New Idea for Brediculous

Brediculous Addy Socks sold out so quickly the last time that we didn’t have time to even get a sample knit! Now we have more in stock plus a crochet scarf sample! Brea’s colorways are so colorful and inviting. Each 100g hank of Addy Socks contains 463 yards of 75/25 SW merino/nylon blend. Perfect for socks as well as shawls & scarves.
A FREE pattern on Ravelry for a wonderful crescent shawlette. Easily expandable in size too. Dee’s own scarf is knit here with the Strawberry Fields colorway on Brediculous Addy Socks. Many other colorways available as well.

Beading

Adding beads to your scarf or shawl can be such a beautiful thing! Please consider joining Maggie on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for some fun beading work. Maggie has many shawl & scarf ideas for bead work including her own Ironish scarf on which you pre-load the beads. The Knitter’s Edge also has the four shawls shown here on display for you to see and feel.
All beads were purchased at Owl Be Beading- a local bead shop.
My favorite! The beads make scallops all along the edges adding just the right amount of weight for nice drape.
Knit with a fingering weight yarn such as Tosh Twist Light.
FREE Pattern for a beautiful shawl, knit here in WTF Flocking Sock Xtra in a red/black colorway. Beads are placed at the intersections of the diamonds.
A FREE Pattern for a lovely large fingering weight shawl with patterning along one end. That’s where the beading adds a great accent.
One of our classic shawls- make it as large as you want. The beading creates an added accent along the eyelet lines. Knit in a DK weight yarn.
Choose your beads wisely with the expert help of Barbara Talijan- owner. Make sure you tell her we sent ya!! She has a huge selection. We suggest you go with pattern in hand so Barbara can best assist.

Upcoming Classes

Warping Lab with Lynn
Tuesday Oct 15 | 3:15 – 6:15pm
Ready to take the next step in your rigid heddle experience? Join us for a “Warping Lab” . You will plan and warp your own project. Weavers must have some experience with direct warping as this is not a “teaching how to warp” class. However, guidance will be available to assist and answer questions. Students will then complete their work at their own pace. Loom rental available for a fee of $10.00.
Class fee: $35.00.
Project materials are additional. Please call to register.

Lets Play with Beads
Tuesday & Thursday evenings
6:30 – 8:30pm with Maggie
Join Maggie to try your first foray into the beading world!
Ironish starts at the tip of the right wing and works across to the tip of the left wing. The right wing has increases to get to the rectangular lace section, and the left wing uses decreases to bring your stitch count back down again.
Ironish plays with texture, an optional beaded edging and two colors of fingering weight yarn. Do we ever have a lot of fingering weight yarns- so your choices will be endless!
Please call to sign up. Other project ideas welcome as well.
The bottom photo is of Maggies own Ironish- Love the beads!
