Yarn/sock dyeing on Thursday

We will do the dyeing outside if the weather is good, inside if it's not. All that you need to bring is your choice of yarn, some old clothes and or an apron, and a snack to share if you wish. Tasha and I will take care of the rest. We will keep it simple and fun, we will be using kool aid for the dye. If you want to bring some rubber gloves that would be fine.

This should be a fun night. If you want to just come and knit we'd love to have you.

New Summer Hours

Beginning June 7th we will be closed on Sundays for at least the summer. Not sure if it will continue in to the fall. We don't have many days off, if any, and with Sue working 5 days a week and on call for 7, well, you understand. I would also like to spend some time with my family and my dogs that are missing me. I already work every other weekend at the hospital so... at least I'll have 2 days off a month. Please remember that we are open late on Thursdays til 9 pm and we are usually here beyond that just sitting around knitting. We may even be on the sidewalk in the summer. Why not join us. We will be doing a Sock yarn dyeing 'class' on the 25th of June, if the weather is good. We will be outside. Please let me know if you plan to come so we can get the right amount of materials. There will be a charge just for the materials. It will be fun. Just because it's warm, or will be sometime this summer, does not mean the knitting has to stop. Think about smaller portable projects you can use for Christmas gifts. We have some nice 'green' market bag patterns that use cotton. Check out the Saucy from Reynolds...already sold out of 4 colors and we just got it last week. Great stuff.
