Never Enough Wool

NEWSLETTER

January 2018


Welcome to 2018!  The year certainly has started with bone-chilling cold, which makes us even more thankful for our warm knitted and crocheted woolies.  Currently we are trying to determine if there is a limit to how many different woolies one can wear at a time.  After all, we all have feet, necks, bodies, arms, hands, …


We have started the new year off by receiving some lovely, much-anticipated new wool.  Our first introduction is from Katia, and is named Earth.  This is a lovely DK-weight, superwash wool & polyester blend.  But wait – what makes this wool so special is that the polyester is actually recycled water bottles!





Next up, we have some wonderful new colours of the Amitola Grande by Louisa Harding. This wool/silk blend calls out to be knit or crocheted into warm sweaters, hats, mittens…well, you get the idea!






Speaking of wool/silk blends, how about Tennen by Noro.  This worsted weight lovely has 250 m of wool/silk and alpaca.  Best of all - even though it's from Noro, the hand of this wool is fabulous.  Check out the Inspira Cowl to see the full beauty of this yarn.






Berroco has sent us three – THREE – beautiful new colours of Nebula.  This is a long colour changing wool, perfect for shawls and scarves.   We also got two new colours of Folio, and both of them play well with the Nebula.  It’s so difficult to not take everything home with us!





Finally, at long last, we have received shipment of the new Lykke needles.  We now have sets of straight needles, interchangeable circular, and double-point needles, as well as a fairly complete selection of individual straight and circular needles.  Lykke needles are made from birch, with lovely pointy tips.  

 


What’s in our knitting bags?  Carol is very close to finishing a summer t-shirt from Schachenmayr Batiko Sun, along with a Nymphaea shawl.  Barb is working on two Linen Stitch scarves, a sweater for her mother, and the Katia Degradé socks.



Happy knitting and crocheting!


 Classes:

We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest possible rates.  In order to do so, we ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop.  In addition, we offer class discounts to our students.  Please note that if you are not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome to continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.  

You must register for your class before class time.  Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm.  Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays.   Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing. 

Crochet-Along -  Practice a multitude of crochet stitches by working the Lilliana crocheted afghan.  This is a free pattern, with sections released on a weekly basis. 

Knit-ALong –  Always wanted to learn lace knitting, but were too nervous to go it alone?  We have the answer.  Michelle Hunter has produced Building Blocks:  Lace.  The end project is a lovely lace scarf, featuring 12 different lace techniques.  We will begin in February ….Cost:  $20 for the book and estimated materials cost $50 to $100.

January – Linen Stitch Scarf – Wondering what to do with all those left-over bits from your sock projects?  We have the perfect answer - this linen stitch scarf.  Classes start January 9 and continue through the month, for both afternoons and evenings.  Cost:  $25 plus materials (if needed).

February – Socks - Top Down -  Learn to knit socks, starting at the cuff and progressing towards the toes.  Socks are a great travel project, perfect for doctor’s offices, etc.  Class starts on February 6 and continue through the month.  Cost:  $25 plus estimated materials cost of $25.

March - Stay Tuned!

Sit ‘n Stitch:  Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3.  Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter.  Everyone is welcome!  

Saturday Stitching:  Every Saturday, from 2 until 4.  What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?
