From my daughter Stephanie: "You will never be granted more time in your day. Find what you LOVE and START doing it!"
How is your "SELFISH KNITTING" coming along? Or did you decide you just had to knit for others? I have spent the entire month knitting for me. A luscious zig zag cowl in 18 colors of Malabrigo Finito, one of FAVORITE yarns.
I have been in love with Finito since it premiered. The softest Merino in luscious colors. I do have a few favorites but Finito always comes out in my top 5 and this month it has been #1. Isn't it astounding to think that a simple skein of Merino yarn and a great pair of Addi Rockets can bring such pleasure as I knit? I LOVE THIS CRAFT
I love the process of knitting. I may even stretch my "SELFISH KNITTING" into February & March.
I am going to get back at my Knit Swirl in Claudia's Handpaints. Check out the KAL in this blast! I started it in 2014 but put it aside to knit some blankets, hats, and more for my granddaughter McKinley. What a pleasure it has been knitting for that cutie pie. Check out her fabulous hat knit in Big Bad Wool.

Join ME for a Knit Swirl Knit-Along starting Wednesday,February 4 from 6-8 PM
We will meet once per month cause there is lots of knitting! Sometimes we will meet during the week and sometimes on the weekend. We will determine times and dates at this Knit Swirl Kick-off. Anyone knitting a Knit Swirl garment is welcome as as long as yarn is purchased at the shop. The first session will be cover cast-on and first steps. There will be staff at the shop to help you purchase yarn for your project before we start. Any questions, stop in the shop for details.
GARMENTS are here ONLY THROUGH Thursday, January 29.
Malabrigo - We received Rasta, Rios & Nube in the shop today! This is a partial order so if you are in need of something, GET TO THE SHOP SOON!
Our Shipment of Unison came in from Skacel. Once skein paired with a solid color and you can knit this fabulous scarf or cowl. Easy Brioche knitting that looks much more complicated that it is! Pattern Magalog is free with yarn purchase while supplies last.
A new yarn from the Skacel HiKoo line is SimpliCria and it is already on our shelves.
Cria is the name for a baby camelid such as an alpaca, llama or vicuña. It is derived from the Spanish word cría, meaning "baby." Why is this Alpaca yarn so soft? SimpliCria is made with the finest 1% of all Alpaca Fleece. In our Peruvian mill, Alpaca is hand sorted two times. During the first sort, the top 10% of the fleece is set aside as Baby Alpaca (21-22.5 microns). After hand sorting the Baby Alpaca, the softest 10% is then designated as Super Baby Alpaca (19-20 microns).
