Thinking out loud from 'The Yarn Kitchen' at Skeinz.com where yarn is created, not made.

Getting Worked Up!
Persian Poppies colour workshop from KAN 2010
Skeinz is proud to be support Knit August Nights again this year. Held in our home town of Napier, KAN:2 is a knitters retreat weekend & a series of fibre workshops. If you think you wish to escape the Winter blues you can register to attend the retreat in its entirety, however this year you are also able to attend individual workshops.
Getting to grips with socks
There are 10 workshops covering a variety of topics: Design, pattern interpretation, colour, spindle spinning, project troubleshooting & even steeking. We are accepting workshop registrations at Skeinz in Husheer Place or you can visit the website & register there.
The Knitters Market on Sunday 9 til noon.
Also as part of KAN:2 is the Sunday Knitters Market. Last year we were swamped with knitters & yarn lovers, all coming to soak up the delicious yarns on offer. Many of the traders are online retailers, so the market is a rare chance to touch, fondle & meet the people behind these beautiful yarns. Skeinz too is there in force & we always save some extra end of season specials to tempt you.
