All you need is the wanting

About one week after Christmas, Shirley came into our shoppe. We had not met before and she announced that she had not knitted for about 30-40 years and she wanted to make five sweaters for Christmas and she wanted to start now. We introduced Shirley to Knit Pure and Simple and she started her sweaters. At this time, she has completed one sweater and has two more almost finished.

Kate is modeling the sweater for us. Shirley used Lamb's Pride Worsted and it is cosy. Makes me almost want some snow and a fireplace.

Laura knit this hat after our Lace Workshop with Amy.

This is the Picture Hat from the Gathering of Lace. Laura received this book as a give away and she promptly made good use of it. Her mother belongs to the Red Hat group and Laura knitted this for her. Amazing!

I told you we wouldn't lose Jill. She is making samples for our shoppe and this is her latest.

The top is knitted from Euroflax and the pattern is called Linen Top. Kate Coyle is also the author of the book Boho Baby Knits. A book we just happen to carry. Two skeins, easy knitting, and you are ready for summer.
