Log Cabin Blanket (on Dec 15)

One 4-hour classes; $25 + tax & supplies

This is my favorite blanket technique.  The garter stitch is simple enough for beginners, graduates of Knitting Basics, as well as everyone else of course. We’ll discuss various techniques for picking up stitches, edging options, some color theory for planning out your blanket.

There are two pattern choices, Mason Dixon or Cottage Creations.  We’ll discuss variations on the traditional log cabin pieces, asymmetrical squares, many squares put together or one big one!

Book Signing and Trunk Show by Connie Chang Chinchio on May 6

 

I’m so excited about this! Connie Chang Chinchio is coming to Knitting Etc. for a book signing and trunk show from 1 to 4 pm on Sunday, May 6. Her book Textured Stitches, published by Interweave Press, came out last fall. If you don’t have a copy yet, come get one! Connie started designing knitwear when she was working on her Ph.D. at Cornell. Her designs have appeared in numerous magazines, books, and single patterns. You can see many of her designs on her web site. Connie will be bringing her samples from the book for show and tell and answer questions.

Spring and Summer Magazines

The spring and summer issues of the magazines we carry (Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit Simple, and more), plus Rowan Magazine 51 are here.  We also re-stocked Knitscene from last summer because it had so many fantastic designs!  During the extended Spring Sale until April 22, they are 20% off!

Come browse what fancies you this spring and summer.  Take advantage of the great deals on yarn in the Spring Sale (10% – 60% off) before this Sunday.  If you are thinking about attempting your first sweater and aren’t sure how to go about it, join either one of our 2 summer sweater classes.  Both classes welcome first-time sweater knitters.

Spring Sale Extended to April 22

Filatura di Crosa Superior (cashmere & silk) @ 40% off

Thanks to everyone who showed up over the weekend for our Spring Sale! We had lots of fun seeing many familiar faces as well as new knitters who saw our print and radio ads and stopped by to check us out.

We heard from many people that they couldn’t come to the sale because this year’s Spring Sale coincided with school spring break and they were out of town. So we are going to extend the sale by 1 week until next Sunday, April 22. Everything in store will be 10% to 60% off. If you didn’t make the 4-day rush for whatever reason, now you have one more week to check out some fantastic deals and browse through our patterns and yarns at a more leisurely pace.
