Knitting Essentials 102 starts this Saturday!

And you will want to read all about the expansion; and come and check us out. We're still in-process, but the construction mess is gone! It's all just so exciting!!

Knitting Essentials 102 starts this Saturday!
OK, you've learned how to knit and purl, now get ready to learn how to increase and decrease in Knitting Essentials 102, starting this Saturday, February 23rd. This 3 session class will meet from 9 to 11am. The registration fee is $65.00. Read all the details here.

Shop Expansion Update!
The wall is down, and the rearranging of furnishings and displays has begun.
The main entrance to the shop has shifted. Since we now have 3 spaces, the new front door is the one in front of the register counter. Yes, by all the empty racks waiting for baskets and new yarns!!
Most of the construction mess is gone, although we're not quite done. We'll be moving a door next week, and replacing ceiling tiles, and rearranging the exit signs and a ceiling fan and adding some accessible electricity near the table. I know, too much information, but I'm all excited and want to share it with you!!
Furniture and display baskets and gridwall brackets are inbound over the next few weeks, so you'll want to stop by regularly to see how it's all coming along.
The yarns that have been somewhat hidden away for most of the past week are now back where you can reach them again. And we'll have all sorts of wonderful new yarns and spring yarns and booklets coming in over the next few weeks.
