Piece of the Pi
How is your piece of Pi coming?
Brenda has finished two Demiluna shawls. Both are beautiful. One was knit with KIng by Noro and the other in Bearfoot Sock yarn by Mountain Colors. We haven’t seen many Demiluna shawls yet, but quite a few of our customers have shared their Garden Gate Shawls’.
Beading either of your shawls? We just received a BIG shipment of beads. Emily teases me and says that maybe we need to be called “Mad About Ewe Fine Yarns and Beads”! We have new colours of the Size 8/0 and 6/0 glass beads and more colours of the 3mm crystals. New to us are the size5/0 triangular beads. These beads are a little bigger and would be perfect for DK and worsted weight yarns.
We have recently crowned Janet the Fair-isle queen. After conquering the world of Kate Davies cap and shawls, she is now knitting a vest for her husband!
Bunjie has been combining kid silk haze with almost everything lately. Here latest is a gorgeous cowl and fingerless mitten set.
Andrea was in for the “Knitters Forum” yesterday morning and she was so excited! She has just knit her first sock! And it was perfectly executed!
