We had such a great time at the DFW Fiber Fest this last weekend. These are pictures of our booth before it opened, and it looked 100% different by the end of the show. We were hopping most of the weekend and tempted many a fiber fan!
We have set a date for the Spring Spin In...Saturday March 9th. The spin in is such a fun time for us. We get together with our fiber friends and spend an afternoon spinning or knitting, choose your demon for the day. We set up a "Batt Bat" for folks to blend their own colors and fibers into beautiful batts to spin. Sheep shape cookies are always at the refreshment table. Do join us
My Cup of Tea socks are worked top down on dpn’s. Inspiration for these socks came from the “crocuses” pattern (p. 60) The Stitch Collection Book 5/Specialty Stitches by Debbie O’Neill.
The design is pretty but practical, following a basic sock pattern
but with a 24-stitch (12 row repeat) motif added down the front.
It is written with a 64-stitch cast-on, but can be easily modified
for fit using your favorite basic sock pattern formula. The motif ends
before the toe to make the socks comfortably worn inside shoes.
The sample socks were knit up with undyed panda sock yarn from WC
Mercantile that I crock-pot dyed using an assortment of tea bags,
resulting in both lovely and fragrant yarn ~ aromatherapy knitting ~ just my cup of tea!
Never knit before? Or know a few of the basics and what to progress to
the next step. In this Knitting Skills Class, we will get you knitting
and beyond! You will learn how to cast on, knit stitch and cast off.
Yarn and needles are provided for class; feel free to buy some to take
home to practice.
