Knitting 911

Having trouble with that cable or can't quite get yourself

to sit down and finish those socks? This is the perfect forum

for sharing ideas, encouraging each other with projects and life.

Knitting 911 will take place the 2nd Thursday evening of

each month from 7:00 - 9:00pm beginning March 13th.

The group will be guided by the fabulous Jen P., very handy with

the knitting needles and knows how to have fun to boot.

A "drop in" fee of $5.00 is suggested.  All drop in fees will be

Refreshments will be served.  Hope you can join us.

Just got in more of the scrumptious Twinkles Chunky Yarn.

The book of patterns: Twinkles Big City Knits, by Wenlan

has the most fabulous, fun, fresh, and feminine knits

with LOTS of texture.  Love that.

Our friend Nancy Baxter made the cutest hat

from one of Wenlan's patterns:

And I l-o-v-e the sweaters.

If you've made one, please stop by and show off.

We are big show and tell fans here.

And another thing...

I've been been getting a good deal of ribbing

from my so called "friends" here about this feisty firemen

print I recently purchased. Well, too bad for them if

they don't know F-U-N when they see it! I made a

wine bottle gift bag for my friend Karen and she

loved it.  The sky's the limit with the fun you can have

(think 40th birthday presents. Or 20, 30, 50, 60, 100...).

So that's it.

Whew, I'm beat!

  2. remember the first time I got one at grade school. My friend had just returned from a trip to China... she had bought them from a vendor at the Great Wall. So not only was it cute, but also exotic and rare. I took special care of it for YEARS... and then many years later, I find them on sale at CVS... :)


  3. Man. I don't know how to knit yet. Maybe I'll get a quick lesson from my mom and then stop by a Thursday night. What a great idea!

    I have been eyeing that fireman print in your shop, by the way, and once I come up with an idea for it, I will be popping in to buy some.
