Beginning Beading - Class is Cancelled, but Kits Still Available

Many of you have expressed an interest in learning how to knit with beads, so we have decided to have a Beginning Beading class making the "Luminosa cowl".  In order to participate in this FREE class, you'll need to purchase your supplies at Castaway Yarns & complete the initial knitting. 

Materials:  Beading Kit includes the pattern, beads, crochet hook, and Luminosa yarn in your choice of color.  (Beading Kit cost = $29.95)

Dates/Times:  Cancelled due to CDC's Recommendation of 6' Social Distancing.

Several of these kits are still available for purchase.  

The following video is great for showing you how to put beads on as you knit:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=15OjUpcvXeY

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.
