This and That

Posted by on May 22, 2014 | 0 comments

It feels it’s been so long since I last posted but it has only been a week. A lot has happened though….

Just a reminder that I am open tonight from 6pm until 9pm and will then be closed tomorrow until Monday night so I can take part in the Ontario Hooking Craft Guild Annual Meeting in Oshawa. If you’re able to get to Durham College on Sunday, the gallery is open to the public from 10am until 2pm at a cost of $10. I have seen some of the rugs that will be on display and I can guarantee you’ll be stunned.

The Fibre Retreat in Nova Scotia is full. In fact, it’s over full so I’ve started a waiting list. I wasn’t sure how this would work out but next year I will put aside two weeks for this. Thanks to all who emailed and called about this. Your questions helped me narrow down day trips and activities and I’m already very excited about all we will be doing.

There is still room in the thrum mitten class which is happening this Monday (May 26) from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. I am open tonight and you’re welcome to come in then to get your kit and to sign up but if you don’t see this in time and want to sign up just come to the class Monday half hour before the class starts which will give you time to pick your kit, cast on and knit your cuff. You need 3.5mm double points for the kit so bring them if you have them otherwise I have some in the store.

I have a few projects in my knitting queue for the store which I will be making into kits. I’d also like to start a summer knit along of Tin Can Knits cardigan pattern Antler http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/antler-cardigan which comes in sizes from 6 months to 4XL – – something for everyone. This beautiful cardigan can be made in Cascade 220, Cascade Eco+ or Briggs and Little but there are plenty of other options as well. This is close to the top of my knitting queue so look for it in the store in July…..hopefully.

I only have one person signed up for the ‘Abbreviations in a Word’ class in June. If you’re interested in this let me know by June 1st otherwise I will put it off until late summer/early fall.
