Cider and bonfires and soft hanks of yarn - the perfect compliments to a lovely Autumn Day! Sit back and enjoy the bright, warm colors as you cast on a new project. We have so many new yarns in the shop, the hard part will be choosing which to use first. We have lots of one-skein projects that will work up quickly for a lovely gift - or an indulgence!
Knit knockers will meet this month on Thursday, November 1st, and Tuesday November 20th,
3 pm. Many afternoons you will find other knocker knitters sitting around our big table. If you need help getting started on your first pair,
just come on down!
Our spinning group meets one Saturday a month and this time its the second Saturday, November 10. Bring your wheel or spindle and favorite fluffy stuff as we gather to spin
a yarn or two. We gather about 2:00pm
to share skills and some pot luck snacks. All are welcome.
Sock Club Meets most Fridays at 3:00. During November, the dates for Sock Club are November 16, 23, and 30th. Sorry, we won't be meeting on the first 2 Fridays of the month. This is a nice time to gain knowledge from the hive - we each have our favorite techniques and enjoy learning from one another. All are welcome!
Judy has a really easy roll-brim hat that you can knit in just a couple of hours. Adorn with a pom pom, or not, your choice. Come in Saturday, Nov. 3rd at 1 pm and start your hat. Brisbane is a beautiful yarn to use with size 10 or 11 circular 16" or 20" needles. $25 covers class and yarn cost. You won't be able to stop with one hat; you will want to make one for all your loved ones.
Friday, 3 pm, November 9th, join Judy to start your new leg warmers using
Fair Isle yarn. If you are always cold in the winter, this is a great way to stay warm and look good at the same time. Use Magic Loop and size 8 or 9 needles for this easy project. Class fee only $10 with yarn purchase. These make great Christmas gifts too.
Tatting you say? We are considering a beginning tatting class on a Tuesday afternoon in December. If you've been waiting for a class like this, please call and let us know so we can get it scheduled.
Shop Small Saturday is November 24th, when national brands of yarn, needles, and notions are 20% off. After a hectic Thanksgiving holiday, relax in the convenient and courteous atmosphere of locally owned shops, boutiques, and stores. Did you know that Fiber Frenzy provides the exclusive retail outlet for many Kentucky Fiber Artists? You'll find wonderful kits for the knitter or crocheter in your life, or we'll put together the perfect basket. It's Everything You Yarn For!
Each year between Thanksgiving and New Year, Berea Tourism
organizes the Make It Take It Give It workshops. These workshops are generally half day or one day sessions, designed so you will have a finished gift suitable for someone you love. There is a wide array of projects available:
We endeavor to bring you the very best instructors in their fields, and this year is no different. Susan Hope, Cyd Engel and Whitney Harmon are coming to us from around the country to share their extensive knowledge of great knitting and crochet techniques. Both Whitney and Cyd have owned and operated yarn shops (Virginia and Arizona respectively), and Susan has represented many lines of fine yarns from around the world. Besides being yarn-smart, these three women are great fun to be with! Don't get left out - register for your workshops soon!
We're playing with the work schedule again - so many things going on!
