SOMETHING FOR THE MEN IN YOUR LIFEI don't know about you, but finding gifts for the men in my life is some times difficult. I often just give up and resort to gift cards from Home Depot, Chapters or any store which sells electronics. If you would like to knit something I have a couple of suggestions. Let us start with a great FREE PATTERN from Ravelry - LAMAR, a classic, reversible, cabled scarf. It is so hard to find good reversible scarves. And a bonus is that this pattern would also be great for men.
I have knit the scarf three times now and made a few changes to the original pattern including modifications to knit the scarf in any weight of yarn (original knit in chunky). Drop by, pick out any yarn you like and we can help you with the necessary changes to the pattern to knit a classic reversible cabled scarf great for the men in you life.

Date & Time
|Monday, November 5th , 6:00pm – 7:30pm|
|Cables are wonderful and fun to knit. Most cables unfortunately don’t look too great when the wrong side is visible, so not always a great choice for scarves. The solution is a totally reversible cable design from Ravelry called Lamar.|
SOCK BLOCKERSIf you enjoy knitting socks, either for yourself or as gifts, treat yourself to some sock blockers. Lace socks blocked in a snap, so easy. If your socks look like they have shrunk a little, stretch them back out. Most sock yarns, even if they are machine wash, want you to lie them flat to dry. With a pair of blockers, you can hang them to dry. We now carry wire sock blockers, available in 3 sizes for the fabulous low retail of $20 -$25, depending on size.
