Officially, winter might be over one month away, but the current weather is saying it is time to begin knitting hats, mittens, scarves, anything to keep you warm.

Cabin Fever “Need A Hat?” book is chock full of fun hat patterns for the entire family. What makes this book unique is that each pattern is written a variety of yarn weights.
The Top Down Igloo hat in the photo was knitted with Plymouth Encore Coffee Beenz yarn. New to the shop, each skein of Coffee Beenz, has 214 yards. It is a combination of acrylic and wool and is washable.  The cost per skein is also very easy on the pocketbook.

Part II of the current Skacel Toe Up Socks Knit-A-Long will be available on Thursday, Nov. 10th. If you would like to join in, there are still a few skeins of Royal yarn remaining at the shop. Note from Barbara - The combination of merino wool, nylon and cashmere in this yarn is wonderful to work with – so soft. If you are a sock knitter this yarn is definitely one you want to use for your next, or future, pair of socks. I can’t wait to complete my pair and wear – or will they become a Christmas gift? Going to be a tough decision.

The Einstein Coat or Not As Warm Jacket class will meet again this Saturday, November 12th from 2pm to 4pm. We will be ready to begin the top portions of the coat/jacket.  


Maureen G. knitted the following two shawls. The bottom photo is the Wavebird Shawl by Christiane Burkhard.  The top photo is the Triplicity Shawlette, the Knit Purl Hunter knit-along.
