2019 Year Long Mystery Knit a Long
"My Peace of the Pi"
Have you had fun with the Makahiki?
We teamed up Lazor Sheep and Sharon Mooney again for 2019!
This shawl is a show stopper!
It will have twelve tonal colors that blend beautifully from one to the next. There is one color of beads throughout.
And, there are no wrap and turns!
The shawl is designed to sit perfectly on your shoulders for a beautiful and highly wearable result.
This is a year long KAL. You get one skein of yarn per month and a clue each month.
We only ordered a limited number of kits so be sure to buy yours early! The link is up and working! There are several ways to buy the kit so spend a little time in the drop down box! Give us a call with any questions.

December Classes
We try yo keep many of the December classes to easy, make and take projects as we know many of you are still working on gifts!
Intro to Knitting
With Sue
Thursday 11:00
This class is for the absolute beginner. You will learn to Cast on and the knit stitch in class as well as how to read a basic pattern.
Come back a week later and learn the purl stitch and how to seam your gauntlets. The pattern is included in the class fee.
Intro to Knitting for the Adventurous Beginner
With Sue
Thursday at 12:00
Think of this class as more of a refresher. Have you learned to knit before but it has been a while?
You will relearn how to cast on, how to work a knit stitch and purl stitch and identify each while working on a welted cowl. Come back when you are done and we will teach you how to bind off!
Snatching Beauty from the Jaws of Weaving Disaster
With Peggy
Friday Dec 14th
OR Wednesday Dec 19th
Most of us, when learning a new skill, have a few pieces that just don't quite turn out the way we want. With weaving it can be bad edges, or inconsistent beating (tension), or warping gone wrong. Peggy is going to show you how to create beautiful pieces out of the things we are tempted to throw away! If you do not have any of these to bring -- Peggy will provide some of hers!
Felted Soaps
a Make and Take Class
With Denise Brown
Saturday, Dec 22nd
Felted soaps are a blast to make - they can be very simple or you can use extra wool to create designs.
Felted soaps are a washcloth and soap all in one - acts like a loofah, has antibacterial properties, and makes soap last longer.
Denise will provide the wool and soaps. Students will need to bring a good size bowl. HOKC has felting pads you can use. You will need to purchase felting needles which we have in stock.
January 2nd
Yarn Over Truck!
Maridee will be here with the Yarn Over Truck on Jan 2nd. Come visit!
We will also have kits ready for you for the January Sweater KAL. This is a great pattern that allows you to mix and match weights and yarns!
January Sweater KAL!
It is almost January which means we are getting ready for January Sweater KAL!
This year, we will do things a little differently. We are going to pick one sweater - The Log Cabin Cardigan - and see who all wants to join in and make it.
We will have some optional classes to work skill sets - including how to make minor adjustments for the perfect fit. This is a fast, fun, and easy knit! Any skill set can make this sweater - and the pattern is free!
The 2019 Passport
Tour the world of knitting through HOKC's passport!
If you thought the little blue book ruled your world this year, just wait until you see what we have in stor
