Designers in the making! :)

Everyone came prepared with swatches on hand, itching to start. Thanks everyone!!!

This is the inspiration to the class. It's a perfect fit, don't you think. And imagine it took a little over a week to finish. (was up to 2:00 am)

this cute baby blanket is one of our customers "work of art" knitted double strand of confort for a precious little girl.

this really cute shrug was knitted by Nickie in a little more than a week. It's Plymouths new chuncky cotton very soft. Perfect for the chilly evening walks at the shore.

The class for the top down sweater has been scheduled for Monday the 16Th and it's filled. Also we have one tentatively scheduled for Saturday the 21st.
Those of you that have signed up please make sure you have chosen the yarn and come in with your swatch. Thank you!
I have been working on my sample and will have 1/2 of the sweater done for you all to see.
How adorable are these boys! And guess who made those perfect little sweaters :)
We love making small little sweaters, especially when you have two adorable little models as Anthony and Nicolas Messina.

Mina's finished masterpiece

My photo taking skills do no justice to this gorgeous sweater that Mina completed. It really is a work of art. Knitted with Berroco's black suede deluxe.

Nickie's latest finished project. Its Debbie's "Como" together with Debbie's "Astrakhan". It literally took Nickie less than two weeks to complete.
As of right now we only are able to combine two colors a brown and a grey.
You have to see it and feel it. It is gorgeous.
A very popular shrug. Knitting loosely does have its advantages. Pattern free with purchase of yarn

One skein gorgeous cast on 10 sts and knit on size 11 till the end. Makes a great scarf/necklace!

Our new class list has been posted in our website. There are a lot of titles for you to choose from. The top down sweater class is already filling up. We might schedule two classes, a weekday and a Saturday. This class consist of you designing your own style of a top down knit sweater. You will choose which ever yarn of any weight and in our first class we shall shape it to our liking and then gauge it. In our second meeting we will have the pattern and begin our sweater.

Also very exciting is that we have Shari teach the crochet mitered square. It is one of Shari published patterns. She will have a sample for us to see at the shop soon.

A small sample of the cable shrug is on my needles. It really is a beautiful cable stitch. and
I am almost finished with the hairpin lace shawl.
