August 2014

Wow...the food was so superb that we had a 3-way tie for the first place! Seemed logical that the only way to solve this problem was to award 3 first places!! So congratulations to (left to right), Denise for her Pineapple Salsa, Karen for her Enchilada Casserole, and Terri for her Apple Fritters. Each received a $15 store credit voucher. 

Elisabeth models her Rios Slouch that she designed using Malabrigo Rios in the Solis color. She states that her pattern will soon be available on Ravelry. 

Kathy knitted the pattern, Clincher,  using Malabrigo Sock and Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light yarn. 

Laura on the left, and Lynda on the right, model the cowl they knitted using Beverly's (center) pattern. The patter is called Positive Slope Cowl.  It's currently available on Ravelry. Lynda's cowl is presently on display in the store so be sure and check it out in person!

Norma finished her socks. Now who could be sad while wearing these socks??? Gorgeous and they go perfectly with her hair!!

Sue shows her adorable Puddin' Sweater that is knitted out of KnitCol yarn. 

I first met Sue's daughter, Olivia, a few weeks ago. She had just learned the single crochet stitch and was wanting to crochet an afghan. I immediately thought of my first afghan and suggested the basic ripple stitch pattern. Olivia chose her yarn and wow....look at what she has accomplished! It's not finished but I wanted to show it because she is leaving for college in Boston. Hopefully she'll come by the store on home visits! 

Karen has really been on a hat roll and cranked out two more hats since last month. The hat on the left is knitted out of Cascade 220 with some KnitCol scraps from a previous hat. The hat on the right is knitted out of Adriafil KnitCol.

Carol knitted this scarf using Six Simple Scarves by Lisa Knits,  and Encore yarn.

Carol also knitted a cowl from the pattern, Infinity Cowls by Plymouth Yarns. Eco Alpaca was the yarn used. Great work, Carol!

Not sure where Cambra finds the time to knit but that she does as evidenced by her many finished projects. Her son wanted a scarf for his friend and picked out the yarn and beads. Cambra designed the pattern. So pretty!

Cambra's socks are knitted out of Neon Now yarn and the pattern is Purl Ridge Rib, from the Vogue Ultimate Sock Book. 

She designed this sweater for her 8 yr old and it almost fits her! Yarn used was Cascade 220 sport and MadTosh DK. 

Hope to see everyone next month!
