Never Enough Wool
APRIL SOCK THEME:
WOMAN'S SOCK--KNITTER'S CHOICE
AS LONG AS IT HAS SOME PATTERNING
Shown above is Eternal Spring by
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
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!
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.
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.
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!
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
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).
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.
