The Special Event is nearing!!

Sign ups started for Kimberly's facial class!
We are so excited to host this event and it looks like its going to be a big hit.
the project sample (headband) is displayed at the shop everyone tries it on to see and feel it on. I love it I used it every evening when giving myself a mini facial, which you ladies know you should always do. I will also hand out the pattern for the spongies which we knitted in our knitterjize class. They go hand in hand with the headband.
Also I a almost finished with the hand towel, I knitted with Pure cotton from
Debbie Bliss. It will be a perfect addition to my basket of facial accessories.


I love seeing student's accomplishments!
This is Phyllis with her 2nd top down sweater finished. Phyllis used Berroco's Bonsay yarn, soft and cool to the touch.
Phyllis you look great!!!!!

In the Kitchen

Do you know how much fun it is to knit dish/wash cloths or towls?
I am enjoying it so much I am knitting up a complete set for each of my 4 children. You can experiment with different stitches and gauges. And how portable of a project is it!
The yarn that is my alltime favorite is of course Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton and now the new Eco cotton 100% organic.
Join me and see how many can we knit up in a month.

By the way the sale was great you all got some great bargains and I made some room for more yarns! Thanks for your great support!!!!!!!

I have to apologize, I have no pix.
We did though have so much fun, hence the reason for no pix, no time.
We had food, music, knitting and laughter.
"Knitterjize" is a great fun idea which might be repeated.

Also we talked about doing a granny square class being it summer and thinking portability. The class will be structured same as the knitted square of last summer, one square a week.

Well think about it if anyone is interested call Nickie.

Spring has sprung, more like summer right now, and its time to slip off some of those extra garments we have been wearing. No more heavy coats. But as we all have been complaining, we need to shed some pounds. I did the Jenny and lost 20 but you know what, the 20 is creeping back up, like many in Nonnas community. Therefore, we put our thinking caps on and we came up with a fun and easy game to play where we will move and knit at the same time.

Knit and move at the same time? You must think I’ve lost my marbles. NOPE trust me it is possible but only my way!!! Care to join us?
When: Tuesday, May 12, 2009 What: “Knitterjize”
It begins at 1:30 till…..
The cost: $30.00 Kit included
Refreshments will be served, and lots of fun will be had by all!

The space is limited to 8 people. Already 6 have signed on…………….See you soon !
