Kids Can Knit Summer Camp!

Summer is here and kids all around Minnesota are enjoying the glorious warm days and long sunny nights! My two young girls love the summer months — it’s a wonderful time to explore, travel and learn new things. They each have a summer bucket list hanging on the side of our fridge, and I’m happy to report (as a fiber loving mom) that knitting is on both of their lists!

Do you have a young one that’s interested in fiber arts? This summer, Knit’n from the Heart is offering a knitting camp designed just for kids! Sign your kiddo up for the Kids Can Knit Camp running Monday, August 11th through Friday, August 15th from 10:00am t0 11:30am!

Looking for some inspiration to put that 20% off store wide sale to good use? Our staff here at Knit’n from the Heart has put together a list of favorite shop patterns and yarns for your fiber fixation! The Summer Solstice Sale is on for a limited time at Knit’n from the Heart — stop by between Friday, June 20th through Sunday, June 29th to pick up patterns, books, magazines and in stock yarn for your next project!

Julie’s Pick:
You can’t miss the amazing basket of Mimi by Lotus Yarns on the counter at the shop – but what makes this yarn so special?? It’s 100% fabulous mink! Julie is loving the Lace-Back Fingerless Gloves by Churchmouse Classics and is busily knitting them 2-at-a-time! The best part about Mink is its soft hand and beautiful blossoming fibers. You have to stop by the shop and check this out for yourself! Mimi by Lotus would be an amazing pick for gift knits – why not get started on that holiday list ahead of time during the sale!

Heidi’s Pick:
Heidi is head over heals for our chunky cotton Sprout! She recently picked up the pattern for the Manana Cardigan from the CEY Seaside Collection. The Seaside Collection boasts a number of projects featuring Sprout — and each pattern is ready for sand and sun! Heidi loves Sprout because it’s a fast knit and is easy on your hands in the hot summer temps! We have a beautiful selection of colors in the shop – stop by and get your hands on Sprout during our Summer Solstice Sale and start a summer project today!

Judy’s Pick:
You can’t take a stroll through our shop without noticing all of the beautiful display pieces – chances are pretty good that you’ve fallen for one of Judy’s as inspiration! Judy recently made the Jordan Top from Knit and Tonic out of a beautiful coral shade of Euroflax. Euroflax shows lacework beautifully, and Judy’s lacework stitches stand beautifully all on their own. Stay tuned for pictures of Julie’s Jordan Top made in Firefly!

Sara’s Pick:
Sara’s love of all things vintage sent her over the moon when she saw the newest booklets in the shop from Sublime. She has a lot of knitting for new, little ones in her family, so it was a match made in heaven! Sublime’s lovely selection of yarns and colors are simply exquisite, and since Sara loves the act of knitting as much as giving the finished product, it was an easy pick! Do you have a wee one on your knitting list this summer? Take advantage of the Summer Solstice Sale and pick up a pattern booklet and yarn from Sublime!

Pam’s Pick:
Pam’s been oogling Hempathy in the shop for months, and when she found the FREE Ravelry download for Buttercup, she couldn’t resist! Buttercup is a summer tee that features a fan and feather at the neckline. Pam selected Hempathy in a shade of blue and can’t wait to cast on! Interested in our stock of Hempathy and coordinating patterns and projects? Stop by the shop and talk to one of our staff!

How was that for a little inspiration? We can’t wait to see you in the shop! Happy Summer Solstice everyone – enjoy the long days and the Minnesota sunshine in between all of the raindrops!
