Savannah is Green

ShamrockMarch 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.

 

Groups and Clubs

IMG_0038Our 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.

 

 

Students and Friends

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.

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!

 

Ravelry Adventures

RAvi ladiesRavelry! 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!
