Dreaming in Color

Dream Club 2014 PosterOne of our favorite events is The Dream Club.  Each month, September through February, we get a box filled with the most beautiful yarn, dyed with the most beautiful limited-edition colors!  No spoilers, but the September box is sitting right next to me and you are going to love it!  Each skein comes with an exclusive pattern designed for that month’s featured colorway and fiber.

We have 15 skeins.  I’ll post a picture of the yarn and pattern Monday morning.  Just for you.  Even though it’s Labor Day!  It will go on sale when we open the doors Tuesday morning (September 2nd).  Don’t miss it!!

Enjoy your holiday weekend.  We will be closed on Labor Day.

Hope you have time to make lots of stitches!  That’s what I’m planning for my holiday!

Save the Date!

Some smart stitchers begin making Christmas presents in January.  Others of us (me) don’t get inspired until November-ish.

The folks I work with have been hard at work thinking up holiday projects for some time now.  We are having a Christmas Countdown Open House to help you get inspired early enough to get it done!  Details are on our Events page.

Cozy Boot Cuffs
Learn to knit these Cozy Boot Cuffs!

Boot cuffs are a popular gift and are quick to make. I am making these using the Cozy Boot Cuff pattern from Churchmouse Yarns. I love the multi brown and denimy blue!  I also plan to make a charcoal grey pair.  They feature a stirrup and are like a leg warmer.

Join me for the class on Thursday evening and learn lots of great techniques: how to do a great new provisional cast on, work the magic loop method, and learn a stretchy bind-off.  Details on our Class Schedule page.

Kathy made these boot toppers.  The pattern is a free pattern on the Berroco website that you can find here.  Come to one of her knitting workshops and learn to knit in the round and change colors using the Fair Isle method.

Happy Stitching!
