New Classes begin October 21
We had so much fun during our first 'learn to knit socks' session that we are offering it again. We've extended it to four two-hour sessions, every other Monday starting Oct. 21. Jeffi Farquharson will lead the classes, which run from 6-8p.m.
We are also presenting a 'learn to knit a top-down sweater' class in conjunction with our fall knit-along. The four two-hour classes will begin October 28, and will run every other Monday from 6-8 pm. We've chosen the lovely Il grande favoritosweater, which is knit up in a chunky-weight wool, as our KAL. You don't need to take part in the class to do the KAL -- the class is designed for those who want a bit more help or are embarking on their first-ever sweater.
Jeffi will be continuing with the 'learn to crochet' and 'learn to knit' classes. The crochet basics class is held on Thursday evenings, beginning Oct. 24, and the knit basics begins Oct. 26. These sessions are designed for beginners and those who want to improve their skills.
For all classes, we ask that you purchase materials at the store, and you will receive a 15% discount.
For more details about any of these classes and to register, please stop in at the store or call 519-371-4311. Classes are limited to seven students, and we will need at least three participants per class.
We've decided on a Knit-a-long! Il grande favorito by Isabell Kraemer is a simple but lovely top-down seamless sweater knit in a chunky weight yarn. We have a lot of selection in the store, with a variety of price ranges. You can do it in Cascade Superwash 128, Llama Chunky by Estelle, Sugar Bush Canoe, Paytons Shetland Chunky, or Hayfield from Sirdar. The KAL will officially start Oct. 28, and you'll be able to follow along and post questions and photos on our Ravelry and Facebook pages.
Happy Day! We are now stocking yarns by Rhichard Devriez
We have the super-popular Rhichard Devrieze 'Raising the Bar' shawl kits in the store, along with his wonderful fingering and worsted-weight hand dyed yarn. The shawl kits have three full skeins and one mini-skein of Peppino, a 100% superwash merino, along with some funky cocktail accessories. To celebrate our new collaboration with Rhichard, he has generously given us 14 skeins of Fynn, a worsted-weight yarn, in the Ashley Gee colourway. Oh, the wonders you can make with this! When you buy any Rhichard Devrieze yarn, you'll be entered into a draw for this amazing basket of yarn. The draw will be made on October 31. Win, Win. Or is that Cin, Cin?
