Real men prefer knitters....
because it means they may get a great sweater to wear. This dapper gentleman is Stanley, husband of Harriet, an expert knitter with an eye for color and design. She choose Rowan Aran Cashsoft in Charcoal and a handpaint from Schaffer to strand together for this sweater. Doesn't he look handsome? The two of them are a beautiful couple

We love it when husbands, boyfriends, men friends and the rare, man knitter come into the store. We get to hear their opinions and see what choices they make. They love beautiful yarn as much as we do. One couple who come in regularly from the shore spend time finding just the right color for his socks. They love Mission Falls 1824 Superwash Merino. When we order more yarn, I always think of them and their next visit! Men also love the tools we use. They spend time looking at the looms, wheels and handmade needles we carry, examining them and trying to figure out how they are made or work. It's fun.
