One of the biggest roles an LYS fills is providing a community. While that is usually an in-person one, our unprecedented times are calling for a virtual one...so here goes.
All of us at Nitro Knitters are going to extend that community to social media and share our creative endeavors while trying to do our part to slow the spread. We, like most of you, do more than knit or crochet. We sew, bake, create artwork, and have cute pets. If you need some distraction and want to look at something other than news on your phone, follow the hashtag #nitroknitterscommunity. And please share what you're doing with us! Tag anyone who could use a knitting community right now. You can even set up notifications for when certain hashtags are used or people have posted.
For those of you who aren't on social media, I will keep this blog up-to-date as well.
If you want to email, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe, and we will all get through this together.
Gnome is Where You Hang Your Hat is all assembled!
> In honor of St. Patrick’s Day to be working on a heartwarming project, I’m casting on a green tweed Here We Gnome Again hat, which I will be combining with a body and beard from two of Sarah Schira’s other gnomes-pics to follow

Classic Stuffed Bunny by ChiWei Ranck
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner / Intermediate (must be familiar with single crochet)
When we first got Cascade Yarn’s Furliscious in the shop, I knew I had to make some stuffed animals out of it! One of those animals is a super cute bunny designed by ChiWei Ranck. This pattern is a winner for this yarn due to its classic and huggable design. Whether you decide to make your bunny in classic yarn or opt for the fabulous Furliscious, you are sure to end up with an adorable companion.
Join us Monday, October 14 and 28 from 1-3pm for this two-part class! To sign up and find a list of needed materials, follow the link at the top of this post.

Fibrelya is a family business, and what gives them uniqueness is that the man does the dyeing, so he looks at colors differently. Their goal is to give customers interesting colors and something different. We think they've done a good job of it! These kits are available on our website.
