Announcement

Per Governor Wolf’s mandate for the closure of all non life sustaining businesses; at this time The Knitter‘s Edge is closed until further notice.

We will reopen as soon as we are allowed.

Having pattern or project problems?

Although we will not be at the shop, you can call Amanda (484-767-7698) or JoAnne (610-554-6190) for pattern assistance. We can often help you through a knitting or crochet emergency over the phone, or in writing.

We can use email, facetime or phone pictures to assist you.

Please join our new Facebook page:

The Knitter‘s Edge Group. Facebook.com/groups/theknittersedge/

This is a page for customers, class members and staff to share photos and thoughts. You can post directly, please add photos- it is so much fun seeing what everyone is making. Just an attempt to make us feel less isolated.

Remember EZ ‘s motto: “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises.”

Stay safe,

JoAnne & Amanda

Stash Busting Pattern Ideas

Do you have yarn at home, but don’t know what to knit? In each newsletter (and I will keep them coming), I will feature some pattern ideas; each will either be downloadable in the newsletter or with a link to a FREE Ravelry download. You can always call me to ask about yarn substitutions.

An easy knit for scraps of Encore Worsted or Comfort Worsted.
The two mitts don’t have to match- make them fraternal twins!
This FREE Pattern takes about 300 yards of a DK weight yarn.
If you don’t have that much yardage, make it a cowl.
Just sew the 2 ends together.
These two Illusion Cloths are on the same pattern
FREE Download
Illusion cloths are fun to knit.
If you have partial balls of Fantasy Naturale Cotton you got it made.
Less than 50g each of 2 colors and size 7 needles will do.
And you’ll have a cloth ready for Easter.

Sewing Face Masks

Our local hospitals have asked us to sew face masks. The nurses will wear them over their N95 masks. These outer masks will be changed often- thus prolonging the life of the N95 mask. Here is a link to the pattern & a video. There is info on both Lehigh Valley Hospital Network and St Luke’s Hospital websites. Another link to info is here.

St Luke’s has drop off points already set up; LVHN will be setting up drop off sites shortly. Only use new materials. Much thanks to Mary Lynch for the photo above.
