Designers are rediscovering this delightful technique and with this class under your belt, you’ll be able to tackle these fun patterns. The class, led by Reah Janise Kauffman, will teach how to read a mosaic pattern and work several different patterns. If you can knit and purl, you can do mosaic knitting! When: Saturday, January 14: 10:30 am-12:30 pm Cost: $30 per person, payable to Reah Janise. Class is limited to six people. Sign up to hold your place!

Madelinetosh Yarns have a reputation for quality and beauty. A couple of years ago, we were asked by Madelinetosh if we would like to carry their yarns and of course, we were thrilled. We have a just recently added a new shop sample (our first in Madtosh) made from two skeins of their fingering weight yarn and so we want to celebrate!

Until December 15th, please enjoy 20% off all Madelinetosh Yarns. A skein or two of any of our "MadTosh" yarns make a great gift too - if not for you, for a fiber lover in your life. Currently, we are stocking Tosh Merino Light (fingering), Tosh Merino Light with Glitter or Copper (fingering), Tosh Vintage (worsted) and Triple Twist (aran/bulky).

We knit the Emiliana shawl with one skein of Tosh Merino Light and the other Tosh Merino Light with Glitter. (Some of us like a little sparkle at times in our yarn!) We stopped knitting the shawl before we finished all the yarn to make sure it wasn't too big for wearing in a coat.
