Never Enough Wool
arrived, bringing grey skies and holiday stress. Not to worry --
we can help reduce your stress levels in several ways. First,
every Tuesday and Thursday evening are "sit and stitch" nights -- bring
your project, we've got the tea. Second, we have gift ideas so
that you can drop a hint to your family so that your fondest knitting
and crocheting wishes can come true. Third, we have suggestions
for quick projects that can be done in the time left before *THAT*
Many thanks to Jean-Marie for hosting our latest Knitter's and Crocheter's Pot Luck. It was held on Sunday November 25th at her house. Jean-Marie and her husband have renovated their 130-year-old house into a gracious home and it was a delight to be visiting there. The food was delicious, the conversation delightful and the knitting time enjoyable. One of our first-time sock knitters turned her very first heel that afternoon!
SOCK CHALLENGE looks to be a very exciting project. The rules are
fairly simple -- we will release the theme for the upcoming month on
the 20th of the current month (so Dec. 20 for January 2019; Jan. 20 for
February 2019, etc.). You will have 10 days to locate a pattern
you wish to make that fits within the theme we have announced.
(The socks MUST fit a living, breathing person.) If you cannot
find your own pattern, we can offer suggestions (of course!).
Everyone who completes a pair of socks in the designated month and
shows us either the finished socks or a picture will be entered into a
drawing for a monthly prize. Folks who complete a pair of socks
in each month will be entered into a grand prize drawing in January
2020. Simple? You may learn the theme of the upcoming month
New arrivals at the shop have included kits from Fibra Natura and Universal Yarns. These projects include shawls, cowls, Christmas stockings and hats. We also received the Estelle Sock Twins.
This wool put-up means you will get an identical pair of socks, without
all the winding and angst previously required to obtain the same
result. And the colours are spectacular.
Speaking of socks, have we mentioned that we got a restock of the Fair Isle from EYB. This is a worsted weight sock yarn and self-patterning to boot. We also have Queensland Collection Perth if you are looking for a more standard weight sock yarn.
In order that we may enjoy time with our respective families over the holiday season, the shop will be CLOSED Dec. 25 & 26 and again on Jan. 1. All other days we will have our normal hours and activities.
are we working on these days?
Barb continues knitting diligently on her A Canadian Afghan and ever-present socks.
She even has a dedicated sock knitting project bag! Carol has
a beautiful lace shawl on needles at home (it's closet knitting), socks
and preparing to cast on a vest. What are you working on?
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.
December -- Still working on those holiday gifts? Need to escape the hub-bub at the mall? Drop by on Tuesday evening. There is no scheduled class, so take the opportunity to knit or crochet those last-minute gifts!
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 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, just in time to perk up your
late winter wardrobe. Class fee is $25 and materials cost is
