Good morning lovely knitters!  I know this is the weekend to get all your Thanksgiving plans a-cooking, but don't forget that essential knitting!  It can save you from many awkward family moments - because the muggles never really know when you are counting.  Someone asks a question you don't want to answer, just smile and say "34, 35, 36..."  Someone tries to get you to agree with something that you do NOT agree with, "42, 43, 44..."  Works everytime!  :)

This week, ALL of our classes went online!  Best hurry - one is already sold out.  There are several new ones and lots of our regulars that you may not have gotten a chance to do yet!  The new year is a GREAT time to learn new things and take on new challenges, so sign-up now and that resolution will take care of itself come New Years!

I've been having such trouble with calendars lately - I just can't understand what the date is (or even the month sometimes), so though I have to double check every week, it is just FIVE weeks until Christmas!  And our awesome quick project for this week is brought to by our November SOS Box that went out this week!  The Mason Howl!

This is such a fun, quick knit, and though I'm still totally in love with the Howl for Noro

the Mason Howl is also a gem! 

It was based on our older pattern the Mason Hat

which we also reworked for these two yarns in case you want to make a set (and because its yarn was disc long ago)!  Just until the end of November, the Mason Howl kit will include BOTH patterns, so grab it now!

I hope to see you all today for your Thanksgiving prep knitting!  And, you might've guessed that we'll be closed on Thanksgiving day, but open on Weds (for the total last minute planners) and Friday and Saturday from 12 - 5 next week!  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
