September Pattern of the Month and News!

081309181112

Available until September 30th as our pattern of the month…

This pattern is a great introduction to stranded knitting.  You don’t need charts, but can practice holding two yarns at the same time, with breaks of plain striped knitting in between.  The color changes keep you interested and the result is a lovely hat.  This hat requires just one ball of both Wisdom Poems and JojoLand Baritone. 

 This pattern is free through the month of September with purchase of suggested yarn.

CHARITY HAT DRIVE UPDATE

Our Charity Hat Drive is moving right along!  We have until September 11th to finish up a bunch more.  Don’t forget, we’ll be having a special event on September 11th for turning in any last minute hats and giving out a few prizes (and eating some cookies of course).

SEPTEMBER KNIT-A-LONG

Our next knit-a-long will be starting on Thursday, September 3rd.  We will be working on the lovely Princess Grove mittens from the new Jared Flood book from Classic Elite.  I’ve made one so far, and they are really fun and absolutely gorgeous.

Made with our own Recycled Wool!

Alternatively, for those who aren’t interested in the mittens, September will also be “Finish all the Stuff you started during the knit-a-longs” Knit-a-long.  Thursday nights!  As always, knit-a-longs are a completely free event, but please purchase yarn for knit-a-longs at Island Yarn.

WE WILL BE CLOSED, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 7TH FOR LABOR DAY.  ALL OTHER HOURS ARE REGULAR.

There is so much new stuff coming in over the next few weeks, I can’t even begin to name it all so come on in to see the beautiful new yummies for fall!
