New needles

New needles

New Karbonz circulars from Knitter's Pride are here, at last!

New Arrivals
We just received a big box of needle-goodies at Dartmouth Yarns.  We now have lots of Karbonz circular needles.  These are fantastic carbon fibre babies--warm and light as a whisper--with a slick polished tip for great speed with stitches. We've also added laminated wood circulars from Knitter's Pride, color coded for size, and restocked Karbonz, bamboo, and Marblz dpns.  In addition to needles, we've got locking stitch markers, blocking wires, and new dpn project-holder tubes. Come grab your size while the selection is good!

Free* Continental Workshop this Sunday
We had so much fun last time, we are doing it again this Sunday, April 19, 2:30-4:00. All you English-style knitters out there (you know who you are--you wrap the needle with yarn in your right hand), come learn the Continental-style of knitting.  Bring the biggest gauge yarn you have purchased from the shop and needles to match, and the workshop is totally free. No big yarn from the shop in your stash? There is plenty of beautiful yarn in the shop to choose from.

See you Sunday!
*Without yarn purchased from DY, the workshop is just $10.

Spindle-spinning class was super fun.  Thanks, Elinor!  Here is 55g of my handspun merino.  I've tried to spindle before here and there, but this was my first full skein, and plied, no less.  I want to spin every day now.  My number one tip would be to make sure to take time to relax your neck and roll your shoulders every 20 minutes or so during your first big spindling day.  After the 2-hour class, my neck was really tied in knots. I've got a big wad of natural Shetland to spin next.  I hope we can get Elinor back for another class (maybe Spindle Returns) real soon.
