A classic favorite. These warm and cozy bed socks are often a knitter’s first socks. Such a great project that it is now a beloved part of our Knitting 201 program. FREE pattern that takes just one ball of Woolcotte.
A super soft blend of wool, cotton, and acrylic. Works up at a chunky weight gauge with 170 yards/100g ball. 6 colors of Woolcotte are now available at TKE for only $4.00 a ball. That’s a sweet pair of socks!
Several additional patterns available for Woolcotte- All FREE.
Woolcotte Toddler Bed Socks
Your adult bed socks can be paired with toddler socks to keep their feet warm too. I have knit up 2 pair of these for my grandchildren. They are a fast knit and they stay on their feet. FREE Pattern.
A chunky weight all acrylic fiber that is plump and soft. The soft speckled colorways are a delight to see and to knit. Now in the pool at 30% off!

On Sunday October 13, Amanda and I will be leading another Knitting class at the Yoga Studio. This time we will be teaching Log Cabin Knitting (and crochet). Plan on combining two of your favorite things- Knitting and Yoga! (Wine is included so I guess that’s 3 things). Call Denise at Creative Actions Yoga to register. We would love to have you join us!
If you sign up you will be supplied with 2 colors of Fantasy Naturale and a knit or crochet pattern to make a log cabin cloth. Bring size 7 needles or a G or H hook. After the craft part of class you will enjoy a yoga session with Denise.
Ready to take the next step in your rigid heddle experience? Join us for a “Warping Lab” . You will plan and warp your own project. Weavers must have some experience with direct warping as this is not a “teaching how to warp” class. However, guidance will be available to assist and answer questions. Students will then complete their work at their own pace. Loom rental available for a fee of $10.00.
Class fee: $35.00.
Project materials are additional. Please call to register.
Monday Oct 14 | 1-3pm with JoAnne
Back by popular demand! Learn to Brioche by Knitting an easy 2 color cowl in a chunky weight yarn. I strongly suggest Chunky Merino Superwash, but Encore Chunky will also work. You will also need a 24-26″ circular size 10.5, and a stitch marker. Please call to sign up.
Lets Play with Beads
Tuesday & Thursday evenings
6:30 – 8:30pm with Maggie
Join Maggie to try your first foray into the beading world!
Ironish starts at the tip of the right wing and works across to the tip of the left wing. The right wing has increases to get to the rectangular lace section, and the left wing uses decreases to bring your stitch count back down again.
Ironish plays with texture, an optional beaded edging and two colors of fingering weight yarn. Do we ever have a lot of fingering weight yarns- so your choices will be endless!
Please call to sign up. Other project ideas welcome as well such as
Now is the time of year to make some animals. Knit and crochet ideas are plentiful and Julia is a wiz at these. Toys can be used as Christmas gifts for the little ones or as ornaments.
