We’re proud of you!

Standard

Be very proud of what you have made!We hear a lot of people get down on themselves for producing an ill-fitting garment, not having the “right” gauge and tension, selecting the wrong yarn for a project, and a multitude of other things.

We have a secret: we’ve been there, too. These sorts of things have only helped  to make us better knitters and crocheters, though.

Before you get to this point, come into the shop with your project or issue and let us help! We’d love to get you on the right track and cheer you on. We know you can do it!

If you need a little extra attention, we have clinics throughout the week where you can get more focused assistance from an instructor. Call the shop for dates and times and to get registered in advance: 612-925-2454.

There’s a small one-time fee of $5 to help us pay for classroom materials & snacks, but otherwise we just want you to hang out with us! Register online or call the store at 612-925-2454 to save your seat.

Extended Stitches Workshop with Bente Geil

Standard

We were so fortunate to host a class & reception with Bente Geil of Geilsk Yarns on Friday afternoon. She inspired us with a  few different ways of rethinking some texture in our knitting, including cables and a Bloom motif.

Bente shared licorice candy with us, which she explained was everywhere in Denmark – and cute with her company’s logo printed on them!

Laura modeled our shop sample of one of Bente’s pattern, Comfort Piece.

After class, we relaxed and chatted about our projects. It’s so nice to get a fresh perspective from a pattern designer! Thanks for the fun afternoon, Bente – and thanks to everyone who joined us!

What inspires you?

"I can...be inspired by a certain fold in a skirt, or a sweater wrongly buttoned." - Bente Geil

We’re so excited to host a class & social reception with Bente Geil tomorrow night (Friday the 26th) at 3pm. For the class, she will also be specifically covering various kinds of stitches to enhance to your knit work – which means we’ll get a peak into how she comes up with her beautiful garment designs!

Are you interested in joining? Call the store at 612-925-2454 to ask about reserving your seat.
