The last time I was at Darn Knit Anyway, it was a sultry day in Minnesota. The humidity was killer. My face was glistening shortly after stepping out of my air conditioned car.
My guess is that Stillwater, MN in January is just a teensy bit cooler in January than it is in July.
But that doesn't mean we won't have a great time -- in fact, all the more reason to pile on your handknits and join us this Saturday (January 22nd) for our new workshop on yarn substitutions.
This is one of the topics that I get asked about all the time. People want to know, "Will this yarn work with this pattern?" or, "I really want to make this one-eyed, one-horned, giant purple people eater -- will I get gauge with Springvale DK?"
Intrepid readers, I propose a new motto.
No longer will we be shackled by the constraints of our patterns!
We shall make yarn substitutions with confidence!
We'll knit our projects with any darn yarn we want!
And we'll be happy about it!
I invite you to join me this Saturday, January 22nd, at Darn Knit Anyway in Stillwater, MN. The workshop is from 1-4pm, with a trunk show to follow from 4-6.
Registration for the workshop is very limited, so please call or email Darn Knit Anyway soon. The trunk show is free and open to all, but workshop registrants get first pick of the nifty Carpe Yarnem (never to be repeated) colorways. Darn Knit Anyway can be reached via telephone at 651.342.1386, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring your patterns, and we'll find some great yarn possibilities amidst Darn Knit Anyway's sizable selection -- we'll get in lots of hands-on practice, ensuring you can apply what you learn to your knitting every day.
T-minus five days! Who's up for a road trip this weekend?
