Fall Happenings

Pictured above are some of the events going on and planned at Needle Nook. The top (not very good) photo is of the knitted beads we are doing in a class on Sat. Nov. 13th from 3-4:30 PM. You will learn how to knit with beads and place the knitting over a wooden bead. Class fee is $30.00 and that includes materials to make 3 beads. Registration is in progress.

The second photo is the Curlicue Blanket (turned into a shawl by Betty). We have had so much interest in this project that we are starting a knitalong on the first Wed. in January, 2011. There will be two options. Wednesday afternoon from 1-2PM or our regular Wednesday knit nite from 5-8PM. We will be working on this at both times. Registration is necessary for this KAL. More information later.

The third photo is the bulky neckwarmers that I knit in two hours. You won't believe how fast you can make this item. Need fast holiday gifts, this is the answer. It's knit on size 15 needles with bulky yarn so it goes quickly. Add a fabulous button and you are done. I'm making these for gifts this year for all the ladies. Purchase the yarn for this project and I'll give you the pattern free.

Also wanted to mention our spooky knit in on Saturday, Oct. 30th at Artuzzi's. We will meet on the patio from11AM - 2PM for some knitting time with friends. Bring a treat to share and Artuzzi's will provide free drinks. You can also order lunch there. Wear your favorite knit item OR a costume to be eligible for door prizes and Needle Nook specials. See you there.
