Spring Has Sprung!

Although it might not look like it outside the shop (snow piles, ice, a wind-shredded sign), the calendar says it spring, so that’s what you’ll find here at HYS–plenty of new spring yarns to tempt you and lots of color to brighten your days. Come in and see what’s new, sign up for a class, check out our sale yarns, or just enjoy knitting/crocheting with other crafters.
