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.

 

 

Blue Sky Alpaca!!!!

blue skyIt 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.

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.

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.
