Feeling Stitchy!

Hello Hillians!
 
Always wanted to learn how to knit or crochet? Now is time! Already know how knit but you want to try out crocheting? Easy, we can help!  Tired of knitting the same scarf pattern over and over again?  Well, then it’s time to learn how to knit in the round! Let’s get those needles and hooks going!! 

While we both have sad faces for the close of summer we are excited for fall and all that it brings in the world of scarves, hats, gloves, mittens, and cozy sweaters. Check out the new fall yarn that has just arrived and keep your eyes open to more that is headed our way!!

Cheers to our favorite time of year,
Erica and Jessica
