Knitnews #10: Clever Knits updates for June 2010

Clever Knitters!

Happy Summer! We have been busy knitting up lightweight shawls, socks, and summery garments (I have TWO laceweight sweaters on the needles right now!). Our stock of sock yarn is being constantly replenished, and the number of different lines of sock yarn we carry is always expanding. Sock yarn is GREAT for shawls, baby sweaters, lightweight scarves, lace, and so many other summertime knitting and crochet projects.

1. Special Events - workshops, book signings, parties, and more...
2. Classes - TONS of new classes, including a one-time visit from knit-celebrity Cheryl Brunette!

We have about a million new classes and loads of fun special events coming up, don't miss out! We have EVEN MORE amazing classes in the works for July and August, so keep your ears open. I'm especially excited about the visit from knit-celebrity Cheryl Brunette. She will be in town for her great niece's graduation, and has agreed to spend one day of her weekend with us. On that day - June 19th - we will be offering TWO separate events with Cheryl: (1) an all-day class limited to 12 students in which she will teach you how to design a custom sweater pattern to fit your body, and (2) a 2-hour lecture/book-signing in which she will go over a couple helpful knitting-math skills and we will serve lots of chocolate!
