Knit Stitch

Stratford, Ontario Yarn & Craft Shop

Friday 05/06/2015

Very quick post as I try to get organized to close up for the week.  Hopefully I’ve spread the word, but a reminder that the shop will be closed for the day tomorrow, Saturday June 6, as I go to Toronto to attend the bar mitzvah of the son of some dear friends.  I’ve only been to one other bar mitzvah and that was when I was in high school, so I’m looking forward to it.  Elliot is a lovely kid all around, sweet and kind, and a great athlete as well, so he deserves a big celebration.

After the bar mitzvah I’m going to hang out for a few hours at the beloved Workroom  with some of my sewing/quilting friends at the first ever Sewing Date.  I’ve cut out a Scout Tee from Grainline Studio to work on… it’s very straightforward so I should be able to finish in the time I’ll have.  It should be an absolutely perfect day!

I saw this tutorial for Helix knitting on YouTube the other day…  it looks brilliant for creating stripes.  I can’t wait to give it a try.

This tutorial on picking up stitches is one to keep bookmarked… I’ve never seen stitch calculations laid out like this before.

Last week I was obsessed with broccoli, but this week it’s cauliflower!  Doesn’t this look amazing?!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone,
