Skulls & Picots & Lace?

Who needs hearts when you can make skulls? This cute number is a lace challenge entry done up quick on Rowan's chunky weight Cocoon. Man, I love a sense of humor.

Lots of firsts this week!

I just love seeing people wearing the garments they've made. This week I photographed three knitters wearing first-of-a-kind projects that are real successes. They were all beaming!

We try to help everyone be successful with their projects and want nothing more than for them to succeed. If Jan or I are both busy, there is usually someone else hanging around that will offer help. We have expert knitter customers that love to support others in their quest to become fellow experts.

And there was a first for me. I won a prize for my shawl at the Minnesota Knitters Guild meeting this past Tuesday. Yeah!

Spring 2011 Lace Challenge Update

L finished her first project for the Lace Challenge already! And she's cast on for another and itchy to win ; ) One lovely garment on a lovely person wishing for a lovely spring.

I had better hurry up and get the entry form designed. This is turning out to be a really fun challenge.

Someone else has told me they are finished with a lace project, but I've not yet photographed the proof. If anyone needs help getting their projects input into Ravelry, I'm more than will to help. Just come to the shop when I'm around. Don't forget to bring your Ravelry name and password so we can access your account. I'll even take a photo for you to use.
