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.
YEAR! All right, we are a bit slow with our greetings. Kind
of like with our holiday knitting ... sometimes a little late, but
We have socks on the brain this year so before we talk about THE SOCK CHALLENGE, we will point out that we have received a few new sock yarns.
First off, we have gotten 6 new colours of Opal's "Winterspiele" (see below) which is a 75% wool, 25% polyamide worsted-weight sock yarn. If that doesn't suit, we have also gotten a restock of the EYB "Fair Isle" -- another 8ply (worsted) sock yarn. Did I mention that socks are our focus? Well, in that vein, we have Estelle "Sock Twins" (see below) and Schachenmayr's "Pairfect" which are both designed to give you a perfectly matched pair of sock-weight socks.Opal Winterspiele

What is the
SOCK CHALLENGE? It is a monthly challenge for our knitters...each
month on the 20th, we will release the theme for the month (Example:
January is 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).
In Barb's knitting bag this month, we find a dk weight sweater in progress, a few hats and, of course, socks. In Carol's bag, we find two sweaters, socks hats and mittens. Apparently both ladies are looking for extra warmth this month!
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.
January -- Gloves! Always wanted the challenge of knitting gloves but never had the nerve to try? We have your back! January will see us teaching the fine art of knitted gloves using worsted weight wool (or yarn) and either double-points or circulars for magic loops. Class begins on January 8. Class materials will cost approximately $18 and the class fee is $25.
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 -- Summer Tee-Top! 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) and 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.
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.
