An Interesting List
Celebrate Your Love Affair with Knitting

 I love knitting so much, let me count the ways:

1. It fills my life with color.
2. It encourages my creativity.
3. It keeps my hands busy.
4. It introduces me to new people who share my love for the craft.
5. It loves to travel.
6. It likes the same TV shows that I like.
7. It keeps the same schedule as I do; if I want to knit in the middle of the night, it's there for me.
8. It likes to change bags as much as I do!
9. It challenges me.
10. It keeps me company, even when I'm cranky.

Diana's Second square She has just finished a second square seen here, laying on top of the first square: Call for more information and to sign up.

Socks on 2 circs with Pat 
 Puppy Love small
Last Saturday Pat started a new sock of the month,  This month she has chosen a simple  stitch pattern- but one that teaches a new technique- knitting backwards!  The sock is called Puppy Love and will look best in a self striping sock yarn- and we have many to choose from including the new Fingerpaints from Cherry Tree Hill (see more below on this yarn).  You can join up at any time.  
4:00 - 6:00 PM
Toys with Steph
Steph's Hempathy Cowl
Steph's last toy was an adorable little Bunny named Daisy.  I don't know what her next toy will be, but she is really into this toy knitting so I am sure it will be something irresistable.
Come into the shop to see Steph's Toy menagerie.  It is a fasinating collection.
Tuesdays & Thursdays
6:30 - 8:30 PM with Linda Miller
Felted Fair Isle tote 
You have learned the 2 handed Fair Isle technique- now put it to good use knitting this Felted Fair Isle Tote.  Feel free to join the class even if you haven't taken the 2 handed fair Isle class as long as you have had some Fair Isle experience in the past. 
Linda has several other Fair Isle projects in mind- join one of her classes to see what she has come up with.
By the way- you can freely come to either of Linda's classes- Tuesday or Thursday.  So if one week the Tuesday works best- come then, and the next week- Thursday of it suits your schedule better.  
Saturdays in April
1:00 - 3:00
Socks with Eileen   
Eileen started April with a new sock  knit with a brand new yarn by Cherry Tree Hill.  Its called Fingerpaints.  Cheryl Potter- owner & master dyer of CTH has discovered a way to make a self striping handpaint sock yarn.  We have the first products from her dyepots at The Knitter's Edge.  The base yarn is her signature Supersock Select- spun in Peru just for her.
The colorways are new and exciting.  Eileen has chosen Morning Glory- a blend of purples and greens that says Spring all day long!
Thursday April 8

Washcloths with JoAnne 
3 in 1 checked=This Thursday morning we will feature a new Slip Stitch patterned washcloth.  Learn to work slip stitch patterns with this easy to knit cloth.  You will need 2 colors of Fantasy Naturale cotton- we will supply 1 hank- you should try to bring a small amount of another color.  Worked on size 7 needles.
Tuesday April 13
6:30 - 8:30 PM
Washcloths with JoAnne 
Flower Power cloth 
Next week (Tuesday-April 13) 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.   You will need a 16" size 7 or 8 plus double pointed needles in size 7 or 8.  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.
Whats new- 100% Silk Luxury!

One of the new yarns we have just received is a lovely pure silk- with a rustic yet soft hand.  The colors are so subtly blended.  This will make a magnificant shawl.  The price of this silk is amazingly reasonable.
Chaiten by Aracunia
Chaiten hank 
New Chemo cap pattern
Jen's chemo cap
 Jen recently finished a lovely chemo cap knit in Jeannee Worsted.
This is indeed a hat for that special friend in need.  Free pattern is available at the shop.  We have been blessed to collect many hats in the past few weeks, but unfortunately we need more.  If you haven't knit one yet- please stop by; pick up one ball of Jeannee and a free pattern and get knitting. 
News flash!! Lucky for us- Jen will be able to be with us on Fridays for the new few months!! Welcome back Jen!
Now for the Sale Stuff
REMEMBER:  If you are a class member- you get an additional 10% off any sale prices.
Ok we lied...  We said that the Encore- odd balls would be in the pool for just one week, but we have way too many odd dye lot balls.  So we will keep this yarn in the pool for just a few more days- until Thursday.  On Fiday- a new yarn will be in the pool.
Encore is filling the Pool this week.  All odd dyelot balls of Encore Worsted have been cleared off of the shelves to fill the pool this week. Great for the many one ball projects for worsted yarn as well as for Fair Isle or striping work.  Terrific deal at only $3.50 each- while they last.
