I hope you have a great week and if you celebrate Easter, may it be a wonderful Sunday! We will be closed this Sunday for the Holy Day.
Last week I wrote about what I’d wear to my first “official” Saint Patrick’s Day Breakfast. Well, Saturday evening, to ease my anxiety about the morning, and performance, I sat to sew a new top! Those of you you who know the benefit of sewing or knitting, know that I needed to do this. So I did. A number of years ago I knit Doug a lovely Irish Knit. He got a great chance to wear it last weekend.
Next weekend we going ON SALE! As we prepare for Spring and Summer Knitting, we’re putting a number of great yarns on Sale. Please join us starting Friday, April 1 for the sale kick-off through Monday, April 4.
On Sunday, April 10 we have a new workshop for you to sew your own knitting bag! Join Anne for an afternoon 1-3pm to make this great bag for $40 and prepare to start making them for yourself or others by the dozen!
In the meantime – we will see you this Friday Night for social knitting 6-8pm? Also, we’re cleaning our email listing, so if you opened this email, you’re all set! Thank you.
