Upcoming Events at Hank, a Yarn Boutique!



As things slow down for the summer,
Hank has an idea to fill some time.



Knitting Support 101

Is there a spot in your house that looks like this?

We all have those projects lurking somewhere in our house. If they are weighing you down, or it's just time to bring them back to the light of day, Hank is here to help.

Hank is hosting Knitting Support 101 on Tuesdays from 11-3. There will be staff on hand to help you with questions/problems, as well as support from other knitters in the same predicament.

We will even help you set a deadline if that will motivate you. Then as a little extra push, get that UFO done and get 10% off your next project.


More Beyond the Basics

Kathy J. has come up with another easy technique to expand your knitting skills.

Mosaic knitting is a colorwork technique for geometric patterns. Unlike traditional stranded knitting where you use 2 or more yarns at a time, with mosaic you work with one color at a time.

This shawl pattern, Strawberry Mountain Cowl by Kay Hopkins covers mosaic knitting, i cord edging and increases.

Class will be June 7, 14, 21 & 28 from 6-8pm.

Come on the 7th to get started, the 14th is a bonus week. Drop in to compare your progress, but be ready for the mosaic knitting section by the 21st.

Cost: $45 plus materials.


Summer is coming, here are travel project ideas

Pressed Flower Shawl by Amy Christoffers

Sophie Scarf by PetiteKnit

Ready to try mosaic knitting on your own? This pattern is set up for knitters new to mosaic knitting and/or charts. If taken on, must be willing to learn to read a chart. Choose 2 DK weight yarns, love the look of a multi-color with a solid background. Here is a totally portable travel project. It is knit back and forth from tip to tip in garter stitch with built in i-cord edges. The smaller size wraps once, larger can wrap around twice. Select a DK weight yarn to knit alone or strand a fingering and mohair for a softer finished project.



We're so happy to welcome everyone back for drop-in knitting!  With more and more of you joining us around the table, we aren't able to provide the same one-on-one help as we did when using Signup Genius.  Quick fixes can be handled at the drop-in table.  If you know you need more help, call the store to schedule an appointment to ensure staffing can meet your needs. Using yarn purchased at Hank, help is free; using yarn from another store, no problem -- there's just a $15 fee for a 30-minute session.


*We be will sanitizing the store frequently throughout the day.

*For the time being, our hours are 10-5 Monday through

Saturday and 12-4 on Sunday.
