Back to Business as Usual?

In a recent Zoom meeting with other New England yarn shops, the host said, "In this challenging and heart-breaking time, the universe is challenging us to look at ourselves and ask how can we be better." Of course, this statement can be taken in many ways and reflected upon on so many levels. To us, it made us look at what we do, and has given us the opportunity to see how we can serve our customers better.

Currently, we are working behind the scenes to improve the online shopping experience for customers and installing a new point of sale program at the shop. We are redesigning our Heavenly Yarns website and newsletter, which are a work in progress. We are also researching online video platforms that can allow us to help you with your individual project or shopping experience, for those of you who cannot get into our brick and mortar shop.

We offer free shipping on a purchase of $40 or more. This is for orders placed over the phone or through our website until the end of June. (Use code LOVEMAINE in the discount code box at the checkout.) There is even an option on our website for curbside pickup too! We continue to offer curbside pickup with phone orders.

We are resuming our regular hours: Monday through Thursday 10 am-6 pm, Friday and Saturday 10 am-5 pm and Sundays 11 am-4 pm.

We can't let you know enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

The Odyssey Shawl

A few months ago, a customer came into our shop wearing the Odyssey Shawl by Joji Locatelli. It was so lovely that we wanted to make it too. This shawl is a free pattern from the designer as a thank you to her supporters.

We used Noro's Sonata, a dk weight blend of cotton, viscose, silk and nylon. It is incredibly soft with depth of color and texture. The combination of these fibers makes it a great choice for year-round use. Sonata is available on our website.

Don't know what colors to choose because you want it to be neutral enough to wear it with many outfits? The customer who came in to our shop was wearing the shawl knit it in a single colorway and it was beautiful. If you want to knit this pattern in a single colorway, you will need only two skeins, because our shawl weighed about 150 grams.

Help With Choosing Colors

A customer shared with us a website that can aid you in determining what colors to use when choosing multiple colors for a project.

How does this tool work? You easily upload one of your personal photos that contains colors you like, and with a click, the tool generates a color palette for you! The website is Canva.com. It has lots of options for graphics, but we linked the page that does this neat little trick.

If you like to knit Fair Isle or Icelandic style, another webpage, created by a Ravelry user, is a little more specific to yarn, letting you choose the number of colors and type of yarn you want to use.

Lovely, But Discontinued, Colorways of Lamb's Pride in Our Sale Section

As we add inventory to our shop's new point of sale system, we have decided not to add inventory that can not be reordered -- such as discontinued colors. You may want to check our sale section frequently over the next few weeks as we continue to work on the new system. You never know what you may find!

New to our sale section this week are these four colorways of Lamb's Pride Worsted. At the time of posting, two colorways have enough skeins available to make an adult sweater. Read more about them here.

Continued Safety Protocols at Our Shop

We are asking that all customers wear a face mask and sanitize their hands upon entering the shop with sanitizer provided at the door. Our shop is large enough to easily maintain a 6-foot distance between others with a 5-customer limit. With the nice weather finally arriving and the door open most of the time, there is good air flow too.

At this time, and until further notice, we will not be accepting returns (except for defective products). If you are unsure of the quantity of yarn you will need, we will happily reserve a skein or two for you for an extended period of time. We hope you understand that this has 100% to do with the safety of others.

Belfast Slowly Reopens

If you want to take a drive to Belfast to safely enjoy a view that is different from the last ten weeks or so, there are plenty of lovely walking opportunities while maintaining social distancing -- something most Belfast citizens seem to do quite well!

Our Shipping Policy

Even though our Web site is not designed with a shopping cart, we will happily ship anything to you.

At this time, we only ask for the exact cost of the shipping; there is no handling charge.

By the way, the man in the photo is our well-loved UPS deliveryman. He is always smiling and happy, even when hauling heavy boxes down the stairs. (He must be a secret wannabe knitter.)
