Get a little something extra for a child in need. We have a collection box for coats, toys, clothing etc for children in the community. The box will be picked up on December 15th, so please get things in by then.
The class schedule for December is up....the next weaving class is Weaving for Fun on Tuesday Dec 4th at 5pm. You can make something for yourself or to gift.
We have the new Limited Edition Box Of Joy Karbonz Interchangeables! They are pretty and so nice to use. I have a set here that you can try out and one more to sell. I can probably order more during this month, but after that I don't know; so if you want it, get it now. They are only making 2500 of them and the numbers on the ones I got are in the 500s.....
If you are in weaving class for Saturday...Just put on a warp the usual/normal way. Light solid color, smooth yarn/cotton is easier. You can use the same yarn to weave with. Just one to play with doing different sorts of weaves. It is about finger controlled weaves....They are so fun.....
Here are the winners of Knaughty Knitter door prizes!
Grand prize is a cone of suri alpaca fingering weight yarn and it goes to Cheryl Sommardahl
The second prize was donated by Berroco - a kit for making a shawl in Kodiak (one of their new yarns) and the winner of that is Cindy Louallen
Third prize is a skein of Done Roving Handpainted Silk yarn and that goes to Sherry Scoville
There are several other prizes as well:
A Noro Book by Jenny Watson - one each to Sherry Neel, Jennifer Wilson and Ann Yotter
And Berroco sent a couple of Handeze Craft Gloves - these go to Janie Kelly and Terri Reisz
You can pickup your prizes by coming by the store anytime this month (though sooner is better).
Thank you to all of you who stopped by and made the festival such a fun thing this year.
And about weaving.....seems to be catching on - Lisa and I both were helping people try it out all day. Even some small children caught on pretty quickly. The next Weaving on the Knitter's loom class is Saturday Nov 23 & 30 at 1pm. There are still a couple of slots open.
is this weekend! Nov 2nd 9-5. Because we will be getting ready for the show there is no group Friday night and we will be closing a bit early - 5 instead of 6pm.
There are guaranteed to be wonderful vendors and demonstrations. I am teaching weaving in the booth. You can reserve a spot ahead and then have a choice of colors. Weave a scarf for yourself in two hours or so. Come out and see us at the booth to register for a doorprize too.
