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.
It is true. So many of you requested we carry the line of yarns from Blue Sky Alpaca. I’m happy to report our first shipment is here. Metalico is so soft and shimmery. We knit it up in a cute cowl and it only takes two! All color options of worsted cotton and 100% alpaca sport fill our shelves. My current favorite is the Royal Alpaca line. The patterns are just priceless.
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.
Don’t you just love this time of year? Boxes have been arriving daily with wonderful new yarns! We are so excited to bring on board many new vendors this season. Cross your fingers that our shopping cart will be up soon. We can’t wait to offer you these beautiful selections on line. Of course you can always call. We ship worldwide.
I am in love with these simple handcrafted crochet hooks by Evan Stolatis. They are so nice to hold in your hand. Each one is unique and make the perfect gift for the crocheter in your life. Stop by and select the special one today.
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.
Here is to using what you have. Our instructor Anastasia has created a inspirational and fun class on Rag Rugs. She can show you how to prepare your t-shirts/sheets/fabric and make them into beautiful rugs. See our class schedule for the dates and times. The above image is from a wonderful crafting magazine that happens to highlight this process. Great resource of ideas.
Living in a tourist town has allowed me the opportunity to meet so many amazing people. One day a well tailored lady ran into the shop clutching a ball of bright purple/orange yarn. She then presented me with two straws. Dangling between the straws was this very beautiful hand dyed yarn. She had been stuck at the airport and in desperation used two drink straws to begin her project. We determined that drink straws were a US 8 sized needle and so we thus proceeded to transfer the project onto the needles. Well, this has got me thinking………..What is the most unusual item you have used as tools to crochet or knit?

We just love this wool wash. Simple to use and such lovely smells. Or we carry the no scent for those who prefer. A must try for all of your hand knit/crochet needs. We think you will just love it too.
Only one skein of Cascade Fixation is needed to create these fun flip flop socks. Great summer quick project. We are all wearing them with our sandals.
