Swans Island yarn brought a little bit of Maine to The Knitting Boutique this morning. Imagine a beautiful organic yarn using all natural dyes and traditional hand dyeing techniques that produce incredibly soft yarns with a rich color. Swans Island yarns were on display at this morning’s “Saturday Morning Breakfast Club” – the morning event for Boutique Club Card members. And at this exclusive Club Card event, the Swans Island yarns and patterns were 15% off. It was a beautiful morning – thanks to those who braved the weather to meet with us!
Below are some great photos of our customers and their projects at The Knitting Boutique! Come and join us for Sit and Stitch night on Thursday or Fridays.
As part of The Knitting Boutique’s Famous Knitter Workshop series, Tanis Gray held a class yesterday teaching from her Capitol Knits book. Students learned about techniques and sizing for her Lincoln Cardi. One student shared, “Just have to say I had another good class today. I really appreciated the method that the class was taught. You know I am a big fan of hand outs and subject matter knowledge and Tanis had both.” Thanks Tanis for visiting. We look forward to your next visit!
