Classes & Events
Holiday Knit-A-Long (KAL) – The "Pippin Cowl" by Martin Storey, the "Pearl Lattice Hat" by Susan Gressman and the "Pearl Lattice Mitts" also by Susan Gressman.
For our Holiday KAL, we've chosen 3 patterns you can pick from. You can choose to do one or all of them for yourself or to give away as gifts. :-) These patterns will help you learn how to do cables and read charts.
You can choose from the "Pippen Cowl" by Martin Storey, the "Pearl Lattice Hat" by Susan Gressman and/or the "Pearl Lattice Mitts" also by Susan Gressman. All patterns call for DK-weight yarn and have corresponding cable patterns, making them a matching set.
We will begin on Sat. Nov. 16, from 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm, so please come get your pattern and pick out your yarn prior to then.
We will be meeting on Wednesdays (12:30 pm - 2:00 pm) and/or Saturdays (1:00 pm - 2:30 pm) through Wed., Dec. 18.
*Your cost to participate in the KAL is FREE when you purchase the yarn from us.

Want to Make Baby Hats or Twiddle Muffs For Others?
Thankfully we have people that make baby hats that are donated to local hospitals! Shown are just a few of the ladies that love to make baby hats – Stephanie (top left), Linda (top right), and Cindy (bottom left). THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! After being on the receiving end of these wonderful gifts when our granddaughter was in the hospital, I know the tremendous impact these can make. If you would like to make baby hats, we have some free patterns at the shop from the Mid-Missouri Knitting Guild. After you complete the hats, you can leave them here, where we have an angel that takes them to where they need to go.
Also, we have people that make Twiddle Muffs for donations (shown in the bottom right corner). These are invaluable for dementia patients, as the decorations give them something to do with their hands and calms restless impulses. We also collect these at the shop and will get them to those who need them. See a knitted Twiddle Muff free pattern here https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/twiddle-muffs and Shirley MacDonald's Crocheted Twiddle Muff free pattern here https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/twiddle-muff.
