We are back in business!

Thank heaven, all is well with servers and other technical thingamajigs and is working again. I don't want to know all the ins and outs of computer stuff. I just want it to work. So, to those of you who tried to link to the store from the blog and couldn't, try it now.

Through a series of links, I found the following video podcast about a knitter who bought some buffalo roving, learned to spin, spun it, then knit a beautiful shawl, entered it in Rhinebeck last year, and won second place! I love the views of Rhinebeck and the gals' description of the knitted things she saw there.

Check it out.

We had a sock class tonight at the store; see picture above. Knitting two socks on one long circular. It was a nice sized class; nine students, and one great teacher, Chris. Everyone who takes Chris's sock classes love her. I took pictures of everyone's needles tonight, and will follow up as they progress, then post them together.

We also booked Nelda Davis for two classes this spring. Nelda is a Master Spinner who studied spinning with the Ontario Handweavers and Spinners Guild. Her classes are popular throughout the state and we are honored that she will take time to teach at the store. The first class on Saturday, March 8th is for students who are able to spin a stable yarn but wish to learn how to be more consistant in their spinning. The second class is April 5th. Nelda will teach all aspects of plying that day. We'll have more information posted about the classes soon.
