January Hat of the Month
It’s not too late to start your January hat of the month to stay warm this winter. We have samples in the store of both our beginner and our intermediate/advanced patterns. The beginner pattern is a basic hat pattern that features needle felting and the intermediate/advanced pattern features colorwork, braids and tassels. Best of all, if you complete your January hat you can bring it in to the store and receive 10% off of your supplies for February’s hat!

Glorious Garter Stitch: The Einstein Jacket

January 4, 2008

  I hope you’re receiving our newsletter, but just in case I wanted to make sure that you knew about our class featuring the Einstein Jacket. This class will be taught over the course of five fridays this winter and is a great choice for new knitters or more experienced knitters looking for a stash-buster. The Einstein Jacket is made almost completely out of the knit stitch and requires very little finishing: you’ll be able to wear it shortly after you’ve cast off!

  Kathy chose to make hers out of several colors in order to use up some of her stash yarn, but the Einstein also looks wonderful out of a single colorway. After browsing around the store for a few minutes, I found several yarn options if you won’t be knitting from your stash: Dale “Hubro,” Reynolds “Lopi,” Brown Sheep “Burly Spun,” Blue Sky Alpacas “Bulky Hand Dyes,” Malabrigo “Chunky,” or of course you could double strand your favorite worsted weight yarn.

  The possibilities for this jacket are truly endless. Stop by the store and we’ll help you to explore them.
