We’ll have a healthy dinner and a delicious dessert or two, followed by lots of knitting and stitching time and all the help and instruction you want.

It’s a class so our normal class rules apply and you’ll get credit for it. The fee is $25 and advance reservations are required by the Wednesday before.  Yarn must have been purchased from Knit One, Stitch Too.

There will be a surprise or two during the evening as well.

Future dates for this year will be announced as they are scheduled. Call the store for more information.

KNITTED KNOCKER NIGHT

We’re partnering with the Levine Cancer Institute to make and distribute Knitted Knockers for women who need breast prosthesis after surgery. Did you guess that we will make and they will distribute? Actually they have knitting and crochet groups that will be making them along with several church groups that knit and crochet for good causes, and our knitters and crocheters. The prosthesis can be crocheted, knitted in the round, or knitted flat. We’ll be happy to do the seaming and stuffing if you bring them to us. We are also collecting the finished knockers for deliverey to the Levine Cancer Institute for distribution to women who need them. We have several yarns that will make wonderful knockers, and will be happy to help you with any questions or problems. You can come in any time for that whether you bought your yarn here or not.

We’ll be hosting KNITTED KNOCKER NIGHT on the second Friday of every month from 3 pm to 10 pm. There’s no charge and all we’ll be doing is knitting or crocheting knockers, but – you know us – there may be a few surprises. If you don’t want to join us for the knitting, that’s fine. You can drop your knockers off any time the store is open. You can download the pattern at www.knittedknockers.org. If you aren’t able to do that, we can help you with one. We hope we can inspire lots of knitters and crocheters to make a pair or two for the women in our community who need them.

SPRING KNIT-A-LONG

This year we’re doing an open KAL rather than partnering with just one company so you have more choices.  We’ll still have prizes from several different companies.  The rules are easy:  you must tell us what you’re making by March 1st, the yarn and pattern must be purchased in the store. you must use at least 400 yards of yarn, and your project must be geared toward spring and summer.  Think lacy scarves and shawls, cardigans and little covers ups, beach wear, cotton socks, sleeveless tops, bags, and summer accessories – the list goes on.  Or make a summery something for someone you love.  Our ending party will be on June 25th at 1.00, so you’ll have to be finished by then.  We’ll eat and knit or crochet and draw for prizes from everyone who finished their project.  There’s no charge for entering and you don’t have to be in a class to participate.  Just buy your supplies in the store and let us know what you’re doing by March 18th.
