Happy Father’s Day

Greetings!
Summer is upon us. End of school, graduations, summer camp, vacations and Father’s Day all loom in the very near future. We are making plans for our annual Knit In Public Day on June 14th at Thai Chili Restaurant right next door to us. We will be KIPing from 11AM until about 2-2:30PM so grab your friends and your knitting and make an afternoon of it. There will be door prizes and everyone who attends will receive a ticket for discount shopping that afternoon. Always a fun day and we will be starting a knit along afterwards. Now don’t forget Dad on his special day. We suggest the following: hats, scarves, socks and sweaters. You could get a hat done by then and maybe a scarf or socks if you are a fast knitter. Show the man in your life some love.
Simple Summer Sundays
It has come to our attention that we have many new and beginning knitters. We have planned a summer program just for you. Starting on Sunday, June 7th we will be featuring a very simple project just for you new knitters. These projects are small and easy enough for the novice to complete. The first project is called the “Soft Waves Hat” and is shown above. This project is done in Noro Shiraito, one skein, and a size 3 circular needle, 16″. You also need one marker. This yarn is a very soft combination of angora, cashmere and wool and the price per skein is $30.00. You can also select a different yarn if you choose. If you would like to join us for Simple Summer Sundays (SSS) please come in at 1:30 on June 7th and be prepared to knit on this. If you have the needle and marker at home, bring them. It is a requirement for this series of workshops that you purchase your yarn from us, no stash yarn please. You can come in early this week and select your color and have it wound. For selecting and winding on Sunday, come at 1:00PM so we can start to knit by 1:30. The pattern is complimentary and will be available on Sunday. This hat is a slouchy style and will fit almost any adult. We can make adjustments if you would like it smaller. There is no charge for the session, only the yarn, and it is limited to beginners. You can call us for more information.
Seed Stitch Scarf Knit Along
Here comes another SSS. These are the colors I have selected for my seed stitch scarf sample (SSSS). The yarn is Baby Alpaca DK by Plymouth. The photo shows extra colors that could be used to lengthen it if desired. I plan to use about 6-7 colors. This project is very easy and just has a gazillion seed stitches but the progression of colors is what makes it so pretty. Also the yarn is very soft and luxurious. I have knit up one ball of the yarn on a size 6 needle and got about 12-13″ with 45 stitches. This gives a width of about 8.5-9″, a generous scarf. The original free pattern on Ravelry is 22″ wide and 80″ long, a very large stole. You can make yours any size you wish and use any yarn you wish. I selected the baby alpaca dk because of the light weight for our climate and the lovely colors. It is very easy, just sort of monotonous, but a great tv watching and no thinking kind of project. We will be doing this as a knit along starting on Tuesday June 9th from 11AM to noon. We will also do this on Sundays starting on June 14th after KIP day. If you purchase your yarn then, you can use your discount ticket. Bring a size 6 needle for DK or appropriate needle for other weights. You can use anything. Price per skein is $8.50. No stash yarn please.

This is the perfect time to get a jump on fall, winter or holiday knitting. It is a more relaxed season and I seem to be able to be more productive in summer. I guess we are home more because of the hot weather and if on vacation, that lends itself to relaxation and knitting. Hope you get a lot of both in this summer. Don’t be strangers. Come join us for our knit along or SSS series.
