Never Enough Wool

NEWSLETTER

June 2018


End of school.  Beginning of "true" summer.  Whichever way you would like to think of it; we have arrived!!!  (Well, almost.)  At the shop we are preparing to start some very  exciting new projects and of course, we are working to get the old ones finished.


With all that said, we have gotten in a few pretties for everyone to see. First, we have the Ultra Wool by Berroco.  It is a 100% wool, double knitting weight yarn that is machine washable.  10 new colours with which to play.  (Ask Barb what she has started.)






 Next up, we have a baby blanket kit by Feza Yarns.  800m of a dk weight, cotton viscose will delight you as you knit up the easy baby blanket.  Or you could do a summer top.... the ideas are endless!






Speaking of summer pretties, have you SEEN the Tutti Frutti from Regia?  We have three beautiful colourways, in (what else?) fruity colours.  The beauty of this yarn lies in both its fabulous colours as well as content -- 72% cotton, 18% polyamide for stretch and 10% polyester.





We have enjoyed perusing the new knitting magazines, adding to our queue.  Barb has even been swatching for projects, while Carol is still dithering about what colours and yarn.  Be sure to ask what has tempted us into casting on!


And speaking of casting on...have you seen the booklet A Canadian Afghan, eh?  This is an afghan designed to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday.  We will be leading a knit-along, beginning in July.  This is a perfect summer project -- it is knit in squares which will be seamed together at the end, before the border is applied.  Talk about portable!


What's in our project bags right now?  In addition to swatching for new projects, Barb is working her Lilliana afghan and a lace scarf.  Carol has a pair of mittens and several pairs of socks underway.


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-AlongHave you fallen in love with Carol's Lilliana?  Would you like to create your very own?  Join us on Fridays, beginning April 6, and work along with Barb as she leads this crochet-along.

Knit-ALong –  A Canadian Afghan Eh! -- As a fitting end to Canada's 150th birthday year, we have decided to knit this beautiful afghan.  Constructed as blocks which are later sewn together and then encircled with a maple leaf border, this is the perfect "cottage" blanket.  It will require 4600m of worsted weight yarn.  If you need to, order soon so that it will be ready to start on the first Tuesday of July!


June - Butterfly/Papillon Shawl - Looking for a stunning shawl to throw around your shoulders?  This is the one for you!  It features short rows and two colours of wool -- but only one colour at a time.  Starting June 5.  Cost:  $25 plus materials of approximately $60.


July - Catch your breath and enjoy the summer!  We don't officially teach a class in July, but our class times remain available for our crafters to finish up projects and ask questions.


August - Stay tuned for the next invigorating idea!
