Tuesday night is usually busy here at the shop with after business hours classes, but this past Tuesday night was extra busy and extra exciting! Natalie Wilson and her cameraman from WGHP stopped by to interview several of our customers about knitting and stress relief. Click on the link below to see the video:
New generation knitting to relieve stress
Hope you get lots of (stress-free) stitching time this weekend,
We are opening today at noon to give things a chance to melt a little. My driveway is partially shoveled and I’m counting on Mr. Sun to finish the job for me!
I haven’t forgotten Part 2 of my snow day post. I’ve been knitting like crazy and working on a little embroidery and so have several others. I’ll fill you in soon.
Come see us!
We are open today from 10 am- 6 pm. The 6 pm is subject to change if wintery precipitation starts sooner than the current forecasters are predicting.
I’ve got several things on my needles and by my sewing machine to work on, but starting a new project is always fun. Today I am bringing home corduroy to make one last cozy girl’s dress ( I love Oliver + S patterns) and maybe some yarn to start this new project. The pattern is available for us to download for you through our in-store program with Ravelry. Come see what yarn I’m choosing!
This month’s Dream Club selection is Jilly with Cashmere, in yummy, denimy shades of blue!
This is a fingering weight yarn, 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, and 10% nylon. The nylon gives this yarn the strength to make a fabulous pair of socks!
I love the sweet neckerchief/kerchief! My first knitting project in Girl Scouts was a triangle kerchief knit from RedHeart Yarn, in the rainbow variegated colorway–hey it was the 60’s and I was 8! I think I’ll wear this one as a neck scarf with the triangle in front and the ties in the back…
I have peeked at the pattern and love the stitch used for the vine on the mitts and kerchief. I’ll have a swatch started to show you how-to! See you in the morning!!
Sweet dreams and happy stitching!
