NEW CLASS – KNIT SOCKS WITH MINDY
FROM BEGINNER TO ADVANCED

Let's all start with a basic sock.
January - February sock:
Rye
socks are perfect for new sock knitters because of the heavier yarn and classic construction.
Rye Light
is a basic sock in fingering weight yarn.
Both patterns are sized for the whole family.
This is a traditional sock - a top down sock with a flap and turn heel - loads of basic beginner techniques to learn.
Thursdays: 1PM - 3PM or 4:30PM - 6:30PM
Cost: $60.00 for 2 hours of instructions
(yarn must be purchased at the shop)

The first hour covers everything you need to get started.
The second hour is additional instruction for those who are ready to move to the next step of the pattern. We offer flexible scheduling for second hour.
Pay for the whole class now, and schedule the second Thursday hour when you are ready for the next step.


Each month Mindy will start a new class. Each sock pattern is chosen to teach new sock-making techniques.
Join us each month, or create your own adventure. Mindy will design a class with your requests.

Specialty Services

Custom patterns
Bring us a sweater that you love, or bring us a photo of a garment. Pick a yarn, make a gauge, and we'll create the pattern. Prices start at $35.00 per garment. Need help resizing a pattern for a custom fit, or need help gauging a pattern for a different yarn, we'll do the math. Prices start at $10.00 per garment.

Need help finishing those UFO's? (un-finished-objects)
Working on a project from you stash, purchased elsewhere, or one of those projects that has been hibernating so long that you're completely lost?
For a $45.00 one-time fee per project, we will answer your questions, and teach you what you need to know, through the completion of your project. Help during store hours will be interrupted as we cannot provide undivided attention. If you are willing and patient, we are happy to spend time with you.

Gifts For All Who Need


Come see what we're making!
And when we're not making samples for the shop, we're making 7" x 9" rectangles, knit or crochet, (machine washable yarns preferred.) We have volunteers who are assembling the rectangles into blankets of all sizes for Binky Patrol. The finished products are given to all-who-need. (Binky Patrol also loves your scraps.)
