Our Amazing Knitters

Some of our favourite and most rewarding times in the store are when we see the finished projects of our talented students and customers. Here is a sampling of the recent accomplishments - all beautifully and skillfully knit.
Ann knit this lovely afghan as a wedding gift. Most of the squares were from the Great North American Aran afghan book. The picture doesn't do justice to the intricate cables and detailed travelling stitches. She is now working on a smaller version as a baby gift
Julia used Handmaiden Sea Silk to knit her delicate "Swallowtail" lace shawl. It is a work of art and a garment that will bring out compliments whenever it is worn. She finished it so quickly in just a few weeks. It's hard to put down the needles when each row adds to the beautiful details.

One of Jackie's summer projects, in Needful's "Kelly", was knit in lace from side to side. It will be sure to keep her fashionably cool in the final hot days of summer.

Mary Joe used Madil's 100% bamboo to knit her perfectly draped shawl. It is incredibly soft and will coordinate with all her fall outfits. She is a "graduate" of Gabriela's lace class and has mastered the techniques so well.

Lisa was eager to take up knitting again after years away from the craft. She has a special reason to be excited with a new family addition expected in January. She picked up the yarn one afternoon and a couple of hours later had the first special hat made for the little one. She came back to show us and couldn't wait to get started on her next project. We're looking forward to seeing the wardrobe grow as the due date gets closer.

Once again, well done to each and every knitter. Remember, we do take joy in seeing your finished projects. It is always rewarding to see the yarn come back as a lovingly knit creation.
