Happy Halloween!

It is hard to believe it is the last day of October already! Happy Halloween everyone! Juliet "decided" to be a bunny this year. You can see just how thrilled she is to have the hood up on her costume. If you are in the Tofino area today be sure to stop by the shop for some treats! The sun is trying to come out so fingers crossed for all the tricker treaters tonight that there isn't any rain. Everyone here at Knits by the Sea hopes that you have a great Halloween filled with lots of candy and fun costumes!

The classes keep coming!

The class schedule keeps getting added to here at Knits by the Sea so be sure to check out our class page regularly for updates! The next class that is coming up soon is the Whale Mitts class which is a fun class where you learn how to knit the mittens pictured above. And learn how Faye designed her own mitts! Coming up on Saturday is our very first Intro to Crochet class! This class will teach you the basics of crochet while making a granny square which is a great stash buster project!

The online store is taking some time and we apologize for the delay. But the end is in sight for programming! We have been given an estimate of 2 more weeks and we have our fingers crossed that we can make it happen!

Halloween is coming up soon and we are getting excited. The big question of course is what to dress up as! Is anyone doing any Halloween knitting? We would love to hear what you're working on!

Retreat details and a newsletter!

So lots of updating happening on the Knits by the Sea website these past couple of days. But we are so excited that the retreat details are now posted! It's been hard to keep this one under wraps during the planning stages. Knits by the Sea is very excited to announce that Cookie A. will be coming to Tofino for a weekend of sock knitting! This amazing sock designer will be sharing her knowledge and taking you through the steps to designing your own socks. There will also be a great class on the Sunday that focuses on how to make your ribbing flow into your design. This will be a fun weekend at Long Beach Lodge with great food, a wine and appetizer reception on Saturday with a book signing session with Cookie A. and if you have time to stay on Sunday afternoon...High Tea!! For all the retreat details you can go here. We really hope that you can make it out for our very first retreat. It's going to be lots of fun! Pictured above is one of her free designs on Ravelry called "Cubist" knit up in SweetGeorgia.

AND our October newsletter is out! You can read it here. We have some new yarns at the shop and it outlines some of the fun new classes we will be offering. We have lots of classes scheduled all the way until the beginning of December so take a look and see what is coming up!
