Matilda needs a skirt!!

Matilda was made by my husband and stands just outside my store and I think she needs a knitted skirt. So I would like help to make one. I am inviting anyone that stops by the store to help knit it for her. You can knit a few stitches or a whole row or many rows whatever you like

I do have lots of odd and ends of yarn here or if you would like to contribute some fun bit of yarn you have kicking around feel free to do so. The more colours and the more knitters the better. So please stop by and help Matilda out.

This fall I will be starting a Sock of the Month club. This is something I have wanted to do since I opened the store. All the details are not in place yet but I will be posting them soon. As you might have guessed there will be a different sock to knit each month. If you think you might be interested please let me know. I am not asking you to commit to it right now just looking to see how many might be interested. I am open to suggestions as to sock patterns and method of running this.

We will be starting with a very basic pattern the first month. I am planning to have a group where you can come and meet once a month to get the new kit and we can all admire the sock from the month before and go over any new techniques in the new kit or there might also be people that will stop by to pick up there kit or people that can't get in that would like me to mail it to them. I am also thinking that people could sign up for every month or every other month , which ever works best for them.

Christmas Stocking Challenge!!

The tea cozy challenge was a great success and I will be having another challenge this time to make a Christmas Stocking. It can be made by any method you want. I ask that it has been made sometime this year, not something you have made many years ago. I will keep them over Christmas as my window display. As with the Tea cozy Challenge I will be asking customers to vote for their favourite and there will be prizes. They need to be handed in by November 1st. 2009. I know that seems like a long time off but time goes by quickly. so start creating and join in the fun!!
