10 Mar The lamb-like days of March
First order of business:
The Learn-to-Knit/Knitting Skills drop-in sessions have been EXTENDED to include the last two Wednesdays of March, the 24th and the 31st, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.! I had originally intended to just extend them for the rest of the Wednesdays in March, but next Wednesday is St. Patrick’s Day, which I’m told in Peterborough is pretty serious business. Thus, I assume anyone who ventures downtown that night will be doing so drunkenly, and not so much looking to knit! (However, if you’re looking for some awesome Beer+Knitting action, You Knit Yarn I’ll Knit Beats is happening again this Monday March 15th at St. Veronus – I’m very much looking forward to this one!)
In other news, it’s apparently spring now!
I’ve been enjoying these marvelous sunbeams every morning this week, not to mention the singing of the birds:
This is one of the two little birds who seem to be crafting a nest in this tree in front of the shop here… Is it wrong that I’m so tempted to sneak out at night and strategically place little yarn scraps in hopes that they find their way woven into the nest? I mean really, what little bird wouldn’t want a nest accented with little tufts of a blue and green variegated malabrigo worsted? 🙂
Just a few odds and ends, with LOTS more on back-order… It seems to be that time of year when lots of new colours are being introduced and everything is out of stock! Nevertheless…
Debbie Bliss Eco Baby, a 100% Organic AND Fairly Traded Cotton yarn, in the same weight and yardage as the Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, so all of the patterns for the two lines are transferrable!
Some new Malabrigo Worsted in “Pearl Grey” and a hint of “Butter” in the background. Still waiting on the “Ravelry Red” (I couldn’t resist!) and the “Velvet Grapes” that I ran out of last week…
And a few new Noro colourways for Kureyon and Silk Garden to round out the bunch! More updates sooner than later, I promise!
