Are you planning to join the I-75 Yarn Crawl? Be sure to include Fiber Frenzy on your route! There are special trunk shows through the week highlighting some of our Kentucky fiber artists, a free gift with every purchase, and a sweet savings of 10% off all yarns from major manufacturers when you show us your passport.  We have special hours from 10 - 6 every day, Monday through Saturday, to allow you extra opportunities to stamp your passport! Catch Jessica in the house on Wednesday and save 20% on Jessica's Creations yarns and fibers!  


Jessica has created another beautiful colorway called "Pansies"  Here's a sneak peek. Follow our page for when she debuts the colorway. It will be available in DK sw merino/nylon and MCN sock weight but will not be discounted.




 

Are you a toe-up person or a cuff down person? Sock Club meets most Fridays at 3:00.  Bring your latest project and visit with friends who share your passion for great fitting socks!  We will meet August 3, 17, and 24 - but not on August 10 due to the Yarn Crawl, and not on August 31. 





Red, white and blue have always been one of Judy's favorite color combinations. Show off your creativity and patriotism with a beginner-friendly beaded scarf! This scarf is so easy - all you do is knit.  Since the scarf is constructed in the round there is no need to purl. This project is also perfect for learning how to incorporate beads into your work.  Knit with DK weight yarn and a size 5 or 6 circular 16" needle.  Class fee is $25 and beads will be provided. Use red, white and blue Debbie Bliss Cashmerino yarn for a scarf you will want to wear all year long.  Tuesday, August 14 or Monday August 27th, 3 pm. 



Hand dyed yarns are either dyed across the hank or dyed around the hank,  Either way, you can make the most of the design if you know the "Magic Number" of stitches that it takes to consume one entire revolution of the hank.  Once you know this, you can control the color pooling, to stack the colors, spiral the colors, or create an argyle pattern!  It takes some swatching to create the magic, but the special effects are worth it!  Join Joan on Thursday, August 16th or 23rd from 2:00 - 4:00 to decipher the magic number and start a great cowl or scarf.  The class is free with purchase of Plymouth Special Reserve Worsted or Fingering yarn. 



Sweet Baby Kimono Wrap Crochet class:  With fall approaching why not learn how to make this sweet little sweater using Baby Jazz yarn.  It makes a great baby gift or a project to keep little ones warm. You need an H hook.  Noon on August 18. Class fee of $31 includes one skein of yarn. 



Spinning Day is August 18 from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.  Bring your spindle or wheel and hang out with others who love to play with fluffy stuff.  This is your best opportunity to learn from the hive = everyone does it a little differently, so you can observe many techniques and absorb their knowledge! Oh, and feel free to bring a refreshment to share if you like! All are welcome.
  





Knit knockers every first and third Tuesday, this month August 7th and 21st.  Any Tuesday afternoon you will probably find other knocker knitters sitting around our big table.  If you need help getting started on your first pair,  just let us know.
