Summer finally arrived, just in time for July 4 celebrations, and everyone seems uplifted by the sun and bright skies.
This month we have some great special events in addition to our Love Lane First Friday family festival, during which we have our Sock Circle from 5:30-8:30pm, and the Love Lane Street Fair on Saturday, July 8 from 9am-4pm. (The street will be closed so please park behind the shop.)
On SUNDAY, JULY 16, meet the authors of Drop Dead Easy Knits, Gale Zucker and Kirsten Kapur. They will be signing their wonderful book and also teaching two workshops! Sign up on the Classes page.
On Friday and Saturday, July 27 & 28, cast-on, bind-off genius and knitting master, Cap Sease, will be teaching two workshops. Stay tuned for details.
We have classes for you, too.
If you want to learn to knit, now's your chance! Starting Tuesday, July 11, 10am-12pm, join our KNITTING 101 class. Shestin will teach you all the basics over 3 sessions. You can sign up at our classes page or call the shop. We provide the starter materials and needles, then you provide the yarn for your project from our vast array of lovely fibers.
TOE-UP socks are fun and portable, and you can learn how to knit them on magic loop in Shestin's class, starting July 11, 6:30-8:30pm. This 4-session class runs through August 1.
Have you seen the beautiful LITTLE BIG WRAP that Rachel knitted up for the shop? She will be teaching it starting on Thursday, July 13, at 10am-12pm. By the end of the month you will be well on your way to, if not actually finished with, a soft and colorful new wrap. Yarn supplies and pattern are included in the $125 price.
We are always adding new classes, so please stay tuned. If you don't see what you're looking for, please let us know. Private lessons in knitting, crochet, needlepoint, embroidery and sewing are an option, too!
Looking forward to seeing you soon. Remember to bring along your work! We love to see your FO's and WIP's.
