Road To China Light Trunk Show
Dates: Month of May
Fibre Co. carries some amazing yarn, but this one is my favorite. RTCL is sport weight, 65% alpaca, 15% silk, 10% cashmere goat and 10% camel. How can you not love that?! It’s soft and dreamy with rich color and a slight natural shimmer. It’s also light and lofty, which makes it perfect for warm weather projects. We hope you’ll stop in to see these beautiful knits. During the trunk show all RTCL will be 10% off!
Period of Purple Crying Awareness Event
Dates: April 28th - May 26
Purple hats are given to new parents at hospitals along with information on shaken baby syndrome and infant abuse. This information is to prepare them for the fact that baby’s cry and how to handle this new experience. Purple hats are a tangible reminder as they leave the hospital of what they’ve learned.
The Period of Purple Crying cause is especially dear to Kelly Forster, and she’s designed four sweet infant hat patterns to help bring awareness to the program. Patterns are exclusively available at Wild Knits in kits, and you can choose the two kit option or the 4 kit option. A new pattern and kit will be released one week at a time. Among other things, each kit will include the new pattern, yarn to make the hat in the color option of your choice, and extra yarn for a donated hat for local Hospitals. It’s always nice to have a stash of hand knits for that next baby gift, or you may choose to donate both hats. Either way, you’ll feel good about knitting these.
Date: To be determined
We’ve chosen our first book!! Skein, by Christen Mattix, is a story of contemplation, life decisions, and community, all while knitting. I found this book in the local section of Village Books in Bellingham, WA. At that time, my plans for a shop were just beginning to become a reality. When I read this, I knew it was something I’d stock. Christine is a delight and I think you’ll appreciate her story.
"At 34, Christen is unemployed and lonely when, on a whim, she decides to knit a half-mile blue line from a bench to Bellingham Bay, a decision that cracks open a world of social interaction with her lovable and quirky neighbors."

We have books available for purchase, and we plan to start meeting in May. We’ll be in the courtyard (6 feet apart) to talk, share, snack and knit. We’re still welcoming input from you on when you’d like to meet... weekdays, evenings, weekends... so let us know your thoughts.
To help us with ordering, please let us know asap if you’d like a book.

In going with this year's theme of Explore Your Own Backyard, patterns for this KAL were strategically chosen to take you on a virtual scenic route through the beautiful State of Oregon. There are 8 relatively easy patterns, plus 1 bonus pattern, and you get to choose how many projects you complete and what route your road trip takes. We hope you’ll join us for one, some, or all!!
