For a great last minute gift, knit a pair of Fair Isle mittens! Five free patterns are listed on the class info sheet for students to choose from and print out before class. Bring your pattern, wound yarns, needles and tools to class so we can all cast on together. I will be serving holiday tea to enjoy while we knit. Suggested yarns: Jamiesons Shetland Spindrift, Mini Mochi, hand dyed sock yarns. Students must know how to knit stranded before class so we can focus on mitten techniques.

Join the Fall Shawl KAL and make a beautiful shawl to keep you or a favored friend warm and cozy this winter! Choose your pattern and yarn from the wonderful array at the shop, cast on, and post your progress on the shop blog and the Tangled Purls group on Ravelry. There are several beautiful samples displayed throughout the shop to inspire you, or you can find a shawl in a book in the shop, or do a search on Ravelry. Check out the beautiful yarns in stock - Anne by Art by Eve used for the Holbrook Shawl in bright pink, Misti Alpaca, Jamiesons Shetland Spindrift, and many others. And sock yarns make beautiful shawls as well - one skein makes a Multnomah shawl!


After the holidays we'll have a get together where you can show your shawl and enjoy the compliments of other knitters.



Learn new techniques and make new friends! Come join us for GAKAL, each month on the third Saturday, from 11am-1pm. This is a fun project, in bite-size pieces, that is friendly to time, work, and your budget!
