We have so many talented and gifted people among us. This week a young man came in with this fabulous sock. We sat and visited with him for awhile, and found out that he is a self taught knitter, and spinner. He is a student at Centenary College training to become a teacher. Every day it seems we meet such gifted and talented people. Linda and I want each and every one of them to feel welcome and wanted in our shop. Josh is this young mans name, and he has inspired us to push our knitting skills further, and maybe even spin! He has a drop spindle and we watched him yesterday spin some gorgeous fiber into fingering weight yarn. He is going to bring his wheel in soon and just spin. Drop into the shop if you haven't already we have the most fascinating and fun people coming in!
Our new Ashford looms are on the truck and headed our way!. We have 4 28inch knitters looms that we are going to be teaching weaving on. This is very exciting and a wonderful way to use the beautiful yarn that some of us ;) have stashed. AND how fun would it be to spin your own yarn and knit or weave with that! Thats a possibility that we are mulling around. Spinning might be next. We have so many fun things happening, and can't wait to get started!
Sunday night we will have Downtown Abbey night from 6:30 or so until 8:00, bring a snack if you would like, but more importantly show up and knit with us! Its a great fun time for laughter and fellowship! Hope you weekend is filled with laughter,warmth,good food and lots of knitting!! Come see us on Youree dr!
I am just a simple knitter who is living the dream of running a yarn store, where beautiful yarn is turned into wonderful products and friendships are knit together just as wonderfully! I hope to just share my joy of fiber arts and the joy of sharing with you, as well. Enjoy!
