Our anniversary party was a huge success! Thank you all for coming to support the shop. The yarn bombing also turned out great. Stop by to see your handiwork on our handrail!
The yarn bombing has created a mystery that we really want to solve, though. This beautiful crochet flower turned up, and we have no idea who donated it! If this is your work please let us know so we can thank you properly!
If you enjoyed this yarn bombing, we have another one coming up! Downtown Urbana will be celebrating trees on Saturday, October 13. Donate your old, unloved handknit sweaters to help us decorate Klose Knit's trees. With your help we will really be able to put something special together!
Brigitte has just finished her sample of the lovely Firefly Shrug. You can get this pattern for free when you buy two skeins of Pashm by Kate Wright Designs. This is the most wonderful, squishy, soft and bouncy yarn we've come across yet, and it comes in amazing colorways to boot! Come check out our sample and the yarn, you won't be sorry you did.
We have beautiful new samples from the Little Book of Little Sweaters. If you like the look of these sweaters, sized for American Girl or other 18" dolls, come sign up for one of the classes! There are patterns for all skill levels, including knitters who have never made a sweater before.
If you'd rather knit a sweater for a teddy bear than a doll, you're in luck - Brigitte has just finished a new Teddy Bear Sweater pattern, which you can get free at the shop! We even have bears for sale! Buy one of these sweet teddies and dress him in lovely sweaters made from your leftover yarns in any color you like.
Come see our newest amazing yarn: Beaded Silk Sequins Light by Artyarns. It's silk with tiny sequins and Murano glass beads. The sparkle on this yarn is incredible! And it comes in many different shades, sure to appeal to anyone who likes a little glamor in their knitting.
We look forward to seeing you in the shop soon! Don't forget to check out the new Malabrigo! Until then, happy knitting!
