Leslie is knitting the Clapoti, which has never gone out of style, of our hand dyed Kona. She can't wait to drop the stitches!

Maria knit this hat out of Classic Elite Wool Bam Boo and said it is wonderfully soft.

The Fire and Ice Festival took place last Saturday, and unless you were among those who braved the crowds and found a place to park, this was the scene in front of the store; a nice young policeman and an icey sheep. It was one of the most hectic days we have had in a while. But we still found time to take pictures of custom er's and their p rojects.

Pam knit this undulating scarf of Cascade. She considers herself a new knitter, but I think this design might have taken her up a rung of the ladder. The soft curves of the design are pretty seductive. We first saw the pattern when a young woman came to our monthly meetup group last fall and was knitting it of a Woolbearers hand dyed. The valleys were one color and the hills another. It was fascinating.

Beth is knitting a lovely fair isle sweater out of Manos Del Uruguay. She was concerned that she was getting the stranding too tight, but found out it fit over her head perfectly, so no worries.
