Knit, Purl and Pedi

Knit, Purl and Pedi

Something to sip, something to nibble, a little knitting and a little pampering. Doesn’t that sound like the way to spend an evening? It’s happening on Thursday June 25th 5:00-7:00pm at mani & nanny. Instead of leafing through a magazine when you’re having your pedicure, you can keep your hands busy by knitting. Our very own Katelyn will be on hand to answer any questions.

Please note that this is an adult only event, there will be no nanny on duty.

Call (415) 673-6264 and pre-book with a credit card to reserve your spot. Pedicure only – $30 gratuity not included.

Japanese Knitting Know How

New Japanese Pattern Magazines

We have many Japanese knitting magazines to thumb through for knitting inspiration! Also on offer are three Chart Symbols Discs made from recycled CDs by our very own Judy Sakaguchi. These discs are a handy tool for deciphering the symbols in the pattern charts. They’ve flown off the shelves, but you can always call to order if you’re interested in owning one. However, if you want the discs and the wealth of knowledge that Judy brings, then you should definitely sign up for her Japanese Knitting Pattern Basics class. The next session is on Sunday, May 31st from 4:00-6:00 pm. Check out the class schedule for more details.
