Hope you are staying dry and not too hot. It is July already!
I decided to start the month out with a new project. I will be felting a piece – don’t know what to call it – a piece of fabric? - at the store all this week and next. I’ll be using the Artfelt paper and so if you want to see how that goes, drop by to see the process. I guess I will just be working on it between all the other stuff I do all day.
The next news is sad – for us, happy for Lisa – She has decided to find more full time employment and so is not going to be working here on Thursdays. Her last Thursday is this week and she is working Saturday the 12th too. She’s promised she’ll still come hang out some though …..I wish her lots of luck in her new job and I will miss her here. At least for the time being this means I am here on Thursdays and so that I don’t go nuts and can have some time off during the week I will be closed on Wednesdays. I don’t have the hours changed on the door yet, but this will take effect after next week when I get back from my class at the Appalachian Center for Craft –so Wednesday, July 16th I will be closed.
I am going to be interviewing for new Beginning Knitting teachers soon for Fall classes. Call me or come by if you have great knitting and people skills and are interested.
This Saturday is the Christmas Stocking class. Get started now making that stocking you promised two Christmas’ ago….. They are fun and quicker than you think. You can pick any pattern – we have some here and then there’s Ravelry too and I will help you through it. You could learn to fair isle or intarsia or just how to knit a sock. Do get a pattern that calls for worsted or chunky yarn though. Class meets Sat., July 5 and 26 at 10:30.
