Don't Attempt This at Home.....Ok, this was a first. Lisa had just taken Mom to the doc's for an EKG which showed a possible heart attack; they decided to stop in for a project to take while waiting in the ER. I was ready to jump into position in case my nursing skills, rusty though they may be, were needed. Please, don't anyone else do this. Go right to the ER. Lisa, how about some news?????
Ribwarmer in progress....not too thrilled with the way the colors are patterning, but it's too late now. The ribwarmer below was fine until the short row corners and demonstrates the reason why one should knit from two balls of hand dyed at a time, which I usually do.
I had to block it before I start knitting the I cord trim because the two sides are not the same size; must have been tired when I knit the first half because it's about two inches longer than the other but the same ridges.

Camille knit this Knitting Daily bag of Brown Sheep and used Fiddlesticks for the handles. Need a gynecologist? Her speciality is personalizing hormone therapy for her patients. See? We really are a full service yarn shop.

Need a big bag for overnight or those knitting projects? How about a Lucy Bag? Cheryl did this in Lopi and it is gorgeous. She chose Jameison Heather Aran for her next one. Can't wait to see this felted.

Lot's of new stuff came into the store today. Knit Simple magazine arrived and it has several cute projects. The Sox Stix from Lantern Moon came. They are beautiful, Rosewood needles in a handy fabric case.

The Douceur et Soie from Knit One Crochet Too is here, a lovely, light and airy kid mohair and silk blend. Want to make the Modular Quilt Wrap? Use this.

We got a new Sheep Shop colorway that looks like ferns and lichens.
