We are excited to announce a new friendly competition. We will choose a theme every quarter and anyone who wants to participate will bring a finished project of your choosing (must fit theme) and leave at the store for 2 weeks for judging by our customers. You get to display your work and may have a chance to win a prize. The project can be knit, crochet or woven but must be made with one of our current yarns and have a pattern available. We can't wait to see what you come up with. See below for information on the first event.
The first theme is shawls and wraps! Bring your finished projects to the store June 21st-28th. Judging will begin June 28th and winners will be announced July 12th at a fashion show event. We can't wait to see all your creations!
*Pictured above, Dangling Conversation, Magic Lanterns, Take it and All and Self-Fringing shawls all available on Ravelry.

Announcing the Third Annual 4-day Knitalong by Marie Green/Olive Knits. Piney Creek will once again be participating in this wildly popular 4-day challenge. Here are the details and timelines we are able to share so far. We will share all information as it becomes available. The designer is recommending a super-wash wool to help with drape and estimated growth after blocking. The pattern is flexible and can be knit with a wide range of fibers keeping in mind you may need to knit additional length if using a non-super wash fiber. The sizing is running to fit bust sizes from 32” to 52” with approximately 6 inches of ease. You will not need to round up to get a comfortable fit and if you want a closer fit, just drop down a size. The following are yarns we are recommending for this project. We are offering a 15% discount on any yarns pre-ordered and pre-paid by the dates listed. We will have a chart in store to determine yardage, size and number of skeins needed for each of these yarns.
