Amazing Threads - So Many Classes and Project Ideas

We love our community of knitters, crocheters, and fellow yarn lovers!  It is always so much fun to watch people learn to knit and crochet, grow their confidence and skills, and celebrate their progress and projects!


We offer lots of different opportunities to gather, socialize, and learn.  We have classes ranging from learn to knit and crochet to more advanced classes and knit-alongs including sweaters, colorwork and more.  We have open knit/crochet every Tuesday both in the morning and evening.  We also have monthly Friday Night Stitching events where you can have dinner, socialize, and work on your project.  We hope you'll join us at one of our next classes or events!


One of our current knit-alongs is the Drawing Sweater.  Susan shared her progress on this beautiful piece!  She is using Primrose Roan and La Bien Aimee Mohair.


Bonnie shared with us the importance of using color catchers when soaking your finished projects!  When using deep colors or multiple colors you don't want to bleed, it is important to use color catchers when soaking so they absorb any excess dye that might come out in the water.

In the first picture you can see the handknit soaking along with the color catcher sheets in the water.  In the second picture you can the color catchers removed after soaking - notice the blue tint to them.  You can find color catchers in the laundry aisle of your store.

Georgia Farrell just released a new pattern: the Fifteen Hundred Mini Shawl inspired by one of her favorite buildings in Guadalajara, Mexico!

Using two balls of Rowan Alpaca Soft DK, this textured knit will work up quickly!
Rowen Alpaca Soft DK has been a best seller in the Rowan DK line of yarns.  It is an incredible knit which leads to a fabulous accessory or garment. 


Bonnie's goal for 2023 is to finish some works-in-progress!  The first on her list is the Minaret Sweater knit in Farmer's Daughter Fibers Foxy Lady.  This short sleeve sweater will be perfect for Spring!

Bobbi has been busy making beautiful red hats!  The Bankhead Hat knit in Malabrigo Rios is a great hat with a touch of detail to make it special.  The pattern is inspired by a ghost town.  Check out the ravelry page for more detail on the town and inspiration behind the pattern.  Malabrigo Rios is the best yarn for knitting hats and mittens as well as sweaters and more.  All of Bobbi's grandchildren own many!  :)

Keep an eye out for a new hat design by Bobbi next week!


Susan is busy working on her Pressed Flowers shawl in La Bien Aimee Merino DK.  We love the colors she picked out!

How sweet is this crocheted skirt for ages 9 months to 3 years!  Skirt Ciska is crocheted using aran weight yarn.  Consider Sirdar Supersoft Rainbow Drops or Red Stag Fibres Estate Aran.


The Soft + Cushy Hat from Purl Soho is such a classic design.  This ribbed hat is knit in Worsted weight, so Malabrigo Rios and Plymouth Superwash Worsted are perfect choices!

The Lola Throw Blanket is a beautiful, crocheted blanket in Bulky weight.  The pattern consists of two stitches throughout.  Plymouth Chunky Merino Superwash would be a great yarn option.


Another great hat pattern that is perfect for anyone is My Baker's Hat!  A simple ribbed brim and a square decrease makes this worsted weight hat a great knit.  Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Worsted would be a great choice.
