Hello Close Knitters!

Happy New Year! That was fun wasn't it? All that weather, all that knitting over the cold, snowy holiday, and all that new yarn! We opened Close Knit's doors every day through all that challenge! It brought home the idea that Close Knit is "The Neighborhood Yarn Shop". All of you walked, sledded, or slid into our doors. It was a fun, hectic change of pace for sure. With all that said, we want to thank you for all your continued patronage through the weather storms and the economic storms! It feels good to produce with our hands these days, even more than usual doesn't it? Anyway, our shop is all about you and your support that keep Close Knit in the neighborhood. Again... thank you!

Finally, we are sending you the new class list. Kids are back in school, we can slow down a little, consider a new project for ourselves. Take a class by golly!

We are repeating some of the classes that folks just can't get enough of and welcome back some amazing talent to teach. We have some new classes too... check it out.

Laura Irwin is teaching another class (yeah!) featuring some ideas she has in her new best selling book, "Boutique Knits". We had to turn some folks away last term for Laura's class, cause we filled up fast. If interested, sign up right away!

Leigh Radford's book "Alterknits Felt" is a masterpiece of felting projects! We welcome Leigh back as well with another fun felting workshop! Look for Leigh's class and give us a call to sign up.

Sara Lucas is teaching her felted bag, The Labyrinth Carpetbag featured in Interweave Holiday "08. Sara is the author of several knitting design books including " Holiday Knits" and "Baby Knits Kit".
