Shopping Saturday/ Squee Sunday/Making Monday

Friday I went to Stitch House's Knit Night with a new friend I made at our Monday Charlestown Library knitters group. I have a feeling that my new pal, Ms. L., will be great company; she is thoughtful, knowledgeable, knits with abandon, even on challenging projects, and acts as an enabler when out in the LYS. Maybe not a great thing for my budget but what fun we will have!
Maybe you aren't aware that Stitch House has a Friday night knit group. The deal is you show up with some WIP or plans to start a new one. You can bring wine or any other beverage, cheese or crackers, or fruit. You sit, you knit, you chat, and some nights you order out from a nearby Mexican take out place. It is good fun, inspiring, and friendly.
This particular Friday we arrived ahead of most of the others, and so we soaked up all the beautiful displays, squeezed new yarns, browsed the plentiful assortment of books, oogled the array of Amy Butler fabrics, buttons, and finished projects. Here is what it looked like.
|Hello hats! This is where we found the hat we couldn't leave behind. It is the one on the left.|
|Braided Swirl Tam|
|Jojoland, Fantasia. Hat pattern requires one skein.|
|Just one section of the Madelinetosh yarns. I got Celadon for a baby sweater.|
|Cascade Yarns are in plentiful supply, as are the books. Why wait for Amazon to deliver?|
|Shiny, fancy yarn with sequin and beads woven in.|
|I wanted this scarf too, maybe I'll get it during the Red Line Yarn Crawl?|
|This mohair scarf is made with beads; the drape of it is stunning.|
|There are so many samples to inspire you, in case you need an idea of what to make.|
