108 Contemporary Yarn Bomb Knitting Circle

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 needles to match the gauge of your yarn.  Materials can also be purchased here at the store but not required for you to join this circle.

F.E.A.T. Sol Degrade Paper Poncho

In the month of April we are hosting Sol Degrade Paper Poncho a project in our F.E.A.T. series.  Remember F.E.A.T. is an acronym standing for Fiber, Explanation, and Tea.  We are offering the gathering in the afternoon on Wednesday, April 8th from 1:00pm-2:00pm.  The gathering will focus on the current project and we will discuss the why we chose it, offer an abundance of information on the yarn (Manos Wool Classica) and fiber, conversation, and of course, tea.  Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that it’s entirely free!  And not only is it free, but you will also enjoy the benefit of receiving a discount on the featured yarn if you choose to purchase it after the meeting. -B & Michael

Kika KAL

L & B will be hosting our spring knit-a-long beginning Tuesday, April 7th from 5:30pm-7:00pm.  We will be knitting Kika by Olga-Burava-Kefelian a versatile triangular shaped shawl that transforms from a garment to an accessory.  Worked with custom pattern that creates differently textured looks on each side lends this knit to be completely reversible.

You can check out the pattern by clicking here.  The name Kika translates to geometry in Japanese.  While searching for the perfect DK weight yarn for this spring knit we decided to knit our Kika out of Rowan Purelife Revive, a yarn that is made up of completely recycled fibers (silk, cotton, and viscose).

This is quite a large project so we are planning on four meeting dates over a four month time span: April 7th, May 5th, June 2nd, and July 7th, each evening is a Tuesday and we will be here at the store knitting from 5:30pm-7:00pm.  All you need to do to participate is purchase the pattern on Ravelry and buy your yarn at L & B Yarn Co.  This KAL is an awesome way to meet fellow knitters.

Spaces are limited so please sign up by calling 405-310-3636, e-mailing, or coming by the shop to visit. -B

Matchmaker KAL

L & B will be hosting the 4th session in our winter knit-a-long Tuesday, February 3rd from 5:30pm-7:00pm.  We will be knitting Matchmaker by Martina Behm a versatile triangular shaped cowl perfect for keeping you cozy all winter long.  You can check out the pattern by clicking here.  Martina picked the name “Matchmaker” for this project because she matched two of her favorite hand dyed yarns.  We followed her lead in matching one of our favorite fingering weight merino wools in contrasting colorways, Colinette Yarns Jitterbug.  This pattern is suitable for beginners or more advanced knitters because it is all knit in garter stitch, and lets be honest, who doesn’t love knitting in garter stitch.  This is quite a large project so we are planning on four meeting dates over a four month time span: November 11th, December 9th, January 13th, and February 3rd.  All you need to do to participate is purchase the pattern on Ravelry and buy your yarn at L & B Yarn Co.  This KAL is an awesome way to meet fellow knitters.  Spaces are limited so please sign up by calling 405-310-3636, e-mailing, or coming by the shop to visit. -B
