Wednesday November 16 –  Yarn Therapy Meditation Knitting
I have been doing some knitting therapy.  I needed some simple knitting that had interesting textures and no pattern. I’m going to call this Yarn Therapy Meditation.  It’s so easy, but you just want to just keep knitting to get to the next textured yarn. This pattern makes a very pretty and soft scarf or cowl your choice.
All you need to know is how to knit, no purling on yarn overs just knit, the yarn does all the rest.
Time: 1:00 pm
Cost:  $55.00 and includes 3 skeins of very soft to the skin yarn (silk & Llama, Mohair, Merino Wool & Acrylic) and pattern. All you need to bring is your 6mm circular needles (the needles need to accommodated 180 to 200 sts) I have kits available for sale in the shop if you want to get and early start.
Thursday November 17 – Needle Felted Mittens
Very easy needle felting on to pre-cut wool fabric. These would make a nice little gift. You can put a hand made gift card in them with some pine/spruce, real of artificial or even an envelope of hot chocolate.
Time 1:00pm
Cost: $15.00
If you have your own needle felting equipment bring it along, if you don’t we can supply the equipment.
