28 September 2012

Fall is upon us and the days are filled with much to do.

I've been receiving my fall yarn shipments. New items and yarn are arriving weekly.

DON'T FORGET THE FALL PORCH PARTY THIS SATURDAY THE 29th. It will be all day and the weather looks like it will be perfect for porch knitting. Cookies and tea will be available as always. Come share your work and ideas with others and have a great time meeting other knitters and stitchers.

The knitting with Swarovski Crystals classes are almost completely booked. The only openings left are in the afternoons after the first class finishes.  And, there are just a few openings. If  you wanted to take the class and were hesitating I would suggest making a decision quickly. I really hate to disappoint a knitter.

Yes, I will be offering the class, several times, after the first of the year. So you will have future opportunities.  I did leave off  the cost of the class - sorry. The cost of the Bead knitting and Swarovski class is $35, not including the cost of materials.

The last question frequently asked is, "How much are the crystals?" The cost of a gross (a gross is 144) of crystals, which is what you need for the scarf, ranges from $17 - $29 dollars depending on the color.  One ball of lace weight yarn will knit at least two scarves.

Hope to see many of you this Saturday.
