Tuesdays, Thursdays, Sundays: 10-3
A blast of REALLY COLD air drifted over our Thanksgiving
table last week,
causing all those attending to shiver and ask, "What are
you knitting for ME this year?"
Since I do love to knit for folks who wear what I make
after the turkey and pie was totally appreciated (!) I
made a list.
And each night I am checking it twice! By dark
each evening my goal is to
be surrounded by baskets of yarn, needles and
patterns. Knitting bliss...
Hats are the main event so far,
Ridges hat pattern $
scarf is on the list,
as well as 2 pairs of House Elf Socks for a set of
friends who dress up in Hogwarts attire for school.

We were was just informed by
the Cascade yarn folks that there will be a
PRICE INCREASE on their yarns starting January
We have not seen that in YEARS, so if you like
knitting with them as much as I do, stock up
on your favorite colors now.
As we count down to the end of the year, and gift giving
and receiving become a favorite topic of conversation,
consider the gift of a KNITTING RETREAT. In
February, we will spend 48 glorious hours at
the WON DHARMA RETREAT CENTER in Claverack , NY,
knitting socks, stretching with a knitting yoga teacher,
and meditating while being
wonderfully fed and kept warm on heated floors (!)
This retreat is perfect for beginning knitters and
experienced ones, as well as beginning yoga students!
Heads up! KNIT NITE gets a new burst of STRANDED
KNITTING ENERGY this month,
and check out the classes below we have on tap for
Monday Knit Nite
For those who LOVE to knit
and learn with friends.
New projects are selected
by those attending.
