Happy New Year. In traditional form, I have been thinking about Resolutions and what we can do differently at the shop in 2017. We don’t want to over commit, so we are going to limit myself to 2 goals.
- Put our samples on Ravelry and increase our Ravelry Group presence. This is a habit we will have to force ourselves to do.
- Offer more technique classes. More to come on this. If there is a techniques you want to learn, let us know.
In line with #1, I guess I should share my completed Reversible Double Knit Spiderman Hat. While the effect is very cool, I do not think I will be double knitting again. It is a SLOW slow (and for me) frustrating process. Therefore, this WILL NOT be a technique class in 2017! LOL But I will post it on Ravelry..UGH.
Mom is working on a new sample or two and I have a couple of ideas for quick easy knits.
Again, I would suggest Shalimar’s Enzo Aran. The pattern calls for almost 1200 yards…but that is the total for 2 yarns held together. So it really would take 570 yds. so that is 3 skeins.
And if you want really quick instant gratification, check out the FREE Malabrigo Caracol Button Hat using only 1 skein of Caracol.
On a final note, if you are looking for PINK yarn for the Pussyhat Project, we have it. If you want some Magpie Domestic Worsted in Shocking (pink) and can’t make it in, it will be on the website. We have a few skeins left and will be restocked with more Monday. We have other PINK choices too.
Stay warm folks!
