Don’t Forget the Summer Sale 2.0!

SUMMER SALE 2.0 STARTS TOMORROW AND RUNS THROUGH SUNDAY.  All in stock yarns will be 20% off!
I am almost finished with ” True Friend ” shawl.  Loving this project!  It so soft!

So, my good buddy, Julie, brought me a new pattern to look at!  Thanks alot!!  So I am using Rowans Mohair Haze- 1 each of 14 colors.

I think it will not be necessary to use all 14,   but I want to see each color knit up! It is a simple stripe scarf that originally calls for each ball to be divided in half.  The first half of each ball is knit until  every color has be knit.  Then the second half of each ball is knit using all the yarn.  I am going the much easier route!  I am going to knit through the whole ball until the yarn is gone.  I am going to knit it on a size 6 needle and shooting for around 20″ wide.  More pics to follow!
ONLY 9 SEATS LEFT ON THE BUS TO STITCHES MIDWEST!  CALL TO RESERVE YOURS!!   BUS RIDERS-LOOK FOR AN EMAIL FROM ELAINE IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.  ALL QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED! 

DRU’S CLASS (SATURDAY)  FOR THE BEGINNING WEAVING STARTS AT 10 AM!! BRING A LUNCH!

I JUST COULDNT WAIT and A NOTE FROM BAD DRU


 

Special Note: I appreciate your patience as I work through the blog difficulties. I realize that some of you may have received this post multiple times this morning, but I wanted to make sure that all our loyal friends have the opportunity to get this information and take advantage of Summer Sale 2.0. The new posting software is in place and functioning correctly (fingers crossed). Although I know you’ll want to take advantage of our daily time sensitive emails from Susan in the shop about special arrivals, upcoming classes and sales; I am also giving you the option to switch to a weekly email list that will send out all of the posts from the prior week. Use the update your subscription option at the bottom of the email to take advantage of this condensed version of our posting emails. If you switch, be sure to check the site for all timely specials and notices from the shop. Once again, thank you for your patience!

Sincerely,
Bad Dru


I JUST COULDNT WAIT – REPOST FROM SUSAN

DON’T FORGET THE SUMMER SALE 2.0 is this weekend.  FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AND SUNDAY!  Regular store hours!  All in store yarns will bee 20% off!  This is to make up for all the problems we have been having with the blog this summer!  

Here is the project I choose to make with the new MORA silk from Malabrigo Yarns!  It is titled ” A True Friend”


It will take 4 of the silk and 1 each of 4 colors of lace mohair.  Here are my colors.

And here are a few suggested COLORWAYS!  All are gorgeous!

  


Here is what I have so far!

I have to admit that my first section I knit with the suggested needle size 7, but felt it was too tight.  So, I changed to size 9 to open it up a little.  Much happier.  It is much loftier ( if that is a word) and will increase my size.  The silk is going quickly, so don’t hesitate!
There are only 2 spots left in Dru’s beginning weaving class AUGUST 1.  Don’t forget the next level class- Hounds Tooth, will be AUGUST 15 and you need to have taken the beginning weaving class to take the hounds-tooth class.
