May Happenings

Bonnie has been working hard and finished the Tao/Parisiene shrug. Doesn't Natalie look nice in it? She was all ready for her prom and it was a perfect look for the picture.

Below is the finished Baby Tiger Stripe Jacket. This is the project for Kidlet Klub on April 30, then I will have the pattern for sale the week following. It can also be made in girly colors.

I have done my swatches for the For Me?! KAL. I wanted something in neutral (I know.....), I wanted it to have a nice hand and a little sparkle. I think I will use it for the office since it is air conditioning season already. Grrrr..... I hate the summers.

Upcoming Events:

So, as mentioned above, Kidlet Klub will be on Mondays April 30, May 14 & May 28 from 2-4PM. Upcoming projects will be posted.

Sock Club will be Saturday May 19, 1-4PM.

Accessory Clubs are on Fridays 3-6PM and we will also work on the various KALs. Call for details.

Workshops: Saturday May 12 & 26 is "Crocheting for the Knitter-Part I & II" -We will show you how to do basic chain, slip and single crochet sts and how these can be utilized to join seams, add edges, make fringe and add creative design elements to your knitted projects. Fun is guaranteed!

Specials Happenings:

Cinco De Mayo- On Saturday May 5 we will have Fiesta Time. There will be appetizers, prizes and lessons on how to make Ojos De Dios. Check out Jay Mohler's fantastic Ojos at Another great way to use scrap yarns.

Premier Dyeing Workshop-Sunday May 27 we will host our first dyeing workshop. The cost will be $30 plus your fiber of choice. We are very excited and will be working out the details all month so look for some of our "experiments".

Last, but not least, we ( Natalie) have finished knitting the Shibori piece so will be getting it manipulated during this week, felted on the weekend and hopefully, if it successful, it will be on display next week. Check out these pictures of Shibori by Jeung-Hwa Park.

Pretty inspiring. Hopefully, we will achieve something similiar soon.

Enough for now. Still have a pattern I need to write.

See you soon!
