Woolbearers is so lucky to have Kay Gardiner, co-author of the Mason Dixon Knitting books and blog (www.masondixonknitting.com) present her Mitered Crosses Blanket workshop at Woolbearers on Wednesday evening, April 18th starting at 6:30 pm.  Cost is $30 and you will receive a copy of the pattern for the blanket (all proceeds go to Mercy Corps, a relief organization www.mercycorps.org) and a copy of one of the Mason Dixon knitting books -- just tell us which one you want.  Hope to see you there!

All the new spring yarns are arriving.

Here's a peak -- and there is more to come.

New Hand Dyed Flounce from Knitting Fever -- one skein for a gorgeous ruffled scarf



Ultra Pima Sport and DK weight from Cascade



From Classic Elite --- great pattern books and  new Seedling Paints and Solids




Schulana yarns -- Macaibo and Seda Lux.  Macaibo is a self-striping cotton/viscose blend and Seda Lux is Silk and lurex



I couldn't resist this free pattern on Ravelry called Wingspan.  I knit this one out of Lang Jawoll Magic Degrade sock yarn and am doing the second one out of Macaibo, a DK weight, so it's really knitting up fast.




The Guernsey Wrap (pattern by Jared Flood)  is progressing -- I just wish I had more time to knit!


Mia has been knitting up a storm. She started my beginning knitting class last October and  already has an Einstein coat under her belt and several other projects underway.


As you all know, we don't just knit or crochet at Woolbearers.  Diane has been busy weaving on her Rigid Heddle Loom.  Isn't this scarf beautiful?

Mia's coat is amazing! So sad I missed the March meet up and didn't get to see her progress in person!
