This will make you smile

Phoebe's Sweater, a picture book about the adventures of Phoebe the mouse, will arrive in the shop soon, likely this week.  The book appears to be the first in a series.  In this book, Phoebe's mother knits her a sweater; it includes directions to make Phoebe, a dress for Phoebe, and matching sweaters for Phoebe and her owner (sizes 2/4/6).  This is not only a great way to get young kids interested in knitting, it also brings the story to life for them.

The Great American Aran Afghan Knit Along is scheduled to start Saturday, August 21.  Please order all the yarn you want for this project soon, and make sure you order enough for the entire project to avoid dye lot issues. Recommended yarns:
  • Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted (21 Skeins for entire project)
  • Cascade 220 (18 skeins)
  • Berroco Ultra Alpaca (19 skeins)

The class list and schedule have been finalized - I am only waiting for complete course descriptions and materials requirements from my instructors.  As soon as I have all that I will post it here, on Ravelry (if I figure out how) and on Facebook.  Of course, all the details will be in the next newsletter as well.
