Never Enough Wool
FEBRUARY SOCK THEME: LACE
Pattern is Water Cycle Socks, found on Ravelry. Suitable for the adventurous knitter. Many other lace patterns can be found.
certainly started with interesting weather. We even stayed home
one day due to icy roads and freezing rain predictions.
Fortunately, we both had enough wool and needles to keep ourselves
happily occupied. However, we are both glad to be back at the shop today.
What exciting things have we planned for February? There have been arrivals of new yarns and wool -- from KFI Luxury Collection there is Indulgence Merino. This is a self-patterning merino sock yarn in a DK-weight. All 8 colours have arrived and the ladies are in love.
Another new arrival is Whirligig from Cascade Yarns.
This is a 200g ball of squishy tonal delight -- merino/nylon/acrylic
blended into a fabulous arrangement. One ball is enough to make a
nice sized scarf or shawl, or a baby blanket, or ... well, the
possibilities are endless. There are four colours, so the
possibilities just multiplied!
The third new arrival is from Universal Yarns. Bamboo Pop
has auditioned for a place on the shelves and it has arrived.
Currently displayed are 12 colours, with room for more. This yarn
is a bamboo/cotton blend in a generous 100g ball. Carol has test
knit and worn a little summer top and loves it. Don’t be shy --
come in and take a look and encourage us to order more colours.
are in month Two of our 2019 Sock Challenge. We are thrilled to
have announced a winner for January -- the prize was a ball of
beautiful sock yarn from the store and a project bag generously
donated by Estelle Yarns. The theme for February is LACE.
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).
Barb's knitting bag this month, we find the Nantucket Pullover
(top-down) and a baby blanket in King Cole Curiosity and just maybe an
Alaska Hat. In Carol's bag, we
find an "Ebba", a design from Drops Designs being knit in Berroco Aero
(a test-knit), a pair of gloves and a toddler sweater. (Want to
bet that there are socks being knit in secret at home?)
Happy Knitting and Crocheting!
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
note that if you are
not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome
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
Crochet-Along - Have you fallen in love with Carol's Lilliana? Barb is still crocheting along on her version, and it is beautiful. Several ladies are also working along with her, and we can honestly say that there is not a single colourway we don't love. Friday's are designated as "Crochet Day", so don't be shy.
February -- Cables! Interested in learning how to cable? This is the class for you. We will be knitting a lovely cabled cowl (see picture below), just in time to perk up your late winter wardrobe. Class fee is $25 and materials cost is approximately $15-30. Class will begin February 5.
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 -- Stay tuned. We are carefully selecting something delightful for your spring knitting!
