Better late than never..

Here are the sweater pics as promised in May. JoJoland toddler sweater , center, the paint box magic stripes in the upper right and the matinee sweater in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Baby, left.
This week I started the Pi Shawl in Knitters Almanac. I think everyone should make at least one in their lifetime. It's not fussy, can be done in fingering weight, it's in the round and you can say you've knit a lace shawl when you're done! Elizabeth Zimmerman was amazing. Her quick wit, very practical knitting tips and her writting style is fun to read. I love her books. Every knitter should have at least one of them in their library. So everyone venture into the math of knitting and read one of her books, you'll learn tons and actually use her formulas for designing your own items. It helps you make sense of knitting.
New in today...got some Fresco, a self striping 100% cotton from Universal yarns. Would make a cute tank for the summer or entrelac something. There is a pattern for an entrelac tank, kinda cool.

We moved the shop around so now the table is in the front of the shop. If you come in it may look like there is a class or something when you look in the window. Please don't let the people at the table stop you. You are not interupting a class. The table is just always full with knitters or crocheters. Please don't hesitate to ask for assistance if the 'girls' appear busy helping at the table. We are there to assist you.
