Drive-by blogging

Wow, what a week we’ve had!  Including (but not limited to) yarn crawlers (in crazy Classical hats, no less)…

Spartacus & Medusa

E tu, Medusā?
(I tried to fit “Spartacus” in there, but it just doesn’t decline right.)

Workshops like Kitchen-Safe Dyeing (lots of fun)…

Kitchen-Safe Dyeing

Really. Honest.

Kitchen-Safe Dyeing
Yarn Chop Suey, anyone?

And an amazing Sock Club kit that is getting rave reviews on ravelry.  (Say that three times fast)

Plus, we have a (small) Handknits for Tika progress report:

Handknits for Tika

Yes, Penelope is looking a bit poorly right now (sans ears and arms and, uh, legs), but she should be finished by next week.  I’m making her out of Rowan All Seasons Cotton in colors #239 (“Jacuzzi” – I wouldn’t make this up!) and #229 (“Wisteria”).  And, yes, for those of you paying attention, Penelope is not Sammie, as previously discussed.  I lost my copy of the pattern and we’re sold out.  Darn it. 

Also, Penelope is wearing Tika’s “The Republic” chemo cap, knit with ShibuiKnits Merino Worsted in “Peony”.  The (completely awesome) buttons were found down the street at the Button Emporium.

Hopefully, by next Tuesday, we’ll have a finished stuffie (plus ears and arms and, uh, legs), blankie square, hospital bed socks and hat to give Tika.  If you’re interested in contributing (even a 6″ x 6″ square will help!), please let us know and we’ll put you on the list.  There might even be prizes involved.

Next, we have an exciting stock update.  Remember those lovely and exotic shawl pins that literally sprinted out the door in November?  Well, they’re BACK IN STOCK!

We’re down to three of the Black Pearl Shawl Sticks, so I suggest that (should you have been coveting one of these beauties… like moi), run (don’t walk) to the Accessories section of our web site and get yours before we have to wait another two months for the next shipment.

Last, but definitely not least, be sure to tune in tomorrow for another fantastic edition of FashionknitstaThursday (trust me, I get to proof each article in advance) and check your inbox on Friday for a jam-packed Newsletter with new yarns, new books and the winner of our Cable Limerick Contest!
