I wanted to sing "rain, rain, go away" but then I realized that some of the alternatives could be so much worse, so I'll take the rain! As promised, our sign up sheets for our March classes are now available and as always the dates and time will be posted in our sidebar.

We have some very fun projects lined up for March. We love that knitting and crocheting is not only fun and therapeutic; it is also a wonderful way to learn new things. So we have picked projects that introduce an interesting technique. And for those of you wonderful artists out there who know how to do the technique, the projects are still a blast to do!!

Here's the lineup!!

This is the Flower Scarf. Tasha used the Baby Cocoon to make this very elegant collar. Add a nice button and you really have something special. This scarf is a quick way to make any outfit pop while providing a bit of warmth.
The flower is knitted, which is an unexpected surprise, since flowers are usually crocheted. The main part of the scarf is done in Fisherman's Rib.And since we love variety and tend to be a bit wackadoo.....we found another way to wear this piece.........circa 1940's done Woolworks style!!

If you want something sassy, this is the class to sign up for! We will show you how to make these quick and easy cables and again, the buttons take it up a notch. Tash actually ran over to Nikki's Dog House next door to "borrow" a lid from his big tubs of ice cream so she could make the brim. Dave was a doll and gave her what she needed for two hats. See, even our Putnam neighbors are helping the knitting cause! Thanks Dave!
This crocheted beauty has attracted a lot of attention at our shop. It is worked both sides at the same time and your results is an ultra warm, wonderfully thick baby afghan.
Isn't that gorgeous?
If you don't have babies to crochet for, just double the pattern and make a nice throw for yourself or a loved one.

Encore was used for this baby treasure and you're in luck!! We just stocked our Encore wall!! That's a work of art in itself.

We can't wait to help you with your yarn selections for these great classes. See you soon! Oh, and keep your eyes open for our upcoming "Hat Heel Socks" class. It's a great new way to make your feet feel pampered!

Happy knitting and crocheting!
