Never Enough Wool
Summer is here, with a vengeance. The warm (OK, hot!) weather has us thinking about lots of things – including, oddly enough, winter knits. After all, THAT holiday is coming, and quickly.
We have brought in some new yarns, just to keep you interested. First, there’s the Top Rainbow from Katia. This is a cotton/acrylic blended worsted weight yarn, incorporating one long colour change throughout the 800m length. (This is a big brother to the Spring Rainbow we brought in earlier in the year.) It comes with a free pattern in both crochet and knit, and of course we can come up with some additional ideas if necessary.
For our sock knitters, a lovely mother-daughter duo found us and introduced us to their hand-dyed sock yarns. They call themselves Lizzie-Anne Yarns, and their colour sensibility is amazing. Right now we are carrying an assortment of sock sets – one colour for the heels and toes and another colour for the basic sock. Please note – this amounts to 480m of sock yarn, which is enough for plenty long socks or feet!
We also have brought in another shipment of Zauberball from Schoppel. These were so much fun when we had them last and we thought we should have a repeat of that experience! Hurry in for the best selection!We are also working on our class line-up for fall and beyond. If you have suggestions, we would love to hear them so that we can keep our classes relevant and interesting!
What are you working on? Carol has a Baby Surprise Jacket, a Harlequin Jacket, the Crazed Scandinavian Cowl and of course socks on her needles. Barb is working on a mystery shawl, the Crazed Scandinavian, socks using the new Lizzie-Ann and Pirates Cove shawl using Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool.
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 allowing.
Knit-A-Long – Crazed Scandinavian Cowl – check out this beauty on Ravelry! It is a jaw-dropping two colour cowl, worked with light-weight wool, and is stunning. The cowl is worked as a tube so that all your colourwork is done on the knit side (what an advantage!), and then the ends joined seamlessly.
August Knitting – Clapotis – Explore the world of purposely dropped stitches! This scarf/wrap is knitted just as you would anticipate, and then stitches are (gasp) dropped to make a beautiful openwork effect. The large size used approx. 800m of worsted weight wool, although one could make the shawl a bit narrower and/or shorter and skate by with less yardage. Cost: $25 plus materials. Class starts August 1 at either 1:00 pm or 7:00 pm.
September Knitting – Harlequin Jacket – Always wanted to work with mitred squares? This is your project -- a delightful jacket or vest created using two or three colours of DK-weight wool and mitred-squares. Cost: $25 plus materials.
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.
