Chicks With Sticks - New Shawl Kits and a Holiday HEAD-Start

New Shawl Kits and a Holiday HEAD-start!

We hope you all are well and enjoying our Michigan summer (or summer wherever you are)!  This time of year may not be what people think of as prime knitting time, but I've never been one to let the season stop me!  Just ask my family, who harasses me (all in good fun???) when I show up to picnics toting my project bag.  I love to have some simple projects going that allow me to sit and visit AND knit.  We have a few ideas in that category that we hope you'll love....

Have you seen Midwestern Afternoon?
It's a new shawl pattern by Lisa K. Ross and available on Ravelry.  It's worked on the bias with simple increases and decreases in garter stitch, with lacy pops of color from mini skeins.  We have created two different mini skein kits - one in pastels and one in brights - with this shawl pattern in mind.  Put your mini skein kit together with a main color of your choosing and you will create a beautiful little wrap that is perfect for a midwestern afternoon! 

Stop in to see our mini-version of the shawl and to pick up yarn for your own full-sized version.  We will also be offering a Zoom knit-along on either Tuesday or Thursday evenings, if there is enough interest.

Want to get a HEAD-start on holiday knitting? Hats are a great holiday gift!  We've got a display of hats to get you started with ideas.  We had great fun putting some yarns together that you can hold double to create a beautiful textured look.  Each pairing includes a free coordinating button to add that special finishing touch.  Stop in soon while the selection is good!

Sale!  Since we still can't use our sit and knit area for sitting and knitting, we're keeping it filled with sale yarn!  Spend a little time rooting through the bins and find something fun!

Our hours until further notice are Noon-6pm Monday-Friday and 9am-1pm on Saturday.  Per government order, masks are still required and we are limited to 7 customers in the store at any one time.  Our area is lookin' good so far and we're doing our part to try and keep it that way!

Please stop in soon to say hello!  We are disinfected and masked and oh, so excited to see everyone!  And watch our Facebook (@stitchingmem) and Instagram (#chickswithstickskazoo) for shop updates - we are working on some more virtual knit-alongs! 

Ooooh, and wait until you see what we will be getting in for fall!  Stay tuned......!

Happy summer from your Chicks With Sticks crew,

Amy, Michelle, Ann, Katie, Darlene K., Darlene C., and Jane
