This Week at
The Knitter's Edge
Last week was a great week.  Everyone was in a terrific mood due to the wonderful weather.  I guess it brings out the best in each of us.  Knitters were eager to start  some spring projects and Shawls & Lace were on everyone's mind.
Stop by to see all of the wonderful ideas we have- check out the bulletin board to see them all in a snapshot.
Some Class News
Steph's new bulletin board is now complete. Everyone who comes into the shop stops to take a long look at all of the class information posted there.  If you haven't seen it yet- you need to come in to take a look.  Steph will try her best to keep it fresh and up to date.

Highlights of upcoming classes
Wednesdays 4:00 - 6:00 PM
For those special knitters who need just a bit of our undivided attention, and cannot make a class - we would like to suggest the scheduled help time of 4:00 - 6:00 PM on Wednesdays.  Steph, Eileen and JoAnne are normally available to assist you during this time.  We suggest you call ahead to schedule a few minutes with one of them for some uninterupted assistance with your project.
For the next few weeks- ALL of Pat's classes will learn a new cast on technique and how and when to use it.  Its time we start learning more so Pat plans on taking just a few minutes in each class to teach something new.
4:00 - 6:00 PM

Steph keeps adding new toys to her menagerie,and they are adorable. 
Her new chipmonk comes with a very stylish sweater.
