  APRIL SOCK THEME:
WOMAN'S SOCK--KNITTER'S CHOICE
AS LONG AS IT HAS SOME PATTERNING


April Sock

March 2019


March break!  March madness!  St. Patrick's day... Hoping that all these things will usher in Spring!  In the meantime, perseverance and lots of colourful knitting are the key to survival (in our humble opinion!).


With that said, we have welcomed a few new yarns for those who need a change from wool, wool and more wool.  Firstly, we have Sirdar's No 1 Aran Stonewashed.   It is 180m of Acrylic/Nylon softness with a pretty stonewash effect.  We are busily combing through patterns for this one!


Aran Stonewashed


From the wonderful folks at Juniper Moon, we have just received 10 fabulous colours of Cumulus.  This yarn is 230m of brushed cotton excellence that just screams baby blankets or sweaters or t-shirts... really, anything soft and breathable next to your skin....

Month Three of our 2019 Sock Challenge allows us to introduce (or re-introduce) our intrepid sock knitters to the fabulous designs of Wendy Johnson.  Even if you don't ordinarily knit socks, Wendy's designs are sure to turn your heads.  February's Sock Challenge winner was Kathy McCord who will be receiving some fancy sock patterns as the prize.  Congratulations!


For those who do not know, the SOCK CHALLENGE is a monthly challenge for our knitters...each month on the 20th, we will release the theme for the month (Example: January was Ribbed Socks).  If you knit a pair of socks that fit a living breathing person by the end of said month, we will enter your name into a prize draw.  If you enter in all 12 months, we will enter your name into a grand prize draw.  Good luck and happy knitting (by the way, crochet socks are also acceptable as long as the pattern fits the theme of the month).


The Knitter's Frolic is once again being held at the Japanese Cultural Centre, just off the DVP, on Saturday April 27.  There are 50 vendors currently listed, with plenty of time for more to be added!  Doug will be running the store so that Barb and Carol may conduct Market Research on the day.  Folks are welcome to drop by and knit, but knitting help will be scarce.


In Barb's knitting bag this month, we find the Laboratory Pullover in a dark blue Berroco Ultra Wool, the inevitable socks and a new to the store surprise project!  In Carol's bag, we find socks (of course), a beautiful summer top, and a winter shawl.  (Yes, Carol might be seasonally confused!)


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.


March  --  Nantucket Top Down Pullover.  Looking ahead to spring, we are planning a lovely spring/summer top for this month's class.  It will require DK-weight yarn (think Ultra Pima cotton or Unity by Fibra Natura or Bamboo Pop) and will be lots of fun to make.  (If you would like a sneak peek, here's the link:  https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/nantucket-top-down-pullover-110).  Class cost is $25, which will include the pattern.  Materials cost will be approximately $40-50, depending on choice of fibre.


April --  Alaska Hat -- Barb's current obsession has created lots of interest in Fair Isle knitting, so we decided that this hat would be a perfect introduction to this type of knitting.  Class will start April 2 and run for consecutive Tuesdays until the end of the month.  Cost:  $25 plus materials -- 2 skeins of sock yarn!


May  --  Intarsia  --  We will be creating a pillow, using the intarsia technique.  Want a sneak peek?  Check this out:  https://knittingfever.com/design/10605.  May we suggest Noro Kureopatora for the heart emblem and a wonderful solid background?  Cost is $25 plus materials ($20-30).



Continuing Events:

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?  

Knitting Night:  Every Thursday, from 7 until 9.  Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed.  There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
