August 17th, 2015 Falling into Fall!
SUMMER HOURS START MEMORIAL DAY:
Tuesday through Friday 10am-5:30pm and Saturday 10am-5pm. Closed Sunday & Monday.
Doesn’t seem possible that around here the school bus drivers are back on the road and most schools are back in session! Whether you’re back to packing lunch boxes for little ones, or just feeling the urge to stock up on school supplies (you KNOW you love them!), the fact of the matter is that as knitters and crocheters we’re turning our minds towards holiday gifts, bigger projects, and well, getting back to our routines!
If part of your routine involves sharpening up your knitting and crocheting skills or just striking out on some new projects, you’ll be happy to know our Fall 2015 Class Schedule is now ready for you to peruse and the registration is OPEN!
Don’t miss out, we’ve got some new things up our sleeves and some terrific new classes. Check out The Maenad Shawl (a triple header of skill building), Toy Knitting (SOMEONE you know needs a friendly giraffe!), Felted Gingerbread Holiday Ornaments(no calories in these!), and a rare appearance of the Wonderful Wallaby Hoodie Sweater(last class filled so fast we thought we’d offer it again). Did you miss the Intro to Brioche Knitting? It’s back too, with a great scarf project to get you hooked.
How about getting after that holiday gift list - EARLY?!?! Yes, Turkish Bed Socks are so fun to make you won’t stop at one pair, we’ve got some nifty techniques to make them even faster to knit through! Maybe a little lace is up your alley - have you been putting off understanding charts? Beginning Lace-The Ashton Shawl will boost your confidence and your lace IQ! As always, we’re happy to help you become a sock aficionado, try your hand at Socks on Circulars or Toe Up Socks and get aboard the sock train!
Did we forget to mention new yarns headed our way? The new colors of Rowan’s Fine Art, a most sumptuous fingering weight perfect for shawls and all sorts of accessories (why not socks?) are finally on our shelves. We’re working some magic with our friends at Dream in Color-right now we have a special edition of Jilly with Cashmere, a divine fingering weight beauty with 440 yards, it’s a yummy basket of special limited edition colors named for Broadway musicals like South Pacific, Hello Dolly, and, well, you get the idea. Come touch this stuff! Must-cast-on-immediately!!!!
Lots more new stuff in the works that we’ll be revealing over the next few months. Need ideas for the “next” in your knitting life? Stop in, check out our samples and see if a class or two might inspire you to get those needles and hooks in high gear! Happy knitting and pleasant crocheting to all!
See you around the big table (with all the fans on!),
