 Kay Gardiner, well known Mason Dixon blogger, author of two knitting books, came to Woolbearers last Wednesday to give a workshop on her pattern, "Mitered Crosses Blanket".  I have never had such a positive reaction to  anyone who has given a class or workshop before. Kay told us lots of stories and gave a great  explanation of why we should knit blankets. 16 gals came to hear Kay and started knitting their mitered blankets. Doing each block is so satisfying. The only complaint was that it was too short a time.  Come back again --- we love you Kay!!

Meg finished her Rocky Coast Cardigan out of Cascade Dolce (sorry -- the yarn is now discontinued).  The  cardigan is featured in the Coastal Knits book by Hannah Fettig and Alana Dakos.  Meg did a fabulous job.

 Elaine finished her "Opening Night" pattern by Lisa Myers.  She used Woolbearers hand dyed Lanamira.  You could never tell that she was a fairly new knitter.

Yarn and Yoga -- Woolbearers will be starting a new yarn and yoga class on Wed evening, May 23 at 7pm for 4 weeks.  The first half of the class we will be doing Yoga with a certified Yoga instructor and after that we will start knitting our yoga socks.  Come join us.
