February Update

One Of A Kind Yarns

Christi Miller, independent knitting instructor and yarn designer, will be presenting our February 5th program. She will be discussing her One of Kind Yarns. You will learn the Why, the What and the How: The Why– Decision, The What– Inspiration, The How–Process. Her color combinations – they are sure to Inspire you for future knitting projects and stash knitting. Also, Christi will bring some stock to tickle your Fancy. Perhaps even your pocketbook. Cost is $40 for 200 yards per skein. You can also purchase her yarns from Yarn & Stitches.

Currently, the What Knots are her Knitting Group. She is an avid knitter and loves teaching knitting to newbies, reacquainting former knitters and knitting with her group. She lives in Plano with her family.
