I’ve become obsessed with this bag pattern lately. I’ve made it in Classic Elite Sanotrini, Firefly, and Fibra Natura Flax. I stumbled across it on Ravelry while looking for something entirely different. The Monteagle bag is a great knit and can be found in the Mason Dixon Book. Don’t you need a new market bag?
While rambling through Ravelry I ran across these adorable nap time dolls by Tatyana Korobkova. They would be perfect made up in the Rowan’s handknit cotton or Big Bad Wool’s Weepaca. Both offer such a lovely palette to select from.
My favorite new pattern for little ones is this coat designed by Julie Wiesenberg (cocoknits) It is called Rose and is knit in the most scrumptious yarn by Big Bad Wool. You will love it too. Stop by and grab your favorite color in the Weepaca.
March in Savannah is all about the green. We green our fountains, food and clothing in preparation for one day. Saint Patrick’s Day ! The parade shuts down the historic district for an entire day. We love a party here. So if you find yourself in our area stop by and join us in all of the fun. We will be knitting, crocheting and felting in green this month.
Our Tuesday Craft Night has grown to such a large group that spin off’s are now forming. We have added Thursday night Crochet Group. The second one will be this Thursday from 5-8. A free granny square pattern will be offered each night that will build your skills. Of course it’s similar to our Craft night where you bring your project and hook away.
Another group that has evolved into something more official is “Tea with Carol”. Not only is she British, but she is an amazing knitter. Join her each Sunday from 1-4. We are excited to say that the Savannah Tea Room has teamed up with us to offer their lovely selections. Last Sunday we had Cinderella join us from Disney on Ice. One never knows who may turn up at The Frayed Knot.
Oh the places this little yarn shop has taken me! The rings arrived today from our etsy friends. We plan to party, laugh and dance Saturday evening. To celebrate all in store patterns will be half off Saturday October 26th, 2013.
Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The crisp air returns and so do the students. Savannah College of Art and Design is our local art college located right here within the historic blocks of Savannah. The city comes alive with their arrival. It’s a very exciting time.
Here at the shop we begin receiving our new fall/winter yarns and with each box comes an anticipation of wonderful people and creations to come.
The small sweaters above were created and given to us for display by friends and students who pass through our doorway. Each one comes with a happy memory of someone who has moved on or a smile of someone who is still knitting/spinning/weaving with us daily. They are such a treasured part of our collection. I love how each one represents the person who presented it. Our fiber community is so unique. I look forward to meeting and watching the creative process of each one of you.
Reminder that craft nights are every Tuesday 5pm-8pm and Saturday/Sunday 1-4pm, New to town or just passing through please join us.
Meet Lambert. His creator Alaina Breed is one of the talented SCAD students we have had the pleasure of getting to know this year. Lambert will be hanging around with us through out the summer and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Savannah has already become far more quiet now that the students are packing to leave. Congratulations to all the graduates!
We welcome you to join us for knitting this Memorial Day weekend. We will be open Saturday 10-5, Sunday 1-4 and Monday 10-5. Don’t worry crochet artist and spinners also invited. We love our fiber people.
Ravelry! Such a wonderful source of patterns, advice and friendships. This week we had the honor to encounter a group of women who met in a Ravelry group. After months of online conversations and yarn swaps they decided that they should meet in person. So they chose Savannah. Their energy was intoxicating! I was so inspired that I have now started another shawl project. So keep us in mind for your future meet up’s. We would be happy to host you for a real Savannah knit experience. Thank you ladies!
