It was a busy weekend, as the following pictures show! Forgive the blurry photography!
Doris knit this great top from Spring 2007 Knit n' Style. She used a Farmhouse Yarn. Detail below. It's perfect for summer!
More Rib Warmers in process.....

Sorry about the blurry pictures in this section. This is Brynn's wonderful rib warmer knit of Manos. She knit an I cord trim around the arms and is going to do the same around the edges. She altered the size and got a great result. I'm knitting another one out of a heavier yarn and it's turning out well, too. The pattern is easily adjusted to fit from small children to adults, as shown below. Kristen made this cute little warmer for a niece.

Kathe is knitting her's of Cascade 128. It gave the vest a wonderful, crisp edge and a great feel.

Gwen's wonderful Einstein Coat of Jamieson's Shetland. Her color selection shows how you can individualize a pattern.
Her mobeius with the 'picot' edging.
Rebecca's baby blanket; she is out of our hand dyed yarn, but I think I came close trying to match. (I hope.)
Sasha in rare, nonspeaking moment, perfecting her provisional cast on.
Monica's Shawl Collar sweater from a Jo Sharp book, knit of Cascade 220. It's her second, and she just bought yarn, Cascade 220 tweed, for a third. It's a beautiful sweater.
More Clapotis Action!

This one is mine; I ran out of Giotto, and rather than have to buy more, Myra found a skein of Isis in the same colorway, Frangipani, and it looks pretty good. I am going to try my hand at dyeing something to match, because I think I am still going to be short.
Arlene's using Woolbearers cotton boucle in Gold Dust; you can see the two dye lots distinctly, but we all like it.
This is Anne's, knit of Manos silk wool. It's gorgeous.
This one's Joanna's of Lorna's Laces sock yarn. The distinct color changes makes it look like moving water. Lovely!

Close up of Gwen's. It has to be seen to be appreciated. The yarn is lustrous and the color changes give the piece so much movement. It is a work of art.
Gwen's, all 70" of it.

More Customer Projects
Crocheted of Colours for Me, this beautiful blanket will make some lucky baby a safe and warm nest!
Carol is one of the most prolific knitters I know; she broke her arm after falling down some stairs, and is still knitting! She said using four double points has been the most challenging!!! Get well and mend soon, Carol.
Mom and baby color coordinated; note the green and blue back pack, the matching pram, the shirt, and then, the yarn she is buying!!
Donna is a sock knitting maniac after taking the two socks on one circ class. Here she turning heels.
Mom and daughter spinning together! They are a teacher's dream team, because they were on their own within 30 minutes.

Loved seeing the different clapotis(es)! How many skeins of Giotto have you used on the clapotis?

Lisa, I used two skeins of Giotto and one of Isis and still am not finished. The pattern takes about 800 yards and that seems to be right on the money.
