Busy Weekend -- Saturday we had classes all day long. In the morning my Beginning
class was working on their Barbara Walker Afghan. 63 squares and all of them different techniques. We are learning so much!

We also had our Knit to Fit Class. As an added bonus, Marinel, who took the previous class stopped in with her beautiful sweater that she knit for the class. Karen was so pleased to see the finished product. It's beautiful! Now Marinel signed up for the Seamless Yoke Sweater KAL which begins at the end of the month. She is fearless now that she has take Karen's class. Marinel wants to do a cardigan instead of a pullover. So we will be doing lots of steeking! Can't wait to get working on that project.

Kelly had her Moebius Scarf class. Only one student signed up, but since she came all the way from Arizona, we just had to have the class for her.

This Sunday was almost as busy as last! MaryBeth Temple stopped in to show me her new line of mostly crochet patterns and to tell me about all the wonderful things she is doing. Two books are due out this spring and she and Doris Chan are sponsoring a Crochet Cruise in July. I have all the info at the shop, or you can go on MaryBeth's website at Look for MaryBeth's knit and crochet patterns at Woolbearers really soon!

The NJ SnB'ers came to the shop and bought lots of Malabrigo! It was great to see my old friends and meet some new gals. Sharon let me steal this picture off of Ravelry -- I was too busy at the cash register (always a good thing) to take pictures.. Thanks for coming in!

I did get a chance to get a picture of our usual Sunday crowd. Boy, they were a rowdy bunch!
Here is Donna in her finally finished Adult Surprise Jacket out of Nashua Creative Focus Chunky and take a look at those swirls made out of Ty-Dy sock yarn.

Anne finished her Jojoland Rhythm Rib Warmer. Anne is moving back to Maryland, but she just had to buy some of Woolbearers' hand dyed yarn to remember us by. Good luck Anne -- we'll see you on Ravelry.

One of Sabra's sock students stopped in to show off her completed first pair of socks and to get her sock pin -- Whenever Sabra's students finish a pair of socks, Sabra gives them a miniature knitted sock. Great job, Bridget!

Some other projects that I haven't had a chance to post. Here is a beautiful scarf made out of Jojoland Melody Superwash. Beverly and her husband came into the store today to remind me that it was Beverly's scarf. Thanks guys!

Kim made this absolutely gorgeous shawl out of Lana Grossa Chiara

Sandra made a Wrap me up shawl out of Rowan Tapestry

Bernadette's daughter-in-law, Fed stopped by to show off her Baby Grande Alpaca scarf
Bonnie has been knitting like mad on her Great American Aran Afghan. Teacher (me) only has 4 squares completed. Bonnie has 14 done as of this picture taken a few weeks ago. We have our class again on Saturday --- we'll see if she's finished all her squares.

Thanks for letting us raid your space! In our group, we believe Malabrigo is the wonder drug for any ailment. LOL. We love the stuff.
