a bowl of chocolate ice cream and
you’re about to knit with $200 yarn.
Stay safe and healthy, knit friends.
We’ve got some brand new things at MAKS for you to check out!
Our new chunky weight yarn is a blend of alpaca, kid mohair, and nylon. Create accessories and garments that are soft, fuzzy, and light with this unique hand-dyed yarn. Use by itself or held together with one of our classic workhorse yarns.
Your new favorite yarn you didn’t know you were missing. This baby alpaca, wool, and nylon blend come in an easy to work chainette yarn. The subtle speckled colors in this heavy worsted yarn create soft and light, yet warm accessories and garments.
Millefiori Light Luxe
Our Millefiori Light Luxe is just that kiss of glam you can give to all your favorite Millefiori Light projects. Colors ebb and flow in the Millefiori Light yarn you already love with a subtle sparkle.
A beautiful color flow with the soft halo of mohair is what makes Tiramisu a wonderful yarn to work with. A light worsted weight yarn containing wool, acrylic, mohair, and silk. The colors flow from brights to dark to make a beautiful self-striping fabric.
Her Story-September 2020: Yalitza Aparicio, a Mexican actress who made her film debut in 2018’s Roma, which centers on the Indigenous experience in Mexico, is the highlighted woman. For her performance, she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress, becoming the first Indigenous American woman and the second Mexican woman to receive a Best Actress Oscar nomination, following Salma Hayek for her role in 2002’s Frida. Beautiful yarn, beautiful woman!

We will be returning to the virtual format for the Fall Retreat and it will run from October 2nd – November 13, 2020. If you participated in the Spring Retreat, you are automatically signed up for the Fall Retreat. If you haven’t signed up yet, why are you waiting? The cost is $25.00 and we will have patterns and 20% off coupons sent out to you during the event for the featured product/pattern supplies for that week. In the final week of the event, you will receive a 20% off coupon for yarn purchases from the online store (some exclusions apply). We really enjoyed the weekly ZOOM meetings and will continue those with some additions. We are currently working to add additional virtual meetings to the schedule to introduce you to yarn and pattern designers (more information coming soon!).
