Mother and daughter team Barbara and Sheri opened shop on July 4, 2006 after an introductory knitting class inspired entrepreneurial plans instead of retiring to the center of the earth. During their one- to one-and-a-half hour basics class, curious knitters will be introduced to the basic ins and outs of needles and yarn. Students will then wield their newfound skills to knit stitches and begin a scarf, while more advanced yarn-smiths can construct octo-armed tarantula sweaters or woolly models of hydrogen atoms. Classes are offered on Wednesdays at the Fayetteville location and Tuesday–Friday at the Whiteville location. Before or after class, peruse the store's extensive inventory, which includes traditional wool and organic cotton yarns, as well as the more exotic spinnings made from bamboo, soybean, and milk.
