Dark evenings are upon us this weekend as we return to Standard Time.
I have always thought of this as the official beginning of The Knitting Season.
The fall is the BEST time to start new knitting projects.

This weekend also brings Full Moon Finish Sunday. Once a month we sit and work out
the nagging details that keep one from finishing something.
Don't let past mistakes hold you back! Bring them to class
and we'll get those problems fixed so you can move on.


Full Moon Finish

A monthly clinic to help you sew up,
block and tidy your
knitting and crocheting
