Yarn Shop Day 2016

Speaking of Abstract Cat...we are busy getting ready for this year's Yarn Shop Day on April 30th and are excited to announce that Laura will be joining us with a colourful trunkshow on the day!

We'll also have goodie bags (while stocks last), the now-traditional 10% discount if you tell us that you love your yarn shop and oodles of cake, coffee and all that good stuff. We'd love to see you then!


Our next block of Beginner Crochet is starting next week, from April 13th to May 4th and there are still some spaces left!

It's 115 for the four weeks, and that includes tuition, handouts including patterns, materials, a 10% discount on relevant purchases on the night and tea and cake .

We've also got two Advanced Classes coming up:

Introduction to Sock Knitting - May 11th at 6.30pm - 28

You'll make a mini sock as a decoration or keyring charm, which will contain all the techniques you'll need for a full size sock including working in the round, short rows and tips on how to adapt a pattern for the perfect fit.

Introduction to Lace Knitting - May 18th at 6.30pm - 28

You'll look at different lace pattern swatches, discuss techniques used and levels of difficulty before choosing one of the swatches and casting on for a large swatch that could work as a scarf. We'll also discuss common mistakes and practice fixing them as we knit.
