Focus on Feet


Albus Dumbledore noted that one could never have enough socks. We certainly agree when considering hand knits. It doesn’t matter whether they are knit toe-up or top down. They can be plain and simple or all the colors of the rainbow in an intricate lace design. Socks can be short, ankle length, mid-calf or knee high. There is nothing quite like a pair of hand knit socks to make you feel all warm and fuzzy. Although they might look like they would be terribly difficult to make, once you learn the ins and outs and the little tricks you’ll find you can whip through a pair in no time at all. One of the tricks is to knit two at once so you are finished at the same time. We have the class for you beginning October 2nd.

Trunk Sale

trunk

Our Mountain Colors trunk sale will continue through the month of October. Come in to get a glimpse of the exotic colorways that are available from this Montana based company. Any yarn, kits or orders that you purchase during October from Mountain Colors will be 15% off the regular price. From socks to shawls to sweaters, Mountain Colors offers up a divine collection. We are also featuring our Mountain Colors sock kits this month with a knitters choice class on Fridays through the end of the month.

Going Green Raffle

bag

We are continuing our monthly raffle. If you bring in your own bag or purchase one of our purple store bags to carry away your purchase you will be entered into our monthly drawing for a free instruction book. Our store bags are strong and suitable for carrying groceries and other shopping items as well. The best part of these spacious bags is that they fold up and tuck into themselves to become very small when not in use.

Patterns, Yarn and Classes

We have a store full of sock patterns, yarns, needles and several classes to help you get started knitting socks. On Mondays, Deb Reams will show you how to do single socks on double-pointed needles. Thursday evenings you can learn how to make two at a time with the Magic Loop method and on Fridays, Meg Downey will have a knitters choice group using Mountain Colors kits and yarns. Now is the time to learn how to do this rewarding and fun activity.

Dream in Color

The new Dream in Color selection will be available on October first. These one of a kind offerings are one of our favorite surprises each month through February. The list is limited to ten but you can still put your name on the waiting list. Sometimes knitters will pass on a project which then goes to the back up list.
