Kid's Owl Vest

Looking for a quick project? Check out this Owl Vest. It's knit mostly in the round and only takes 2 skeins of Cascade Sierra. There are some simple cables, fine for a first cable project if you have never tried it before!

The February Baby Sweater

I just finished knitting a February Baby Sweater for the shop. For those of you who don't know, this is an Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern from the Knitter's Almanac and in typical EZ fashion was very simple construction. The sweater is meant to be done on two needles with a seam up both sleeves so if you don't like knitting in the round you can do it that way. On the other hand, if you would rather avoid the seaming you can pick up stitches and knit the sleeves in the round. Either way, knitted with less than two skeins of Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool this sweater makes a very inexpensive and elegant baby gift for any baby on your list.

S. Limestone Construction Updates

For those of you who don't know, and even for those who do, S. Limestone St will be undergoing some major construction between the Avenue of Champions and Vine St over the course of the next year starting on July 22. The street will be open to one lane of traffic at certain points in the process, but there won't be any street parking in the front so to better help you get to us below are instructions for accessing us during the first phase of the construction. We will post updates as we know them. Thank you for your support during this difficult time, it really means a lot to us.

Update: The intersection at S. Limestone and the Avenue of Champions is now open so if you are coming from Nicholasville Rd or Euclid you can take Winslow to Jersey St.

North Lexington (including I-64 & I-75): Take Broadway or Upper St, turn left on Pine St (immediately after Maxwell), right on Jersey St and our parking lot is on the left side immediately after the McDonald's.

South Lexington: Take Broadway, turn right on Pine St, right on Jersey St and our parking lot is on the left side immediately after the McDonald's.

East Lexington: Take Main or High Street, turn left onto S. Upper, left on Pine St (immediately after Maxwell), right on Jersey St and our parking lot is on the left side immediately after the McDonald's.

West Lexington: Take Vine St, turn right onto S. Upper, left on Pine St (immediately after Maxwell), right on Jersey St and our parking lot is on the left side immediately after the McDonald's.

Additional Parking: In addition to our parking lot, there are metered spaces on Pine and Jersey St. and on the weekends the UK Jersey St lot is open to the public.

This is the map of the construction area (in red) and the official detour in yellow. For most of the construction you will be able to take S. Lime to the Ave of Champions, turn left and then take a right on Jersey St which will take you to our parking lot.

For the first month of this project the intersection at Ave of Champions will be closed. For this time period you will have to access Jersey St from the West which means via Pine or Maxwell which can both be accessed via Upper and Broadway.


The city has also put together a site complete with business and parking maps.
