Amazing Threads - a great time to LOVE fiber!
Its officially summer & school is almost done! Our days are longer and warmer but that does not deter my knitting. I might switch to a smaller project or a blend of cotton, linen, or Yak. But I must knit because my knitting keeps me sane! I loved to be inspired and so do YOU! Stop in often for a fiber fix. The shop is ever changing and we LOVE show and TELL! So share them with us on Facebook or through email so YOU can inspire US TOO~
AND, next week Angel and I head to market in Washington DC to finish buying for FALL. We have seen lots of the company reps and dreamed up lots of new ideas. But going to market makes the yarns come alive when we see them in finished garments and accessories. We will see new bags, notions, designs, art, ceramics, and more! Watch for updates and trends on Facebook & Instagram starting late next week!
Set against the backdrop of the world's tallest peaks, author Andrea Jurgrau's New Heights in Lace Knitting helps knitters create a beautiful collection of lace shawls and accessories and gain confidence in creating standout knitted lace.
