Hello Everyone. This week we have lots to let you know about. We have new stuff, charity knitting, sale information and classes. Here we go!
New for Needlepointers!
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star…
Look how colorful you are!
This yarn will be great for adding a contrasting cuff/heel/toe color to your socks. Or buy two separate colors and make striped socks.
From Adriafil’s website: “Another exclusive innovation of this collection: the user-friendly jacquard! The dyeing has been worked out on an eight-colour thread just to achieve a real jacquard effect. This implies that, by simply working with plain and purl stitch, you will get coloured striped pattern with jacquard elements. Forget the hard manufacturing to achieve this particular pattern. The composition and the count enable you to create wonderful garments which suit everyone. Obviously with an unparalleled easiness, you really must have a try..”
You can see some projects done with Knitcol here, on Ravelry
A Charity Knitting Opportunity
Lisa (she blogs here) has a friend in NOLA who is working with the veterans home there and they are hoping to gather 155 new knit or crochet lap blankets to hand out at Christmas. She needs any contributions by Dec 1st. You can drop blankets off at the shop and we will get them to Lisa.
We have put another crochet class on the calendar. On November 15 from 10-1, Michelle will guide you through the basics of how to crochet. Her last class was a great success and was helpful for new and experienced crocheters both. $25 plus materials.
The knitted Christmas Stocking class is full, but keep checking for more knitting classes.
Needlepoint 101 is October 25. You will make a simple mini stocking that will have you learning eight different stitches and youll have fun doing it.
This ‘n That
Do you need a stitch guide? We want everyone to know that if you need help choosing stitches for your newly purchased canvas, we can help you out with that! We are happy to do stitch guides for you when you buy a canvas from us.
Thanksgiving Closing Dates. The shop will be closed Wed-Friday November 26-28 for Thanksgiving. We will reopen on Saturday the 29th ready to help you with your Christmas knitting (or to help your friends and family buy you something great).
October Sale. During October, all Halloween canvases are 40% off and all orange yarn is 25% off.
Happy October Y’all!
