Earth Day Market Bag Kit Knitalong

Hello All :)

This Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, we will be hosting a Free Knitalong with the purchase of a Market Bag kit.  You may purchase a premade kit or build your own bag and choose your own colors.  The kit includes the yarn, and pattern, but not the needles.  The needles neccessary for this project are US sizes 8 & 9 16″ circulars and US size 9 DPNs.  The store hours on Saturday are 9am-3pm and knitters are welcome to come and go anytime during business hours.  This is not an instructional class, so please be comfortable with knitting in the round and using DPNs.  There will be support for any questions regarding the pattern.  If crocheters are interested, we have found a crochet pattern that is similar, but has not yet been tested. Karla is working on Saturday and is proficient in both knitting and crocheting.

Farmer’s Market days are just around the corner.  This is a quick knit.  Knit up a few, for big shopping days or as a gift for someone special. We hope to see you soon! Enjoy the warming weather. It’s time for knitting with cottons, hemps, linens, and other amazing non wool fibers.  We have a nice selection here at Happyknits! Stop in for a visit. Sit and Stitch with us….we love seeing you and seeing what you’ve got on the needles! :)
