Announcing Sock University!
Summer is the perfect time to work on socks! (It's always a good time to work on socks if you ask me!) They're small, they're portable and they don't take up a lot of room in your bag. So we thought we'd take everyone a step further and really get serious about socks this summer. Our first class is going to be an intensive series about Heels. It's really the only part of a sock that you have to think about and everyone knows how to do a BASIC HEEL - And it's fine.....but maybe there's one out there that you'll JUST LOVE!!! You can use a mini skein for each heel and we're going to go slow and take them two at a time. You can do the whole series or pick a few.
We'll have more info in a few days!
We need 3000 scarves by the end of the year so it's time to get going!!! What better time to knit scarves than the summer - they're perfectly portable and don't take a lot of time! We even have a series of classes scheduled for May and June based on one book called Reversible Scarves. These scarves have some new techniques for knitters to learn to keep things interesting.
Scarf Rules: Red and Black washable yarn. 6 inches wide, 60 inches long. Any pattern, knit or crochet.
Please help us NOW. We got a late start last year after Red Heart dropped out and they only collected 900 scarves and this is an ALL OR NOTHING proposition - either they ALL get scarves or no one gets one to wear into the opening ceremony.
These are Cascade 220 sport weight scarves meant for the Texas weather and we have all of the colors together in ONE PLACE!! It's miraculous!! Please call the shop if you would like to buy one - 512-291-8866 - they are $70 plus shipping
