Anna yarn as well. (If you haven’t yet sign up for the retreat- do it! It’s going to be epic!)
Coco Knits has some fabulous patterns out. The Weekend Wrap vest that takes #17 needles and drapes so perfectly?! Oh yes I will knit that, thank you.
The Necessary Cowl kits are flying out the door and this will be your last chance to get your hands on these, lustable, discontinued yarns.
We also have Classic Elite, Manos and Madeline Tosh on its way!
And check the website for class updates. Julie of Coco Knits, beginning knitting, beginning crochet, self fringe shawl, any time tank, top down sweater… Lots of fun classes!
This week I’ll be sharing some pretty fun knits. Erika Knight vest(s) adult and kid versions, my Imperial Stock Ranch sweater, what I did with the Shi Bui linen.
Seasons are a changing! Fashion is evolving and spring is here! The shop girls are switching things up. Out with the cold and in with the new. Linen, cotton, bamboo, and light weight fibers. The set up is awesome and I am falling in love with spring/ summer yarns, textures and color ways.
In particular is a gorgeous linen by Shi Bui. I’ve been lusting after the coral and navy – would make the best striped, loose knit sweater or scarf or floppy hat… Ahh I’ve picked up the combo so many times I feel like the sweater exists.
Erika Knight says “knit all summer long” and since she is a knit genius – I’ll be planning out my summer knits. Have you seen the “fur gillet”?! Um yes please! Ev and I will be matching matching 😉 It’s so on trend and knits up in a weekend. Unique pieces are essential! And pieces that go fall/ winter/ summer?! The best.
Knitterly is filled with bright colors, soft yarns, light weight textures and guess what I saw a box of?? Unpacked! Madeline Tosh. Holy amazing yarn! seriously not going to be here long – our shop girls are drooling already!
We also have the trunk show for the Coastal knits book. It’s so good. We sell the book $22 and have all the samples to try on.
For all you lantern moon needles lovers we have something exciting in! Rosewood interchangeable lantern moon circulars! Yep! They are really nice.
So much coming in and coming up. We will have Julie of Coco Knits here, Imperial Stock Ranch retreat (reserve your spot! Going fast) interviews with amazing designers and fiber artists (Don’t you want to know who?!)
What are you excited to knit?? Spring knitting projects? Tell me! I love to talk knit/ design/ yarn…
Something’s are burned into us. By stories we heard, songs, images from books, or our own imaginations. My Great Grandmother, Thelma, shaped so much of who I am today and how I raise my own children.
She taught me to crochet, introduced my brother and I to Entemann’s, little Debbie, Bonanza and Davvy Crocket, baked cookies (often) taught us you can never know too much, be a proud American, stand by your beliefs, … She used to sing us to sleep with old cowboy songs and read us stories about horses and the frontier. I used to play “prairie girl” in the back yard. Ha ha
This is my segue into the Imperial Stock Ranch and how I can’t wait to play farm… In May! It’s so amazing watch this video and you will want to be one on the plane with us to this one of a kind retreat.
The ranch is run by a hard working family who believes in what they do. It’s amazing and inspiring and I just want to catch whatever it is they have!
The yarn is great, the view will be incredible, knitting classes, YARN, food prepared for us, yarn, just being in the beautiful country. I mean – come on – its knitting heaven, the quiet, gorgeous scenery, and knitting classes?!
Even the place we stay is run by the daughter and son in law of the ranch family. Knitting seems to be the bonus of the weekend 😉
I called to order yarn last week and had the nicest chat with the owner, sweet man. And his daughter in law, was so cool! She had to call me back (he didn’t know the low down on yarn orders and his people were out on lunch… He said he could have taken at least five orders while they were out) and she told me all about the ranch and how excited they are to host our retreat. She had me ready to drive on over and have some coffee☕
So I’m romanticizing about knitting on a porch with hot coffee as the sun comes up over -whatever majestic -mountain is painted in the backdrop of this beautiful place.
Yep! That’s right we are having a retreat at the Imperial Stock Ranch. Soooo relaxing. Sooooo much fun! WE haven’t firmed up the cost yet , it’s being figured out asap. May 17th thru May 19th. Fly in to Portland on Friday around 2pm to meet our ground transportation to the Ranch, stay at the family lodge. Food, lodging, ground transportation, knitting classes, materials for classes,ranch tours & demonstrations, and much more are included in the price (once I figure it out). Attendees will be responsible for their own air transportation. More details to follow…. just had to share I’m so excited!
We have a new class at the shop this month! Our fabulous shop girl Gayle is teaching this delicate looking scarf. It’s so awesome. At first glance it looks basic, drop stitch, Stockinette… But it has a crazy diagonal thing happening. The Stockinette side is so pretty.
The next session starts tomorrow Feb. 13 from 6-8. It’s a two part class, the second class is the following Wednesday Feb. 20 from 6-8pm. Sign up asap! The class is filling up.
Gayle used Tosh merino light, which is gorgeous and soft. The scarf is also long enough to wrap around a few times. I just went in to the shop and gayle was wearing it wrapped up like a cowl, so cute!
And look how much FUN it is to wear!
I am so excited to be having my lovely gems at the yarn shop. I have quite a few new pieces from the spring/ summer line and I adore them! If you can’t make the show Sunday check out my online shop and you can buy under “Knitterly” trunk show. The ‘Sanibel Pendant’ Is amazing and can be worn FOUR different ways and the ‘Mesa’ is my favorite! It can also be worn FOUR different ways and is super pretty, dressy or casual. Check them out! My ‘Mesa’ is in the mail and I am hoping I get it in time for the show.
I will be set up and taking orders from 12-2:30 on Sunday. Don’t miss the fabulous goods for trying on and I willeven have a couple jewelies to purchase that day.

We are so excited for the sale we are practically jumping up and down. Don’t we agree that presentation is what it’s allll about?!
These kits are so much prettier than having bins of sale yarn all tossed together and just waiting to lose their labels 😉
You will love the display! Yeee! I love them ALLL soooo much! I won’t be working at the warehouse sale because my greedy yarn having hands will want to hoard every bag! He he
