The Magalog from Skacel

It's YarnCrawl again!  August 3 - 11, 2013.  We have several special events for you on the Crawl agenda:  First up is a party!  August 2nd we'll kick off the Crawl with an evening of refreshment and yarn-y stuff like new merch featuring a special Chicago Indie dyer; free and exclusive Knit1 knit and crochet patterns along with the designers; shop samples; a trunk show from Skacel (see above) and info about upcoming workshops, classes and study groups.  Festivities start at 6 and go until 8:30.  We will be offering 15% off on all products in the shop (for this night only! 10% off during the Crawl) and you will be able to get your Passport and have it stamped.

Workshops During the Crawl:
Basics of Intarsia
Intarsia is a knitting technique used to add color; unlike Fair Isle, the yarn is not carried across the row.  The process requires twisting the yarns so no hole results.  You will also learn to weave in yarn tails and make butterfly bobbins.
Wednesday, August 7 from 10 - 11AM
Wednesday, August 7 from 6 - 7PM
Cost for the workshop is $10, fee covers the cost of supplies.  
Hint:  Our free knitting pattern involves Intarsia...

Single Crochet Chevrons
Learn the crochet skills needed to make the colorful free crochet pattern I designed as a tribute to Italian fashion icon, Missoni who's plane was found the day I designed this piece.  There are many yarn options for this scarf and I encourage you to come in and explore your options before the class. 
Thursday, August 8 from 10 - 11AM
Thursday, August 9 from 6 - 7PM
This class is free with the purchase of yarn specifically for this project.

Please email or call to reserve a space in the workshops.
