Easter Week

I hope you have some fun stuff planned for Easter Sunday.  Knitting Fairy will be closed Easter Sunday but I will stitch and think of you all while I have some fun with the family.

We will be here, waiting to help you with your knitting, crochet and spinning needs Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week following our normal business hours.  We will have Drop-in Knitting class this Thursday night from 7-9pm.  The cost is just $10/person and all are welcome.  Want to learn HOW to knit? This class is perfect for you.  No pressure, learn at your own pace.  Advanced knitters with technical questions are welcome too, just bring your knitting and get back on track.

Saturday we have two classes this week.

Look What The Stork Brought is an ongoing series of classes taught by Betty Kay.  The project that starts this week is Booties.

Guarenteed To Stay On Booties:

Can be made to fit any baby’s foot from the tiniest baby to a busy toddler.  You select the size you want to make and yarn weight (fingering, sport or DK) and double pointed needles to give you a firm gauge.  (for Preemies use fingering and 0-1 dpn.) Homework:  Make the sole of the first bootie, which is also your gauge swatch. Cast on 10 stitches with selected yarn and needles.  Knit 40 rows (20 ridges) in garter stitch. Measure.  (Newborn’s feet are about 3″, 12 months about 5″) When you have the size bootie sole you want you are ready for class!

Class is Saturday, April 23rd from 10am – 12pm.  The cost is $15.  Please call or email to reserve your spot.  (214)412-2889 or  Go ahead and leave a message on the phone, we will call you back!

Also this Saturday Alissa will be teaching Bind off Options from 1-3pm.  Tired of the same old bind off? Wish you knew something that would work better, be more flexible or hold its shape? This class is for you!  In this one, two hour, class we will be learning 12 different bind offs.  Your knitting will never be the same again!  Cost of the class is $15/person, no homework required but you will need to bring needles and yarn to class or purchase on the day of class.  Again, call (214)412-2889 or email to reserve your spot.
