30 May 2014

We had a great time at the PORCH PARTY so THANK YOU ALL for coming and making it a great success. I do hope that all of you had as much fun as I did.

Many projects were shared and there was much discussion and I'm sure a bit of gossip. But, that is what makes the Porch Party so fun.

We couldn't have asked for better weather. Speaking of the weather, as long as the weather is pleasant the porch is available for your enjoyment. When you're in town you can sit and enjoy a lunch and watch the world go by as you knit.

I would like to give a big Thank You to Ann Santerre for her wonderful dip that has almost become a tradition at the parties, to Pam Lamborne for her delicious Pumpkin Spread and to Courtney Bowes for the ever so popular Pimento Cheese Sandwiches - YUM. Goodies like those make me want to have more Porch Parties. Your contributions are always appreciated and welcomed.

The fall Porch Party has not been announced but will be in September. The announcement will be in the Fall Class mailer - stay tuned.

Again, thank you all for coming and making the party something to remember.

After shaking the rain off, it now feels like spring. I hope that this blog finds you without water problems.

Get ready for the Porch Party on May 24th – all day. I will have treats and iced tea for your pleasure. Come sit on the porch, enjoy a convivial day with fellow knitters, crocheters, needlepointers and quilters.

Two errors were found in the mailer. The date of the Cast-on class is June 28 (not June 8) and date of the Introduction to Knitting class is June 29 (not June 2). That's what I get for trying to get this done while on holiday.

I am hoping to still have the Prism yarn from Maryland Sheep and Wool here for your perusal so you can root away in the boxes and have fun.

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival was fun and I saw many of you there. If you didn't have time to stop and look at my booth I brought the show to the store.

So if you didn't have time to go to MS&WF, or couldn't go - it's here!

We have:

Kauni: Effekt
Prism: Stuff, Merino Mia, Euroflax Sport and Lace weight and Delicato
Mountain Colors:Weaver's Wool 16oz and 4oz, Bearfoot and Winter Lace
Fiesta Yarns: La Boheme, Starburst and Wrapture Kits (these are great for gifts)

It won't be here for long. I will try to keep the shipments as long as possible but this is a good way to see a large selection of colors.

See you soon.

Hooray! The consignment of Kauni Effekt yarn has arrived for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. If you don't know about Effekt yarn this is the time to get familiar with all of their wonderful color combinations.

Effekt can be knit at 6 sts/in for a garment or with larger needles for a nice open work stole. If you would like some ideas for what you can make with the Effekt yarn just hop over to Ravelry and view the 11,000+ projects that are made using the yarn.

This yarn is sold by the gram weight of the ball and the balls of yarn are of differing weights. It does help to know how many yards of yarn you will need for your project's completion. We have a chart with the amount of yardage in the differing gram weights to make it easy.

Do stop by my display and dive in. I'm located in the Main Exhibition Hall on the right-hand side against the wall, space D-16.

See you there!
