It's Time for Blankets!

Hey knitters! It's time to sign up for the 2018 Blanket Class!
In this class, you'll meet up once a month on Monday or Tuesday nights, depending on which sessions you choose. Each month, you'll work on a new square using an interesting stitch pattern that Adrienne will teach you. At the end of it all, she will show you how to put it all together into your new favorite blanket. And just like that, you have a blanket!

We are gearing up to order yarn for the class, which starts in January. This class is really fun, and your blanket will be awesome! If this sounds like fun to you, please give us a call or stop in to sign up and pre-order your yarn. You can use a solid color or mix it up with whatever you like. Sally needs to get the orders in soon, so please call or stop in this week.

Wool Wash!

Do your woolies need washing? The Farmer's Daughter Wool Wash is just the ticket! With lanonin to replenish and tea tree oil to protect, you wool items will be so happy. All of the scents are amazing, but I think the bergamont chamomile is my favorite. Pop in for a sniff and choose the ones you like best!

Bounce Baby Blanket

We are not big kit people at the shop, but sometimes a really good one comes along. Like this Bounce Baby Blanket kit from Knitted Wit and tincanknits

These blankets kits use Knitted Wit Victory DK, a sproingy and bouncy machine-washable merino. We have a rainbow variegated kit called Happy Birthday. Look at all of those bright and fun colors!
We also have a more muted option for your hipster baby called So Hip it Hurts. Love that olive brown background colors. And all of the accent colors. This would be so cool!
They were difficult to photograph in the bags, and I was afraid I'd lose a wee skein if I started unpacking. So come on by and see the lovely colors for yourself!
P.S. There are several gorgeous examples of this knit up on Ravelry using these kits! Aghh, now I want one, too!
