A pattern for your entire list

With the holiday season quickly approaching, many of us here at the Spinnery have started planning and crafting our handknit gifts.  When the knitworthy list is long, smaller projects are a perfect choice; and those that can easily travel move to the top of our list.  We wanted to share our current favorite with you […]


One last Snow Day

If you follow our Instagram feed, than you may have seen that Maureen recently cast off a Snow Day Shawl designed by Knitting Expat Designs. This beauty is created with three skeins of Spinnery Cotton Comfort (seen above in Juniper, Weathered Green and Unbleached White). This shawl stole its fair share of attention at our booth […]


Just around the corner

Temperatures are warming up here in Vermont and that has us eagerly anticipating Spring, which is likely to be delayed by a few more messy late winter storms.  In an effort to change our perspective on any upcoming precipitation, we’ve got a new pattern to play with: Wintery Mix. We hope that this project will have us looking […]

Thea Colman’s Greenbriar Cardigan

A couple of weeks ago we shared with our Facebook friends that Thea Colman (of Babycocktails fame) had published a new cardigan worth taking a look at.  Her new Greenbriar cardigan was designed with Spinnery Mewesic yarn. Thea fell in love with these skeins when she and Ellen Mason came to the Spinnery to teach our Knitter’s Weekend […]


Terrific savings, rain or shine

The Athens Key Hat

Alpaca Elegance DRAGON WELL

This time of year has many of us doing a bit of armchair traveling.  From the cozy comfort of our chairs by the fire we can dream of warmer climates and alluring locales around the globe.  Occasionally, those dreams of far off places can inform and inspire our knitwear designs. Cap Sease created a beautiful […]

We’ll have some […]
