Welcome Sunshine - and Alana Dakos!

After what feels like a deluge of rainy weather, we are ready to welcome back some sunshine this Saturday, just in time to spend the afternoon with Alana Dakos!

Buttonholes and Bands Workshop
Saturday, January 14th 1-3 pm

Alana Dakos is a designer and author of multiple pattern books including Coastal Knits and Botanical Knits. Her designs range from hats, mitts and shawls to cardigans for women and girls which feature her signature leaf and foliage motifs.

If you have ever struggled with adding professional looking buttonholes to your cardigan or if you are new to the skill, you will want to sign up to join us in this workshop.

Alana will be demonstrating 3 different techniques for creating buttonholes, how to determine button placement and position a matching band.

Come by or call GYG Yarn Studio at (916) 899-5416 to reserve a spot!

Come see the featured knits from Alana's patterns in the shop. Here's a shot of Verdure, the plant motif mitts that I gifted a friend with this season. We carry Ms. Dakos' books in our shop as well as her single pattern designs including many of her hats and garments for children.
