Wednesday

Roses are red, some yarns are blue....
there is a kit for our knit-a-long just for you!


Our most recent knit-a-long is the cutest pair of fingerless gloves I think I've ever laid eyes on - the "Hearts Fingerless Gloves"!  




There are still some kits available, as well as space in the specialty technique class on the duplicate stitch which is how you will create those adorable hearts.  







We have lots of different and unique colour combinations already made up, and Silky Wool is really lovely to work with and to wear!



Now, on the the details of the knit-a-long!


Kits are $20 each with the option of adding on $5 for the class portion of the KAL- read below for more info and hurry in  to pick up your kit and sign up for the class! Each kit will knit AT LEAST two pairs of these gorgeous fingerless mitts!

Ever heard a fellow knitter say that "knitting is the new yoga"? Well, they actually go together!
Stix and Stones is partnering up with Ruby Yoga Studio to bring you this innovative class where we will discuss the properties of knitting and WHY people always say that knitting is just like doing yoga. We will also be doing some sample knitting to feel what your body does while we are knitting and which parts of the body have strain put on them while knitting and how we can correct that. We will be doing a simple yoga practice to go along with this as well!

This event is on Sunday February 22 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm and will be held for one hour at Stix and Stones and for the other hour at Ruby Yoga studio- both on Main Street and just a few doors down from each other.

Cost is $50+HST per person and you can sign up any time at Stix and Stones!
No skill level required- please attend even if you have never knit OR done yoga before!
