Free Holiday Classes

As promised we've got some great EASY projects that we will be teaching for FREE this next week. Bring a friend and spend some quality time knitting something just for you or for someone special. You can even get a head start on your Christmas or Birthday giving for next year.

One Night Stand

This beautiful scarf is made with a Chunky Alpaca. They call for only 1 skein of Chunky Alpaca, but being a girl with shall we say "Big Girls" I can't have a scarf end resting on my "Girls" so I'm calling this the Two Night Stand. You need 2 skeins of Baby Alpaca Chunky and a size 10 needle. This pattern is nice because they give you both the written directions for the lace work as well as a chart for those who love chart reading.

This Class will be offered on

Saturday: December 26th from 10-12 and 4-6pm
Tuesday: December 29th from 2-4pm

and Thursday: December 31st from 10-12pm

the second class we will be offering is a gorgeous Spiral Rib Hat

This hat is a nice spiral design which is easy to knit with the help of two markers. What I love about the pattern is it works with any yarn. They've done all the math and you just knit a swatch plug in the numbers and voila you've got a pattern. We are making this
out of a thick thin yarn which give both visual and textural interest.

We will be offering this class:

Saturday, December 26 1-3pm
Tuesday, December 29 4-6pm

and Thursday, December 31 1-3pm

Time's Running Out

for you to finish your Christmas Knitting. Lucky for you all we will be open Wednesday, December 23rd until 8pm and Thursday, Christmas Eve from 1030-4pm. So if you have any last minute items to knit, we've got projects that will fit your time frame. If you need a little bit of help to finish the projects you have on the needle, come on in and one of our fabulously experienced employees would love to help you.

We hope you have a Happy Holiday Season! Happy Knitting in the New Year!
