So many changes are happening! Changes can be so difficult.
Not many of us like to embrace change. Some of us love to stay in that “comfort zone” as much as we possibly can. Our "comfort zone" is safe.
"If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living!" This is one of my favorite quotes!
On that note, there are some changes happening in the shop! Lot's of new fall yarns have come in. The shop is stocked! Come on in and see what is new!
Sit & Knit days are lively as ever! Tuesday from 4-7 PM and Thursday from 11 AM - 1 PM we have a couple of great groups that come in to sit and knit and chat. It's FREE! Anyone is welcome to join in either time, or both!
Well, continue to read on to see some great things happening over the next couple of months. We have info on classes, community events, KAL info, and holiday hours!
This December, unleash whimsy and playfulness. I’ve crafted an experience full of gnomes, surprises, and fun! That’s right, it’s a holiday mystery gnome knitalong! Come celebrate Longest Gnight with the gnomes
You’ll get an email every day from December 1st through 24th. On some of those days you’ll open it up to find a clue – a small bit of knitting instructions for the next step in the gnome. The other days will bring charming stories, special treats, and a recipe or two for traditional gnomish delights. After the 24th a few more surprises will come your way but all the gnome knitting clues will be done.
A gnome named Gnova has just moved to the Grimblewoods and is worried about making friends while young Gnewt is taking over the handmade gift exchange this year. What can possibly go wrong?
