Summer Camps at the Tangled Web

Tangled Web Summer Camp
Friday, July 11, 2014 - Friday, August 1, 2014 - 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Level 2: Must know basic knit and purl, increase, decrease

Join us for 4 Fridays of beautiful little projects perfect for summer knitting!

We’ve chosen patterns from a fabulous book series with a literary twist. The Defarge Books are full of knit and crochet designs inspired by beloved characters from classic fiction. In the first book—What Would Madame Defarge Knit?—there are twenty-one knit and crochet designs each inspired by a character you know and love.

The second book—What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit?—contains  27 new knit designs (including a weaving pattern with DIY loom instructions) all based on new characters. Whether it’s a knitted amigurumi Friend from The Secret Garden, a Smashing Cap and Cuffs from Somerset Maughm, or Ball Gloves for Jane Bennet, each design in the book will capture your imagination.

These books bring together a host of knitting (and weaving!) talent to imagine what their beloved fictional characters would knit and wear. From Tristan and Iseult to Jane Bennet to Miss Marple, characters from many of your favorite books finally get the knitwear they deserve.

Take a break from the kids and relax in the air-conditioning to learn the basics or try something a little more challenging. We’ll be here to help!

Challenge your lace skills with this shawl pattern by Helene Rush. We’d love to do it in a Cascade Heritage Silk, a fingering weight blend of merino and silk.

You can purchase the Tulip Shawlette pattern in the store, or online through Ravelry.com

I must confess, I may be in love with the couch in this picture. But the tea towel and matching cozy are lovely projects with some nice “mindless knitting” in the middle.

Planning on knitting one of these new patterns? Let us know in the comments!

Closed For Inventory!

Happy new year! We’ll be closed for inventory and restocking Thursday and Friday.
Because we’ll be closed on First Friday, we’re rescheduling our celebrations for Friday, January 10.
