This Saturday is our Knit Out in Public day! Come and sit in the courtyard and bring your knitting, meet new friends and say Hi to old friends! If you have finished your Helix Scarf – some of you have knit two!! Bring it with you for a group photo! I haven’t quite finished mine, but it might be done for Saturday! I’ll still hang it around my neck finished or not!!
Last week the store’s computer was down and out with a really bad Virus! Our IT guy (Warren) got the store program up and running but he is still working on our internet. So we do not have internet access at the store at the moment. We hope that will be fixed soon!
Fiona popped in yesterday to show me her Malabrigo Scarf. She is working a feather and fan pattern and wanted to add some interest. I suggested beads! What a surprise!
Using a crochet hook and size 9/0 beads, Fiona is adding beads randomly to the pattern, just to accent the curves of the lace. She is very happy with the results. Beads are a great way to add interest and they don’t always need to be pre-strung. If you have some questions about the various beading techniques come into the store and see some samples.
