Wallaby...May Newsletter Out!

Christiane knit this beautiful Wallaby by Cottage Creations for a 16 year old girl in Kazakhstan.  The yarn used in this project is Lamb's Pride.  She is involved in the group called Wool Aid that is a community of knitters and crocheters who create warm woolen garments for children who live in cold climates and have the least access to resources.  Christiane is thinking of having another class in this sweater sometime soon.  Let us know if you have any interest in this class.

May Newsletter
t's time for more classes again, and it seemed that socks were the favorite class for April.  This got my juices going and I started digging around looking at all my sock books that I've collected through the years and VIOLA....I found a book called "Queen Kahuna's Crazy Toes and Heels".  Many of you who have been in the shop this past month have heard me talk about this book.  I've made a pair of socks from it using  the toe up technique and found it to be my new favorite book.  I'm listing this as a class that I will be happy to teach and we will meet regularly and knit the sock together.  You will learn new techniques and be very surprised with your results and how much fun it is to knit.

Featured on the cover of the Spring/Summer  2010 issue of Vogue Knitting, this lovely capelet is perfect for spring and cool summer evenings. Its soft feminine design has an edging that can be folded back to form a collar. Make it in some of the beautiful DK yarns in the shop. We have a great selection for you to choose from!
