Our Christmas Fair was a Wonderful Success this year. I was worried, so many other Fairs I'd heard about recently, did not do as well as in the past. Times are tough, people are planning on a Hand/Home Made Christmas...What better place to Start Looking for Gifts...Local Artists and ALL Hand Made!!!! Well....My Loyal Patrons and Brand New Ladies did NOT disappoint us at all!!! We had a Great Turn Out BOTH Days. Usually, Sunday is quiet, everyone going to Church, having a Family Dinner/Day...then getting ready for the Work Week. Well, we were Very Pleasantly Surprised...Sunday was just as busy as Saturday!!! WE THANK YOU ALL, those who came by, shopped and made our Holidays so much Brighter!!! Many Familiar Faces but MANY NEW and excited Faces who just discovered AKG...Great Signs for the New Year!!!!Again, Thanks to ALL who came by...SENDING YOU Our Warmest Holiday Wishes.
I had Bob pull the Raffle Ticket for A Knitter's Garden Door Prize on Monday Evening.....Margaret O'Brien is the LUCKY WINNER.....PLUS, since she lives in Stoneham, MA...Bob HAS to personally deliver the Gift!!!!!

Diagonal Sweater Workshop...

Here are three pictures of the Diagonal Sweater we are making together. The pattern is not difficult but it is a challenge...NOT a Bad Thing!!! I have made one, it lives here in the shop. I love wearing it. I made it in 100% Wool...My next was going to be mostly Acrylic for Washability but I fell in love with a bunch of Handspun Alpaca while on our Knitting Retreat last month. It just happened to find it's way home with me!!! Can't wait to start it!!!
Most of the women interested, prefer class in the afternoon, I'm aiming for the middle of May...Either on a Thursday or Friday from 1:00 to 3:00...There is a $20 deposit due at time of registration, followed by $20 for each session, I am planning on four or five weeks, your last session is your deposited $20. The pattern is available for an additional $8.00, either from me or from Ravelry. It can not be viewed otherwise. Designer's rules not mine!! I will give you a list of supplies once you have registered and made your deposit.


I know this is going to be great fun to knit...Like other workshops...There is a Limit of 5 students. Depending upon requests, I may repeat this workshop in the evening as well...What evening...I do not know, there aren't many to choose from!! We'll work on that as it happens!

As always...Questions...Comments...You know how to reach me!!!

...The Largest Pic, and most Colorful is an array of Many Sox Yarns.
Below: The Beginning of the Actual Toe working upward.
Pic Above: Further Progress of a toe up sox.

A KNITTER'S GARDEN is offering a Sox Class...As most know, we have a Purling Petals Guild Meeting twice a month, the 1st and 3rd Weds nights...Well, I've been asked to hold a Sox Class on the other Weds nights.....On the 2nd and 4th Weds Evenings... Classes will run from 6 to 8....They will begin on May 11th and 25th for $40 each month, paid in full at the first class. I have taught MANY classes and I understand, everyone NEEDS my attention...I am limiting classes to 5 Students, this allows plenty of personal time! Please register in advance to assure your place at the table. I plan to continue these classes throughtout the summer. A different sox will be taught and that pattern will be included at each class. Toe Up Pattern will be our first lesson.

Supplies needed for class:
1: 2 SETS of #2 Double Pointed Needles...We will be knitting BOTH sox individually
but at the same time!So you will need at least 7 #2 needles to achieve this.
2: Most patterns call for approx. 400 yards of Sox Yarn, this pattern is NO different!
3: Two coil safety pins or locking stitch markers.
4: Two regular stitch markers.

Supplies may be purchased here before class, and is greatly appreciated. Should you already have sox yarn, please divide it into 2 equal balls. Saves time for knitting.

Any Questions...Comments...Please Call Joanne at 603-887-8550
Until Then..."Keep Those Needles Clicking!"
