A Special Knit Night

We had a wonderful "Nancy's Knit Night" last Friday! Lots of people came to knit (and munch on some goodies) in her honor:

Laurel brought some of Nancy's stash and, with this, we raised a nice amount of donations for The American Cancer Society and Wiawaka Holiday House to be given in Nancy's name:

Robin put together a great slide show on her computer, with pictures of Nancy at the shop and at Wiawaka:

And here are Christine and Sally with their version of no-knit cowls with some of Nancy's yarn!:


It was a really nice night and a great way to remember Nancy.

The next day, we had another Drop Spindle 101 class. Here they are, spinning away:

And here they are with their finished skeins:

More drop spindle classes are scheduled for May and June if you are interested. It's a great way to get introduced to spinning. And drop spindling is a portable/affordable obsession (I mean, hobby).

Customer Show and Tell:

Christina's first-ever non-rectangular-or-square project! This beautiful triangle prayer shawl made with Ecore in a drifting colorway:

Karyn's beautiful "Helleborus Yoke" sweater from the most recent KnitScene:
Amy's adorable Pebble Yoke Sweater made with Cashmerino Aran in a class here at the shop!:
Another class for this sweater is coming in June! Check out the classes here:
Mari with her wonderful mobius cowl:

Darla's second (or maybe it was her first, but felted second) Constant Companion bag with the added pocket and needle felted flower! How cute is that?:

Kathy's mobius cowl made with Willow Tweed -- so pretty:
And her wonderful entrelac scarf made with the now-discontinued Nature Wool Multy:
More on what I'M knitting in the next post.....

Ohh... *sniffs* Your memorial party post almost made me cry, and I'm not a big cryer. That photo on the laptop is the one I took when Nancy came to WOOL in '08!

What a wonderful way to remember a friend.
