Pumpkin Decorating Fun!!

It's getting to be that time of year! Time for scarves, cider, and pumpkins!!!! So in honor of fall, we are offering up a pumpkin decorating opportunity for you to showcase your talents! Naturally the pumpkins will be knitted, not grown on the farm, and George has designed an original pattern for you to use to make them! The pattern is free (and available by clicking the Pumpkin Pattern link at the top of this page) so all you need is the yarn and appropriate needles for the project. Once knitted, decorate your pumpkin and be sure to bring it with you to Knit Nite (10-28-11) for a pumpkin show and chance at a $25 gift certificate from the Shabby Sheep.

Happy knitting!!!!

Back on Track!

George and I are super excited to let everyone know that we have finally moved into our new location at 116 S Avenue B in Portales, NM. We only moved about 1/2 of a block from our old location, but it was a major undertaking! We are still unpacking boxes and trying to get all the work spaces set up, but we are open for business and Knit Nite is going strong every Friday night from 6p-until we all collapse from exhaustion! LOL We are looking toward new things on the horizon as we begin to offer new services and new classes. Come on by and see our new facility and join us for Knit Nite! We look forward to seeing lots of familiar faces and getting to know new ones as we continue to build and grow!

Knit Nite will still be on Fridays from 5 til everyone leaves! Or George falls asleep which ever comes first. Starting May 17 there will also be a Crochet Nite so be sure to stop by and spend some time with your 'Hooker' friends. On Saturdays from 10 am to 12 pm we will offer free help to anyone needing assistance with their projects. If you need help at other times just ask about Instant Classes. Instant Classes allow you to create on the spot any class that you are interested in taking for a small fee. There will also be posted a regular class schedule for May.
