I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

October Classes, Part 1

Happy Autumn, everyone! We will be sending out the October class schedule in several messages this month. The Wallaby class is back by popular demand, and starting soon, details below. Don’t delay in signing up, as space is limited!
Business is picking up due to the cooler weather. Lamb’s Pride is flying off the shelves at our less-expensive prices. We are waiting with eager anticipation for some brand-spankin’ new fall lines to arrive—any day now! Stay tuned for Part 2 of our October class schedule—it should arrive in your inbox in the next week.

Knit this easy, bottom-up “hoodie” with a marsupial pouch in sizes to fit everybody from babies to linebackers. In this class you will learn how to work in the round on circular and double-pointed needles, and how to construct sleeves, the hood and the pouch. Skills taught will include increasing, decreasing, picking up and grafting together stitches. You will need to purchase the “Wonderful Wallaby” pattern book. This pattern covers a worsted weight pullover with sizes ranging from infant to an adult XXL, so your yarn costs will vary. Several circular needles and double-pointed needles are required—please inquire at the shop for specifics!
