Since it’s raining and feels like it will never stop, I have a few new things to share with you that should brighten up your day.
Now don’t you feel better? Those are happy and bright, aren’t they? The top picture is a bunch of tape measures. From the top and going clockwise you see an owl, a chicken, a turtle, a black sheep, a brown sheep, a sock monkey, a bunny, a queen bee (she has crown even!). In the middle is a pig, and a bear.
And those stitch markers… OMG, right? From left to right you see sheep, lady bugs, bees and Scotty dogs.
We also have some little stuff keepers. The bags on the left come in a set of three. On the right you see a collection of ort containers. Leona tells me that ort means scraps.
Now how about some yarn? This is Scrumptious DK/Worsted. It is 45% silk and 55% merino, and a 241 yard skein costs $22. It feels so good, you want to snuggle with it. I was imagining the feel of it on my head as a hat…mmmmm. I may have to cast one on with apologies to my darling husband for another excuse to neglect his sweater.
And here we have some special yarn hand dyed by Ann K. You can take home some of this beautiful yarn for yourself. Come in and see the colors in person.
Some new books and patterns came in this week as well…
Upcoming Saturday Snacks and Skills Classes…
This weekend, May 4 is the Cable Without a Cable Needle class. We will be making a washcloth. You don’t need to know how to knit cables to take this class. $20 (includes yarn)
June 15 will be a needlepoint class. Dealing With Borders. Bring a project you are already working on. $20
It’s time for some finished objects…
Margie is one prolific knitter, and she designs some of what she knits herself. Here Deanne models a few of her most recent accomplishments.
Leona did some knitting this week.
And she managed to finish these owls, too. She hasn’t decided yet how they will be finished, but she has eight more to finish before she has to make a decision.
Georgie finished this sweater for her grandson.
What did you finish recently?
