Catching up

It's been a busy couple of weeks with the Never Not Knitting trunk show and the Spring Fling sale. So, I'm finally getting to do another blog post. First, here are all of the hats (42!) and comfort shawls (5!) you all knitted to be donated to the patients of the New York Oncology & Hematology practice in Nancy's name: NYOH was very grateful that you knitted these for their patients - THANK YOU! And here is Borgie: He came to visit the shop with Alison the other day before he went to agility class. Isn't he so cute????? I haven't had too much time to knit lately but I did finish my Cloudy Day hat (a Never Not Knitting pattern, and there will be a class for this coming up in May!): See that little tiny ball of yarn at the top of the picture? That is the 1 1/2 yards I had left -- I was so nervous as I was getting to the end of the hat! I used Periwinkle Sheep Sock Dream and it is just wonderfully soft (with a little cashmere...). I had made my beaded scarf with the first 1/2 of the Sock Dream and was pretty sure there would be enough left over for the hat. It was close! The knitted flower class was a big hit - here are the flowers they made!: The Knitted Tam class was also a big hit and here are some of the participants and projects:




So pretty!!!!



The Katia Triana yarn has been a big hit!

Here is Betty with hers:

What a great shop. Some friends and I are hoping to come see you soon. What a great idea to rent spinning wheels. Do you give spinning classes too?
