Candy Sachet

This month we’ve decided to organize the majority of our classes around a Valentine’s Day theme.  This means that if you’re at a loss as to what you could give to those closest to your hearts, you’re in luck!  We are here to help.  Who says Valentine’s Day has to be all about teddy bears and chocolates?  Although, I could never really protest if someone wanted to make that day all about chocolate.

What I love most about this candy sachet is that there are so many possibilities as to how you can personalize it for someone.  Not only do you have the option of replicating a favorite candy by changing the colors, but you can also choose to fill the sachet up with something scented!  Lavender is always a wonderful choice.  Along with the calming effects of the scent, it also repels those pesky moths from snacking on our precious wool, making this a perfect gift for any knitter or crocheter.  Filling the sachet with cedar would be another excellent option for those wanting to keep the bugs at bay.  Personally I love the scent of rosemary and cinnamon, two items also known to repel moths.  You really can’t go wrong :)

If you’re interested in knitting this sachet for yourself or as a gift, we’re offering it as a two part class on February 8th from 3:30pm-5:00pm and 15th from 3:30pm-4:30pm for $25.  In this class, you’ll learn the magic loop method, yarn overs, increasing and decreasing, and icords.  So call and reserve your spot today! -Michael
