Spring, spring, spring!!!

Hi knitters,
I hope you are enjoying the weather today as much as I am. Can't wait for it to be 80! Below is a cardigan that Cindy made using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. It came out sooo nice!

The picture below is of Diana's bubble bag. She emb. some cute little flowers and branches on it. We love it!

This is a NEW yarn we just received for babies or anything that calls for sport weight. Its soft, washable and dryable, and the first four colors have a shine twist in them... The weight is a 2 (sport,baby) can be used with a 3-5 needle with 5.75-6.5 sts per in.

Ok now just keep in mind this bunny is the first thing I have ever crocheted following a pattern. His ears are a little wonky but over all, he's cute. The link for the pattern is below if you want to give it a try.

The bunny hat, everyone I show this hat to falls in love with it. I have made two so far and they are very easy. Several customers are making them also. Great for little heads! and adorable.
Pattern below Bunny hat pattern
For both these projects I used Berroco's Comfort Worsted.
I found this little mouse pattern on His name is Mousie. If you have a little one that might like this little guy just go to Raverly and search "Mousie". He was very easy and is very cute!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Donna

Hi knitters,

Have a few pictures here for you to look at. First, Sally is wearing her vest she made using Brown Sheep Bulky. (Shhh.... she didn't do a swatch and it fits perfect) Whenever we make anything to wear we MUST do a swatch if we want it to fit. That's what we are always told. Although now and then to be honest even if we DON'T make a swatch we might get lucky and it will fit perfect. Maybe we should have Sally buy us some lottery tickets! It's gorgeous!

This is a Market Bag made with Peaces and Creme. I found the pattern here I cut the pattern down from 14 rows at the top to 4. If I had done the 14 rows it would ave been down to my knee's! Love it, and plan on using it this spring and summer at the Hellertown Farmers Market and the Beach.

This is Kallie in her favorite hat... It's called Struan and it's from Raverly. If you are not a member of yet. You should join. There are tons of patterns for free and some for a few dollars. This one was like $3 and Kallie loves it. I already have her friends!
I used Gallway but you could use any worsted weight wool or cotton for the summer!

Here is another one from Its called Capitan. Mine is a little different from the one on Raverly. The kids wanted a shorter brim. Ya know... It's the style! I used Encore Chunky, but any chunky would do.

Here is Baby Afghan that Ginny made using Dreambaby DK. She is the crochet QUEEN. Its beautiful!

The pictures below are of a few things that Diana made. Love the bag!! The colors are beautiful! She used Plymouth Boku. The little pink bobble bag is adorable! We love it!

Just a reminder: We are here for classes Tuesday from 1030-1230 with Pat Thursday 630-830 with Diana and Saturday 1-3 with Pat.
Join us anytime!

Hi Knitters,
A few pictures to show you. Carol made the cute baby A-Line dress. She used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece and it is adorable. She also made the cute baby socks using Regia Silk. The second picture is of a sheep baby sweater and hat. A different customer made that set but darn if I can't remember her name. It came out adorable also. She used Berroco's Pure Pima. I will attach the pattern to your email.

Below are three projects done by one of our weaving customers. I don't know if you can tell but in the third picture there are sequins and glitter. She used several different yarns together and added Lazer FZ and Little Flowers. Love all of them!

Last but not least...Bonnie made this little Dalmatian hat for her grandson. He is so darn cute with or without the hat! She used Berroco's Comfort Worsted.

As some of you already know our class schedule was changed "last minute". I apologize for the inconvenience and if I had know earlier I sure would have let you all know.
New schedule: Tuesday 1030-1230 Thursday 630-830 Saturday 1-3
Also a great big thank you to all of you who understand the circumstances of the class schedule change and have voiced your opinion. I appreciate all of you!

Humans are ambitious and rational and proud. And we don't fall in line with people who don't respect us and who we don't believe have our best interests at heart. We are willing to follow leaders, but only to the extent that we believe they call on our best, not our worst.

HATS, HATS, HATS.... I'm not sure what it is with hats but I get addicted to them. I find a pattern that I like then I have to make 4 or 5 of them in different color combinations. I like this one a lot! If you need to practice short rows, this is the hat for you. You can finish it in one evening! I used size 11 straight needles. The white hat is made with Brown Sheep Bulky and the blue and grey one is made with Cascade 220 Superwash held double and 1 strand of Crystal Palace Kid Merino to give it a kinda tweedy look. The link to the pattern is below. You will be doing this hat in 8 wedges. As you can tell from my finished hats I only did 7 wedges because I have a small head!

I love this hat also. It is a chunky cabley (is that a word.....spell check says NO) hat. It's kinda saggy in the back bottom. We love it! and it was fun and easy. Good first cable project. This pattern will be attached to your email.
Last week I posted this little sweater only part way finished. Bonnie finished it and its adorable! She used Mission Falls Superwash.

March Class schedule: Tuesday 1030-1230 Thursday 630-830 and Saturday from 1-3.
