We are so excited to include our crocheters in this month’s project. Beginning this Wednesday, April 8, at 5 pm we will be creating felted yarn bowls that you will use again and again. And, since it’s soft, you’ll even be able to easily take it with you to use wherever you go. We will continue working on our bowls on Aprils 15 and we will conclude the project with a “Felting Party” on April 22 (location TBD).

More Fun on the Horizon

Our next KAL begins on April 29 and continues through May 13. We will be making handy market bags using the pattern for the Ilene Bag by Hannah Ingalls on Ravelry. Beginning May 20, we will knit a wonderful summer-weight sweater. The pattern is top-down, so there is no seaming! You can purchase the pattern in the shop, but for a sneak preview click here Knit and Crochet Alongs are always free when you purchase your materials at Yarn & Thread Expressions. And, don’t forget, you’re always welcome to join us for the Sit ‘n’ Stitch Thursday evenings from 5pm – 7pm.
