April Class Schedule

Wow what great weather we have been getting this past week. Makes us all down here at the knit shop ready to knit some new cotton tops and dresses to add into our wardrobe. With this great weather comes another month of great classes to enjoy!

We have finished the class schedule and it is available to view on the website as well as here in the shop. There are a lot of great projects on the list this month. For all of our shawl lovers the spring Clapotis is back as well as Saroyan, which would be beautiful out of a light weight cotton yarn. The spring Clapotis can be knitted with only one skein of Blue Heron rayon metallic. There are so many beautiful color choices!

We hope this little preview has enticed the inner knitter in everyone to come in and check these class out in person. We ask that you sign up for the class ahead of time as spaces fill up quickly. (916) 714- 7719.

Baby Yarns Galore!

Spring is in the air and as such the baby yarns are coming back into the boutique just in time for any Easter celebrations coming in the next month. We have some fabulous Cascade yarns in both dk and worsted weight. The dk yarns are gorgeous in shades of orange, or blue or purple among others. Here is an example of one of the shades of purple knitted into a child's sweater.

This is a great yarn also to make blankets and dresses as well. Come in and ask us all about this great yarn and some patterns to go with it.

Our worsted yarns are really soft and great too! The solid colors are fabulous and the best part is the great book that came with these yarns too. Come on in and ask us all about the NEW Cascade baby yarns. (916) 714- 7719.

Rasta Hat


Today we received some really cute hat kits from Knit One Crochet Too. These are fabulous quick knits for yourself or the teenager in your life. Each kit has one skein of Wrapunzel and one skein of Tartlette and comes in a variety of colors. The directions for this hat can be found in knitting and crochet versions which makes this a very universal project. Come in and ask us about this great quick and easy project. If you don't live locally give us a call and we can send one to your house, (916) 714- 7719.

EZ Fair Isle Class

This is a great first fair isle project because you learn the technique while carrying two yarns and it looks like twenty!! This project is also great because a hat is not too big for a first project and the technique is great to apply to the sweater you've always wanted to tackle.

This is a one session class that starts this Saturday March 19th at 1pm till 4. It is a $30 class plus any supplies that you will need. Both of these yarns are variegated and in very opposite colorways which makes the pattern pop out very nicely.

There is prework for the class, so be sure to come in, pick your colors and complete your very easy homework.

Remember to always call ahead to reserve your spot (916) 714- 7719.

FREE Washcloth class this Saturday

This month's free washcloth class is a two row zig zag stripe pattern using four or five different colored yarns. Variegated yarns work really well for this pattern as well as solids. We have stocked up on the soft cotton in some great pastel colors for the coming spring season and Easter.

This is a great pattern to turn into a scarf or even a great baby blanket. The class is this Saturday March 19th from 4 to 6pm. Please call ahead and reserve a space to make sure we have enough seats. (916) 714- 7719.

Wee Bit of Irish

This month's Limited Edition yarn has arrived. It's a glorious array of greens. Perfect for the luck of the Irish. I've written the most gorgeous scarf pattern called Green Leaves. One skein of the worsted weight Cashmere blend yarn will do about a 60 inch scarf. The beauty of this scarf, it's reversible AND done on US 10 needles. Be sure to come in while we have some. Once our supply is done, we can't get any more.

Call the Boutique and we can ship to you the yarn and pattern. 916.714.7719 or email us at
