A Note From Karen
One of our Friday Morning Knitters said, “This weather is as unpredictable as a teenager!” I’m sure most of us will agree. But, I’m confident Spring is coming to central Ohio! My poor soggy frozen pansies keep trying to poke their heads through the ground.
March brings opportunities to “March Forth” into spring. Jenny is teaching classes to knit hats and bunnies on double pointed needles. This skill opens the door to amigurumi creatures, preemie hats and other projects requiring work in small circumferences.
On March 4, we have a birthday party “skein swap” paired with an opportunity to fill boxes for those in need. We suggest toiletries, such as shampoo, soap, diapers and tooth paste, or socks, hats, mittens and scarves. Please make certain that all items are unopened, new purchases and not past expiration dates.
April opens with a fresh, KAL from Knit Purl Hunter. Michelle’s design, Cable Channel, is a stylish pillow featuring an original cable pattern. Hikoo’s Kenzie is her yarn of choice. Knitters can select from 30 rich colors and coordinate their yarn with beautiful buttons selected especially for Michelle’s project.
Finally, April 1 will bring surprises and gifts to our customers. Stayed tuned!
Karen

It’s party time! We have several upcoming events in which we are going to celebrate our knitting successes. It would be great if you joined us! On February 11, we will celebrate the end of our 2018 Passport to the Holidays program. March 4, we will celebrate, well, me! We have fun plans to share with you that day. April 18, we will have a Kagan’s Quilt reunion. It will be fun to see everyone’s quilt, finished or not.
Call (614.734.0618) or email (knit2temptations@gmail.com) if you plan to attend.
Let’s get the parties started!

As you wrap up your 2018 projects, look forward to our venture into European knitting techniques in 2019. Future classes will include journeys to the British Isles, Lativia, Sweden and other Scandinavian countries.
But, before we “take off” abroad, kick off Super Bowl Sunday by joining us for an Open Knit from 2-5pm on Sunday, February 3.
2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year full of possibilities for our friends!

A Note From Karen
Guided by your input and suggestions for classes, several of our staff met last weekend to develop new and interesting programs for 2019. You can look forward to “Technique of the Month.” The first Saturday of each month, we will teach the basic skills to knit a project. Later in the month, the newly learned skill will be featured in a more advanced project.
On Saturday, February 2, from 9-11am, I will teach Intro to Cables. We will make a simple cup cozy for your favorite water bottle or for your coffee shop cup.
The word of the month is CABLES!

A Note From Karen
Jingle, jingle, jingle!
Gift-giving time is fast approaching!
Stop. Breathe. Rest. Be easy on yourself.
Many of you are working hard to finish a gift for a loved one. Maybe you can’t meet that gift exchange time frame. Don’t worry! Wrap the present up with a bow and enclose a card that promises to finish the gift after the holidays.
But the main thing I want to say is enjoy these days – whether you are shopping, baking, wrapping, crafting, cleaning or socializing. Be in the moment. And know that Knitting Temptations is here to help make your holidays festive!
We have a shop that is full of gifts for knitters – Yarn Bowls, Building with Lace class, Addi Clicks, Project Bags, Laine magazines, Gift Cards and of course, YARN!
We have suggestions for quick and easy-to-knit projects including mitts, cowls and hats. Just ask!
To round out the year, be sure to check out our Aran Holiday Ornament and Holiday Sweater Ornament classes.
December 31 from 10am-3pm, we will be hosting a “Ring in the New Year” open knit. I’d love for you to come! Bring your leftover holiday treats to get rid of…ahem, I mean, to share! Bring a friend. Spend the day with other knitters doing what we love.
May your days be merry and bright,
Karen

A Note From Karen
I am thankful.
I am thankful for those who come into Knitting Temptations to experience first-hand the beautiful yarns that we carry, for those who come in need of knitting guidance, and for those who come in just to share their lives.
I am thankful for those who spend their time working at Knitting Temptations – teaching, winding yarns, taking photos, providing customer service, shipping special orders, stocking products, knitting samples, updating our social media, dressing the floor models, helping with special events, and for those who create a sense of order when it feels like things around the shop are like a crazy, twisted hank of yarn!
I am thankful for the opportunity to serve our knitting community.
With a grateful heart,
Karen

The June Cashmere Trunk Show opens at 10am on October 26 and will continue through 4pm on October 27.

Amy Swanson will be here on Saturday to share the unique story of June Cashmere and its mission.
As the Knit Purl Hunter KAL is wrapping up, We are excited to announce the dates for Michelle Hunter’s class series, Building with Lace! This series is a wonderful opportunity to grow your knitting skills. We are now accepting reservations for the series which begins on February 6, 2019.

As you work toward your Passport to the Holidays rewards, many of you are returning your “passport cards” to the shop and receiving your luggage stamps. It’s such fun to watch the progress.
