April Happy Hour Canceled

Thank you all for a great Spring Sale! We are canceling the April Happy Hour this Friday to give our staff a well-deserved rest. The next Happy Hour is on Friday, May 6. Spring classes are being added this week. How about learning fair isle to match the spring colors that are sure to come?

Laura Nelkin’s Mystery KAL

Laura Nelkin is having a mystery knit along. Mystery knit along? You can find out all the details on her blog. You must sign up by April 1 in time to get the first clue in e-mail!

It’s great having a local designer because Laura will be hosting two meet-ups for her mystery knit along at Knitting Etc: The first meet up is on Wednesday, April 6, 7 – 9 pm. The second is on Saturday, April 16, 3 – 6 pm. Laura will be here to answer your questions and talk about the pattern, her beautiful designs, and her new venture as an independent knitwear designer! And really, if you haven’t met Laura in person yet, she is fun to hang out and knit with. Both events are free to join! Head over to Laura’s blog to sign up!
