<![CDATA[New in Shop!]]>Tue, 13 Aug 2019 12:06:11 GMThttp://kideweknot.com/blog/new-in-shop

Crochet Days!

Who are we kidding? Like we only crochet during the day! Ha!
Heather has Half a Granny Square Shawl on her hook, using BC Garn Bio Shetland. Changing colors every row is extremely motivating! The 5 colors rotate in a more random kind of repeat, which is also very amusing. And you know how much she loves DC an CH. We are thinking that it is a fun car project for the family's last get away before school starts. Look for progress on this one!

Love Amigurumi?
Our new boxes of Happy (how perfect is that name?) contain 50 colors of DK cotton, 47 yards per cute little bon bon.
Always have the perfect little splash of color! And you know how much Heather loves to have all the colors.
Looking for a little inspiration for your next project? We made a bundle in Ravelry for you to peruse.
All are available for in shop purchase or FREE!

We enjoyed the BeeKeeper so much last year, We are super excited for another sweater frenzy this summer!
The Foxtrot cardigan pattern is ready for preorder when you CLICK HERE to go to Ravelry, and/or it is available for in-shop purchase.
We are using Worsted Merino Superwash. Choose the Hand-dyed for lots of speckle-y goodness or a solid for classic qualities. Swatch in any color and we will special order the color you want (70 solids, 4 hand-dye!) if we don't already have it in stock. Heather's size calls for 6 hanks.
The KAL begins officially July 4 and finishes July 18. Most of us will be a bit more leisurely, but all of us will have a beautiful new sweater for the fall! Happy Swatching.

After-Thought Heels

 Socks! I love socks. And sometimes, it is nice just to crank them out. A service that we are beginning to offer is just that! Heather will crank you 64 stitch tubes from standard sock yarn that you can then add heel, toe and cuffs to fit you perfectly!
Cut that tube! Learn where, when and how to cut your tube to place a heel in this class about After Thought Heels. We will use a much larger than sock size tube to get the hang of and take the fear out of cutting into our knitting. The tube is provided, but you need to bring (or purchase) your needles for the small circumference. Sign up for the Saturday, March 23, 2019 class HERE.
