Another winner from Thea!

We are not alone in our admiration for Thea Colman’s newest pattern!  A quick search of this week’s most popular patterns in Raverly will bring her Fernet Branca to the top of your screen.  And a quick glance at her photos will show you why.  Everything about this sweater says, “knit me!” This cozy oversize […]

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 […]


Signs of Spring

In celebration of the first hints of Spring that have appeared in Vermont this week, we have a new pattern to share with you that has made our winter months more colorful.  We’ve been hard at work over the past several weeks knitting up samples that have made us feel like artists. Our Expressionist Shawl pairs […]

Off the needle superstars

We love browsing through photos on Ravelry.  It can be so inspiring to see what other folks are working on and better yet, what they’ve recently finished.  This week, we want to share some of our favorites so that you can enjoy these knits as much as we do.  You might find your next project […]


One last Snow Day

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 […]


A knit along to welcome spring

Whether Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow or not, we want to herald in the eventual arrival of spring with a fun knit along that will keep us stitching together through Vermont’s mud season. We’ll be casting on this weekend for our Groundhog Day KAL that kicks off this morning, and we hope that you’ll join […]

Up until now, these patterns were exclusively available to those who signed up for club membership at the beginning of 2016.  Now that the membership for our current Project Club has been filled, we can […]


Winter woolens

As temperatures start to drop and days become shorter, we find ourselves drawn to working on projects that will take a bit more time.  The prospect of sitting quietly with a lap full of knitting is comforting; and so larger projects have a greater appeal.  With this in mind, earlier this fall Maureen teamed up […]

Nonetheless, we’d like to pass it along to you as a little […]
