Stitch by Stitch, Row by Row

So, I bet you've all been wondering where I've been.  Well...the month of June and early July is usually filled with haying for the farm.  I took some pictures while on the tractor this year along with a few pictures of the farm.  So, hopefully if you click the following link, you'll get the Flickr slideshow:  Farm and Haying June 2012

In other shop fun, we're on YouTube!  Kurt (aka nancyshusband), our resident newbie Spinner and not so newbie Ukulele player has written a very fun song all about knitting.  He surprised us one night at our knit-in and he and his Ukulele playing buddy Carrie, played and sang for us.  Then...HE MADE US SING!  What fun it was.  Here is the link to the Knitting Song on YouTube.  Below is his first take just to introduce us to the song!  The lyrics are absolutely perfect.

Now onto customer show and tell!

Here is Darla's (we miss you Darla...feel better!) woven runner.  Woven on a rigid heddle loom, it's so soft and the colors are nice and cheery.  

Jane's mohair scarf with a ruffle made with Drifting Gardens yarn.  Her mohair pretty!

I'm not sure who the next lovely items belong to...sorry.  But it looks like the Summer Flies shawl and 2 car seat blankets.  I just love the orange!

Don't you love Janell's crocheted floppy hat.  It fit me perfectly!  She was lucky to get out of the shop with it!

Here is some of Kurt's hand spun.  The colors are just beautiful.

Nancy C. has been very busy.  You'll see more of her FO's below but here are her 2 crocheted wash clothes.  She took the Beginner Crochet class and came in the next week with them both done!

And her beautiful Cedar Leaf shawlette.

Here is Jane again with her gorgeous Summer Flies shawl made during a class here at the shop.  It was her first larger lace project and she did a great job!

Karen was also on a roll.  Here is her Sycamore Vest.  Just love that color...

... and her Clapotis.

Nancy E's iPad cover.  Don't you just love the color?!?

Oooo...and more of Kurt's handspun.  He's really getting the hang of it!

Here's Lisa G's baby blanket.  She's a new knitter...but you wouldn't know it.  She just jumped right into the blanket!

Mary Kate was also on a finishing kick.  Here is her Sycamore vest...

...and little socklets.  Very nice Mary Kate.  We miss you BTW.  Hope you are having a great time!

And Jan's Lolita made during a knit along here at the shop.  It looks great!

I'm not sure whose this is...Yvette is this yours.  It's knit beautifully.

This is Nancy C's Hatchling Dragon made out of The Perwinkle Sheep's Wink.  The picture does not do this shawl justice.  It is just gorgeous in person!

 And more of Nancy C's FO's...

Here 2 hats and a beard!  How funny!

... a car seat blanket...

... a Noro scarf made of Silk Garden and a hat out of Cascade 220.  So nice!!!

That's all for now folks.  Enjoy your week!

Beautiful projects!
I think the car seat blankets and shawl were made by Kathy L.

Thank you for sharing your photostream of the farm. What a beautiful setting. Lots of hard work and card on display.
