We are so excited about this weekend-long schedule of events, and grateful that Our Very Own Bronnie (yes, that’s what we call her…) from Casapinka and her friend Kemper from Junkyarn will be spending three fabulous fun-filled days at the shop.  So take a look at the list of events below and plan to spend the entire weekend at Love 2 Knit!

Meet and Greet
Friday: 4-7pm
Join us for lots of fun and laughter when we welcome Bronnie and Kemper to kick off the weekend!  And of course there will be some awesome food and drinks to add to the merriment!  And raffles and party favors…because we can’t help it!  Please register by March 23rd so we know how many goodies to order!  Raffle tickets are included with price of admission.

Color Workshop by Casapinka 
taught by Bronnie and Kemper
Casapinka has developed a very fun three hour workshop from her years spent around knitters and in local yarn stores.  This workshop is for those who want practical, personal, and simple methods for choosing colors for their knitting projects.

There will be no color wheel, no strict rules, but plenty of laughs and demonstrations.  We all learn from each other and leave with new techniques that can be put into action immediately.  The class lasts for 2 hours and there is a third hour used to help people choose yarn colors for any projects they like, which often ends up with knitters helping each other with their new sense of color confidence.

Materials:  Absolutely nothing
Homework:  None!
Cost:  $65
Time:  Saturday, 9am – Noon

Botanique Shawl Class by Casapinka
Botanique, Bronnie’s newest design, is hot off the presses for Edinburgh Yarn Festival!  The Shawl is an asymmetrical rectangular shape that uses four colors of fingering weight yarn.  Review some favorite stitches and some new stitch work unique to this design and end the class with help choosing colors!
Materials:  Stash fingering weight yarn for knitting stitch samples, variety of needles sizes 3-6
Cost:  $65 (pattern included
Time:  Saturday, 2-5pm

Junkyarn Trunk Shows

“My purpose as a dyer is to empower fellow creatives by producing high-quality, colorful products for makers — knitters, crocheters, weavers and more. I hope to remind people using my products of the women who make this world better every day by their words, actions, and deeds.

All women and female-identifying individuals are included in Junkyarn Hand-Dyed Yarns. Women of all colors, creeds, and sexualities deserve to be recognized for their convictions and courage.”   Kemper

You don’t want to miss this trunk show!  The yarn is yummy, the colors are gorgeous and we can’t wait to cast on SOMETHING…ANYTHING!!!  Hey, how about a Casapinka design??

Saturday:  Noon – 5pm
Sunday:  10am – 4pm
Please stop by the shop or call with your credit card to register for the Meet and Greet and Classes.  Deadline for registration is March 23rd , no refunds after March 26th.  Class sizes are limited and they are filling up fast so be sure to reserve your spot today!
