On April 30, Laurie Gonyea, owner of the Feel Good Yarn Company will be visiting Woolstock Knit & Sew with her gorgeous line of SilverSpun® yarn, the American-made cotton spun with pure silver. The silver makes the yarn conductive and enables knitters to make gloves that can be used with smartphones and tablets—and the yarn also has numerous therapeutic properties. The yarn will be available for sale throughout the day, and Laurie will also be conducting a “mosaic knitting” workshop from 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Workshop participants will learn how to knit what appears to be a complicated color pattern but is as easy as knitting stripes. They will make a swatch for the technique used for Laurie’s exclusive Pompeii Hat (shown at right).
The cost of the 1 ½ hour workshop is $35, and includes a kit with the hat pattern, two mini-skeins of SilverSpun® yarn, needles, and a canvas project bag. Please call ahead (410-517-1020) or click the link below to register for the workshop.
Along with the yarn-- available in sport and fingering weight and in several beautiful colors--Laurie will also be showing her line of exclusive patterns and lovely samples of socks, hats, gloves, cowls and sweaters made with SilverSpun®. We know that will really enjoy meeting Laurie--she is lively and enthusiastic, and her story about how she got started producing this yarn is truly inspiring.
