We’ll be closed July 4 in honor of Independence Day. Have a wonderful day!
The Yarn Boutique is open seven days a week with the exception of the following major holidays:
New Years Day
Independence Day (July 4)
We are very fortunate to be able to once again host my favorite knitting teacher/celebrity for a workshop here in Lafayette. Cat Bordhi is the author of Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles, the book I used when it first came out to teach myself to knit socks when there was no yarn shop nearby. Since then, she has published five more books, two on Moebius knitting, and three more on unique ways of looking at sock construction. Her latest, Sweet Tomato Heel Socks, presents a technique that, once learned, makes knitting not only sock heels, but other short row projects, easier than you could ever imagine. She also includes in the class other really cool techniques that you will use over and over again. We have reserved the Arts & Sciences room at the Lafayette Library and Learning center on Saturday, July 21, 2012, for the class, but space is limited. See Classes and Events for more information.
What’s better than pointy sticks, good conversation, and a little good food and wine (or soda or beer)? Join us Tuesday, July 10, for our first Knit Knight at Mangia Ristorante in La Fiesta Square. Bring your pointy sticks, your project, and relax with beverage, dinner, or share a pizza. We’ll start at 6:00 and stay until at least 9 (they’re open until 10). If you need a project, come a little early, or talk to me (Marianne), and I’ll open the store for you.
Our next Fiber Exploration workshop is coming right up. Check Classes and Events details.
Welcome to our new webpage. We had a little bump with our old one, but it needed updating anyway, so bear with us while we build it back up. In the meantime, call us at 925-283-7377, or e-mail us at yarn-at-yarnboutique-dot-us.
