Feature of the Week: April 2

Doesn’t this sushi look good enough to eat?  I was salivating over it all weekend at our DFW Fiber Fest booth.

Unfortunately these are much woolier than actual sushi, but they make an amazing display.  We’re taking names of folks who are interested in a Sushi Needle Felting class, so leave us a comment or give the store a call.  We’ll post back once we’ve got all the details figured out.

Class: Socks on Two Circular Needles

Sock knitting is more popular than ever these days.  Small, easily portable and certainly useful in cold weather (if you can imagine colder weather),  there are a number of different methods out there for knitting socks.

We are offering a class on the method using two circular needles to knit one sock.  If Double Pointed Needles are not your thing or you want to try a different technique, Socks on Two Circular needles will help you out.  Once you’ve learned the basic technique of knitting a tube on two circular needles, you will be able to apply it other projects, such as sweater sleeves or  seamless sweaters.

This sock has been knit on two circular needles and is past the heel turn, decreasing down to the foot.

The class meets Friday Aug. 26, Sept. 2, Sept. 9:  10:30 – 12.  Two US 5 needles in the 20″ or 24″ length are required.  Yarn is included in the class fee.  Cost of the class is $85.  Give us a call to register at 972-424-3163.
