Kick off FALL with something new!
So it's unofficially fall....we have to face the music and prepare for cooler days ahead! Prepare yourself and start a new project...do a shawl, do mittens, do a scarf, do a hat! The possibilities are endless and you can be prepared for the season!
If you are stumped, why not check out the Class Schedule
and try something new! We are offering technique workshops, knitting clinics and beginner classes in addition to some special guests! If you really want to tackle (it is football season) something different, sign up for Barbara Kreuter's class on Saturday, October 5th....she'll be teaching us the tricks to create the Frequency Cowl
shown here....Give us a call to sign up for any of these fun classes!
Caring People, caring gestures!
Cheryl is a giver....she takes on charitable projects with a vengeance; here's proof! A few weeks ago we mentioned the Prevent Child Abuse in N.J. ; an effort to educate parents about Period of PURPLE Crying" which is during the first few weeks of an infants life. They need our help! Cheryl has been killing two birds with one stone. She has taught some of her knitting groups how to crochet and create hats for this cause at the same time! We thank all of the ladies that have contributed to this great cause while learning a new craft!
We found some projects from the same pattern book from two different knitters! These are from the Knitted Hoodies for Kids
Robin did these two matching sweaters for her grandsons.....they are adorabe and we can't wait to see them on once grandson #2 arrives!
Fernanda whipped this hooded sweater up for her grandson too! We love the color combos and know that this will be enjoyed!
Great job ladies!
