Happy New Year & New Classes

Happy Boxing Day

Good Morning,

How are you faring after all the frivolities? Have you made it through and you are still sane?

I hope you had a wonderful, healthy and happy time.

Today is Boxing day in the UK, so they are still celebrating. Probably not in the way that they used to in by gone days though. Perhaps some of the Royals and gentry still may, not being one of them I wouldn’t know.

Such a Full & Busy Year

Sonoma County Knitting ClassesIt has been an extremely busy year for us. The first 6 months were spent traveling and getting back into the groove from the travels, that was quite a challenge. I am happy to report though that my mum is still doing pretty well. All recovered from her falls and such. I don’t want to tempt fate here.

Lesley getting pregnant and giving birth to lovely little Lilly. Yarn Hop, sheering, all sorts of things have kept me on my toes. The increase in business, thank you so much for that, ensures we will be sticking around. So many new knitters and crocheters, joining us and reaping the benefits of the art. It is great to see so many new enthusiasts.

It is also great to see so many new and older, not old, faces. Some I only get to see once or twice a year while they are on vacation or passing through town. After almost 6 years now it is so lovely to see everyone, now friends and family of Yarnitudes. Thank you so much for being one of them. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without you!

 

Happy New Year & New Classes

Sonoma County Knitting Classes

So, what do we have in store for next year? We are still in the planning stages; however, we do have some classes lined up, the list is below. The dates, times and requirements will be on the website as soon as we can get it organized, if you are interested in any or all, you can call for details and we will let you know as soon as they are finalized.   Be one of the first to secure your spot and make sure the class does in fact go ahead. If we don’t have enough people unfortunately we cannot do the class. Unless noted differently there is a 2-person minimum and a 4-person maximum per class.

Our Free Pattern Share

Sebastopol Knitting StoreWe have tried to share our favorite free patterns with you on  a weekly basis. For this week since it has turned so cold we could think of nothing better than a cornucopia of free sock patterns.

You may buy the book, but it you go to each individual pattern you may download the sock pattern for FREE: http://www.knitpicks.com/books/Toasty_Toes_Socks_for_All_Seasons__D32944.html?intmedid=Main3–ToastyToes

 

Happy Knitting & Seasons Greetings

Sonoma County Yarn Shop

Although we don’t have custom fit listed as a class, Lesley will be happy to set up a time to meet with you and get you started on your very own Custom Fit. We have so many inspired knitters from the workshops we offered this year. Many proud new owners of garments that fit the way they wanted them to. Some have completed more than one or two.

As always please let us know if there is a topic, you would like covered, or a class that you would like to see us offer. Yarnitudes is your LYS make the most of all we have to offer you.

I guess that is all I have to say for this year. Here’s to the Next Year. May it bring Health, Love Peace and Prosperity to all.

Thank you so much for your Patronage in 2016

Until next year then ~ Trudy
