SIP-N-SOCKS: February 4, 11, 18 & 25; 6-8 pm
February’s sock pattern is the Hellen’s Socks pattern by Fiber Trends (pattern available at Sip-N-Knit)


Monday evenings in February - February 4, 11, 18 & 25; 6-8 pm
Maybe you've seen them, maybe you've heard about them, maybe you don't have a clue what we are talking about... but you will definately fall in love with the Wallaby sweater from Cottage Creations.

This popular pattern has been in existence since 1984. With sizes from children's 2 to Adults "super size" it is seamless, knit in the round and featureing both a "pouch" and a hood (though the hood is optional)...think of a knitted "hoodie"!

All you need to join us in this Knit-A-Long are the Wonderful Wallaby pattern, an assortment of circular and dpn's in the appropriate size, and yarn required to accomplish the size pattern you want to make (all are available for purchase at Sip 'n Knit). You will also need the basic knowledge of knitting (this is not a "how-to" knit class, it is a project knit-a-long) There will be knitters who have made the Wallaby before on hand to help you should you encounter a problem and light refreshments are available through the coffee house. Cost to join us for knitting on Monday nights is a one time fee of $5 (per month)

If you have not seen the Wallaby before, be sure to stop by and see one on display at the Yarn Shop.

MIDDLE OF THE MITTEN FIBER ARTS MEETING: Saturday, February 9; 10 am – 2 pm (with an hour break for lunch)

Selecting and Spinning for Sock Yarn (including fiber preparation) with Cary Smith


Learn tips to help you chose and prepare a fiber; spin and condition a yarn that will hold up to sock-wear. Although geared towards sock yarn, this workshop will be informative to anyone wanting to learn more about making your spinning wheel work for you! COST: $5

LOCKER HOOKING RUG: Saturdays, February 2 & 16, 10am – 2pm
Create a piece of folk art. Locker hooking, using yarn, provides a fun and easy craft similar to traditional rug hooking, but with a twist. The locker hook uses the eye at the end of the needle to draw a string through all the loops you work. This “locks” them in place on the front of the canvas. The fact that the loops lock into place makes the rugs durable, and best of all washable. COST: $30 plus supplies. Class size limited to 10. INSTRUCTOR: Suzanne Bailey

KIDS AFTERNOON KNIT: Monday, February 4, 11, 18, & 25; 3:30-4:30 pm

SOCKS ON A CIRCULAR NEEDLE: Saturday, February 16 & 23; 10am – 2pm
If you have basic knitting skills, like to knit socks and would like to learn a new technique in knitting architecture this class is for you. With your knowledge of the knit and purl stitches, use the magic of two circular needles to create a pair of socks-faster and more gracefully. Join us and fall in love with knitting socks all over again. NOTE: The newer form of circular needles work much better than the ones that coil – Instructor recommends using the Addi-Turbo brand, 24-inch needles. COST: $30.00 plus the cost of supplies (Needles are available and we have some great sock yarns to choose from!) INSTRUCTOR: Amy Mendoza

FINISHING THAT PROJECT: Wednesday, February 20; 9:30am – noon
