This Weekend at
The Knitter's Edge
This weekend, Amanda and I will be at a National Trade Show in Columbus, Ohio.  We are looking forward to seeing all kinds of new yarns, needles, patterns, and toys- always the toys!
If you want to get a hint of whats going on there- follow the show on Ravelry.  See directions on their homepage.
All classes will be held this weekend and next week as usual.  My Monday night newsletter will be delayed by one day- please forgive me but we get back so late Monday night- I will have to do it on Tuesday- but I promise it will be worth the wait!

Saturday June 12  1:00 - 3:00 PM
 June Sock with Pat 
Lotus SockPat is working on her new June Sock with her Saturday sock class.  This sock is called Lotus from the Joy of Socks book.  It looks like an easy yet interesting sock with scallops and fans.  It will work up nicely in any sock weight yarn- solid, semisolid, or handpaint. 
Wednesdays 1:00 - 3:00 PM
New Entrelac Shawl with Pat
Entrelac shawlPat  is taking on another new project this month- an entrelac triangular shawl called Dianna.  She is knitting her shawl with Ty-Dy Sock and so far the colors are working out very well- with each color run in the yarn working up about 2 blocks of the entrelac so the colors are looking like an ever changing display of diamonds.  The leaf motif in each block adds a wonderful lace detail.


Thursdays 6:30-8:30 PM
Happy faceJoin Diana this Thursday evening for some great knitting.  She has been off taking care of her puppy and is now itching to get back to some fun projects.  Stop in to see what she has in mind.

Friday 10:00 - 12:00 PM
Steph's new Felted French Slippers

2 Handed Fair Isle Class with Linda Miller
fair isle hat
It has been awhile since we have held this class.  It has continually been a huge hit.  Over 4 hours, you will learn to work Fair Isle with 2 hands.  Mastering the technique will open many doors for you in the Fair Isle world of knitting.
There is homework- you must get your hat started so that the entire 4 hours can be used learning the technique, and working the actual Fair Isle portion.
Stop in to sign up and pick up your yarn and your homewrk.  This class usually fills up so call soon to reserve your spot.  Class limited to 10 students
Tuesday June 15- 6:30 - 8:30 PM

Bring size 7 needles. Also size 7 double pointed needles
Steph's Hedgehog

Remember Steph's Hedgehog- ( seen here unfelted)... well now he IS felted and is he ever adorable.  He has the cutest little paws.  By next week he will be stuffed and ready to run wild in the shop.  Stop by to see him next week, and join Steph for a hedgehog class.
Marilyn's Summer Schedule

NOTE:  This week- Saturday, June 12 Marilyn will hold her afternoon kids class.  She has to flip Saturdays - so starting this Saturday June 12 she will be here every other Saturday (12, 26, July 10, etc) for kids class.
square needles 
Marilyn will be teaching several classes each week with us this summer.  An additional kid's class will be held every Wednesday morning 10:00 - 12:00 (starting June 23).  This class time is a very nice one as any mothers who wish to knit can attend Pat's class held at the same time. 
In the first daytime kids class Marilyn will be having the kids make their own needles- from chopsticks!!
Marilyn will still be holding her Thursday evening Kids class from 6:30 - 8:30 every Thursday and her every other Saturday afternoon class- 1:00 - 3:00 beginning this Saturday, June 12.
Marilyn's Hobby HorseA big addition for us which has all of us excited is that Marilyn will be teaching an adult class each week as well!  This will begin Thursday, June 24 from 2:00 - 4:00 (note the time).  Her first project will be an  American Girl Doll Sweater.  She also has some other ideas up her sleeve like this felted Hobby Horse.  Can't wait to see him once he is felted and attached to a stick!
