Inspiration from our Customers -

You never know who will be at our Studio when you drop by. 
Deb and her mom, Myrna, were knitting together today.
Deb is working on this Debbie Bliss Shoulder Shrug.
She is knitting it for herself in Paloma Tweed. 
This yarn is super soft.  You can find it right inside the front door knitted up in a pretty hat. 
 Getting gauge is such an important step in knitting. 
You can always sit and work on a gauge swatch with us. 
We'll help you determine if you need to go up or down a needle size to get that perfect fit. 
 Myrna is teaching herself the blocks that you see in our beautiful sampler.   It is also offered as a class. 
She is using browns and creams in her project. 

 Dawn is always smiling and willing to share her knits 
on our studio's blog. Thanks Dawn.  Her Kaul Cowl was knit using Zauberball and Madelinetosh yarns.   It is a Ravelry pattern.  Dawn gave the first one she made to her sister when she admired it. 
Then she knit another for herself, and another and another. 
That's a great endorsement for the pattern. 
When you talk to other knitters you often get the "skinny" on the patterns you are interested in knitting. 

 Holly took a moment away from winding yarn to let me take this picture of her delicate shawl. 
 Holly knit her Rock Island Shawl a few years ago. 
The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry
and is by Jared Flood.  I love the way she wears it with the points in front. 
Holly used Madelinetosh Prairie yarn for her shawl.
It is a 100% super wash merino. 
There are many yarns one can substitute for shawls.  Don't be afraid to ask us if the substitute will give you similar drape and effect to the original.  

Our next Knit Night is Friday,  February 20th. 
Do call ahead to reserve your spot. 
We had another great turnout in January. 
We'd love to see you join the fun.
