L & B is excited to be hosting a knitting circle dedicated to supporting the 108 Contemporary art gallery in downtown Tulsa. The project is composed of knitted squares that will eventually be pieced together to create a landscape that will cover, or “yarn bomb,” the building’s façade. The project is entitled “The Unbearable Absence of Landscapes.” Please bring worsted or chunky weight acrylic yarn in blues or greens and size 8 needles to read more about the project details click here.
The meeting will by held at L & B Yarn Co. Friday, May 22nd from 2:oopm-5:00pm. Materials can also be purchased here at the store but not required for you to join this circle. If you can’t join the circle but would like to participate please bring your squares to L & B Yarn and we will deliver them to the lead artist. With 800 squares already complete, 3200 more need to be collected to finish this massive yarn art project! You can get updates by going to “The Unbearable Absence of Landscapes” facebook page just click here. I would also like to say thank you to everyone who has already brought squares to the store, we have a large amount of squares collected already, so excited!! -B

A project you can complete in just a few hours, what? You can’t go wrong with these cute little slippers, what a fantastic gift. We used just one skein of Cascade 220 but the options on color and how you knit them are endless. You can knit them with two different colors making the bottom a different color than the top. You can add an embellishment like a flower, button, or needle felt a design directly on the project. You can hold the yarn double to make a thicker slipper or knit them out of a chunkier weight. The pattern says using a DK weight yarn held double will work too! Such a simple pattern knitted either on straight needles or back and forth on a short circular the slippers have only 19 rows. If you are interested in joining us for some fun this Friday, May 1st from 1:00pm-5:00pm, we are offering a 4 hour workshop. This will be a fun time to talk, snack, and meet fellow knitters while we all make a pair of Duffers. The workshop is $25 and includes 1 skein of Cascade 220. Participants will need to bring a pair of size 11 straight or circular needles, darning needle, and the pattern. The pattern can be purchased on Ravelry click here. Just give us a call to sign up 405-310-3636.
