Get Your Hat On!

It’s hat month at Wabi-Sabi! All month we are featuring every type of hat known to man, beast, and knitter. There’s a hat for every yarn weight and knitting ability, we have everything from lace knit to bulky floppy hats to scats (scarf hats).  The store is bursting with fun wool and matching pom-poms that are calling your name! Hats make great christmas gifts that everyone will adore! Hats are a great low commitment projects perfect for every knitter. They’re also a portable knit which is great for cold hockey arenas, and family gatherings.

 

 

Sally Melville’s L’envelope

It’s not a sweater, it’s not a shawl, it’s better, it’s L’envelope! This fun hybrid’s a flexible knit, meaning you can really make it your own. It can be knit in different yarn weights and is sized to fit. L’envelop is a unique garment that will go with everything, it’s beautiful but easy to make. This is a knitting 301 knitting course so experience is required. You will love this fun class taught by Pamela, and will walk away with a gorgeous knit.
