The 10 Fingers Scarf

L. created this wonderful scarf from my 10 Fingers pattern and some Malabrigo Worsted in the Mariposa colorway. She took a great looking photo. I hope she pops in the shop to show it off soon.

Frogging for the Cause

L was running out of Malabrigo Gruesa for her cute shawl and only had a couple rows to go. Her father brought her by to purchase more of the yarn. Sadly, we didn't have any more on the shelf.

I spotted some of the same colorway which had been knit into a swatch for the shop. The swatch was happily frogged for the cause. L will have enough to finish up her shawl which she designed herself.

I must say that this is truly the perfect color for her. This young knitter just glows. I hope we see more of her and her creations in the future.

Vintage button show and sale a huge success!

This event was fantastic! We adore Becky, and having her in the shop was a real treat. The turnout was wonderful and to paraphrase C. D., there was a rather large cool people per hour factor. Thank you to everyone who stopped in to say hello. I even got to meet some fellow Ravelers.

Look for this event to happen again in the fall. Just in time to pick buttons for your winter garments and gifts.

Here's a link to some additional photos of the event.

Sleeves for a quadrapus.

I'm making this pullover out of Laseta (like butter). The first sleeve made my arm look enormous. The newly designed second sleeve was too tight. The third sleeve is just about right. So I'm planning to start the fouth sleeve today. It should match sleeve three. Size 11 needles rock.

March brings new yarn to the shop.

I went to the shop to do some cleaning before the start of our big button sale this weekend. While I was there, the lovely new pattern booklets from Classic Elite and Berrocco arrived.
Some new colors of Summerset and a few packages of the new CottonBamboo yarn came as well. Perhaps the remainder of our order will show up prior to Friday. Tomorrow I'll take some pictures of the new stock.
