January Knit-Along Update

Our January Knit-Along is well underway and all the knitters and crocheters are working hard together on our Thursday Knit-Nights (starting at 6:30 PM). Even if you are not participating in the knit-along, please feel free to bring in your own projects and join along. Here are a few pictures of the Knit-Along project:
Please post comments if you have any problems and we will dedicate posts in the future to trying to work out any dilemmas that we all can learn from. And the February Knit-Along is underway! Stay tuned for details.

Here is my personal favorite view of the sweater (from behind, upside down):

SASI is a Crochet-Friendly Store

[Jocelyn's completely unfinished crocheted Babette Blanket]

We feel honored that Sister Arts was recently written up in the article "Crochet Around Town" (Interweave Crochet Winter 2009)! The author, Gwen Blakely Kinsler, is the founder of the Crochet Guild of America and Donna had a great time talking to her about Sister Arts and crochet. It is important to us that SASI is a crochet-friendly store. We have gotten a flurry of calls and students signing up for crochet classes since. Because of this we now have a weekly Get Help "Project Class" on Wednesday Mornings from 9:30 - 11:30. Anne and Donna are here to assist you with your crochet or knit projects, so please call in with any requests. Cost is $30.00 for 2 hours or $15.00/hour. We look forward to meeting you!
