Free Event!

Class: Knitting a Successful Sweater: 12:30-3:30 pm – Signups Required – $30

Whether you are new to sweater knitting or you are a regular sweater knitter but your sweaters don't always come out the way you hope or expect, this is a great class for you. Class topics will include:

  • Choosing a pattern and yarn that will result in a garment you want to wear (as well as what to avoid when picking a pattern and yarn)
  • Swatching (yes, you really need to do this)
  • Picking the right size to knit
  • Using gauge (which means that you need to measure accurately and trust what you measure)
  • Making use of all the information provided in the pattern (there is a lot there that we overlook)
  • And, blocking (why and how)

I Love Yarn Day!
Friday, Oct. 10 - 10 am-4 pm

The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze will be joining The Knitter's Edge for a very special "I Love Yarn Day!" What better way to celebrate than with a fiber artist and world renowned creator of hand-dyed yarn?! This is a free event with gifts, inspiration, fashion shows, pattern releases and so much more! Rhichard will be available to answer questions, inspire you, and just to chat all day long. You do not want to miss this opportunity.

Heather Zoppetti Trunk Show
Saturday, Sept. 27 - 1 pm

Join us for this free event! We have an awesome Trunk show, Everyday Lace book signing, and Q&A session in store for you. Full of simple garments and accessories for everyday life, this book will become your new favorite! In this collection of 18 garments and accessories, using lace motifs for edging is only...the beginning. Author Heather Zoppetti shows how lace can be easily incorporated into feminine garments meant for daily wear: as a simple panel insert, as edgings and bands, and in an increasingly all-over manner. Simple shaping and construction are the rule here, letting lace take center stage.
