What's Up Doc?

Here at Knitique we've been unpacking the boxes of new merchandise that have been rolled through the doors by our very own Trip, one of the nicest UPS drivers around, and not so bad on the eyes also.
Lots of new books have been uncrated and we've all poured through them, bought a ton and have had to reorder many of them the next day.

Susan has been working hard on the classes and it's in the last stages of me adding the classes that I'm excited to teach. Make sure to check out the blog in the next few days to see all the fabulous "Skill Building" Classes we've got arranged for you.

We've got several class series tied to the books and we can't wait for you to join us. First Up Sock Lover's Club will be a little different next month. We are changing the look and purpose of the Club. Each session will be a knitalong where we've used a specific pattern, and a specific yarn to create a pair of one of a kind socks.

Here's what's being said about this self published book: The first release from Rustling Leaf Press, The Eclectic Sole is a collection of exciting and diverse sock patterns that will delight both new and experienced sock knitters with a little something for everyone. Styles range from lace to stranded colorwork to cables with an occasional touch of whimsy. Some socks feature unusual construction, others beautiful graphic elements. One pattern even comes with holes built in (no darning necessary)! Each chapter is beautifully illustrated with pictures of the socks, and an inkling of the inspiration behind the pattern. Detailed yarn information, including color recommendations and WPI information, make it easy to substitute yarns from your own stash so you'll be able to sit down and begin one of these lovely patterns right away.

Next month we will be using Flat Feet Yarn by Conjoined Creations which we just got a lovely big order or and we will be using the pattern, Hypnosis from Electic Sole. Susan's already working on her sample and I've added a couple of extra pictures so you can see the stitch definition.

You'll definitely want to check out the blog tomorrow or your mail box as we will be mailing a note to everybody about an exciting event happening this weekend on Friday and Saturday, After all we are turning 3.

Help Support the Kid's of our Community

The local Waldorf school is raffling off a hand knit blanket that the boys and girls of the 6th grade class worked on all year. The mom's of the class have carefully put it together and it is truly a masterpiece.

The cost of each ticket is $5.00 and is a tax write off as it's a donation. Give us a call at
916 714 7719 or drop in the shop today and enter into the drawing for blanket created with lots of love.
Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow night, Friday, is Knit and Nosh. Bring a dish to share and enjoy the fun, love and camaraderie of knitter's and crocheter's alike.
