I love knitting. Have you guessed that on your own? Well it’s true. I can’t help myself from always starting that next project! A few days ago we got the newest Botanical Knits book in and before I know it, the needles and yarn were casting on a new shawl. It is ridiculous for sure. I am one chart into Forest Foliage using Rowan Fine Art. So beautiful. The book is $22 and the yarn $60 (for two skeins). I am shipping this for FREE this week. Call to pick your colors and Im happy to ship to you!
This is my version so far and a picture of the “official” shawl….
I’m also adding a few last minute sewing sessions during the week so stay tuned in to all that’s happening on our Facebook page. It really is the best place for up-to-the-minute details.
THIS Friday, I bring back “Bang In Fridays” – you might not know this means call in to work or any other responsibility and come sew and craft with ME! This week we kick it all off making my modified version of the Angela Tote bag.
Join me Friday, July 11 from 10am-12noon $40 includes materials. Please call (617) 265-8013 to pre-register.
For those of you who need some Knitting Help – call to schedule private drop-ins held Wednesday afternoons and Friday days. We also have a Knit 102 Summer Series starting this Friday. Join Shelley from 11am-1pm and get help on your current projects. This is a series designed for knitters with experience. Normally $75 for 4 weeks, our Summer Special gets you the WHOLE Summer for that fee. Shelley will also share a new knitting trick each week to help you along! Call (617) 265-8013 to reserve a seat.
Don’t forget that all Cascade yarn is on sale for 40% off through July 31st!
As usual, we are here Friday nights all summer long! Join us around the table anytime after 6pm and feel free to bring a snack or beverage to share!
Oh – and happy belated July 4th! I am sorry I missed it last week – and hope you enjoyed celebrating our Nation’s birthday!

Binding Off & Casting On
Come join us for a lesson designed to expand your skills in beginning and finishing your projects. We’ll learn news ways to both cast on and bind off our projects including the long tail and the knitted cast on, then move on to the provisional cast on – often used in shawls and to make garments with a hem, as well as a folded picot edge, and a knitted picot edge cast on.
After that, we’ll move to binding off, where we’ll learn how to work a three needle bind off, a sewn bind off, Jenny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off and then finish off with a picot edge.
