What on earth is Steeking?
Have you ever wanted to learn how to steek? In knitting, steeking is a shortcut used to knit in the round. After completing the stitching, a straight line is cut, in order to make room for an opening or place to attach another piece. Don’t be scared of this technique! This class will guide you through the process -you chose a toothy 100% wool yarn and learn how to use the Knit Assist Ring that tensions the yarn separately, so you don’t have to fight with the separate strands. Then you will get your scissors out to steek your Mug Cozy.
Class dates TBA in November.

Socktober is in full Swing
How many socks can one finish in October? Are you one that sets a goal or do you just want to take it easy while knitting or crocheting a pair?
We all set goals! Some of us don’t like to have more than one work in progress. Due to the feeling of being overwhelmed. Then there’s those of us that have cast on -itis. We just need to enjoy what we are knitting or crocheting. The sense of accomplishment is the most rewarding. It’s what keeps us loving our craft.

Meet Natalie Pelykh
Natalie is a Ukrainian knitwear designer. We have chosen her to highlight her throughout the YARN CRAWL.
Natalie fell in love with knitting when she was 4 or 5 years old, watching her mom’s knitting. She loved to sit close to her and follow stitches that were running from one needle to another. It was like a miracle for her! At that time her mom showed her knit and purl stitches and she was really happy knitting scarves for her teddy bears and dolls!
As a student, she was making lots of sweaters for herself and my friends. The real passion for knitting came to She when became a mom. With the birth of her kids knitting has become a major hobby for her, a real relaxation and a special world of discovery and adventure. At the same time she had a desire to create her first design. As for every mom, her children are her world. Everything that she does in her life, she does first of all for them! And, of course, also knit first of all for them. :) They are her main inspiration in creating new designs.
