New Handmaiden, KAL Updates, and Clearance Event!


August 2020



Handmaiden In House!

Our latest shipment of Handmaiden Sea Silk, Flyss (inventory in soon), and Casbah is in house.  Tina has been working to add everything to our inventory and make sure it's properly stocked.  Don't see the color you want? We are still able to pre-order and have it shipped directly from the dyer! These are amazing yarns for so many projects, but Tina is planning a T-shirt out of either Flyss or Handmaiden.

Summer Time Knitting/Crochet A-Longs



Join Kelli on Mondays and Wednesdays in August for her lace knitalong.  This fun piece is knit sideways with triple yarnovers, yarnovers at the beginning of a row, and short rows.  

July/ August Lace KAL- The Elroy Shawl, Handmaiden Sea Lace or Silk Lace, started July 6, but join in any time. 

It's time for summer knitting and that means Tina can really crack out the veggies. T-shirts and tanks are perfect summer projects to pair with lace and fingering weight cotton, bamboo, Tencel, and linens. Prep for our next Knit-A-Long/Crochet-A-Long by choosing your Handmaiden Sea Silk for the KAL or Universal Flax Lace for the CAL.

Will be featured in Tina's Friday videos

Join Tina and Kelli on the BlackSheep FaceBook Page Mon, Wed, and Fri around Noon-1pm Oregon Time for live videos, question/answer, and help.  Kelli's August videos will be demonstrating how to block a sweater, seam a sweater, add a button band, and sew on buttons. If you miss these live chats we put many of them up afterwards on our YouTube channel




New Location!
Tina has moved and that means the shop has too.  In the near future, you will be able to pick-up orders, make in-person appointments, and occasionally meet for groups at 1310 NE 21st Ave, Hillsboro, OR 97124.  Please contact Tina (tina@blacksheepatorenco.com) with questions or appointment requests.


Summer Clearance!

We have a fabulous selection of clearance yarn right now.  These are yarns that we can no longer source or have chosen to no longer carry. Out with the old and in with the new.  Snag some great yarn at amazing prices and help us make room.  

 


2020 Slow Yarn Crawl

It's back!  We are "couch crawling" with online purchases throughout the summer.  Once things open up, you may still travel to the stores to receive your passport stamps. BlackSheep is even participating as a donor.  We're having extra drawings for any purchases by crawlers during the Slow Yarn Crawl.  For more info, check out our Events page at BlackSheep or go to the Slow Crawl website
