Anzula yarn 



Sabrina (Anzula Luxury Fibers) left lots and lots of new yarn when she left on Friday, including some awesome cashmere sparkle. I do hope you had a chance to join us. She gave a great intro talk about sweaters and the fitting process - how to look at the pattern and decipher what the designer was intending and then translating that to fit your style!

We will ask Linda to continue this is January
.. will 2018 be the year you will start to tackle sweater making? We hope so - it is so gratifying to wear one of your own creations.

In the meantime we have received some lovely yarns from Yaksha & Iachos from A Hundred Ravens, Das Paar from Skacel and even more from Holiday Yarns, stop in soon to check them all out and be inspired!
Opal Sock Yarn Advent Calendars are here!

Finally, we have an Advent Calendar for knitters & crocheters....  65 meters of lovely Opal sock yarn to do what you will with December 1 - 24! No nothing on the 25th - since you will be up all night on the 24th finishing your project!

Lots of chatter on Ravelry of projects that can be made with these lovelies....  but don't wait they are in high demand and we only received a few of them.

Our very Knit-a-long started this past weekend - so there is still time to jump in and join Beth as she leads this group. They are doing the Tool Box fingerless mitts in Shalimar's Paulie Yarn, luxurious camel, cashmere, merino wool and silk! We kitted these up for folks - no time to join the group... stop in and pick up a kit to do your own.

NOTE:
There will be no classes Wed evening Nov 22. We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we will see you on the 29th.

Looking forward to seeing you in a class soon,
