Glacier Cowl

New crochet class! Julie has designed another stunner - the Glacier Cowl - and she's going to teach you to make it! You will learn the feather and fan stitch while crocheting in the round, as well as a foundation stitch and blocking techniques. Our sample uses Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Silk Single. You can make two cowls from a single skein, so it's a perfect pattern for gifts!
Class time: Thursday, October 23rd, and 30th from 11:30 am until 1:00 pm or from 5:30 pm until 7:00 pm. Call 615-354-1007 to sign up!



Top of the last days of summer with this open stitch vest. Knit in Feza Alp Natural, which is a fun yarn that changes textures as you knit to keep things interesting. You will only need 2 skeins to knit the Oconee.



Moonraker is a cheerful shawl that alternates garter stitch with slipped-stitch stripes for little pops of color. We used the delightful Wayfarer from Made in America Yarns, a 100% wool yarn that is sourced and milled in the US for the main colors. For the color stripes, we used Mountain Colors Crazyfoot, which we have available in mini-skeins. This is a generous sized shawl without being overwhelming, perfect for chilly Fall days!


A Note from Christina, Organizer of Threads of Kindness:

Hello everyone...I'd like to invite you to join a group that is very near to my heart as I know it is for many of you.  We are working to provide hospice patients in middle Tennessee with a blanket or shawl for a little comfort at a time when they may most need it and preemie blankets and hats to many of the Nashville's Neo-Natal units.  If you think this giving opportunity may be right for you, please reach out to us.  We are fortunate to have generous yarn donations from Haus of Yarn helping us along our way and would love to share our stash with you.
