I am not entirely sure how it started, but Saturday afternoon some of us in the shop began "re-naming" some classic movies and operas with knit-related titles. Submitted for your consideration are the following:
"Knitter of the Opera"
"The Knitter of Seville"
"The Good, the Bad, and the Acrylic"
"A Fistful of Needles"
"The Wizard of Alpaca"
"The William Tell Yarn-Over" (yes, I know the difference between an opera and an overture - humor me)
"Harry Potter and the Sweater Stone"
"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Acrylan"
"Harry Potter and the Half Linen Stitch"
"Five Easy Stitches"
"The Shearing of the Lambs"
"Strangers in a Yarn Shop"
"The Thin Yarn"
"Acrylic and Old Lace"
"Inherit the Winder"
If you wanted to register for Knitting Boot Camp but thought you missed it, there is still time tor register for the Friday sessions. Due to a scheduling shift the first Friday evening session will begin on 28 January at 5:30 PM. (The Saturday morning sessions are already underway.) This course is worth it - you will come away with a wealth of knitting knowledge, improved skills and some new ones, too, and a reference library of swatches and notes you will be able to use for a lifetime.
Recently in: Mochi Chunky - same luscious colors as Mini Mochi and Mochi Plus, in a chunky weight. Also recently arrived - more colors of the divine Fiesta La Boheme and Knit Collage's Pixie Dust.
Coming to the shop this week: the Noni felted handbags trunk show! I have patterns for everything in the trunk show, and suitable yarns. The hardware used in these items may be special ordered, or you may select your own.
Also coming to the shop: Wisdom Yarns and Universal Yarns! Wait till you see the colors! Even better, wait till you see the prices! If you can get something the equivalent of Noro Kureyon for 22% less, why not?
Purls of wisdom: some days you're the needles, some days you're the yarn.
