A Busy Time of Year

We have been so busy this month. The class list hit the web and everyone is checking in on their favorite classes.
The Iris Schrier class is almost full we have room for 2 more if any are interested. A 3 hour workshop with Ms Schrier teaching how to knit a reversible two color different cabled scarf (The sample is in the shop) We will be knitting it with a beautiful hank of hand dyed cashmere and a hank of silk with sequins and beads. Its gorgeous! You have to see it.
Today is the first day of fall and we will be celebrating tonight with our magic ball gathering. It's promising to be a fun night.
Lots of new yarns have been slowly dropping in the latest is Lana Grossa. In this bunch there is one yarn that is chunky that I can't wait to knit with it has the look of felt. Then you have the opposite another yarn that is thin ( size 4) but it is soooooo soft and luscious. I can't decide which way should I go. Also the new yarn Prisms Stuff or something like that is flying off the shelves (pegs) it is such a fun yarn and one hank will do the job. We just ordered more to make a cute Lacy pull over for layering. Can't wait for that to come in.
I told you its a busy time around here I need more hands.
Now here's the latest pix!

Check out Natalie - wearing her new dragon scarf knitted in Tahki's Alpaca tweed!

Look at Phylis! Her first side way jacket completed, we sure did have a lot of fun in this KAL!

Now this toy was designed and knitted for a special little baby its the coolest thing!

Artyarns/fall schedule

It's official Ms Iris Schrier will be joining us Sunday, October 18 at 12:00 for a workshop in knitting reversible cables. We are so excited, as you all know I love modular knitting from Ms Schrier book with the lux yarns. Just finished a scarf using the beaded/sequins silk, that yarn is just unbelievable and the pattern was so much fun. (both scarf and patter is at the shop for you to see).

Everyone has been asking for our class list well wait no more it is listed on our website. We came up with so many classes there surely something for everyone. We have some samples projects in the shop, and we are still knitting some of them up as we speak! We have been and are still really very busy bees.

Should there be a class you would like and its not listed don't hesitate to call us and who knows we might be able to accommodate. You all know we are very flexible and try to please.

Also Debbie Bliss fall issued is in and wow really great projects are in it. We are all knitting different things from it, Nancy is itching to start the tote bag with donogal chunky, Nicky will be knitting the cape with luxury tweed and I started the mosaic blanket.

Have you noticed this fall new colors are all sorts of reds deep reds, brown reds, orange reds, we practically have sold out of all kinds of reds, but also all jewel tones are up for grabs.

Well enjoy the autumn!
