30 minutes to go…

until Fearless Leader and I teach this week’s Happy Hour class: The European Divide.  I’ve been practicing my English knitting (I still have some area for improvement) and the Norwegian Purl, which is a cake-walk.  If you’re looking for something to do this evening, this class is looking quite worthwhile.

In other news, I managed to corner some customers during last week’s Sip ‘n’ Stitch:

Sip 'n' Stitch

Literally, corner.  But, at least I have some customer projects for all y’all!  First, we have Jay’s newest in-progress design:

Jay's new pattern

I don’t have a name for it… yet.  We’ll have to wait and see.  Next, I also have Lew’s in-progress “Dad’s Sweater”…

Dad's Sweater

From The Knitting Man(ual).  Unfortunately, I can’t really read Lew’s (or is it Lindsay’s??) handwriting and am drawing a blank on the yarn being used.  Ah, well.  I’ll try and get a FO photo and info when the time comes.

Lastly (in terms of projects), we have a Monster for Tika!  Meet Penelope the Empathetic Monster:

Meet Penelope

(she was feeling naked without her bow, so we lent her some eyebobs!)
{I’ll get her a bow soon, promise!}

For those of you interested, Penelope was knit with one ball of Rowan All Seasons Cotton (not the three expected!) in each of Jacuzzi (honest) and Wisteria.  She was really easy and fun to knit (I feel a Danger Crafts! obsession coming on), so expect to see many more monsters around.

Wow, doing well with twenty minutes to go!  Next, I thought I might mention that we’re having an Oleana sale – all Oleana products are 40% off (while supplies last). 

Oleana Sale

If you don’t live in the area, give us a call (868-656-5648) for a list of the garments and colors in stock.

And, lastly, we have new Rowan yarns!  Oooh, the yummies…

New Rowan yarns

Expect to see Rowan Lima and Rowan Purelife British Sheep Breeds DK (that is a mouth keyboard-full!) in the next Newsletter.  Lindsay and Marjorie and I are seriously coveting the PBSB DK in the Bluefaced Leicester colors.  Just think of the gorgeous knit-and-purl patterns and cables one could make! 

But that is everything.  For now.  Check back tomorrow for another edition of Fashionknitsta Thursday!  Until next week, happy knitting!
