When you get a chance, check out all the wonderful knitting graffiti going on over in London. I love all their art. Here is the Knit the City link. Click on it now!
It has finally happened! I am knitting something for me!! I am so very excited! Making a few changes (of course!)... I can't seem to actually knit anything anymore without making changes... The main color is a lilac purple with white snowflakes and dark gray accents. The length is going to be a bit shorter and I am not knitting the bottom row of snowflakes. Hopefully, I will have enough yarn!!
Here are the new classes at Joann's for March and April. Check out the Classes tab for the class schedule! The Java Jacket is a quick knit and could be finished in class. The Pinwheel Dishcloth is a fun project! It uses short rows to make the petals and coils into a flower shape. Stop by the store to sign up. See you soon!
Great quote from "New Girl" last night...
"What's my one rule?" Jess said to Nick
"Don't touch your yarn."
Love it! It is now my new rule, too!! :)
Here is our project for the Mommy and Me classes at My Toy Garden. So fun to have a super long scarf to keep warm and cozy! Available yarn colors are hot pink, purple, green and bright blue. See you soon!
Great news! We will be having another class at My Toy Garden! It will be on February 22 from 5-7 pm. I am so excited! This should be a great class! Please stop by or call My Toy Garden to register. All you will need to bring on the 22nd is yourself and be ready to learn a new skill! See you later!
Wow! I am so excited for this class and I hope you are, too! We should have a great time knitting. Thank you for all the support and remember to support My Toy Garden. It is a great locally owned store with really fun toys! They will be having their "Mama's going shoppin'" sale starting next week, so check out their website for their good deals. I know I will be stopping by!
Tomorrow is class preview day at Joann's! All of my classes are 50% off with free yarn and needles for Knitting 101 and Knitting 102! What a deal! Stop by for a chat and sign up for a class.
Also, the Mommy and Me class is coming up at My Toy Garden. It will be so fun! We'll be starting on a sparkly scarf (knitting is a slow art) and finish it on your own. If you need help, you can contact me here at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or stop by on one of the Knitting Socials at Joann's. To enroll for the Mommy and Me class, stop by and see Janet at My Toy Garden.
Hope to see you soon!
I saw this commercial last night and just had to giggle! I would start drinking 5 hour drinks if I could actually knit myself a sweater in 5 hours!!
This one is a couple of years old, but I still love it! Especially the part where the sock monkey is getting "Mom" tatooed on his arm in blanket stitch! Too funny! The lady who knitted the sock monkey costume is on Ravelry, too!
Think about this for a new year resolution... learn to knit or build on your knitting skills in the new year. What a great resolution! Enroll in one of my classes and I can help you work on one of your resolutions! One of my resolutions for 2013 is to learn how to steek! I have plans to knit myself a Norwegian style sweater with steeks. I love the idea of knitting in the round instead of making a bunch of different pieces to be sewed together later, but I just don't know if I can actually cut my knitting.... So, it will be a challenging resolution!
