Spinning Room gear

In the hulabaloo of Rhinebeck, I completely forgot to take pictures of Joan, Yvette, Jane, Paul and myself wearing our Spinning Room t-shirts!!!! Here is mine:

We wore these at the booth and it was very helpful for people to see that we were the ones that could help them if they had questions. We didn't see any other booths that had such cool apparel. Just saying. (Maybe we'll be trendsetters.) I'm hoping to have these for sale in the shop soon, along with some tote bags.....
(By the way, I'm wearing a pin that Karen gave me that says "will trade husband's tools for yarn or fiber or whatever". I wore that pin home last night and Paul got a leary look on his face. ) The t-shirt logo was developed by David at who has helped me with my sign and business cards too. He does a great job. Also just saying.
Show and tell: (There is a lot of it because I'm way behind. If you have been waiting to see your projects here, I apologize!)
First is Jana because I have to tell you about this yarn:
This is the Starcrossed Slouchy Beret on Ravelry that Jana made with the DiVe Autunno yarn (mmmmm, merino). It is a new yarn I got in recently but hadn't had a chance to knit up a sample. So, my new, wonderful employee, Jana, knit one up! Yay Jana! You would not believe how nice and soft this yarn is - Jana said she loved working with it and will make another one for herself with the same yarn. The pattern is easy too!
Blanca's scarf that she made with Encore in the beginner weaving class:
We have another weaving class scheduled to start at the end of November - call me if you are interested!
Dorothy's hat made from handspun angora/nylon/wool blend:
It felt sooooo soft!
Nancy's wrap made with her own handspun laceweight yarn. We watched her knit this in the store for a long time and the result is BEAUTIFUL! Very small needles, very small yarn.

Sheila's short sleeved cardigan made with a Plymouth pattern, using Lamb's Pride bulky:

It came out wonderfully and now she is making a second one for her daughter!

Susan's gorgeous kimono, made with Encore worsted (a new colorway that has beautiful fall colors in it):
And her Mini Mochi socks:
This sock yarn has been flying off the shelves! I am currently sold out of every color but am expecting 8 colors in next week....
Three Constant Companion bags!
Carolyn's Constant Companion bag - her second knitting project ever! - which she made in a class here at the shop. It came out great with the button closure:
Amy was also in the class. She is also a newer knitter and here is HER Constant Companion bag:
Great colors!
And finally Dorah's bag which she made on her own:
She made this for an ice skater to carry her skates in!
Dorah also made this beautiful scarf with Mirasol Tupa:
This is her second scarf with this yarn because it is so wonderful to work with.
Here is Ruth in her felted hat made with Pastaza:
Very cute - she was in the shop to show me the hat and buy yarn to make another.
Kathy was away for a while and knitted all these wonderful things!:
Top left: Mini Mochi socks; Top right: Bird in Hand Mittens with Ella Rae Classic; Bottom left: Thorpe Hat with Katia Peru; Bottom right: socks with Crofter DK (self-fair-isle-ing yarn)
Her Pinkie Blanket made with Cascade 220 Superwash:
And her friendship shawl made with Silky Wool and started this summer during the Lace-a-Long:
Andrea's Valerie's Miracle Scarf made in a knit-a-long with the Princess Bride group on Ravelry:
Ravelry has a group for EVERYONE! How cool is that?
Stevie's fingerless mitts:
Her first cable project!
Sheilas first beaded scarf:
Very pretty! I actually already showed you her second one - she just hadn't gotten this one to me to photograph yet.....
Don't forget you can feel free to leave comments on the blog!
