I’ve been sneaking in a few rows while Padraig naps, during summer concerts in the park (check out the gorgeous moss dogs and their rooftop garden on the doghouse),
and at the zoo
and also during any commutes where I’m in the passenger seat.
I am in LOVE with the sport weight cotton for this pattern. The stitch definition is amazing and the fabric hugs my hand perfectly. And the pattern? It’s 16 row repeat is so addictive! It becomes mindless at 4 row chunks at a time. I mentioned to Anne last night that it would make a gorgeous blanket, so I think that’s my next project. Barb has definitely inspired me to cast one on. Bring on the worsted!
Sarah had to give her summer KAL project a little break. It became a tangled mess and completely frustrated her. We’ve all been there, haven’t we!? Susan rescued it out of her knitting bag
and together they got Billow Cloud back on track.
Knitting friends…they’re just the best. And it’s always more fun to straighten out someone else’s project. For some reason it’s less painful. Maybe that’s just me.
Last night there was a lot of knitting progress sharing in the Wednesday night group and Anne text me photos so I didn’t miss anything.
into a little girl’s skirt is just too much! Isn’t this the cutest ever? All it needs is buttons and this little number is ready for someone’s first day of school. I’m seeing a back to school ravelry KAL brewing now. Go ahead, grab some sport weight cotton. I’ll wait.
Speaking of Barb, she showed up to knitting wearing her finished Ivar
in Shalimar Breathless. I love the color; such a fresh green. Bravo Barb. Bravo.
It’s been thrilling for all of us to watch these four walls become a fresh and inviting space for natural yarn lovers to flock.
Look how giddy Anne was the other day when she popped in to see the progress! We can’t wait for customers to see it! The wait is finally over…we open TOMORROW just in time for the hoards of people flocking to Canton for Football Hall of Fame festivities. Join us this weekend!
Directions and more details can be found on the new boutique page David set up here. We will have regular weekly hours starting soon and as always we are available by appointment. Just call or email us ahead of time to set something up. We can’t wait to see you! I think it’s time to start planning summer road trips…
