Be Sweet Eclectic 

Fresh off Our Needles: The Be Sweet Eclectic Shawl!

Okay, this one is just plain fun. The Be Sweet Eclectic Shawl is knit entirely in garter stitch with a simple decrease on every other row. This simple but stunning shawl is a must-have, quick to knit and can easily be finished over a weekend. Worked with three skeins of Be Sweet Eclectic (a blend of Mohair and wool), it'll be a surprise watching the fabric emerge with varying shades and textures. We've got four kit colorways to choose from; each kit contains three skeins of Be Sweet Eclectic yarn and a copy of the pattern. Sample is shown in Blue Jeans.


Sock Class 

New Class: Socks on Two Circs!

We've been getting lots of requests for this one...and your wish is our command! Leah is offering a beginning socks class spotlighting the Two Circ method. You'll learn how to knit socks "cuff down." You just need to have basic knitting skills: casting on, knit & purl stitch...and a general knowledge of knitting in the round is also helpful. Saturday, November 11th, 18th (10:45 am-1:45 pm), and December 2nd from 11:45 am until 1:45 pm. Call the shop to register, only a few spots remaining! 615-354-1007
