This Weekend at
The Knitter's Edge
Our Big Cotton sale continues through the weekend- and we are adding a very big special to this cotton blow-out! 
Please join us this holiday weekend- bring your weekend guests to enjoy the shop as well.
Happy 4th of July
We will be open Saturday July 3. 
We still have some Flag Cloth kits available- we just keep making more- almost on a daily basis.  You only need 1.5 hours to complete one so even if you buy a kit on Saturday- you will get it done for that holiday picnic.
To celebrate the holiday we are offering these Flag Cloth/hotpad kits for $5.00.  Each kit contains enough Fantasy Naturale to knit two of the Flags.  Flags are 5" x 8.5". Only garter stitch is used so they are great for beginner knitters. Get a couple knit before the holiday.

Crochet is A-coming!
I crochet
We are now taking names for the July 27th class- this class is open to beginners as well as intermediate crochetters.  We are very excited by the amount of interest in these upcoming crochet classes- we all are looking forward to this.  Eileen and I know we need to get ourselves into one of Pat's classes- but they are almost all full!  I know we will find a way- so look for us sneaking in some Tuesday...
Amigurumi cat 
In the first class you will learn the basics of crochet- how to chain, single crochet, maybe even double crochet.  With so little, you can do so much!!  We will have beginner crochet patterns galore and to top it all off... Steph will begin doing some crochet amigurumis.
These little animals are easy to make using only single crochet.  Steph has finally decided that shewill do this cat- an easy project- and cute as can be.
