In-house Happenings

October Calendar

Welcome to the LYS News page! I wanted to have a place where we can go to see all the shop news at any given time. You know, kinda like a bulletin board for classes, craft-alongs, new products, and sales.

So here it is! Everything you need to know about what’s going on inside our little yarn cave will be on this page. If you’re wondering when the next class is or what new yarns we’ve gotten in, look no further. I’m going to try to keep this whole page formatted into simple blocks so you can easily see each thing without having to scroll and scroll through walls of text. If ever you need clarification on anything, or the information provided didn’t answer your question, feel free to hit the “talk to me!” tab and shoot me a note ♥


Check back near the end of October for a super SCARY sale!



You excited? I’m excited! Lauren has done it again, hand-dying us some absolutely amazing yarn. We’ve got sock, Merino singles, and her brand new Slub. Slub is listed as fingering weight, but can be worked up just about any way you want it, as the slubby texture makes it super forgiving as far as gauge. I can’t wait to make something out of this ♥

We have so many new necklace kits that just came in from Darn Good Yarns! If you’re looking for a great holiday gift, come check them out. We’ve got doves, elephants, and Trees of Life, all with the most gorgeous beads and everything you need to make them.
And hey, if you’re just gifting yourself, I won’t tell a soul 😉

Finally, the big shipment of Berroco Providence has arrived!
This DK weight tweed yarn is scrumptious: with merino, baby alpaca, AND silk! At 191 yards per ball, this yarn was just made for a gorgeous colorwork cowl or hat.
I hope this yarn will be a staple in our shop, and I’m already picking out the next colors I want to bring in. Come on in and feel this stuff, then grab a ball and see what you can whip up! (Remember, I am always happy to help you find the perfect pattern, knit or crochet, for any yarn ♥)


Ravelry in-store pattern sales

Finally, after waiting over a month for some tech issues to be sorted out, Rows & Roses is now approved for Ravelry’s in-store pattern sales! That means you can now purchase thousands of Ravelry patterns right here in the shop. You won’t pay a penny extra for this service, and I can print the pattern out for you as well as have it emailed to you AND added to your Ravelry library! What an awesome way to shop local while also supporting our indie designers ♥

LYS Craft-alongs


Universal Yarn has a fun Mystery Knitalong underway for the whole month of October. The Bella Cash MKAL is a great way to have some fun and make a pair of drool-worthy socks in a decadent blend of Merino, Cashmere, and nylon.
Week 1 is for picking your colors.
Week 2 is the cuff.
Week 3 is all about the colorwork!
Week 4 is here and we’re making a super textured foot.

I know some of us prefer to crochet rather than knit (we all have our favorite, right?) so I’m hosting a Crochet-along in the R&R Ravelry group for my dishcloth pattern, Reflect.
I wrote this pattern for Cotlin Reflections, to match my Blue Willow dishes. In the CAL, however, we’re using any yarn we want! I’ve made one already, and used Bamboo Pop. This is going to be the greatest spa cloth EVER! Please come join us.

All Rows & Roses classes come with everything you need. From spindles and fiber for the spinning classes, to hooks, yarn, and pattern for the crocheting classes, we’ve got you covered. Just bring your sweet self, and a can-do attitude.

The workshops, however, are specifically for a project. Enwrapped is set to be the October kit of the month (whenever the yarn finally gets here…) so you will need to purchase your kit and bring it with you.
