Join us Tuesday, October 31st, for 3 spectacular classes with our favorite knitting guru! We'll start the morning with Ponchinis and Scarves from 10 to 1 (a pattern is just a suggestion!). After a lunch break, from 2 to 5, he'll dive into brioche in the round as only he can do! If you think it's tricky, he'll find great ideas to get you going. And finally, after supper, Legendary StevenBe (6 - 9) will regale us with glories of fiber arts, creating wonderful pieces using fabulous fibers. To register, click this calendar link. Each of the classes has its own link. Register for these classes knowing you are sure to have a great time. Each class is $60; however, with each additional class after the first, you'll receive a $10 coupon to be use at any time for The Knitting Cup inventory. We hope you find a class perfect for you.

Let's Make Plans!
Typically over 600 people visit the yarn shops on the crawl. We know it takes planning to get to all of them. If you are traveling north to south, The Knitting Cup will be your first stop. Depending on your plans, Georgetown might be home base for 1/3 of the shops. We have great places to stay. The Sheraton is at the Rivery. Surrounded by some of the best restaurants (farm to table, Asian, sports bar, and pasta), the Sheraton is on the southbound access road of 35. The Comfort Inn and Suits and the Best Western, a block from each other, are located on the northbound access road of 35, closer to downtown. Georgetown is known for having the most beautiful downtown in Texas, Take time to shop the great boutiques, coffee shops, gift shops, and restaurants. My favorites: Mesquite Creek Outfitters for beer, Union Merchant or Kork for Wine, Razmataaz for beauty products, 309 Coffee for just that, and Blue Corn Harvest for a great meal. Dos Salsas is across the street from our little shop. Toni and Luigi's is 1 block east of the shop, and Sweet Lemon is on Church Street, north of 29 (University). As you search for the most perfect fiber, you certainly won't go hungry or thirsty!
Remember, each shop will have a featured yarn brand at 15% off, typically a special event or two, and great pattern ideas for your yarn. Stay tuned for more information.
New Products You Don't Want to Miss!
Starting in June, I started filling The Cup with the most amazing fibers, bags, accessories, and notions. If you keep up with us on Facebook and Instagram, you see most of our new products. You'll love the new Laneras made of polwarth; Ikigai (pronounced icky guy) a dreamy soft alpaca/merino chunky; 30 colors of Bad Sheep in DK and Fingering; a restock of "not safe for work" stitch markers, tons of new stitch stoppers, new Atenti bags, great new Tweed Haze from Rowan, incredible new Zodiac colors in Rios, Barker Wool Planned Pooling from MadelineTosh, Spiral Grain from Urth, and the lovely colors of great old standards of Ultra Wool, Ultra Alpaca Light, and Sesame from Berroco. I found lots of great knit and crochet kits as well as some of the coolest uber chunky yarn for the trendiest of sweaters and hats. And don't forget the books!
