This may seem like the longest winter ever, but we’re in the middle of the shortest month SO LET’S CELEBRATE! It’s also Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, the Winter Olympics, St. Louis’ 250th Birthday, & Go Red for Women’s Health. How could we resist getting in on the action?
February is the only month without 30 days, so we’re celebrating by offering you 30% off select wool & wool blend yarns. Choose a heart-warming red, snowy white, chase-the-winter-blues-away, gold/silver/bronze metallics–we’ve got everything you need for your own yarny celebration.
That’s right, one of our favorite knitters, blogger/designer/ teacher Franklin Habit will be our first guest of 2014. He’ll give a talk on Friday, January 24th at 7pm, and we’d love to have you here too. Franklin is always entertaining and inspiring–check out his website http://the-panopticon.blogspot.com/ if you don’t believe me!
What does he have in store for us on this evening?
Impractical Magic: The Other Side of Weldon’s Practical Needlework
Beginning in the 1880s, and for decades thereafter, the editors of Weldon’s Practical Needlework provided an enormous audience of amateur craftswomen with patterns for garments designed to be warm, strong, long-lived and, well, practical. But Weldon’s had another side, too. A side that proposed the knitting of covers for tennis balls, of knitting whips for children, and of covering open flames with crinkled tissue paper. In this illustrated talk–not for the faint of heart–we’ll take a look at what our great-great-grandmothers got up to after they’d already knit a sufficiency of Socks for Invalids. Warning: May induce seizures in persons with good taste.
Tickets are only $15 and include a $10 coupon for yarn purchased that night only. Space is limited (yes, even our new place has some limits!), so call soon to reserve your place.

Come by the shop to work on our ongoing community blanket project.
Everyone can do this, even beginners. We’re working simple garter stitch squares in the new Gemstones yarn. You are encouraged to as many rows as you want to (it’s kind of addictive), but even one row will help.
