Summer 2011

 

Summer knitting – let me count the ways…..

 

To me, summer knitting is looking through the new spring/summer copies of all my favorite knitting magazines

 

And choosing a new pastel shade to knit my favorite cotton cardigan

 

And picking a challenging stitch for that summer shawl, especially needed for those chilly summer evenings in the garden

 

 

To me, summer knitting is all about small light projects. The kind you can carry with you everywhere, even on vacation

 

Like baby garments, and hats, and especially socks. Lots of socks

 

Summer knitting is also for catching up. On all those unfinished projects lying around and cluttering my closet

 

Summer knitting means lots of knitting time

 

In the kitchen over my first cup of coffee

On the train, or in the bus, on my way to work

On my lunch break, on my coffee break

In the doctors office, waiting for my turn

In the airport, on the plane

On the boat trip, or at the beach

At the concert in the park

In the classroom, during the lecture

Watching TV, or relaxing in the garden

Summer knitting means vacation knitting

 

Because, in the summer, the days are longer, which give me more knitting hours

 

I love summer knitting

 

So if you aren’t a summer knitter, try it. You may even love it. Like me

 

And if you are a summer knitter, spread the word. Spread our love of knitting

 

Happy Summer Knitting

 

A special thanks  to our wonderful knitters, Shmulik, Naomi, and Olga for lending us their projects.

Don’t forget to come visit us before your summer vacation, and grab a pair of birch knitting needles or a palmwood crochet hook for knitting on the plane!

Last hot days of August

מאת נושאים כללי

Rosh Hashana is just round the corner – but you still have time to knit up some quick gifts for your loved ones. Everyone loves a hand made gift, and scarves are perfect for young and old.‎

Only 3 balls of our new furry yarns, 22 stitches on #8-9 mm needles, all garter stitch, and two hours later, you’ve whipped up a beautiful scarf for anyone on the gift list.‎

The shelves are packed with new winter yarns, and more are now coming in daily.‎

ֲ August 2008

Fall Magazines are also here: Interweave Knits, Creative Knitting, Knit & Style, Knit Scene, and Knitters have arrived, and Vogue Knitting should be in any day now. Please pick up your copies early, as quantities are very limited.‎

A shipment of wooden needles and various notions will be here in early September – please watch for the next newsletter, and let us know if there are any special sizes you would like put aside for you.‎

Schaefer Yarns are currently dyeing a special order for us – a beautiful range of new colors – in Andrea (silk), Anne (wool), Heather (wool/silk) and Judith (Alpaca). Please let us know if there are any colors you would like put aside. For those that were here during the last Schaefer shipment, and were disapointed that the colors they wanted disappeared before they could reach the shop, this time please check with us for exact arrival date.‎

Hope you all had a peaceful summer,‎

O.‎
