Happy Selfish Knitting Season

I hope you enjoyed the holidays and any holiday projects. We love making gifts (most of the time), but January has the feel of having survived, getting back into a routine, and back to our own projects!

Events & Happenings

Love on a Lamb Day

Date: Saturday, February 4, 11:00(ish)-2:00
Cost: Free (But donations for expenses are welcome)

It’s time for our favorite event of the year! Iron Water Ranch from Albany will be bringing baby lambs for squishes, hugs, and all-around happy feels. We’ll be starting at 11:00, but since baby lambs tend to create their own schedule, it may be shortly after. Please check out Iron Water’s website for events the entire family will enjoy, including Lambentine's Day and March Maaaadness! We love their passion for what they do and the creativity they bring to it.

Beginning Knitting Sessions

Date: Call or Email to Schedule
Teacher: Holly Marshall
Cost: $40 if supplies are purchased at Wild Knits

Instead of an actual class, I'm offering Beginning Knitting Sessions. Since everyone learns differently, you can set your own pace. These are small, low-key sessions, allowing you to get individualized help and ask plenty of questions. Also available for groups up to four. 


Beginning Crochet Class

Date: February 11, 10:30-Noon
Teacher: Carol May
Cost: $40
Skills Required: None

Learn single, double and triple crochet stitches as you complete the (appropriately) Single, Double, Triple Scarf! Carol is new to teaching at Wild Knits but has been knitting and crocheting since she was a child. She was taught by her grandmother, put the hooks and needles down for a few years, picked them up again, and hasn't stopped. She does beautiful lace shawls, intarsia, brioche, crochet and Tunisian Crochet.


Ferntail Poncho

Date: February 25 and March 18, 1:00-3:00
Teacher: Kelly Forster, KIS Designs
Cost: $50 (for two 2-hour sessions)
Skills Required: Must be comfortable knitting, purling and working basic increases and 

This KIS Designs poncho was chosen as one of Cascade Yarn's top 22 patterns for 2022! Learn the basics of knitted lace, with an emphasis on creating and maintaining straight edges set against variable texture, decreasing, increasing, and chart reading. Knit in chunky weight yarn, you'll finish in no time!
Calla Lily Shawlette

Date: March 11, 10:30-12:30
Teacher: Carol Herman, Knit Equals Joy
Cost: $ 45
Skills Required: Knitting, with a basic understanding of increasing and decreasing

This pattern has been incredibly popular, so we're offering the class again! You'll perfect cabling while making a beautiful shawlette. The cabling occurs only in the panel, so it's a short period of concentration combined with more relaxing knitting. The kind we love!


New Inventory

In my eternal quest for unique inventory, I came across these head mount kits by Sincerely Louise. Our shipment should arrive at the end of the month. So be on the lookout for Unicorns, Highland Cows, Triceratops, Rams and Sheep (oh my)!
I love wool in all its forms! These sweet Corrine Lapierre kits are made with wool felt and are a fun change when your hands need a break. We're expecting a shipment of wool felt sheets, books, and kits near the end of the month.
Chain Row Counters
Another fun item you may be hearing about are Chain Row Counters by Twice Sheered Sheep. You'll no longer need to take your hands off your needles to click a row counter or mark a tally. If you have a minute, watch the video. These are both simple and brilliant at the same time!
Saving the best for the last, New Yarn!! We have three bases coming from Quince & Co. Phoebe (top) is a 100% extra-fine Merino DK weight, Tern (bottom left) is a 75% American wool/25% silk fingering, and Crane is a 50% super kid mohair/50% extra fine merino worsted weight. Quince & Co was created by knitwear designer Pam Allen, who works directly with mills to produce a yarn sourced in the US that meets her high standards. We can't wait to get this on our needles!
Thank you for your commitment to small business and this Local Yarn Shop. Whether looking to buy or only for inspiration, we hope you'll stop in and say hi. Holly
