Artyarns “Duets” Dates

The dates for the Artyarns Duets Cowl or Scarf class are as follows: Oct. 25, Nov. 8, and Nov. 22. All are Saturdays, and the class will take place from 1-3 pm. There are five luscious colorways from which to choose, so come in by Sept. 27 to sign up and choose your color. You can, of course, also order the kit for this project without signing up for the class! The $40 class fee does not include the kit.

Picot Dot Dates

The dates for the Picot Dot Wrap class have been chosen! The class will consist of three Saturdays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm: 9/20, 10/4, and 11/1. The price of this three-session class will be $40. The project requires two skeins of Kauni Effektgarn, so unless you have two skeins in your stash that contrast pleasingly with one another, you will need to come in by Thursday, 11 September and select colors so that we can order them to arrive in time for the class. We will also arrange to have a couple of color combinations on hand for last-minute sign-ups, but choosing your own is a lot of fun! I have one of these wraps started and it is addictive knitting. See you soon!

Powered Up

The lights are back on! DTE did better than they predicted and resolved the storm damage faster than expected, at least for us. I hope the rest of you are faring as well. If not, come and visit us in a lighted, air-conditioned space full of yarn and we’ll make some tea and commiserate and knit with you.

Today, 27 August, we are closed due to a power outage! Estimates are that power will be restored by 11:30 pm tonight, so check back tomorrow. We apologize for any inconvenience, but, well, we’re powerless. If by some DTE-wrought miracle our electricity is back on and we can open today I’ll post it here. Thanks, and I hope everyone whose power is out gets it back soon.

Time for Classes and a Sale

Summer is ending unbelievably soon, so a new class schedule and an end-of-summer sale seem only appropriate.

The class schedule is under the classes/events button above.    We’re excited as always about our fall/winter classes, especially our specialty classes. There are a couple whose dates are still being finalized, so give us a call to find out more about them and if you like, we’ll call you when the dates are set.

The sale is a good one: something for everyone and 40% off. The special selection of yarns on sale includes some chunky/bulky wool and wool blends, some colorful and luxurious fingering to DK weights, and some cotton blends perfect for year-round baby and accessory knitting. Come in and check it out!
