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!
We hope you are all enjoying the summer and surviving the heat! Hooked Knitting is comfortably air conditioned so our knitters have moved from our outdoor seating area to our indoor creative space during the hottest part of the day. Our students are working on all kinds of projects including an afghan, sweater, baby dress, wedge cowl, Drachenfels shawl and so much more! Stop in and see what new creations we're working on.
It's never too soon to start thinking about holiday gifts. Need some inspiration? Join us Saturdays - Tuesdays for our open knitting and crochet venues. Bring in a project to work on or we'll help you pick out a new project. Every day is a great day for knitting or crocheting so come join the fun!
