Once again, our class schedule has been affected by the recent bad weather. We always cancel classes when it is not safe to be out or when nobody wants to be out. We mostly close when schools are closed. Today, Tuesday March 3rd, we will be open. Please be aware that the hills on the parking lot are sometimes icy. There are also some icy spots on the parking lot, especially after a rain. So the baby booties class from February is now moved into March (weather permitting) - when you sign up for classes, please always leave your phone number so we can call if in question. 

Sock classes are back on schedule (Saturdays 2:00 to 4:00) as well as the crochet classes. We are now taking names for April, please call or email to sign up. We usually start socks the first Saturday of the month.

Please be aware that Saturday crochet sessions are by appointment only - please let me or Janice know if you plan to attend. Janice will not come on Saturdays if nobody signed up. Projects in crochet class depend on the level of experience, Janice will work individual with you on those, based on your interest and skill. Tuesday crochet session are from 3:00 to 5:00, please call or email if you want to attend. If you have to miss a class, need extra help between classes or you just need help with a project you are working on or want to start something new, please come to our drop-in help class on Tuesday or Friday 9:00 to 11:00 or Wednesday night from 6:00 to 8:00. For other times or private lessons, please call the store. 

With Spring hopefully around the corner, we have been busy re-organizing the store to make room for new Spring arrivals. Some is already here, some more is still on it's way. We are especially excited about the new line "ITO" a japanese yarn company. I love the classic timeless designs in the pattern book. Coming in shortly is another new line for us "Dream in Color" - expected in mid March. Another batch of Vice Yarn should also arrive shortly. Vice is a new hand-dye company, rivals Madeline Tosh and Wollmeise. We are among the few selected yarn stores in the country to stock this yarn. I'm already working on a store model. I plan to have it ready when the yarn comes in. (Picture will follow). 

Already here and made into a store model (see picture) is our "Oakland Shawl". It is a great basic shawl, using two contrasting self striping yarns. The first batch sold out as it came in, but we re-ordered, now we have plenty to choose from. Also new are two Noro Yarns (Taiyo Sport and Kibou), Katia linen, Louisa Hardings Noema, Debbie Bliss and Juniper Moon. We re-ordered our favorite from last season (Queensland Uluru), more and new colors of Nuble, New Colors of Duo (self striping acrylic great for afghans or prayer shawls), Raggi and more.

 

New Accessories: Namaste needle cases, project bags by Lantern Moon and Know knit.

We will be planning another yarn tasting party in April - until then -  Happy Knitting, stay warm
