First day of The Knit Clinic. Several people stopped by and brought their projects. We crochet and knit some hearts and started a crochet beanie. We sipped some wonderful Huntington rose tea. I bought it at the Huntington Library in Pasadena. It has some beautiful pink rose petals in it and a scent that will take you back to Southern California's golden age of horticulture - late nineteenth-century through the 1920's. Thank you Julie for bringing chocolate and raspberry biscuits perfect with the tea!
Made announcements about the Yarn Crawl coming up and Yarnover Truck maybe coming soon to Pasadena. I'll keep everyone posted.
The Knit Clinic is open on the fourth Saturday of the month from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM. RSVP is required.
Glad the weather has cooled off! Not good for us knitters. :-( I find when the weather is warm, many people don't know knit or crochet. Not me! I work with wool all year round.
The Knit Clinic opens it's doors on Saturday, March 23. The clinic hours are from 10 am to 12:30 pm. It will be held the fourth Saturday of the month.
I found there aren't many places in my area to go and get help with your individual projects in a quiet, private place, have a cup to tea and chat our ears off! How fun!
Please RSVP as space is limited.
Looking forward to this and I hope you do too.
Last Saturday was our third meeting at Women At Work in Pasadena. I was so happy to see eight people pop in with their projects. Everyone was showing what was on their needles. Nice to see some crocheters too!
Juliana brought in her beautiful Mistake Rib scarf to show us. It's made out of Brown Sheep's newest yarn, Lanaloft yarn. For those of you who don't know about Lanaloft, it's 100% wool, spunned and dyed by Brown Sheep Co. 100% American Made!
The majority of the yarn used in Lanaloft's line is from Colorado sheep.
Here's the link for more info:
Thank you to Brown Sheep Co. for sponsoring this event. Everyone who attended received a ball of either Lanaloft or Lamb's Pride yarn. How fun is that!
I also introduced the square circular knitting needles invented by kolláge. It is really true by what they say, "easy on your hands and more uniform stitches." I never thought I would enjoy knitting on these squared shaped needles but I do! I am convinced that it has helped me knit longer and more comfortable than with some other needles.
Susan Moraca from kolláge yarns informed me that they brought production back from China to the U.S. and started distributing the needles last June. I was thrilled to hear this!
Thank you to kolláge yarns for sponsoring this event.
