Washcloths with JoAnne 
Flower Power cloth 
Next week (April 1) we celebrate Spring with a flower wash cloth.   This cloth is knit in pieces ( the 5 petals) which are then connected and knit to the center on a 16" circular followed by double pointed needles.  A good learning experience.  This class will be repeated on Tuesday evening, April 13.  You will need a 16" size 7 plus double pointed needles in size 7.  We supply the yarn.
Join Any of Pat's Classes  for The Brandywine Shawl
You may join any of Pat's classes and work on this new shawl.  The Brandywine Shawl. Pat is knitting it out of Hand Maiden Sea Silk- a Silk/ Sea cell blend that has incredible drape and luxurious shine and color.  Just one hank makes this easy lace shawl.

Steph's shawl class- The Citron has been a huge hit.  The shawl is lovely and an easy knit- with Steph there to guide
you all the way.
Some tid bits of fun!

Whats new!

Knitters Companion 
Knitter's Companion is one of the best resource books on the market.  It contains just about anything you need to know about knitting- increases, decreases, making buttonholes, sewing, etc.  If you do not already own this book- we suggest you get yourself one.  Small size makes it very portable-the spiral binding makes it lay flat while open.
We just received these new note cards- featuring balls of yarn, sheep and knitting.  Just the right size for thank you notes.
