• DIY Knitting

A new lesson set starting in Point Grey this Wednesday evening, 7 – 9  p.m.  Learn from a master designer, the talented Emily Wessel, the simple steps to design your own one-of-a-kind knitted items.  Check out Emily’s blog, Damp City Knits (clever name, the City is definitely damp today) and have a look at some of her beautiful designs.  She also posts helpful tutorials from time to time.  Emily’s Chunky Cable Hat , knit with one skein of Malabrigo Chunky, is a free pattern on her site.   Her Photosynthesis Shawl is stunning:


We have the pattern in our stores.

Speaking of free cable patterns, check out Rambling, a new cabled scarf design over at the Spud and Chloe blog.  Grab a couple skeins of Sweater and go crazy for cables.

And we’ve recently added several more new lessons to our  Class Schedule.  Sandra Dunkin starts a new Beyond Beginner Knitting Class in Point Grey this Thursday evening, 7 – 9 p.m.  Jackie Blackmore will teach a Sock Boot Camp in Point Grey on Sunday, August 23, 1 – 4 p.m. Many more lessons will soon be added so be sure to check back regularly if you’re interested in learning a new skill this Fall.
