Emma’s is a hand dyer who knows what yarn shops need and what
knitters love! We met Emma & her sister at TNNA and instantly fell in love with what she does.

Holiday Gift Ideas

From now through the Holidays I will feature a gift project idea in
each newsletter.
Some will be classics, others brand new, but all patterns will be FREE!
They will be linked for you to immediately download and get to work!
On Tuesday’s email, the link to the Aireado Textured Hat & Cowls did not work. My apologies. Here it is again. It should work this time. There is a second FREE Pattern as well for a great new yarn: Electra-Lite.
Make the patterned hat & short cowl out of just one hank of Aireado, or
make a longer cowl out of one hank. FREE Pattern at TKE.
Literally lighter than air! Made of soft baby alpaca, warm merino wool and nylon. The structure of Aireado is unique as the fibers are blown through an ultra-thin nylon tube with air creating an airy yarn with extraordinary yardage. 283 yards/100g hank.
We all love a little glitz! And we are all infatuated with this newbie ELECTRA LITE. 425 yards of sumptuous Superwash Merino Wool, Nylon and Lurex come together to add instant elegance to any project. Debuting in 12 electric shades sure to spark creativity.

Community Knitting Fall Collection

Mother Laura just received a desperate plea for these Toiletries. Our collection’s timing is just right to help. The need will increase greatly in the next few weeks as the winter shelters open in November. Next time you are at the food store, please throw one or two extra items in your cart. We thank you!
Every holiday season the Community Knitters chooses a project for giving, this season we have chosen to help our local soup kitchens supply their clients with toiletries. We will be collecting both full size (preferred) and travel size supplies which will be distributed to local soup kitchens and shelters.
We suggest:
soaps
shampoos
toothbrushes
toothpaste
deodorant
lotion
ladies sanitary products
shaving supplies
We will be collecting items at TKE through Thanksgiving.
Thank you for helping.
