Welcome to Hidden River Yarns!
What's Happening at Hidden River Yarns...
I met the super charming Lars Rains this spring at TNNA, and guess who is coming to visit!
Lars will be here Friday and Saturday, November 11 & 12. Friday evening, 5-8:30 pm, he will be signing his two books and hanging out with us! Saturday, 10 am-1 pm, he will be teaching double knitting, using his lovely Penumbra cowl.
Even though Lars Rains has been knitting for over twenty years, he still learns something new with each project he completes. He firmly believes that every knitter has the potential to become a fabulous designer with the proper tools and techniques. His design work has been featured in Vogue Knitting, Knit Simple, Knit Edge, Chicago Knits, and Knitty. His patterns have also been included in collections for Malabrigo Yarns, Noro Yarns, and Cascade Yarns. Lars published his first book of Icelandic patterns, Modern Lopi: One, last year and one of his designs from that book won the Grand Prize at the inaugural Independent Designers contest at the leading yarn industry association's fashion show this year. He can be found on Ravelry as ModernLopi or online at www.modernlopi.com.
Another event to add to your calendar! Indie dyer and author extraordinaire, Carol Sulcoski of Black Bunny Yarns fame will be here to sign her books and with a boatload of hand-dyed goodies on December 10th.
Join us Wednesday afternoons from noon - 3 pm or Thursday nights from 6 - 8:00 pm for our open knit and crochet times! Bring your projects and get your stitching on around our table. New to the area?
