Specials for the week!
All Specials that we offered last week during our big sale are still on sale this week.  Due to the crowds in the shop Saturday, we figured we had better hold the sale prices over for a few more days to give everyone a chance to take advantage of the good prices and the terrific selection of sale yarns.
Highlights of upcoming classes
Saturday April 24
10-12 and 1-3
All Day 2 handed Fair Isle class with Linda
Fair Isle hat II
There are still 2 openings available in Linda's Fair Isle class this Saturday.  This is one of the best received classes we hold.  Join Linda to learn how to work Fair Isle in the round using both hands while knitting a hat.  Call to sign up and grab these last 2 seats.  There is homework, but its fast so you can get it done before Saturday.
Tuesdays & Thursdays
Diana's Class times
Felted EntreLac Purse
 Felted bag
Diana just finished this felted tote bag worked in Noro Iro using the Entrelac Technique.  Noro yarns are known for their fabulous color changes and this yarn doesn't disappoint.  Join Diana to learn this technique- which is easier than it looks.
Thursdays & every other Saturday
Kids Classes with Marilyn
 Girl knitting
 Marilyn continues to amaze all of us with her patience and really cool ideas to keep the kids knitting.  They love her and her classes.
Tuesday & Thursday
6:30 - 8:30 PM
Nightsongs Shawl with Linda M. 
Linda Miller is starting a new Shawl!  This is called Nightsongs.  The pattern is worked in charts- not very difficult ones.  The pattern is repeatable so you can easily make the shawl larger.  This was important to Linda as she wanted to use all of the 550 yards of the new Blue Heron Rayon Metallic she purchased for it.  The pattern as written calls for 1 hank of Handmaiden Sea Silk ( we got that!) at 440 yards- so you can use that too.
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. 
Tuesdays 4:00-6:00 PM and Thursdays 6:30 - 8:30 PM
Great American Afghan with Diana
Diana's 3rd squareDiana has knit her 3rd square for her afghan. Join up for a great deal of learning and some fun knitting
Thursdays 10:00-12:00 PM
Washcloths with JoAnne
potholder & clothThis week I will challenge the knitters with an easy project- a Potholder and a matching dishcloth knit in a mitered square design. You will need 2 colors and size 8 and 10 straight needles
