We want to see your projects and share them with our community so we can all inspire (enable) each other. You may email pictures of your completed project to email@example.com along with the name of the pattern and the yarn used or bring your project to the shop and we will photograph it for you!
Normally we would be closed Wednesday. But tomorrow is special - we will be open from 1-4pm just for all those Stitches travelers coming into the area. Stop by and see us while you are here. And hey join us for Friday Night Knitting from 5-7 too.
I have put a discussion thread on our Ravelry group where you can post your knitting, crochet or weaving questions and I will do my best to answer them. I will check it most days. Unlike on the phone you could even post a picture and I could see the problem up close to help you.
Come make an Easter Bunny out of a knitted square! Saturday (I know it is just before Easter but you can get it done by then, I promise). Knit a square at least 6" big in either stockinette of garter stitch and bring it, a tapestry needle, knitting needles and some stuffing to class on Saturday April 4th at 10:30am and we'll make bunnies! Free Class.
We know that lots of folks shop the internet for better prices and we want you back. The money you spend in a locally owned business benefits everyone in the community because a lot of that money goes back into the community. Local businesses of all sorts need folks to shop local or they won't be there anymore. So here's the deal. Starting this week, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays we will meet whatever internet shop's price on the yarn you are wanting for your project. This is good on any in stock yarn we have that you find an exact match for on line.
has arrived. Reywa is the Tibetan word for hope and that is what they do. The profits go towards funding education for Tibetan children. They are a fair trade company. Their yarns are heavenly. We now have Bloom - a lace weight 50% yak/50% silk yarn that feels so wonderful. I am hurrying to finish two other shawls so I can started on something in this.
is Elizabeth Zimmermann's Moccasin Socks in Knitting Around, and also in the Knitter's Almanac (Nov). Knitting Around has it in worsted weight yarn so I am picking a nice washable something wool and will use raggi on the bottoms I think. The KAL starts on Saturday and we'll meet at 10am. I will try to have one of my socks to the point of working the bottom so I can show how that goes (but no guarantees). The KAL is free so long as you are using store yarns. No need to sign up in advance, just show up.
Happy New Year! (And yes it's Wednesday, we're closed today) See y'all Friday and Saturday..
