This Weekend at
The Knitter's Edge

From what we have been witnessing, everyone is in a knitting frenzy this month!  We have seen so many finished projects come through the door, and so many new projects being started.  We are thrilled!    It is wonderful to see how proud everyone is of their work, and we are proud that we have helped in some way. 


Please keep bringing your work in for us to see, it makes us feel as good as it makes you feel!


The Mitten Tree is Up!


Mittens for this Saturday Class:  Snowmen Mittens!  
Our tree is filling up- but far from full yet!  We need more Mittens!
We will be taking Mittens for the Kids- and for the contest up until December 18.  Thats when we will award prizes (and we got some good prizes this time).  After that we will continue to accept mittens for the kids through January.  There are over 400 students in this elementary school and we want to keep as many hands warm as we can.  I was told that the vast majority of the students are walkers so keeping these mittens are really needed.

We all have knitting books- so we might as well have the perfect pair of bookends for them- very appropriate.

Squiggle ballThis is a fun kid's yarn from those masters at Sirdar.  2 multi colored strands are twisted together to create an incredible display of color. 
Squiggle hat
2 balls and about 2 hours of knitting time makes a fast kids hat, such as the girl's version shown here.  We have a boy's version too- as seen below.
