Sock Class!

I have just added a sock class to the schedule.

Saturday September 15th, 1 - 5 PM
Cost: $20 (plus materials)*

You will be making a miniature sock that could be used for a Holiday season decoration or a key chain. While making the sock you will learn to cast on on double pointed needles, turn a heel, decrease for toes and kitchener stitch.

Email me at or leave a comment or pop into Kniterary to register.
(*I will have the material cost set this coming week).

As soon as the Web Master allows me to update my web site it will be done!!!

Lots of new visitors to the shop today. Most of them found out about the shop through a friend. Keep on passing the word! Thanks to all of you who have!

Fall Yarns!

It has been a fun few days at Kniterary!
New Yarn is arriving and I am unwrapping gleefully and putting the yarn out on the shelves.

First to show off is the Noro. Two wonderful shades of Kureon. Colours are spectacular and it is feltable. I have copies of a Noro Felted Purse Pattern for anybody who is interested.

The other Noro that I brought in is featured in a few Noro Pattern books that are also new.

Also in! Kaffe Fasset Sock yarn!! The colours are beautiful!! Very Painterly. The two colour mixtures are called Mirage and Landscape. 6 colourways of each

so it is possible to have unmatched matching socks!!

Last for today is the Uruguay Malabrigo. Hand dyed 100% wool yarn in these three stunning colours. They have to been seen in real life to get the full effect.

That is all for today! More to show you tomorrow!

Knit Camp 2007

The first Kniterary Knit Camp

is over!!
One young lady took part this year. She made her own knitting needles, dyed her own yarn and knit 3 items.
Here she is showing her 1st item, a headband, and her last item, a pouch.
I sent her on her way starting to knit a scarf with her hand dyed yarn.

While demonstrating koolaid dying and knitting techniques I completed this pouch as well. It was her gift for a job well done.

I will be offering the camp again next summer!

All The Knews Most of the TIme

Hi all! I know some of you have been reading my personal blog IN A SkNIT for a while. Well I have decided to separate my personal blog from store news. I seem to put alot of family stuff on my original blog and I feel that I need to have a blog dedicated soley to the happenings at Kniterary.

It is Friday and I have brought in some lovely Gladiolas today. Glads are the happiest of flowers don't you think!

Fall orders should be starting to come in during the next few weeks. I am excited to recieve them because most of the items were ordered in June and I can't remember what I got for the most part.

I remember that I am bringing in the new Kaffe Fasset sock yarn line. The colours, as you would expect, are beautiful. I saw an ad for the yarn in the latest Vogue Knitting.

Yarn is also coming in from the Mirasol Project. The yarn is from Peru and the money made from the sales is going to improve education and childcare for the children of the poor Sierra region.

I have finished the samples for the felted bowl class and will be posting the picures of the pre and post felted looks soon.

Sit N' Knit continues on Friday evening fro the rest of August and will change back to Thursday evenings in September.

Have a good week end. Drop by if you are in the area!
