The Pet Parade (sponsored by the Altamont Library) was on Saturday morning in Orsini Park across from the shop. It was so cute to see all the different size dogs, participating in various agility exercises.
This guy very nimbly jumped over the low pole:

But this guy, uderstandably, had a hard time getting over the high pole: he went under. I think they should have reversed the order.

Meanwhile, at the shop it was a busy class day:

The participants of the Felted Sheep Tote class were here to needle felt their felted bags. Carol is making a cute sheep with a hat and shoes! Here is her work in progress:

And here is Cheryl's also-cute sheep:

And Allison went a different route, with a flying pig!:

Allison had a busy day at the shop, becuase she was also here for a stranded mitt class. The participants of that class had also taken the Anatolian Flip class to learn about stranding. Here are their results:

Allison with hers:

Linda's (she made two!) and Mary's:

The Anatolian Flip is a hat that could also be turned upside down and used as a purse! We will be offering this class again --- everyone in the last class agreed it was an excellent class for learning about stranded knitting and they learned alot.

Customer Show and Tell:
Allison has been REALLY busy... here is her Starcrossed Cabled Hat made with Cascade Autunno:

Eleonora's 8-hour baby blanket made with Encore Colorspun and a fuzzy other yarn:

Susan's socks made with Mini Mochi:

Barbara's Ishbel made with Cascade Alpaca Lace:

And Kathy's Leaf Pattern Fingerless Mitts made with Noro Kureyon:

This pattern coordinates with the hat, socks, scarf and shawl patterns designed by Deb Anderson.
