Spring is aMAYzing!
Come on May, let’s do the thing! I’m saying goodbye to heavy, warm makes in favor of cooler fibers and lighter garments. I’m bringing in new yarns, and putting light-weights on sale for the next few months. I’m so ready for all the bamboo, hemp, silk, and linen! How about you?
Since I’m sure you don’t want to miss anything, I’m going to make it really easy for you to find everything. Please have a look around the site, join the facebook group, share your pics of finished items from R&R patterns, and contact me to let me know of any suggestions, requests, or questions you may have.
Just as a reminder in case you were unaware, if you’ll look at the to menu of this website, you’ll see a page tab called “LYS.” This is the page for shop news. If you want to see what new yarns have come in, which classes we’ve got coming up, and if there are any sales going on, this is the place to be. I update it at least once a week, sometimes more, so if you’re not into facebook, just come on back here and check the LYS tab to see what’s going on! Go ahead and bookmark it so you won’t forget.
This month’s kit could just NOT be more amazing. Come on in and pick your favorite, because we are learning to read charts this month with the Tendril Shawl, worked in our newest line, Bamboo Pop Sock!
This pattern, written by Carmen Heffernan, is a gorgeous study in crocheted lace. The yarn is absolutely perfect for this light and airy beauty, a silky blend of cotton, bamboo, and nylon. You simply must join us! Come buy your kit now before they’re gone, and join us for the workshop.
Sweater-along Fashion Show!
Did you participate in our Spring Sweater-along this year? I sure hope you did, because have I got an opportunity for you! Wear your sweater and come join us for our Fashion Show on Saturday, May 22 at 2pm to show off your mad skills. We will be walking the “catwalk” and taking pictures, enjoying some made-from-scratch strawberry lemonade (seriously, I’m squeezing lemons, y’all,) and everyone who wears their sweater will receive an entry into this super fun gift bag full of goodies!
Didn’t make a sweater? That’s okay, you can still come be a spectator, and enjoy the lemonade 😉
A little something for summer, Double Dipped is a fun and flirty top that’s a cinch to make. Worked in DK weight cotton/linen, this top is crocheted using a lacy stitch pattern for the bottom to keep you cool while keeping you covered, and a solid stitch pattern for the bodice. Inspired by deep wading, the darker lace on the edging looks as if you’ve taken a quick dip to cool off. Add to that the flair for just the right amount of swing, and you’ve got yourself one killer top!
