We're in the midst of "yarn season". Many gifts have been started, plenty of hats and scarves are on the needles, as we wait patiently for the cold to hit. There are some nice new models knitted up in the shop, and lovely yarns have been arriving!

next  weekend!!
Fiber Festival of New England
November 4th & 5th at the Eastern States Exposition
Come visit me in booths 291/292/293W

In the past few weeks, I have been able to donate bags of yarn to  6 different charity knitting/crochet groups! It was wonderful to have so much to pass along and the products made will touch the lives of many people. Thank you to those who brought yarn to the shop! I will continue to distribute yarn to these groups, so please continue to bring it in! Also, if your group is knitting for people in need, please contact me so that I can add you to my list of recipients! Email is best.

Don't forget to follow me on instagram (@marjisyarncrafts) or like my page on facebook (marji's yarncrafts) to see what's new in stock, projects that we're working on here at the shop, and cool color and fiber inspiration!

the italian method for tubular cast-on
with marlene

The Italian cast-on produces a nice, elastic ribbed edge that can be used for two-color brioche and double knitting. The Italian cast-on is also an alternative method of starting a tubular cast-on giving a beautiful, professional beginning for hats, cuffs, or any other ribbed edge. Start your next hat in this class as you learn!
