Highlights of upcoming classes
Tuesday January 26
4:00 - 6:00 PM with Diana
Entre-Lac Cowl 
entrelac cowl 
This cowl is not like the others you have knitted.  The entrelac work adds so much color it will amaze all who see it.  Most are working this with Mochi Plus- a roving drift wool.  Bring circulars- size 6 or 7.
Tuesday January 26
6:30 - 8:30 PM with Linda Miller
Baby Surprise Jacket
 Baby Surprise Jacket
The Elizabeth Zimmermann Baby Surprise Jacket is listed in the top 5 most knitted designs, on Ravelry.  This project has indeed been a favorite for many years.  If you have never knit one- you need to.  Just garter stitch, but a lot of learning available here.  Works up wonderfully in our new self striping yarns.  Join Linda- who is a master on this design, having knitted several and instructed many.  Knitted on circular needles- probably size 5 for most.  Linda will continue this class for 2 more weeks (this week and next) so join her now- 2 weeks are still plenty of time.
Wednesday January 27
10:00 - 12:00 PM with Pat
Design your own Sweater
Do you have a sweater that you just love, but it is wearing out, or its in the wrong color?  Join Pat to learn how to design your own, or recreate one.  Make changes to an existing pattern to make it just for you.
Wednesday January 27
4:00 - 6:00 PM with Lynn
Valentine Ball
Valentine ball
If you made one of the Beaded Christmas balls back last season- you know what fun this project can be.  Join Lynn for a Valentine treat.  Bring size 4 double pointed needles.
Wednesday, January 27
1:00 - 3:00 PM with Eileen
Offering Mitts and others
fingerless mitts 
Eileen had so many knitters who wanted to work on the Fetching mitts (another top 5 Ravelry favorite), that we needed to continue holding this class after the new year.  But for those who got the mitts done already, she is adding a new lace gauntlet called Offering Mitts.  
Offering Mitts
These Offering Mitts are lovely.  Knit in fingering weight yarn- a dyed solid color would look as good as natural does shown here. Bring double points for either project- size 5 for the fetching, size 1 for the offering mitts.  Yarn available at the Shop.
Thursday, January 28
10:00 - 12:00 PM with JoAnne
Illusion Heart 
This week we will create another Valentine goodie- I found another Illusion cloth.  The Heart Illusion cloth will be a favorite as all of the illusion cloths have been the most popular ones we have done.  Bring size 7 needles.  Yarn will be provided. 
Friday January 29
10:00 - 12:00 PM with Steph
General Knitting and New Cowls
Spiral Cowl
Steph will guide you through some new Spring weight cowls like the one shown here.  If you prefer, you can work on whatever general knitting project you wish.  Steph will help you through it.
Friday, January 29
1:00 - 3:00 PM with Pat
Sue the Ewe
It is time for Sam the Ram- Sue the Ewe is getting lonely.  Sam can be knitted with several weights of yarn.  Your choice.
Saturday, January 30 
10:00 - 12:00 PM with JoAnne
It's Teddy Time 
Come join me to knit this cute sweater & hat set for this adorable teddy. 
Class will be priced at a total cost of $20.00.  All inclusive!  Bring size 7 needles, and 4 stitch markers.  I will supply everything else including the teddy bear.  By Saturday I will have another sweater done with a heart on it.  This is a great beginner project.  Enough yarn included to make 2 sweater /hat sets.  Call to sign up.
Saturday Morning All Beginner's class- Learn with others at the same skill level.  You won't be in this class for long.   Join Eileen on Saturday mornings 10-12.
Coming Soon: 
Free Help session on Wednesday afternoons
2 Handed fair Isle Class- all day class -Saturday February 27 with Linda Miller
The January Challenge- Unbelieveable Numbers!
Well, we are now at 302 hats!  This is the final week of our challenge.  Please help us reach the highest number we can.  There is plenty of Encore Mega available- a terrific yarn for a fast hat.  Several patterns are available for Encore Mega as well as other yarns. 
Remember-as an added incentive- for every hat brought in- we will add your name to a drawing for 3-4 prizes to be awarded on Feb 2 in the evening.    
Only 1 rule:  To get your name into the drawing- please use yarn from the Knitter's Edge.  We will accept hats knitted in other yarns- as the need for these items goes far beyond our need to sell yarn, but we feel it is fair to restrict the prizes to our customers.  We will have lots of yarns available at low to bargain prices so this will not be a hardship for anyone.
Some New Stuff!
We received a load of new Namaste bags.  This wonderful line of knitting bags has been a store favorite since we opened.  Namaste has a new bag- The Monroe.   Come see this new bag as well as increased stock in existing styles.
Namaste bags are well priced for any budget.
ADDIS!  New sets of cables for the Addi Clicks are in stock now.  These new sets contain 3 cables - all in the same size- 24", 32", or 40".  We also have cable sets containing 1 of each size.
And Some Fun Stuff!
