Cabling Fearlessly and a Christmas KAL!

It's the time of year when our minds and projects turn to accessories to keep us warm and the upcoming holidays!We have two events to get you going!The first is our next Fearless Knitting topic which is cables! They make you feel so clever and are so much fun to knit but may be intimidating if you're new to them.  Jenny will demonstrate two ways to make cables; one with a cable needle and one without.kniting-with-a-cable-needle-rtp ysolda-cabling-rtpBrooklyn Tweed's yarns are excellent for cabling because of their 'stickiness' and we have three hat suggestions using worsted weight Shelter and bulky weight Quarry that will have you cabling like a pro in no time, with or without a cable needle!bt-hats-from-shelter-and-quarry-rtp gentian-hat-rtpWe have more samples using cables in the shop; you can choose to go on a treasure hunt or ask us to show you!The demonstration dates and practice times are Thursdays, September 22nd and 29th and Saturdays, September 24th and October 1st from 11 to noon.  Please feel free to come to the shop on those days for free knitting help from noon until 1pm!The second event we have is a Knit Along (KAL) featuring Churchmouse's Basic Christmas Stocking pattern to get you in the Christmas spirit!  A KAL is a fun time with everyone making the same thing.  As a bonus, there is support and encouragement as you knit at your own pace.christmas-stockings-rtpWe will knit this charming stocking on Tuesday evenings September 27th, October 4th and 11th starting at 5:30.  Come in and get your materials before the 27th so you'll be ready to cast on right away!
