Gnome Fun!



We will have a special guest come and join us for Knit City this year: Sarah Schira of Imagined Landscapes will be visiting our booth during the show and teaching a few classes at the store in the week following, including an introduction to the knitted gnomes that have hit the knitting world like a storm over the past year.

Known largely for her gnome designs, Sarah designs can be found she also loves designing accessories for everyday adventures. She co-hosts the Imagined Landscapes Podcast with her sister, Katie. 

Here’s three of Sarah’s special workshops that we are pleased to present:


Knit a little gnome in a three hour workshop and learn all sorts of tricks including 2-colour i-cord, bobble noses, stuffing toys, and more.
REQUIRED SKILLS: Students should be familiar with knitting in the round. Instructions will be given for knitting with DPNs but students who are familiar with magic loop or knitting on 2 circular needles can adapt the pattern to knit as they prefer.

DATE: Wednesday October 9th, from 6:00-9:00pm

COST: $45 (+tax)

Course description: Learn how to choose yarns so that you love the finished object – from understanding the mood and look you crave to experimenting with colours so that you can mix and match with confidence for single-colour and multi-colour projects. Students will leave with an arsenal of techniques to test colour combinations before they even start a swatch. For knitters and crocheters.
REQUIRED SKILLS: None! Come in fresh and bushy tailed!
