Happy Fall!
What’s happening in November? Here at Silver Threads and Golden Needles, we think of November as the month of planning and scheming when fiber artists prepare for the long hiberknitting period of winter. Check out November's classes to spark your imagination.

Choose Your Gnome Adventure
Do you want cute, knitted Christmas decorations? Why not knit yourself some nice little Christmas gnomes. Join mother/daughter duo Susan and Naomi Chester as they lead you through a Choose Your Gnome Adventure. 
Get ready for this $10.00 class on November 15th at 1:00pm. Do some stash diving or purchase skeins of fingering, DK or worsted weight yarn at the store prior to the class for your Gnometastic creation. You will be using the “Choose Your Gnome Adventure” pattern by Sarah Schira available on Ravelry for $6.18.
Felted Gnomes
How cute are these gnomes?! This class will be enjoyable for beginner to experienced felters looking for a quick and easy project. Join Lynn Hart on November 19th at 1:00pm for this three hour class; class fee is $25.00. The finished gnomes get compliments wherever they go and would also make perfect little holiday gifts for gnome lovers in your life. 

Beginning Hats
Have you ever wanted to try knitting a hat? We are offering a Beginners Hat class on the 29th of the month. The class is from 2:00pm - 4:00pm with Karen Edfeldt. The pattern is included and with your choice of two types of yarn the possibilities are endless. Call or stop by the shop to sign up for this class.
Assigned Pooling...
Are You Scared?

Assigned Pooling occurs when a change in stitch and texture is assigned to changes in color within a skein of variegated yarn. In this case, a simple Stockinette Stitch is assigned to the main color to create a backdrop for the cluster stitch assigned to the accent color. This beautiful shawl on display at the store is made from Fiber MacGyver yarns. It is the perfect example of assigned pooling. Every assigned pooling project will be as unique as the yarn you choose. Why not give assigned pooling yarn a try!

Sweater Weather
THE FIBRE Co. has beautiful fall colors in their Donegal Heritage Arranmore light blend of fine merino wool, cashmere and silk. Inspired by the scenery of Ireland's Northern Headlands, Arranmore is spun in a mill that traces it's roots to the homespun tween industry of 19th century County Donegal. The blend of merino, cashmere, and silk creates a lovely, soft, cozy tweed. The sweater is displayed in the shop and is a must "feel."

The Moulin Shawl

Created by Charles Gandy, this unique shawl was inspired by the simple but strong silhouette of the long forgotten windmill blades that dotted the rural landscape frequented by the designer. Moulin, French for windmill, an easy knit, showcases simple Wrap and Turns mimicking the local countryside.
