Nice to know that I still actually remember how to knit!!! (and dye)
It has been some time since I have actually picked up the needles for more than a stolen moment here and there (or to help a customer) but my littlest miss has had a growth spurt and no longer fits many of her woollies…
So what is a girl to do?? Throw some yarn in a pot and then whip out the needles!!
Considering that I only allow myself to knit when I can’t be working I’m impressed that I managed to get these finished. Most of the knitting was done between the hours of 4am and 5am which is apparently when miss A thinks is a great time to wake up.
I have itchy fingers now and my mind has been running wild with ideas of cast ons, especially with all of the stunning yarn that has arrived at the shop in the past week. Apart from the Hand Maiden that I am lusting after…
We also received a delivery of Debbie Bliss including Baby Cash, Cash Aran and Luxury Tweed. *sigh* lots of squishing of the Luxury Tweed which I feel will become a hat for me very soon…
A very special delivery arrived late last week…a beautiful box of Whimsical Little Knits by Ysolda – one of my favourite designers. Each book is individually hand signed by Ysolda! One has already found its way onto my bookshelf.
We are still waiting on rather large shipments of Brown Sheep, Malabrigo and Noro – all expected this week.
Several classes started last week and a great time is being had by all! Keep an eye out for a newsletter with details of some new workshops about to begin!
