TWO NEW EVENTS AT THE SHOP
WHAT WOULD MISS MARPLE KNIT?
Agatha Christie introduced Miss Marple in 1930 in her book "Murder at the Vicarage". For Miss Marple "knitting was merely a guise, a means of appearing busy while listening to and watching the interaction between charachters, assessing motives, relationships, albis."
On Friday, February 11th, from 7 pm to 9 pm Yarns With A Twist will host "What Would Miss Marple Knit?". The answer: A Shawl, of course. Kai ce Burton has obtained a copy of "Murder at the Vicarage". Join us that evening to sit, knit and listen to this Miss Marple mystery. For those that would like to knit the "Miss Marple Shawl", the September/October 2010 issue of Piecework includes this vintage shawl pattern originally published in Weldon's Practical Needlework Shawls in Knitting and Crochet. Even if you don't want to knit this shawl, but would prefer to work on a current project, please join us for a fun evening.
TOE UP SOCKS
As requested by some of our knitters, Christiane will teach a class on how to knit socks toe up.
When: Tuesday, February 15th, 9:30 am - 11:30 am or
Wednesday, March 1st, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
