Summer is upon us! I can feel it in the air and on my calendar – which indicates there are (as of tomorrow) only 17 days of school left! I cannot tell you how ready I am for summer. Gardening, grilling, staying up later than I should, and of course knitting.
On the knitting end of things; I was at the Minnesota Shepherds Harvest Fiber Show today with my girls and we had a wonderful time. I found some fabulous new yarns that will be showing up in the shop soon and I was very inspired by all I saw. Overcome with a case of “startitis” (the need to start something new even tho you have many projects going at present) I decided that I need a new project to knit. Something lovely, light and simple. I remembered a wonderful shawl by Stephen West called Daybreak. I really, really like this shawl. I don’t, however, wish to knit it alone. Soooooo…. I decided to start a Shawl of the Month KAL (knit along), which means we can all knit this together – I know there’s a song in there somewhere. I’ll post my progress, pictures, complaints, victories etc… on Ravelry and Facebook for the world to see and so can you. It’s a great way to get a project going with a support group.
On the shop end of things - shop hours will be a changin’. Beginning June 13th, 2012 here are our new hours – I say “our” like there is somebody but me running this show.
Monday, Tuesday & Friday – 10am – 3pm
Wednesday & Thursday – 1pm – 8pm (note the later opening and closing times)
Saturday 10am – 3pm
I hope you all have a great week and happy knitting.
