Saturday class

This Saturday, I taught a low key class at Unraveled on Contemporary Abstract Knitting. We had a great time playing with all kinds of fibers and yarns. As the day progressed, friends wandered in and out including Larry of Knitdad fame. He is always a delight to hang out with and I admire his subtle style of knitting and color usage as well as his dry sense of humor. Lisa (of L and H) came through and was working on a new project doing a monochromatic freeform sweater in cotton yarns which promises to be quite amazing when finished.

Additionally, Christine (Unraveled owner) picked out a large selection of Ozark Handspun yarns to add to her shop inventory in some great colorways. There will also be some new samples in the store to give ideas of what can be done using these handspuns in combination with other yarns. Patterns and suggestions will be available for purchase and some free patterns will be given away with yarn purchase of Ozark Handspun at Unraveled. Try to get in the store to check out the new yarns for a good choice.

This is a store that I consider my LYS even though it is an two hour drive from where I live. Not only is it a gorgeous shop with great yarns but the staff is wonderfully helpful and pleasant. It is located in the charming Old Town area of Monrovia and there are lots of great little bistros and restaurants within walking distance and delightful gift shops. In addition, this area is used in filming the television show October Road and it is fun to see the process involved with the production.

Oh, by the way, someone emailed me yesterday to tell me that the article in Belle Armoire magazine on my fleece shawls is out. I haven't seen it yet but try to get a copy and check it out. Happy knitting and crocheting!
