It's Sweater Weather! Are You Ready?


September 2022


Chunky, Worsted, Fingering?

What is your favorite sweater weight yarn? Kelli is playing with the Soft Chunky to design a new sweater, but is that her favorite weight? No!  Kelli's favorite is the fingering weight Donegal like the Ardis  Sweater by Ann Budd.  The lovely Laskeran sweater from Melissa Leapman in our Soft Donegal is pretty amazing too.  Are you knitting a sweater this fall?  

Take 10% off all yarn that isn't on clearance through Oct. 5, 2022! No code needed. 


Speaking of Clearance 

Snag your clearance yarn and items fast! Tina is taking a batch to Oregon Flock and Fiber.  So if you have been coveting a clearance yarn, now is the best time to take it home.

Lace Embrace Oklahoma


Kelli is making the trek to Bartlesville, OK for the Lace Embrace Day on October 1, 2022.  So if you've been hoping to see some of our fabulous lace stuff in person come on over! Bobbins, thread, shuttles, books, and everything that Kelli can fit in the car will be on display and ready to go home with you. We've really embraced lace and traveling to events this year so we hope you'll come on out and see us. She even has a box of bobbins, holders, pin bowls, and more from John Aebi!!


Oregon Flock and Fiber


Tina is back at Oregon Flock and Fiber this fall.  Mark your calendars and make your plans for October 15-16 at the Linn County Expo Center in Albany, OR.  Tina will have all of the wooly goodness on display along with books, notions, and so much more! Looking for a deal?  Make sure you shop our booth as there will be a special clearance corner.

Blanket-A-Long with Purly Shell Pirates!!


Heather and Danielle, the Purly Shell Pirates, asked if we wanted to host a Temperature Blanket-A-Long and in true BlackSheep fashion, we said yes and no. We are making blankets, but with a twist.

This is a VERY relaxed Crochet/Knit/Stitch/Tat-a-long that you can join at any time.  We have a Facebook group where we can chat and share inspiration.  Tina's Grandma's Flower Afghan pattern is free to participants and Kelli's BlackSheep Blanket-A-Long pattern is too.  We also have kits available in various colors, yarns, and palettes.

Plus, we decided it would be fun to have a stitch-a-long option too.  Tina is stitching a monthly square and you can find those kits here. Kelli is also tatting a temperature table runner and has a free pattern on our Knit/Crochet-a-long page. If this sounds like fun to you, you can join the Facebook Group here or find out more info here
