  • Ready for the holidays?

    0 comments / Posted by Marlys Vaughan

    Maybe you're thinking it's too early to start thinking about the holidays, or the weather is too hot, or that you'll have plenty of time...later to work on those holiday gifts. But there are a lot of projects you can start now that aren't bug and cumbersome and that you can take along on vacation and get a little done on a rainy day (not that it's going to rain on your vacation) or in the quiet of the evenings. 

    Stop in and see all the new ideas we've come up with! We always have a shawl on the needles (or hook, if you're a crocheter) and many more projects in the works. Take a peek at the acorn, pumpkin and pillbox hats! They work up quick and make great projects for those on-the-go! And as always, we've got new yarn arriving so be sure to ask "what's new" when you stop in to see us!

  • Knit or Crochet .... or a little bit of both?

    0 comments / Posted by Marlys Vaughan

    We have knitters and crocheters here at Hooked!

    It's good to know a little bit about crocheting, even if you are a steadfast knitter. There are many patterns that require a little bit of a crocheted edge to accent the piece. Here at Hooked Knitting, we offer classes in both knitting and crocheting! And although we strongly encourage our clients to learn the art of crochet, we also offer services such as assembling the final garment or product, and adding the crocheted edging to an item. Stop in with your project and let's talk about it!
