Mark Your Calendars!

Yarn Nook will host our annual Open House during the Oil Center Festival of Lights on Friday, December 2nd, 5pm - 8pm. We will open the front of the shop for visitors and will have refreshments and items for sale. We encourage you to knit, crochet, or spin items to be placed for sale at the shop during the festival. We will provide tags for your items the week prior to the festival (you decide on the price), and you will receive all money for the sale of your items.

This year we will host a separate Yarn Nook Christmas party that is not a part of the Festival of Lights. We will announce the date of the Christmas party in the December newsletter.

November Knit-a-long

This month we will be knitting the amazing Commuter Fingerless Mittens. These convertible mitts will keep your hands warm and your fingers free! Knit using worsted weight yarn they work up quickly and the size 4 knitting needles give the mitts a beautiful firm fabric and outstanding cable definition. Come by soon to sign-up and to choose your yarn!

We will meet on Tuesdays, November 8, 15, 22, and 29, 10am - 12pm.

The knit-a-long fee is $20 plus the cost of your supplies and includes all the help you need to complete your mitts. You many attend as many or as few of the gatherings as you would like. If you are unable to attend the scheduled knit-a-long dates, we invite you to create your own project class ~ for a fee of $20 you will receive all the help you need to complete your project at your own pace!
