Knitting ER

 

Have a problem with your project? Drop a stitch you can't pick up? Just want to have someone available that can help in case a problem arises? Come by during our Knitting ER Hours! Every Thursday from 3 to 5pm we will have help available to soothe your knitting woes. $10 per visit.

Stitch-N-Bitch

 

Stitch-N-Bitch is held Wednesday evenings from 5:10 till 7pm, and Thursdays from 2-4pm for the summer (May through October). It is a social knit night so come forge some new friendships and get some knitting done while you're at it! There is a $5 fee which can be paid upon arrival, or you can purchase 5 visits for $20!

KALs

  • Cozy Squozy Cat Class  -
    Come in and learn to make these adorable kitties as ornaments! The class will be held September 2nd from 11am to 4pm and is $35. It includes the pattern, yarn, and a donation to NYSAVE (www.nysave.org) which provides emergency funds for pets in need. Class requires size 1 double pointed needles. Needles are available in store for purchase if you need them as well.
     
    As my own kitty has been recently diagnosed as a diabetic, this is something close to my heart. Fortunately I have the funds to provide the care he needs, but couldn't imagine a situation in which I couldn't and had to make that tough choice, so naturally I'd love to raise some money for those less fortunate than I in similar situations. 
  • Half Moon Tee KAL  - The Half Moon Tee is a crop top that we can easily modify to be full length if a crop is not your jam! Cast On Party is September 14th from 10:30 to 1:30, with two Check Ins on October 12th and November 16th from 10:30 to 12:30, and the Finished Object Celebration is December 14th from 5 to 6pm. We will have refreshments available at all meetings. The KAL fee is $25 which includes your pattern, plus yarn. Yarn is sock weight, 3 colors, and between 3 and 6 skeins depending on size and length chosen. We have plenty of colors and dyers to choose from and are always happy to help you pick colors!
