Eeeek! It's November!

This year has really flown by! Is it the unusually warm weather that makes it so hard to believe it is November already? It is less than three weeks until Thanksgiving! For me, it's the time when panic mode sets in - so much to do!!

We have been especially busy at the shop, gearing up for the holidays. Keith is hard at work already on his fabulous new Christmas window displays - whether it is Mary or Keith doing our windows, the displays are often the talk of the town in Emmaus.

On another note, we have an enormous number of knitterly holiday gifts available this year - from stitch marker charm bracelets and wrist ruler leather bracelets to gorgeous pottery yarn bowls to beautiful project bags and adorable notion tins - and that's just to name a few! But these items have been and will be flying out the door, so be certain to get yours while we still have some!

As always, we will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

Simone is doing a
Fix Your Mistakes Class
2PM - 5PM
Cost $30.00
The Class For Which So Many Have Been Asking!

Wouldn't it be wonderful to fix your mistakes on your own, and not have to wait until you get to the yarn shop for help? Simone will help you with that!

You'll be learning to fix dropped stitches on both stockinette and garter stitch pieces, how to change a knit stitch into a purl stitch and the other way around, and how to add a missed yarnover. If there is extra time, we may look at adding a missed Make 1 increase, and how to go about changing a Make 1 Right into a Make 1 left.

Homework: Bring 2 swatches worked in DK weight or Worsted weight yarn, still on the needle (not bound off). One swatch should be in stockinette and one swatch in garter stitch. Each swatch should be about 5" wide and about 4" to 5" high. Bring a "fix-it tool" or a small crochet hook along to class.
