Bring it on!

Guthrie GetawayOnly a knitter, or perhaps a person who sells wool for a living, would be counting down the hours until the polar air arrives. I’m giddy with excitement!
Speaking of excitement, we had a fantastic time at our Guthrie Getaway this past weekend.  Laura Aylor, our featured instructor put on two fabulous workshops: a shawl design class and a top down sweater design class inspired by Barbara Walker.
It was a culinary experience, as promised! I honestly don’t think there is another event that can compare. For one, no one else is as insane dedicated as I am when it comes to things like this.
Despite the colder temps, get out and come join our Tuesday knitters tomorrow from 10-3. Lunch is on us! We have an insane amount of leftovers from the weekend, including French Onion Soup.
We’re a little worn out, but we’re gong to turn around and throw another party this Friday from 4-8. Don’t miss out on our Barefoot Knitting party! I’ll be preparing several dishes from Ina Garten’s newest cookbook.
I’ve spent the better part of the last week either shopping for food or in the kitchen. Despite this, I’ve nearly completed a new design that’s been in the works for over 6 months. I can’t wait to show you!
I’ve also been busy making costumes. Yes, I mean plural and yes I still only have one wiggly boy. When your kid goes to Catholic school, you not only need a Halloween costume but an All Saints Day costume as well.
This year he was a wizard for Halloween…
and Saint George for All Saints Day. Thankfully I was able to repurpose parts of his prince costume from 2 years ago. It was easier to crochet a knight hat than wrangle one out of tinfoil and duct tape like his other props. Berroco Lustra was the perfect knight hat yarn choice!
Saint George
Don’t forget to come eat lunch with us tomorrow if you can. We’ll warm you up with yummy soup!
