We help women in Uruguay find meaningful work without leaving their rural homes. We help a family in New Hampshire maintain a mill, a tradition spanning hundreds of years. We help restore the Patagonia Grasslands by encouraging sustainable farming.Every yarn we stock makes a positive impact.
"I have done the Mystery KAL for the last 5-6 years. I always look forward to the next one. Most of them were patterns that I would never have attempted. I have learned so many new techniques, most importantly how to read my knitting, which has given me much more confidence.” - a mystery lover
Our annual Mystery Knitalong is possibly our most popular event of the year. Last summer, almost 200 people across the country participated in our adventure.
The hardest part of the Mystery KAL has always been choosing yarn since you don’t know what you are making. To make it easier, we are offering kits.
2022 Mystery Kit Includes:
- One full skein of Wonderland Mad Hatter
- Five Mini skeins of Mad Hatter
- Four emails sent weekly in June, including clues and tutorials for the mystery project
- Mystery pattern
- Needles needed for the project

We have three color options:
- Warm tones for those that love the sun, campfires, and maple leaves in the fall
- Cool tones for those that prefer rocky shores, waterfalls, and snow-covered mountain tops
- Surprise Me (pictured in black and white but not actually black and white) for those that love all the colors and prefer a one-of-a-kind option
Knitalong Starts on June 2
The first clue will be sent out on Thursday, June 2 via email. The clues include pictures and tutorials as needed, but if you need additional help, you can join our Thursday Sit&Knit at 7:30PM Central TIme.
