Update - September 24, 2013

I'm sitting here with the door open enjoying that fall breeze that is so refreshing after the summer's humidity.  I've been trying to get my hands on all that new yarn I talked about in my last note and get some fun classes together to get everyone excited about picking up their hooks and needles again.

I've made booties out of the Plymouth Merino Select.  The beautiful twist shows off my stitches so nicely and I'm sure mama will love that it's such a soft superwash. I've started a hat out of the luxurious Highland Duo, which is the solid color version of the Eco Duo which many of you made Sasha's Shawl out of. 

The 50/50 alpaca/merino blend is so soft and the solid colors are subtly beautiful.  As I have wound it several times, I have coveted the Marisol Ushya.  It's soft and lofty, super bulky but lightweight.  I have in mind a quickly project, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/greyfriars-oversized-pullover, to satisfy my craving for this yarn and fall-like cables.  Where else can you find instant gratification and cables too?

So, the Blue Heron man was back.  Oh my, I just had to get more of his delicious Rayon Metallic in some deep, rich colors for fall.  He had something new for me this time that I could not resist, a hand dyed rayon chenille.  It feels silky and warm and its sheen shows off the colors so glamorously. He provided a free pattern for a one skein, felted scarf or cowl done in an easy but fun stitch.  Come and touch it!

Celeste is making Simply, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/simply, out of the Yarn of the Month, Noro Cyochin.  This is another quick project perfect for fall and super flattering over a tee shirt and jeans. I'll be sure to 'borrow' it for a bit after she cast's off.

As always, the 30% off wall has some new additions.  I need the space to make room for new things so this win/win wall works for everyone!

With the exception of an inch of baby blanket yet to finish, I sent off all the baby items.  Everything came out so nice and I'm excited to have a beautiful girl, Keira, to keep knitting/crocheting for. I can't wait to meet her!

Sharon and I came up with a few new classes so check out the list and let me know what works for you.  There is still room in some of the classes starting this weekend so give me a call if you can join.

See you soon!
