November Classes

Create Your Own Knitting, Crochet or Weaving Class This class is for anyone from the beginner who wants to learn the basics to the advanced student who would like help tackling a specific project. If you would like to schedule a group or a one-on-one lesson please call the shop ~ we will be glad to schedule a lesson at your convenience.

November Knit-a-longs

This month, we will be hosting two great knit-a-longs! 

The Gaptastic Cowl knits up very quickly on size 13 needles ~it will quickly become on of your favorite accessories and would also make a terrific gift. This knit-a-long will meet on Wednesdays in November.

The Serenity Cowl by Tahki is beautiful chevron cowl knit in 2 colors of Zona yarn. Choose your own color combination to create YOUR unique project ~ what a great way to practice working with 2 yarns at once! The pattern costs $6 and can be purchased on ravelry.com or at the shop. This knit-a-long will meet on Tuesdays in November.

Come by the shop soon to choose your yarn and to sign-up for the KALs ~ you will receive 20% off your knit-a-long supplies this month (not including sale yarn). There is no charge for the knit-a-longs with purchase of supplies from the shop.

Congratulations, Debbie Garrot, our October knit-a-long drawing winner. Here she is wearing her beautiful shawl!

Chemo Hats

Many of us at the shop have been knitting Chemo hats for patients at Lafayette General for some time now. Sadly, the hospital is always in need of more caps, so we could really use your help! If you are interested in contributing to this great cause, please stop by the shop for advice on the best hat patterns and yarns for these hats.

Check out the sale wall for some great bargains on yarns that would be perfect for chemo hats!
