Fun and Frivolous!
The holidays here already and if you are anything like most of us we still have a long list of items to knit or people to knit for. It might be time to change the plan to make a sweater for Aunt Gladys and make her some warm wooly mittens instead. December is dedicated to those smaller projects that are every bit as welcome as the larger ones. We are talking about hats, scarves, mittens and gloves specifically with a rack full of books and pamphlets on hand, feet, neck and head warmers. Plus we have some wicked crazy pattern books for animal hats, Harry Potter and Downton Abbey knits as well.
First Friday Art Walk
Our artists for First Friday are DeeAnn Martinez and Sara Bailey. DeeAnn has amazing custom designed pillows, pillow toppers, sleeping bags and animal beds and Sara has designed and crafted stunning crochet dresses for little girls. Come in on Friday, December 6th and visit with our artists and see what we have under our tree for the holiday season.
We will be happy to share some of our holiday patterns with you when you buy the yarn to complete them. These Santa Claus gloves are both adorable and easy to make. Come in to the store and pick up your free pattern.
Gift Giving Ideas
We have so many gift giving ideas for both knitters and those who want to buy gifts for knitters. A large selection of beautiful yarns, needles, and accessories can make your gift shopping very stress free. We also have a wish list option that is invaluable for those who haven't a clue what to buy for their knitter. You will also find beautiful art objects from local artists including Swedish embroidered bags by Chris Maestas. Large $30.00, med $25.00 and small $15.00. She will take orders as well.
Dream in Color Club
We were so captivated by the socks that were offered up in October that we can hardly wait for the next project. The November kit is a shawl that sells for $30. If a member does not want the selection it can be passed on to someone on the waiting list. You can pick up your new kit on November 1st.
