7 December 2012

I have been working on shop models and not blogging. Sorry about that.

I'm almost finished with Prism's Monet Jacket. I'm knitting the Jewel colorway but Laura will create any colorway you would like. So far the original colorway (why it's named Monet) and the Jewel colorway have been the most popular. But, if you want a purple, or green or red jacket she'll be glad to oblige.

The pattern for the Re-leaf Scarf has been tested and corrected. I've ordered more of the colorway that I knit the sample out of but you're free to be creative. We have in the second colorway called Apple Rose that will look beautiful. The sample colorway is called Wild Cherry. Blue Ridge Yarns  has several colorways available so stop by to see what they have to offer and I can show you the model in progress.

I've started MY double knitting project. It's from an old McCall's magazine. I would like develop a double knitting class from this project. If you've always been curious about double knitting, stop by and see what I'm doing. We can talk and your input will be helpful.

I know that this is a hectic season with all of the holidays coming. If you need to decompress from shopping, relatives, etc. just stop by the shop and sit and knit with us. You can knit away the tension and stress that this time of year might bring. The shop is a great place to pause and catch your breath.

Happy Holidays
