FREE CLASSES next week

Facile- Surprisingly Simple

FREE Class next week

Design number 2 to be put on Ravelry this week is Facile. Facile can be converted from a scarf into a cowl, or it makes a lovely scarf. Knit out of S. Charles, Sadé on a 9 needle. Sadé is a nice cotton blend with a little bit of sheen on the ends of this ribbon yarn. I love the way this yarn looks when knit.

Even more exciting is we are teaching this class for FREE next week at Knitique. We have three classes available. Tuesday, September 3rd 12-2 or 6-8 and Saturday, September 7th, 3-5. I can take up to 10 students in each class but expect to have them fill up quickly, so give us a call at 916.714.7719 to save your spot.

If you don't live locally, we can ship a kit to you or you can download the pattern on Ravelry.

New Designs from our Boutique

We've been hard at work this past week getting our designs up on Ravelry. We have so many more to put up but given how busy we've been at Knitique lately we will be adding our patterns daily to our Ravelry Store.

Presenting our newest Design, Fishnets

Fishnets, is a lightweight cowl, made with a yarn that is perfect for warmer days and soft, cool nights. The alpaca makes a beautiful halo, the linen gives it a crisp and firm hand and the wool provides stability and its own level of softness. As with any yarn with linen, the more you wash it the better it becomes. Our sample was washed 2 times before we wore it and all my customers were amazed at the difference in texture. It could also be made out of Firefly which is a linen rayon blend that will provide the needed drape and softness.
Be sure to check our store often as new patterns will be uploaded daily.

Who Dreams in Color?

It’s time to get yourself signed up for 6 more months of gorgeous yarn and fun patterns in  Dream in Color's Dream Club! This is our third year of participating, and we've had  many of you have been asking about when this year's club starts.

The shipments will go out the first week in September, October, November, December, January and February. The prices ranges from $35 – $45 per month (plus applicable tax and shipping), depending on the yarn base featured that month. Just a hint: September's yarn has cashmere in it. We've talked to Veronica about some of the new yarns they have coming up this year for the club, and you’re sure to love them! Plus, they seem to come up with  the most amazing colors especially for their Dream Club yarns. This is a great way to get some beautiful things knit up for gifts for the upcoming holiday season.

We don’t require payment ahead of time. We will email you or call you when the shipment is ready each month and we will take payment at that time. This signup is only for people who are committing to purchasing all six months of shipments.  If you’d like to sign up for six months of fun give us a call at 916.714.7719 or email us at

If you think you might just want a couple of the different months worth of yarn, wait until we put them up on the website each month. We’ll order some extra so that there is additional skeins available while they last.

Some of our favorite projects from last year are featured in the photo.

Shapely Tank and Tee Class

This Friday night I will be teaching the Shapely Tank or Tee pattern.  I've been wearing three sweaters this spring knit from this pattern and I get compliments all the time.  The biggest reason for all the compliments is they fit.  The curved shape at the bottom and the short rows make this sweater fit your body perfectly, so it will be figure flattering.  No matter the size of your girls, this sweater will fit you.  I wanted to offer this class so that all of you could have beautiful fitted sweaters that make you feel beautiful and get you lots of compliments.  Class starts this Friday August 9th from 6-8pm, and continues August 16th and 23rd from 6-8pm.  Give us a call or come in to sign up.  (916) 714-7719
