Welcome to Cindy's Northern Crafts Web Pages!
It's where dreams come true with designs and footprints get left the road of life! Home page:  Tunnel of Trees & Petoskey Stone Sock Yarn, Fall Knitting Workshop, Petoskey Pointy Sticks Ravelry Group and Knit MI!




                          IT'S COMING SOON..."NORTHERN LIGHTS"!




Introducing to you our "Tunnel of Trees" Sock Yarn! 463 yards of 75% merino and 25% nylon, in fall colors. Kayanna captured the colors of the birch trees with her tonal grays and dark browns. She unfurled the brown trunks of the other northern trees that stand tall baring the orange, golden, red, evengreen, blue spruce and plum colors of the leaves. I have attached the picture we based the fall colors off of. We hope you enjoy and can feel the cool crisp air this morning in northern Michigan as we display the beauty of autumn! The sock color is different, it is exclusive, and it is Cindy’s “Northern” Crafts!

First shipment has arrived. Please call to get on waiting list. (231) 439-9221.
