Speaking of Saturdays and food, we’ve added a new attraction here at The French Knot.
Snacks and Skills on Saturdays
Once a month, we will have a class to teach a new technique, project or skill and we’ll throw in some coffee and muffins as well. The classes will start at 10:30 and will alternate between needlepoint and knitting.
Starting on April 20th, our first class will be a needlepoint Voodoo Doll. This class will include an exclusive canvas (designed just for us) as well as a stitch guide, threads and instruction. The cost will be announced asap. Bring your own tools.
On May 4, knitters can Learn to Cable without a Cable Needle. This is a handy technique that will speed up your cable knitting. If you don’t know how to knit cables, this is a great time to learn. We will knit a washcloth. Yarn and pattern will be provided, you’ll need a set of size 7 needles. Cost is $20 for this class.
Speaking of learning something new… This Tuesday, Knotty Knitters will be learning to crochet. All are welcome! Tuesdays nights are a great time at The French Knot. You don’t have to be a knitter to come hang out. As you can see, this week the knitters will be crocheting. We plan to start a washcloth, so bring a hook and cotton yarn if you have it, if not, we’ll set you up!!
How About Some Finished Objects?
Leona finished this jacket from knit, Swirl. It’s a great book full of unique patterns.
Some firsts from a few of our knitters…
A first sweater
A first project… a cat blanket (to be donated to an animal shelter).
A first pink project… by Georgie… for her first granddaughter.
A first hat.
For those of you wondering where all that yarn came from for the yarn bombing… One of the yarn vandals cleaned out the bottom of her closet of old yard sale yarn and put it to its highest and best use. Now she has more room to buy quality yarn from The French Knot.
